Overview by GAK

The Taylor 324ce Grand Auditorium Electro Acoustic has a Tasmanian Blackwood back and sides, which has a similar tone profile to mahogany and the richness of rosewood, providing a clear and warm sound with a little top-end shimmer, with a strong overall volume and projection. The hardwood mahogany top delivers a clear and direct focus, initially providing a bright tone that gradually deepens the more you play.

It has Taylor’s signature Grand Auditorium body shape which is great for both fingerpicking and strumming, with a Venetian cutaway for easier access to the upper frets, and V-Class bracing which improves the volume and sustain, as well as the intonation. The 324ce has a Tropical Mahogany neck, which adds warmth and sweetness to the overall tone, topped with a durable 20-fret West African Crelicam Ebony fretboard, which comes directly from Taylor’s own ebony sawmill in Cameroon called ‘Crelicam’, providing them with a sustainable supply of high-quality ebony.

It has Expression System 2 electronics, which includes Taylor’s patented behind-the-saddle pickup allowing for a more dynamic range to be captured, and Taylor’s custom-designed professional-grade preamp, which combined provide a natural sound that brings out the acoustic characteristics of the guitar.

The Taylor 324ce is completed with a three-ring rosette, black binding and pickguard, gemstone Italian acrylic inlays, and a shaded edge burst on the mahogany top to provide a natural, rootsy feel.

Includes a Taylor Deluxe Hardshell Brown case.

Overview by Taylor

This darkly alluring cutaway Grand Auditorium boasts unique visual appeal thanks to its mahogany top, and there’s sonic magic under the hood as well. Our groundbreaking V-Class bracing enhances the volume, sustain and projection, bringing out even more of the natural midrange focus of its Tasmanian blackwood back and sides. While the natural compression of the hardwood mahogany top tends to even out the response across the tonal spectrum, the V-Class design boosts the dynamic range, especially in the upper register, and the in-tuneness of the notes everywhere along the fretboard is wonderfully consistent. All of these nuances add up to a versatile choice for gigging, practicing or recording across multiple playing styles. The dusky hues of the mahogany top project a rootsy vibe, accented by a shaded edgeburst, black binding, a matching pickguard, and muted satin-finish sheen. The guitar ships with ES2 electronics in a deluxe hardshell case.

    Exactly what I’ve been looking for! Good volume, excellent sustain, looks great and really versatile in regards to different playing styles! Not as pricey as Gibson’s and although I’ve previously played martins, they always seemed to be drowned out if playing in a band etc by other instruments! This Taylor has a great sound and definitely stands out in sound and looks! Wish I bought one years ago! Although I think the V class bracing is a recent development, I haven’t played it side by sided with an X braced version to compare but can’t complain about the volume, especially when finger picking compared to my previous Martin
