Taylor AD24ce Shaded Edgeburst


Prepare to be captivated by the Taylor AD24ce, the latest addition to the esteemed American Dream series. This extraordinary acoustic-electric guitar introduces Taylor's iconic Grand Auditorium body design into this esteemed lineup. The AD24ce boasts the sought-after Grand Auditorium shape, celebrated for its versatility and tonal brilliance. Crafted with precision, this guitar features a neo-tropical mahogany top paired with striking sapele back and sides. This exquisite tonewood combination imparts a mellower and more nuanced sound compared to the traditional spruce, making it the perfect choice for singer-songwriters and those seeking an impeccable vocal accompaniment.

Crafted with Heritage and Dedication

In 1974, a young Bob Taylor embarked on his guitar-making journey in San Diego's American Dream guitar factory. The American Dream series pays homage to this era, presenting American-made, professional instruments built with the same values and spirit that have defined Taylor for over 45 years. The AD24ce showcases a solid mahogany top, complemented by dark, figured solid sapele back and sides. Taylor's neo-tropical mahogany is renowned for its deep bass, rich midrange, and distinctive dark hue. The sapele back and sides contribute a unique harmonic character to the guitar's voice, delivering powerful projection and character.

Exceptional Playability and Stage-Ready Electronics

The AD24ce boasts a neo-tropical mahogany neck with Taylor's lightning-fast Standard carve, topped with an elegant 15-inch-radius smoked eucalyptus fingerboard. Featuring a 1.75-inch nut width, it accommodates fingerstyle players while maintaining comfort for flatpickers and strummers alike. If you need to amplify your sound, the Taylor Expression System 2 (ES2) electronics are seamlessly integrated, offering precise and transparent sound reproduction. With a convenient master volume knob, a 2-band EQ, and a phase switch, this guitar is prepped for the stage and exceptionally versatile.
