Taylor Builder's Edition 324ce Grand Auditorium -  Tobacco Kona Burst

Taylor Builder's Edition 324ce: Innovating Acoustic Excellence

The Taylor Builder's Edition 324ce represents a leap forward in both guitar design and responsible wood-sourcing. Crafted with locally and responsibly sourced Urban Ash for the back and sides, this Grand Auditorium model is paired with a tropical mahogany top that delivers a focused, punchy midrange response and natural compression to even out dynamic attacks. Builder's Edition appointments include a Silent Satin finish, beveled armrest and cutaway, and chamfered body edge treatment, all designed to provide a relaxed playing experience and a clean sound.

Superior Playability with Advanced Features

The Builder's Edition 324ce is designed for superior playability, featuring Taylor's V-Class bracing that powers this model to produce powerful volume and long, blooming sustain. The Silent Satin finish, along with the beveled armrest and chamfered body edges, ensures maximum comfort during extended playing sessions. These enhancements not only improve the tactile feel of the guitar but also contribute to its overall tonal clarity and projection, making it a joy to play.

Exceptional Tone with Tropical Mahogany

Tropical mahogany is a refreshing alternative to the more common spruce tops, providing natural compression and a thick midrange bump in the tonal EQ. This characteristic makes the Builder's Edition 324ce a popular choice for blues players or anyone seeking a bold, earthy sound. The combination of Urban Ash and mahogany offers a unique tonal palette that stands out across various musical genres, adding depth and richness to your sound.

Premium Appointments and Electronics

The Builder's Edition 324ce is adorned with Compass inlays in faux pearl and Italian acrylic, Gotoh 510 tuners with a super-precise 21:1 gear ratio, and ES2 electronics for plug-and-play amplified sound. The Silent Satin finish with a dark edgeburst treatment ensures an ultra-clean, noise-free sound, enhancing the guitar's overall performance. This model also comes with a deluxe Taylor hardshell case, ensuring your guitar is protected wherever you take it.
