The Taylor 224ce DLX K Grand Auditorium Electro Acoustic Guitar (2017) is elegantly crafted with a Hawaiian koa top, paired with a layered koa body. Both choices of tonewoods offer a variety of warm, sweet tones, along with a climate-resilient construction. A Grand Auditorium body produces balanced tones and strong projection, and is perfect for players who specialise in fingerpicking styles. The 224ce is also equipped with Expression System 2 electronics, delivering a faithful representation of your true tone when used with an amplifier. This eye-catching guitar is perfectly built for any level of player, and its climate-resilient structure is ideal for travelling musicians.
The Grand Auditorium is an original Taylor design that was introduced in 1994. It is one of Taylor’s most popular and versatile body shapes, due to producing an original acoustic voice that is big enough to handle medium-strength picking and strumming. It features an impressive balance across the tonal spectrum, especially in the midrange, producing clear, well-defined notes that suited both strumming and fingerstyle playing. It is particularly an ideal choice for singer-songwriters who require a versatile instrument for composing and travelling with one guitar.
The Venetian Cutaway is renowned for its soft, round lines, creating a visually stunning look that is recognisable on any body. This type of cutaway allows easier access to the upper frets for a comfortable play, and enables you with more freedom throughout the fingerboard.
The 224ce K DLX features a Hawaiian koa top, paired with a layered koa body for an eye-catching guitar that will stand out on any stage. The stunning koa top delivers a bright and focused tone that will mature into a warm, rich, sweet sound with age, while the layered koa body incorporates three layers of wood, with a poplar middle core in the centre. This layered construction also offers a climate-resilient construction, ideal for travelling musicians.
A significant factor behind the incredible sound of the 224ce K DLX is the forward shifted bracing pattern, which allows the tonewoods to vibrate naturally, creating incredible depth and complexity. The 'x' in the bracing pattern is moved closer to the soundhole, enabling more of the guitar top to vibrate, delivering maximum tonal quality and projection.
The Taylor Expression System 2 is a revolutionary pickup design that delivers the latest in Taylor's ongoing innovation in acoustic guitar amplification. The heart of the ES2 is Taylor's proprietary behind-the-saddle pickup, which features three uniquely positioned and individually calibrated pickup sensors. The location of the sensors enables a more dynamic range of acoustic sound to be captured than ever before. Together with Taylor's custom designed professional audio grade preamp, this system produces exceptional amplified tone and responsiveness. On stage through a PA, plugged into your favourite acoustic amplifier, or direct into recording software, the Expression System 2 faithfully conveys the voice of your Taylor guitar.
