OVERVIEW

The killer look and aural warmth of Hawaiian koa in a large, full-sounding body.

Taylor's 200 Deluxe Series delivers all the essentials of a great guitar - exquisite playability, a full and articulate voice, impeccable intonation up the neck, and Taylor's top-of-the-line, professional- grade pickup - at a price that's within reach of many. This collection strikes a sweet balance between tasteful design constraint and aesthetic variety, bringing Taylor's signature tonal clarity and playability into a stage-worthy mix of guitar options. The Deluxe moniker refers to the addition of a fully-glossed body as opposed to a glossy top with satin back and sides. In addition, all 200 Deluxe Series guitars ship in a deluxe hardshell case made by Taylor for optimal fit and protection.

Body Shape
A Taylor original, the Grand Auditorium helped establish the Taylor acoustic sound. The popular body style makes for a versatile guitar that yields ample volume in response to light fingerpicking, and reacts to medium strumming and flatpicking with a clear, balanced sound across the tonal spectrum. If you want a great all-purpose guitar, the GA is an excellent choice.

Tonewood
A guitar's top is the primary filter and distributor of vibrating string energy through the guitar, which means it has a huge impact on its sound. Solid Hawaiian koa is a hardwood that produces a natural compression, yielding more of a controlled "roll-in" effect to a note. The compression evens out a lively attack for a more balanced response. It delivers strong fundamentals with clear and direct focus - similar to mahogany - but with extra top-end shimmer and chime. Layered Hawaiian koa back and sides create a visually appealing and complementary platform for the vibrating string energy sent by the guitar's top. Layered wood is less susceptible to changes in temperature and humidity, making it an excellent choice for players who travel with their instruments or simply require more durability.

Electronics
Taylor's ES2 is a revolutionary pickup design that delivers the latest in Taylor’s ongoing innovation in acoustic guitar amplification. The heart of the Expression System 2 is Taylor’s patented behind-the- saddle pickup, which features three uniquely positioned and individually calibrated pickup sensors. Because the pickup doesn't sit under the saddle, the bottom of the saddle comes in full contact with the bridge, allowing all the nuance of the guitar's tone to come through clearly whether playing acousticly or plugged-in. The location of the sensors enables a more dynamic range of acoustic sound to be captured than ever before while playing plugged-in. 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 favorite acoustic amplifier, or direct into recording software, the Expression System 2 faithfully conveys the voice of your Taylor guitar. The Taylor Expression System 2 operates through a proprietary 9-volt battery compartment and easy-to-use volume, bass and treble controls.

Hardshell case included.

Comments about Taylor 200 Series Deluxe 224ce-K Grand Auditorium Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

When I was seventeen I bought a beautiful Telecaster copy, to one day play some rocking music. It took a long time to save the hundred and ten cashews but I did it. I never took lessons, taught myself to read music long enough to realise that I didn't like to read music. Mostly tried imitating my favourite musicians.

About twenty years pass, then I bought a cheap acoustic that tortured me for a year or so, never really excelling at accomplishing any piece of work. Just recently I had an urge to research guitars once again. This time I had a goal of testing an instrument regardless of price. I visited my local music store and spent what had to be over an hour there. They left me alone, and I strummed chords on about fifty guitars. Then a few days later, I visited again and played the ones in the "glass room". These had price tags from 300 to $5000. I forced myself to ignore the price tags and to play each one. I had to decide which instrument felt and sounded the best. To my surprise, it wasn't the Martin! The Taylor sang out above the rest, just my luck they were much lower in cost. I researched again and choose the model, and purchased one online BEFORE playing it. Big gamble it was, but it payed back in aces!
