All-mahogany with excellent appointments and versatile body shape.
Taylor's mahogany-top 500 models, like this 2015 524 Grand Auditorium acoustic - with their focused midrange punch - have made a big impression on players. The natural compression of the mahogany top can handle the liveliest of pickers and strummers, and responds well to players with a strong rhythm attack. And because of its strong fundamental tonal character, it behaves well with other instruments in a stage or recording context.
The 2015 524 comes in a deluxe hardshell case made by Taylor for optimal fit and protection.
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.
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. Tropical mahogany is known for a meaty midrange featuring a strong fundamental without adding a lot of ringing overtones. It responds well to players with a strong attack who like dry, earthy, lo-fi sounds. It has a natural compression that smooths out strumming and picking technique. Mahogany's clear and direct tonal character makes it a great option for playing and standing out among other instruments.
