Classical tone meets Taylor playability and advanced electronics.
The Taylor NS24e is Taylor's first non-cutaway nylon-string grand auditorium guitar, honoring the aesthetic of the more traditional classical guitar body. The Taylor NS24e is equipped with a rosewood laminate body, Sitka spruce top, and an ebony fingerboard and bridge. The guitar also includes modern amenities like a sleek, fast 1-7/8" neck, a cypress rosette, chrome-plated tuners, and an ES-T under-saddle pickup.
The grand auditorium is Taylor's most versatile and popular guitar shape, excelling at both light-touch fingerstyle to full-blown strumming. Great for miking and recording, the grand auditorium NS24e guitar's balanced mid-range and bright tone exemplify the Taylor voice.
Taylor's ES-N piezo system offers high-fidelity amplified tone, unprecedented dynamic range, and extraordinary resistance to feedback and distortion. It enables all of the expressive subtleties of your playing to come through, just the way you intended.
Taylor's ultraviolet-cured finish provides the striking appearance, smooth feel, and lasting protection you'd expect to find on one of their guitars. Unlike lacquer finishes, Taylor's UV finish is resistant to cold-checking and is much more environmentally friendly. It's also clearer than lacquer and doesn't turn yellow”so wood grain and natural colorations are more distinct. The Taylor UV finish contains as many solids as thicker finishes, so a thinner application provides the same protection while still allowing the tonewood to breath. Plus, it ages the same way that we like a good lacquer finish to age, allowing the Taylor NX23e Acoustic-Electric Guitar to open up as it's played over the years.

Comments about Taylor NS24E Nylon-String Grand Auditorium Acoustic-Electric Guitar:
Intrigued by the nylon hybrid style guitar for jazz/light classical playing, I've invariably been disappointed in the unplugged tone of models costing under a grand. While the NS24e doesn't have the projection or warmth of my old cedar top classical, it's the best I've yet come across. Clear and balanced, good bass,--all in a slightly quieter, drier spruce top kind of way, mind you, but still nice. And although the recommended extra hard tension strings are less responsive, I find this forces me to concentrate on proper technique--a good thing, I suppose. Not yet having an acoustic amp, I find it sounds ok through my Fender tube amp... Taylor craftsmanship is superb. Even a lower end model like this is flawless. FLAWLESS!The neck and fretboard specs are exactly what I was looking for. It's a joy to play.Intonation --fine. Action--fine ( maybe a tad high for you electric players). The body style might throw off classical players, but it works for me. And a nice case to boot. Gracias, Taylor and MF...
