All-koa warmth and charm in a player-friendly design and budget-friendly price.

The Taylor 224ce-K DLX Special Edition Grand Auditorium acoustic-electric guitar combines the warm, balanced sound of all-koa construction with Taylor's revolutionary ES2 electronics for exceptional amplified tone. Built in Mexico, its premium appointment of solid Hawaiian koa top paired with layered koa back and sides produces a naturally compressed acoustic voice that's focused, articulate and shimmering. The Grand Auditorium body style offers comforting ergonomic contours for hours of inspired playing. Visually alluring as well, the 224ce-K DLX flaunts a sleek shaded edgeburst matte finish. Plug it in and Taylor's advanced ES2 pickup system accurately conveys the Hawaiian koa's organic resonance through any sound system.

Remarkable Koa Tonewood Construction for a Warm, Balanced Sound

The 224ce-K DLX's solid Hawaiian koa top is key to its memorable acoustic voice, compressing your playing dynamics for a focused and controlled response. You'll appreciate the koa's smooth, warm fundamentals blended with bright shimmer up top. The back and sides are crafted from layered koa, which provides a gorgeous visual bookmatch esthetic along with rock-solid stability. Together, the koa top, back and laminate sides create a light and lively feel with clear note articulation and impressive sustain.

Revolutionary Taylor ES2 Electronics for Natural Amplified Acoustics

Plugging in with Taylor's advanced ES2 electronics, you'll be amazed at how authentically your amplified tone represents the Hawaiian koa's organic resonance. ES2 features three strategically positioned pickup sensors that capture the guitar's dynamic range with stunning accuracy. The preamp has professional-grade active treble and bass EQ so you can shape your amplified sound. And the discreet 9V battery compartment makes it easy to change batteries. Whether you're on stage or in the studio, ES2 faithfully conveys the 224ce-K DLX's inspiring voice.

Ergonomic Grand Auditorium Body Style Provides Comfort and Playability

With its shapely cutaways and contoured edges, the Grand Auditorium body style is one of Taylor's most popular for good reason. The ergonomic design makes playing the 224ce-K DLX feel immediately comfortable and inspiring. GA's trim waist is ideal for seated playing, while the cutaway grants easy upper-fret access. The hand-friendly 1-11/16" nut width enhances your fretting accuracy and control. From live performing to leisurely practice sessions, the GA body provides versatility and playability.

Sleek Esthetics Complement the Premium Build

Visually, the 224ce-K DLX makes an elegantly modern statement with its shaded edgeburst matte finish over flawless koa. The fastidiously cut layered koa back and sides exhibit dramatic stripes. The ebony fingerboard, bridge and headstock overlay provide eye-catching contrast. Chrome sealing tuners maintain precise tuning, while the Tusq nut and Micarta saddle optimize tone production. It all adds up to refined, professional-grade esthetics perfectly complementing this inspiring acoustic-electric.
