Overview

Acoustic-Electric Guitar with Sustainably Sourced Urban Ash Body, Tropical Mahogany Top, West African Ebony Fingerboard and Bridge and Taylor ES2 Electronics.

The Taylor Builder's Edition 324ce pairs the latest in Taylor's acoustic innovations with premium esthetic touches for an exceptional playing experience. Crafted in the USA, this acoustic-electric guitar boasts Taylor's groundbreaking V-Class bracing to boost volume, sustain and intonation accuracy. The solid tropical mahogany top and urban ash back and sides create a tonally versatile voice. Plugged in, Taylor's revolutionary Expression System 2 pickup authentically conveys your 324ce's natural acoustic tone. With a silent satin finish, tobacco sunburst look and ergonomic contours, the 324ce is a modern masterpiece.

With Revolutionary V-Class Bracing for Enhanced Volume and Intonation

Taylor's patented V-Class bracing represents a major advancement in acoustic guitar design. This innovative bracing pattern optimizes your 324ce's response and musicality. Notes ring out with impressive volume and clarity across the entire tonal range. Sustain is heightened for more resonance and expression. V-Class bracing also brings the 324ce's intonation into greater alignment up and down the neck. Chords sound fuller and more harmonious. Tuning stability improves too, thanks to the guitar's optimized string vibration.

With a Mahogany and Urban Ash Body for Versatile Acoustic Tone

The 324ce pairs a solid tropical mahogany top with back and sides of urban ash sourced from trees grown in Southern California. This premium wood combo yields a focused yet versatile acoustic voice that readily responds to both gentle and aggressive playing styles. The mahogany top provides organic compression to smooth out your tone. The urban ash contributes articulate note separation and ample projection. Together they create a dynamic tonal palette equally suited to fingerstyle nuance and energetic strumming.

With Taylor's ES2 Pickup System for Lifelike Amplified Sound

Plug in the 324ce and Taylor's revolutionary Expression System 2 pickup authentically conveys your guitar's natural acoustic tone. This groundbreaking design places three adjustable sensors along the saddle. As a result, the ES2 captures a broader dynamic range versus under-saddle pickups. The location also allows the saddle to fully contact the bridge for optimal acoustic resonance when unplugged. Paired with Taylor's studio-grade preamp, the ES2 pickup translates all the richness of your playing through an amplifier or PA.

With Premium Touches for Optimal Playability and Aesthetics

The Builder's Edition 324ce incorporates ergonomic refinements to maximize playing comfort. Thoughtfully beveled armrest and body edges enable smooth strumming access. The contoured neck heel eases upper-fret access. Gotoh tuners provide precise tuning control. Visually, the 324ce makes a statement with its shaded edgeburst finish, ivoroid binding and ebony appointments. The Silent Satin finish allows the mahogany and ash to resonate freely. Protect your investment with the included deluxe Taylor hardshell case.
