A true gent, the Taylor K24ce Electro Acoustic Guitar marries together handsome aesthetics and a beautiful voice, to create an instrument of unignorable subtlety. Taylor’s most popular body shape, Grand Auditorium, has been chosen for the body of the Taylor K24ce Electro Acoustic Guitar, because of its versatility of tone, especially in the midrange, and note definition, which make it equally capable for both flatpicking and strumming styles. Also making up the Taylor K24ce’s silhouette is a Venetian cutaway. This addition gives unrestricted access to the upper frets and adds to the beauty of the instrument, with its soft, round curves.
Also of note in the construction of the Taylor K24ce Electro Acoustic Guitar is the bracing used for its top: CV with Relief Rout. Along with other refinements, this bracing loosens the edges of the top, whilst retaining structural integrity, to increase flexibility and give a fuller, fatter sound without affecting articulation.
The body of the Taylor K24ce Electro Acoustic Guitar is unmistakably Hawaiian Koa in its construction. This beautiful wood is more than just a pretty face, however. Tonally it sits nicely between mahogany and maple, with mahogany’s midrange and maple’s top end. It is one of those woods that likes to played and rewards its owner over time; starting out bright and focussed, but developing a wider midrange and a richer, sweeter, more resonant tone.
Joined to the body of the Taylor K24ce Electro Acoustic Guitar is a mahogany neck, topped by an ebony fingerboard with the gorgeous Island Vine inlay spanning its length, which also appears on the headstock. Like the body, this has an Indian rosewood binding that splits up the design nicely.
Although an excellent acoustic guitar, the Taylor K24ce Electro Acoustic Guitar also gives you the option of plugging into an amplifier or PA system. Ensuring that none of the guitar’s character is lost when travelling from guitar to speaker, Taylor have developed their own pickup system, now in its second version, the Taylor Expression System 2.
Through their research Taylor found that the best place for a pickup is behind, rather than under the saddle, and this is where you will find the pickup on the Taylor K24ce Electro Acoustic Guitar. Made up of three strategically placed sensors installed through the bridge, the Taylor Expression System 2 gets the best from the guitar. It also gives you a set of three discreet controls knobs at the upper bout, for quick and easy tone shaping. These controls are: volume, treble, and bass.
