The 324ce boasts unique visual appeal thanks to its mahogany top, and sonic magic under the hood as well. Taylor's groundbreaking V-Class bracing enhances the volume, sustain and projection, bringing out even more of the natural midrange focus of its Tasmanian blackwood back and sides. While the natural compression of the hardwood mahogany top tends to even out the response across the tonal spectrum, the V-Class design boosts the dynamic range, especially in the upper register, and the in-tuneness of the notes everywhere along the fretboard is wonderfully consistent. All of these nuances add up to a versatile choice for gigging, practicing or recording across multiple playing styles. The dusky hues of the mahogany top project a rootsy vibe, accented by a shaded edgeburst, black binding, a matching pickguard, and muted satin-finish sheen. The guitar ships with ES2 electronics in a deluxe hardshell case.

Features

  • Grand Auditorium - Taylor's signature shape embodies the ultimate all-purpose acoustic.

  • Tropical Mahogany top wood produces strong fundamentals with clarity and focus.

  • Tasmanian Blackwood body yields strong volume, with a focused midrange and rich top-end shimmer.

  • The Expression System 2 captures more of a guitars dynamic properties using a breakthrough behind-the-saddle design.

  • The Venetian cutaway is known for its soft, round lines. The sloping peak of the cutaway will vary depending on the shape of the guitar.

  • V-Class bracing is a revolutionary design that balances the flexibility and stability of the top and produces unmatched sustain, volume, and intonation.

Bought this guitar in June 2020. I absolutely love playing this instrument. It’s near always in tune and the sound is amazing. I tried out many guitars at L&M but when I tried this one, it simply blew me away. Thanks Taylor this is a family heirloom. Jean

I love the warm tone and even warmer looks of this guitar! This thing is absolutely beautiful and plays as well as it looks. I couldn't be happier with this purchase, a once-in-a-lifetime guitar for me. Koodos to Geoff at L&M St. John's for helping me get through this Covid disaster :-)

I do love this instrument and the sound is excellent; the tones are nicely balanced and it’s extremely comfortable to play. Tunes up nicely and stays in tune forever. I do wish it came with Taylor sense. I find you have to adjust the action a lot more with this guitar under Ottawa winters however compared to my previous Taylor 114ce. But not a big deal. The tone are more balanced to the mids and highs one of my favorite guitars play so far.
