Taylor’s Captivating Koa Creation
Taylor’s acclaimed 700 series combines exceptional USA build quality with an artisan touch of exceptional craftsmanship. The 724ce is versatile modern workhorse with looks worth showing off as a display piece. Full koa top, back, and sides deliver balanced frequency that’s paired perfectly with a Grand Auditorium acoustic body shape. One of Taylor’s flagship designs, the Grand Auditorium is a balanced and tapered body with enough clarity for fingerpicking yet ample body for strumming chords. Plus, this fresh Taylor’s revolutionary V-Class bracing inside the guitar yields spot-on intonation, greater resonance, and longer sustain.
Balanced Grand Auditorium design
The Grand Auditorium player-friendly design is built for professionals who want to hop from style to style quickly without switching guitars! One of Taylor’s iconic guitar shapes, the Grand Auditorium’s comfortable low profile sonically outsized by its strong voice and projection. Since it’s balanced across lows, mids, and highs, players who favor transparent-sounding guitars will love the 724ce’s warm and crisp fingerpicking response that darkens up when flatpicking or strumming with force. What’s more, for better access to upper frets, the 724ce also features Taylor’s signature Venetian cutaway.
Curated koa and other tonewoods
The finest koa tonewood grows only on the Hawaiian Islands among the extremes of tropical weather and rugged volcanic mountainsides. In Hawaiian, koa means “bold,” which describes both its stunning wood grain and unique acoustic tone. The 724ce features a natural koa top, koa back and sides, and a mahogany neck with a matte finish and an ebony fingerboard accented with maple and rosewood purfling. It’s an incredibly articulate guitar with a trebly snap, haunting midrange, and warm low end. Plus, like any koa guitar, the 724ce’s low end warms and opens the more it’s played over time. The result is a guitar that matures and ages like a fine wine.
V-Class bracing: a sonic innovation
Bracing supports each and every acoustic guitar’s interior, and, though it’s almost invisible, bracing shapes guitar acoustics in a big way! X-shape bracing was standard on acoustics for over a century, but Taylor’s revolutionary V-bracing teases more volume and sustain out of a guitar’s sound chamber, even a slim-waisted guitar like the 724ce. V-bracing allows wooden acoustic tops to vibrate with more richness, projection, and sustain with more space inside the sound chamber for note maturation. This groundbreaking innovation also improves intonation and rounds out the hi-fi sound of top-of-the-line Taylor guitars like the 724ce.
Cutting-edge Taylor Expression System 2 electronics
Amplified players are going to love the Taylor Expression System 2 electronics built into the 724ce! The ES2 system features a revolutionary segmented pickup located behind the bridge saddle; this pickup position delivers remarkably accurate and clear sound production that’s authentic to your playing. Each ES2 system features a handy master volume knob for fast level adjustments, in addition to a 2-band EQ for independent treble/bass adjustments to get the sound you need. Plus, the ES2 system also has a built-in phase switch, which offers essential feedback suppression whenever the system is active.
