The 524ce is Taylor’s all-mahogany Grand Auditorium that blends their most versatile body style with the fundamental focus of mahogany, especially with the mahogany top. From fingerpicking to medium strumming, your acoustic tone will be clear and direct, and amplifies wonderfully with Taylor’s Expression System 2 pickup. Appointments include a black pickguard, grained ivoroid binding and rosette, and a grained ivoroid Century fretboard inlay.
Expression System 2 (ES2)
The Taylor ES2 is a revolutionary pickup design that delivers the latest in Taylor’s ongoing innovation in acoustic guitar amplification. The heart of the Expression System 2 is Taylor’s proprietary behind-the-saddle pickup, which features three uniquely positioned and individually calibrated pickup sensors. The location of the sensors enables a more dynamic range of acoustic sound to be captured than ever before.
Together with Taylor’s custom-designed ‘professional audio’-grade preamp, this system produces exceptional amplified tone and responsiveness. On stage through a PA, plugged into your favorite acoustic amplifier, or direct into recording software, the Expression System 2 faithfully conveys the voice of your Taylor guitar.
