Product Description

Producing a warm clear tone, the 524ce blends Taylor’s most versatile Grand Auditorium body style with the fundamental focus and meaty midrange of mahogany, emphasized further with the mahogany soundboard. Performance bracing uniquely optimizes the musical output of the body shape to produce more power and volume.

From fingerpicking to medium strumming, your acoustic tone will be clear and direct, and it amplifies wonderfully with Taylor’s Expression System 2 pickup. Among the aesthetic details that complement mahogany’s dark, rich-grained looks are a shaded edgeburst that wraps the entire guitar in neo-vintage warmth and a mix of faux tortoise shell and grained ivoroid trim.

Grand Auditorium Shape
The most versatile and popular of Taylor’s guitar shapes. Its well-defined midrange contributes to a clear and balanced tone. It’s responsive enough for fingerstyle players and powerful enough for pickers and strummers to get a lively response. Think of it as a jack of all trades.

Tropical Mahogany Top Wood
As a top wood, mahogany produces a natural compression, so it won’t yield as quick a response as a spruce-top guitar will. A mahogany-top guitar will produce strong fundamentals, with clear and direct focus. It might be characterized as having a woody, dry tone.

Tropical Mahogany Body Wood
Mahogany is known for its meaty midrange character, featuring a strong fundamental focus often described as “punchy,” “woody,” or “dry,” because it doesn’t produce a lot of ringing overtones. Mahogany’s earthy voice has been featured on many roots music recordings over the years.

Expression System 2 Electronics
Taylor’s breakthrough acoustic pickup marks a major advance in piezo technology thanks to a patented behind-the-saddle design. The unique placement of three piezo sensors captures a more dynamic range of acoustic sound and responds well in a variety of settings.

Venetian Cutaway
Standard on “ce” models in the 300 Series and up, 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. The Grand Concert, Grand Auditorium, and Grand Symphony have a steeper slope, while the Dreadnought is a bit flatter. Our Grand Concert nylon-string models also feature a subtle, flatter slope, while our 100 and 200 Series cutaway models incorporate our flattest slope.
