Designed by master guitar builder Andy Powers, the 724ce Koa features a redesigned aesthetic and an architecture that is more reflective of the player and captures more nuance in tone and feel. Taylor has utilized Koa to perfection for decades and this beautifully crafted Grand Auditorium is just another example of their commitment to excellence!
The guitar sounds more unfiltered, raw, and captures the individual players sound. The finish is an ultra-thin, open pore matte finish that allows the guitar to breathe and respond in a more lively fashion, while striking the right balance of harmonic musical vibration, without excessive distortion. With subtle changes in design architecture combined with the award winning V-Class bracing system, you get a super versatile guitar with incredible dynamic range, amazing sustain and intonation, and the sparkle that Koa brings to the party.
The Grand Auditorium body shape is Taylor’s most versatile body shape, perfect for fingerstyle to light to moderate strumming. Also an exceptional choice for stage, recording, or anyone looking for a guitar that can handle a variety of applications. The 724ce features rosewood binding, paua and rosewood single ring bound rosette, polished bronze tuners, maple/black/rosewood top edge treatment, and a dark stained maple pickguard. The 724ce comes equipped with Taylor’s award winning ES2 active electronics and ships in a deluxe hardshell case.
