Full DescriptionView Full Description
The most versatile and popular of Taylor's guitar shapes. The Grand Auditorium body provides well-defined midranges with a clear and balanced tone. It's responsive enough for fingerstyle players and powerful enough for both pickers and strummers to produce a lively response.
The Mahogany top wood features a stiffness that initially translates into a bright tone, but the more a Mahogany-top guitar is played, the more it develops overtones that contribute to a fuller and richer sound.
The body of this acoustic guitar is made from high-quality Sapele, an alternative tonewood that Taylor began using over a decade ago. Sometimes mistakenly referred to as African Mahogany due to the close resemblance, Sapele is highly sustainable and tonally it delivers similarly to Mahogany, with a little added treble and a balanced tone that is perfect for a range of playing applications.
Expression System 2
The Taylor Expression System 2 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.
Unique Bracing Pattern
A significant factor behind the incredible sound of the 324e is the forward shifted bracing pattern with a relief rout. The 'x' in the bracing pattern is moved closer to the soundhole, enabling more of the guitar top to vibrate, delivering maximum tonal quality and projection.
