You are looking at a Taylor K24ce Koa Grand Auditorium Acoustic-Electric Guitar, serial number 1103293115. This is the actual guitar you will receive should you decide to purchase.

The Taylor K24ce Koa Grand Auditorium Acoustic-Electric Guitar is a member of the Koa Series of acoustic guitars. This series offers a variety of body sizes, all with Koa back and sides, and a choice of Sitka spruce or Hawaiian Koa for the top. Each guitar presents an exotic feast of figure, color and sound. Koa’s visual allure is complemented by a the maple edge trim and the indian rosewood body, fingerboard, soundhole, and heel cap binding. This Koa Series K24ce Acoustic-Electric is performance-ready, with a smooth Venetian cutaway and Taylor’s top-of-the-line Expression System electronics.

The top, back and sides of the K24ce Grand Auditorium are crafted from visually and tonally beautiful Hawaiian koa. The Grand Auditorium body shares the same length, width and depth as the dreadnought body, but has a smaller waist. These refined proportions combined with this stunning tropical hardwood gives the K24ce GA it's unique acoustic voice that warms up over time while making it the most musically versatile of all the Taylor shapes, perfect for any style you throw at it—from a nice mellow finger style to you medium-strength strumming and picking.

The soundboard of the K24ce top is supported by Taylor's CV bracing with patented relief rout. Typically, due to the slight differences in the contouring in the scalloping, guitars that employ the CV bracing will have better projection and a thick, rich sound without sacrificing articulation. Taylor's relief rout is a technique used to enhance the tone of the guitar by carving a groove along the inside edges of the top to loosen them up. This will provide the top with a little more give, which allows the top to vibrate more freely without giving up its structural integrity, thus resulting in enhanced bass response, increased volume and well-balanced tonality.

The K24ce comes fully equipped with the high-quality Taylor Expression System (ES). The ES pairs a top quality pickup system with a professional grade preamp and employs revolutionary Dynamic sensing technology, allowing  the natural acoustic sound of the K24ce to be faithfully amplified, just as it should be. Because top vibration has a huge impact on the sound of an acoustic guitar, the proprietary Dynamic Body Sensor captures those soundboard vibrations by strategically placing a network of surface-sensing, magnetic microphones under the guitar top while the patented Dynamic String Sensor is mounted underneath the fingerboard to measure the vibrations of the strings and then turn them into an electronic signal... the result—a beautiful, organic acoustic sound when plugging the K24ce into an any amplifier or direct box via standard 1/4” instrument cable or for an even greater signal level (with no loss of frequencies, even with long cables) plug directly into recording interface or mixing console via balanced line level input (TRS to XLR cable required, no Direct Box required for this application). The ES also features simplistic volume, bass and treble controls for precise tonal shaping while the unobtrusive design doesn't take away from the guitar's aesthetics.

Other elegant appointments featured on this Taylor K24ce Grand Auditorium Acoustic-Electric Guitar include gorgeous Island Vine headstock and fingerboard inlays, a rosewood/maple/rosewood rosette and gold Taylor tuning machines—all with the full protection of a Taylor hardshell case.
