6-String | Tropical Mahogany Top | Urban Ash Back and Sides | Tropical Mahogany Neck | West African Crelicam Ebony Fretboard | Expression System® 2 Electronics | Beveled Cutaway | Taylor Deluxe Hardshell Brown Case
Crafted for the ultimate playing experience, the Builder's Edition 324ce combines signature Taylor playability and comfort with the rich tonal character of our responsibly sourced Urban Ash tonewood. Originating from Shamel ash trees in need of removal from cities and municipal areas, Urban Ash offers a response akin to high-grade mahogany: warm and woody with a strong focus on the fundamental note and minimal overtones. The solid mahogany top adds a bit of natural compression to help create remarkable tonal balance across the frequency spectrum. For comfort, this Grand Auditorium model sports a beveled armrest and cutaway, chamfered edges, and our Silent Satin finish to reduce incidental noise. It ships with a deluxe brown hardshell case. Other appointments include Compass inlays in faux pearl and Italian acrylic, Gotoh 510 tuners with a super-precise 21:1 gear ratio, a Silent Satin finish with a dark edgeburst treatment for an ultra-clean, noise-free sound, and ES2 electronics.
