Grand Auditorium with Beveled Armrest and Cutaway, Chamfered Edges

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.

Beveled Cutaway
Our beveled cutaway design provides a more player-friendly feel for guitarists who utilize every inch of the fretboard. It features a compound design with a smoothened edge along the corner of the body between the end of the cutaway and the neck heel, providing a more comfortable feel for the fretting hand.
