The Taylor 524CE Acoustic/Electric Guitar is an all-mahogany Grand Auditorium guitar which blends Taylors most versatile body style with the fundamental focus of mahogany especially with the mahogany top. The shape produced an original acoustic voice that was big enough to handle medium-strength picking and strumming yet with impressive balance across the tonal spectrum especially in the midrange producing clear well-defined notes that suited both strumming and fingerstyle playing. The GAs overall presence tracks well with other instruments both in a studio mix and on stage and singer-songwriters have embraced its utility both for composing and traveling with one guitar. Its also performance-ready with Taylors Expression System (ES) pickup. Appointments include a black pickguard ivoroid rosette and an ivoroid Century fretboard inlay.
