Taylor 324e Grand Auditorium Steel String Mahogany, 2015

Brand:

Instrument Categories: ,

Here we have a very good condition Taylor 324e, built during 2015 in El Cajon California and featuring Mahogany for the top, back and sides. with Ebony for the fingerboard and bridge.   Current versions of this model feature V-Class bracing and use Tasmanian Blackwood for the sides and back.   The Taylor Expression System 2 pickup and preamp system is factory installed on all these models. 

The Taylor 324e uses a non-cutaway version of the Grand Auditorium body design, Taylor’s most popular and versatile body shape, which according to Taylor delivers “a balanced blend of warmth, clarity and sustain with well-defined midrange.  This design responds well to many music styles”.    It’s also a “good fit for  novices and generalists who want a multipurpose guitar, recording and live performance.  Singer-songwriters and musicians fronting a band and almost anyone other than aggressive pickers or strummers will find this body design comfortable and effective. “

This Taylor 324e example dates to 26 March 2015 based on Taylor’s serial number decoder, and was built in El Cajon, California.  It is in very good clean condition with only minimal play wear.   

This guitar is now a few years old, and over time – but definitely not now in this case, the action here is great – most steel string guitars come to require a neck reset to address changing geometry and rising action heights.   For most builders using traditional dovetail neck joints, this is a very advanced repair that can take a week to complete and is hundreds of dollars.  Taylor, however, uses a proprietary neck joint that allows this work to be done in about an hour, start to finish.    While not a ‘sexy’ feature,  it’s an extremely important advantage to the Taylor line.  

The original Taylor hard shell case is included. 

Here’s the builder on the older version of the Taylor 324e Grand Auditorium guitar, seen here: 

“A rich-grained mahogany top, back and sides give Taylor’s medium-size Grand Auditorium body plenty of tonal and visual character. The clear, punchy midrange behaves well in a mix with other instruments, and delivers the kind of musical versatility that makes this a reliable guitar in different playing scenarios.

Neo-traditional appointments complement mahogany’s dark, vintage looks, including a shaded edgeburst top and all-satin finish. The guitar comes equipped with Expression System® 2 electronics for a dynamic amplified acoustic sound.”
