Taylor’s 614ce maple/spruce Grand Auditorium has always been a versatile performer suited for fingerpicking and strumming, and this guitar boasts an array of tone-enhancing refinements that transform maple’s tone profile into a richer, warmer and more complex voice. The clear, punchy midrange behaves well in a mix with other instruments, and delivers the kind of musical versatility that defines Taylor 614ce Grand Auditorium in different playing scenarios. As a result, players can expect an even more dynamic and expressive musical tool. Sitka, as guitar top; generates a broad dynamic range and accommodates numerous playing styles allowing everything from aggressive strumming and flatpicking to fingerpicking. Maple as body woods; has long been associated with a bright acoustic sound, but Taylor’s 614ce maple guitars are voiced to bring out greater warmth, richness and sustain. This broadens maple’s tonal range from a single-dimension sound to a more musical, more versatile voice. Focused tone with a fast note decay that cuts through a mix is the key specialty of Maple wood.
Taylor 324ce is rigged with Expression System® 2 (ES2) which is a revolutionary pickup design that delivers the latest in Taylor’s ongoing innovation in acoustic guitar amplification. The heart of the Expression System 2 is Taylor’s patented behind-the-saddle pickup, which features three uniquely positioned and individually calibrated pickup sensors. The location of the sensors enables a more dynamic range of acoustic sound to be captured than ever before. Together with Taylor’s custom-designed “professional audio”-grade preamp, this system produces exceptional amplified tone and responsiveness. On stage through a PA, plugged into your favorite acoustic amplifier, or direct into recording software, the Expression System 2 faithfully conveys the voice of your Taylor guitar.
The ES2 features the volume and tone control knobs. The preamp is similar but with a slightly different gain structure. As a result it will be about 25 percent hotter, which is more in line with other pickups. This makes it plug-and-play friendly both for artists and live sound mixers.
Venetian Cutaway is standard on all ‘ce’ models. The Venetian cutaway is known for its soft, round lines. The sloping peak of the cutaway is steeped in 614ce when compared with a Dreadnought.
