The Taylor 224ce-K DLX allows players to enjoy the sonic and visual splendor of Koa at an attainable price point. Completely crafted from Koa, featuring superb playability and tremendous ES2 Electronics, the 224ce-K DLX is great for acoustic lovers who want the beauty of an all Koa guitar at an attainable price.Completely Crafted from KoaThe 224ce-K sports a Grand Auditorium body, one of Taylor's most popular designs. The comfortably sized cutaway body is carved entirely from Koa, a rare Hawaiian wood with a wonderfully natural aesthetic. Hailing from the Big Island of Hawaii, the hardtop Koa wood affords compression, creating a controlled, sustaining effect to each note. It begins with a very bright tone, but over time relents to a warmer, sweeter sound, particularly in the mid-range. The Grand Auditorium, all-Koa design is well suited to fingerstyle players who have a heavier touch.Superb PlayabilityLike all Taylor's, the 224ce-K DLX has a ton of great features that make it a highly playable guitar. Sure, it's pretty enough to be decoration, but that's not what it's made for. In addition to the highly playable Grand Auditorium cutaway body, the 224ce-K DLX has a sapele neck measuring a comfortable 1-11/16 wide. It's capped with a 20-fret West African ebony fretboard. This guitar comes standard with Elixir Phosphor Bronze Light strings and sports a Nubone nut as well as Micarta saddle. All of these features help to give you the comfort and sound to play at the peak of your ability. Tremendous ES2 ElectronicsTaylor's incredible electronics system gives its acoustic designs a bigger, more powerful voice. Amplifying all the beautiful Taylor tone, the Expression System 2 pickup is placed behind the saddle and features three highly attuned sensors. Its placement and quality design allows it to embrace more sound than ever before. Coupled with a preamp with volume and tone controls, the ES2 system allows you to achieve awesome audio, no matt.
