Part of Taylor's 300 Series Special Edition models, the 324ce SEB features a shaded edgeburst mahogany top which evokes a rich vintage aesthetic on this cutaway Grand Auditorium. Paired with African sapele back and sides, the voice yields clear, punchy midrange character that behaves well in a mix with other instruments and delivers the kind of musical versatility that makes this a reliable guitar in a variety of playing scenarios. A black pickguard and traditional appointments add to the old school feel vibe. For the modern performer, the 324ce SEB comes with the Taylor Expression System 2 pickup system.
With a slightly larger footprint than the Grand Auditorium, the GS yields a slightly more potent and dynamic all-around sound. Players can expect deeper bass, thicker trebles, and increased volume and low-end sustain, all without disrupting the tonal balance and clarity of the guitar. The Veneitan cutaway gives you more access for the entire fret when you're getting down and dirty on those solos.
As a top wood, mahogany produces a natural compression, so it wont yield as quick a response as a spruce-top guitar will. A mahogany-top guitar will produce strong fundamentals, with clear and direct focus. It might be characterized as having a woody, dry tone.
Sapeles tonal output is consistent and balanced across the tonal spectrum, making it compatible with a diverse range of playing styles. Its comparable to mahogany, but its higher density tends to produce a slightly brighter sound with more top-end shimmer.
Expression System 2
Taylors breakthrough acoustic pickup marks a major advance in piezo technology thanks to a patented behind-the-saddle design. The unique placement of three piezo sensors captures a more dynamic range of acoustic sound and responds well in a variety of settings.
