The NS24ce Nylon-String Grand Auditorium Acoustic-Electric Guitar represents a nylon-string with a bit of twist. Think of it as classical tone meets Taylor playability, beginning with a slim and fast 1 7/8" neck. This rosewood laminate grand auditorium blends nylon's tonal nuances with Taylor playability and features a cutaway and ES-T under-saddle pickup, all at an enticing price point.
The grand auditorium is Taylor's most versatile and popular shape, excelling at both light-touch fingerstyle to full-blown strumming. Great for miking and recording, The grand auditorium's balanced mid-range and bright tone exemplify the Taylor voice. The Venetian cutaway of the N24ce offers maximum playability.
Taylor's ES-N piezo system offers high-fidelity amplified tone, unprecedented dynamic range, and extraordinary resistance to feedback and distortion. It enables all of the expressive subtleties of your playing to come through, just the way you intended.
Taylor's ultraviolet-cured finish provides the striking appearance, smooth feel, and lasting protection you'd expect to find on their guitars. Unlike lacquer finishes, Taylor's UV finish is resistant to cold-checking and is much more environmentally friendly. It's also clearer than lacquer and doesn't turn yellow, so wood grain and natural colorations are more distinct. It contains as many "solids" as thicker finishes, so a thinner application provides the same protection while still allowing the tonewood to breath. Plus, it ages the same way that we like a good lacquer finish to age, allowing the guitar to "open up" as it's played over the years.

This is my first Taylor, that said I can only compare it to my Fender and Gibson. To be perfectly honest, I only took the Taylor NS34ce for a spin at my local GC because I think that Jason Mraz has a great sound and I'm hoping to reproduce it somewhat in my own music. That also said, I LOVE IT. I purchased the NS24ce with high hopes. The Tayor product meets all the hype and now I know why so many professional players prefer it. It has a solid Smokey sound with a really great default action setting. I haven't had to adjust it. It came with Elixir high tension strings that sound great. I don't know that much about nylon strings, so I could be missing out on some better sounding chord progressions. I'd welcome some input on that. The electronics are pretty basic with just a volume, bass and treble. However, it produces a constant and consistent tone at any volume. Great for live performances, you can literally plug into anything and control your volume from your guitar without losing tone. To sum up. I think I have become a Taylor kinda guy.
