Taylor 224-K DLX Koa

Lustrous Koa Provides Balanced Tone and Sparkle

The solid Hawaiian koa top of the Taylor 224ce-K DLX organically compresses its sound, reproduces precise fundamentals like those typically heard in mahogany, and adds more shimmer in the highs and fullness in the lows to balance the instrument's voice. Combining transient snap and forward mids, the layered koa back and sides complement the top beautifully, creating warm, natural, exuberant acoustic tone, representing koa's signature midrange, low-end warmth and top-end sparkle. And like a fine wine, the 224ce-K DLX's koa body will mature over time, becoming even richer and sweeter.

Taylor 224-K DLX Venetian Cutaway

Fast-Playing Neck and Deep Body Cutaway

The 224ce-K DLX's comfortable solid sapele neck allows for smooth, fast playing across the genuine West African ebony fretboard. Its slim carve lends exceptional ease to fretting, and the satin finish allows your hand to glide freely up and down the neck. A Venetian body cutaway provides you access to the highest registers, making it simple to solo beyond the 12th fret. Whether you're playing chords, single-note melodies or lightning-fast licks, the Taylor 224ce-K DLX's ergonomic neck and body design accommodate your every move.

Taylor 224-K DLX Venetian Electronics

Onboard Expression System 2 Electronics 

Plug in the 224ce-K DLX, and the Taylor Expression System 2 (ES2) electronics accurately convey your unamplified tone. The ES2 utilizes three unobtrusive behind-the-saddle sensors to capture the guitar's dynamic range and nuances. Advanced filtering ensures each note rings true, without quack, boxiness or hum. The onboard preamp has easy-to-use tone controls for dialing in your perfect amplified sound. From the studio to the stage, the 224ce-K DLX is ready to shine through any mix.

Taylor 224-K DLX Hardshell Case

Elegant Looks and a Deluxe Hardshell Case

Visually, the 224ce-K DLX makes a striking impression. The glossy shaded edgeburst finish accentuates the naturally compelling coloration of Hawaiian koa. Elegant appointments like gold die-cast tuning machines, single-ring pearloid rosette and small diamond inlays complete the upscale look. Plus, the included deluxe hardshell case securely protects your investment, while making transport stress-free.

For exceptional playability, resonant tone and elegant aesthetics, look no further than the Taylor 224ce-K DLX. If you appreciate Hawaiian koa's beauty and musicality, you will love this top-notch acoustic-electric.
