The All-New 700 Series Koa | Taylor Guitars


collapse expand iconDescription

The Taylor 724ce Koa Grand Auditorium acoustic-electric guitar highlights the natural look, feel and sound of the wood, in a popular body shape that responds well to a variety of play styles. The select-grade Hawaiian koa features rich color variegation and straight grain structure for stunning aesthetics. Enjoy optimized response with Taylor’s innovative V-Class bracing system, which boosts volume and sustain, creates purer and more orderly notes, is easier to tune and has more solid pitch. The ultrathin matte finish helps coax a livelier, punchier response, as well as produces a warm and inviting tactile sensation.

The 724ce’s Grand Auditorium construction produces a versatile instrument that yields ample volume in response to light fingerpicking, and reacts to medium strumming and flatpicking with a clear, balanced sound across the tonal spectrum. Get additional amplification with the Taylor Expression System 2 (ES2) electronics—a patented behind-the-saddle pickup with three uniquely positioned and individually calibrated sensors, ensuring that all the nuance of your tone comes through clearly. Together with the custom-designed preamp, the system produces exceptional amplified tone and responsiveness. It operates through a proprietary 9-volt battery compartment and easy-to-use volume, and active bass and treble controls. Additional appointments to the 724ce include mother-of-pearl fountain inlays, rosewood binding, a dark-stained maple pickguard and Taylor polished bronze tuners.

The 724ce Grand Auditorium comes with a Taylor deluxe hardshell case.
