Taylor's 524CE is an all-mahogany cutaway Grand Auditorium guitar. Mahogany typically delivers a focused sound with a full midrange, and a hardwood top like mahogany adds a natural compression to the response, helping to create a balanced articulation across the tonal spectrum, which benefits lively strummers.  Additonal appointments include grained ivoroid Century fretboard inlays with a new peghead inlay, faux tortoise shell binding, and a faux tortoise/ivoroid rosette. 

Comes in a deluxe hardshell case.

• Grand Auditorium Shape - Taylor’s signature shape embodies the ultimate all-purpose acoustic.
• Tropical Mahogany Top Woods - The hardwood top produces strong fundamentals with clarity and focus.
• Tropical Mahogany Body Woods - A midrange powerhouse. Mahogany is prized for balance and articulation, making it one of the best all-around tonewoods there is.
• The Expression System 2 captures more of a guitar’s dynamic properties using a breakthrough behind-the-saddle design.
• Venetian Cutaway - The Venetian cutaway is known for its soft, round lines. The sloping peak of the cutaway will vary depending on the shape of the guitar.
• V-Class Bracing- A revolutionary design that balances the flexibility and stability of the top, V-Class bracing produces unmatched sustain, volume, and intonation.
