Introducing Taylor's brand new innovation - the ground-breaking V-Class Bracing System. Andy Powers has re-imagined the Taylor Guitar, designing a new "sonic engine" which transforms the way the top vibrates to dramatically improve the sound. This new innovation marks a bold departure from X-bracing, producing notes that are louder, longer sustaining, and more in tune with each other. To find out more about V-Class Bracing, please follow this link to Taylor's website.
Among the first Taylor guitars to be created with V-Class bracing is the K24ce. This beautiful Grand Auditorium size guitar features all Hawaiian koa construction. Koa is a tonewood which yields a complex tone with sonic rewards which open up over time, as warm, sweet overtones gradually emerge. The guitar's body features a soft Venetian cutaway for easier access to the higher notes, as well as new maple binding and top trim, adding a creamy counterpoint against the shaded edgeburst finish that surrounds the entire guitar. The neck is made from mahogany with a West African ebony fingerboard, featuring new stunning Spring Vine inlay in maple. The guitar is equipped with Taylor's Expression System 2 electronics - their breakthrough behind-the-saddle transducer which amplifies the natural, unique tones of the guitar, not just the sound of a pickup. The K24ce also features Taylor Gold tuners, new black graphite nut, and a new sticker featuring the signature of master guitar designer Andy Powers.
