Beautifully finished to showcase the natural beauty of its Hawaiian koa back, sides and top, the Grand Auditorium 224ce-K DLX offers a high-end presentation to match a rich musical character. Paired with layered back and sides, the solid koa top serves up a vibrant response with a punchy midrange, also producing enough low-end presence to make this guitar sound incredibly balanced.
An upgraded set of aesthetic details elevates this model's visual appeal, with black binding and pickguard striking a contrast with a pearloid single-ring rosette and polished bronze tuners. It's all wrapped in a gleaming full-body gloss finish treated with a subtle shaded edgeburst that highlights koa's unique coloration. The 224ce-K DLX ships with built-in ES2 electronics and a deluxe brown Taylor hardshell guitar case.
Taylor’s signature shape embodies the ultimate all-purpose acoustic.
Hawaiian Koa Top
A koa top's visual beauty is instantly inspiring, while its sonic rewards unfold over time, as warm, sweet overtones gradually emerge.
Hawaiian Koa Body
Few woods carry the allure of Hawaiian koa, with its gorgeous figure and sweet, complex tone.
Expression System® 2 Electronics
The Expression System® 2 captures more of a guitar’s dynamic properties using a breakthrough behind-the-saddle design.

At Easy Music Center, we care for our instruments from the moment they arrive to when they ship to your door. All instruments are stored in a climate controlled environment and put through a 12-point inspection checklist before being shipped.
First, we check the finish of the instrument, carefully inspecting any blemishes on the surface. Next, we check the playability and setup by inspecting and adjusting the truss rod (if available), bridge, nut, and frets. If the instrument has electronics, we test all of the electronic components to make sure they are functioning properly. All instruments are set-up to factory specifications. Any requests made outside of those specifications can incur part and labor charges.
After a thorough inspection, we then move on to maintenance. We start by lubricating any moving parts on the instrument, such as tuning machines. We then move on to cleaning and oiling the fretboard along with the frets.
Once maintenance is done, we stretch and tune the strings and play test the instrument. After this, we do a final inspection and clean/detail the instrument before packing it up for shipment.
We’re excited to be a part of your instrument buying experience.
