Builder's Edition K24ce

The latest koa entry in the Builder's Edition family is this Grand Auditorium K24ce, built with all-solid Hawaiian koa with V-Class bracing under the hood. Sonically, it bears the hallmarks of koa's unique tone, with high-end clarity balanced against the volume and sustain improvements delivered by the new bracing scheme. Koa's inimitable aging properties also make this guitar a special find, opening and adding depth and sweetness as the guitar is played over time. Designed to optimize the player's experience with a handful of ergonomic features, this model includes a double-contoured cutaway for easy playing all the way down to the highest frets, along with a smooth armrest that takes the pressure off the player's strumming arm. The Silent Satin finish treatment adds a subtle visual touch while removing much of the incidental noise that comes from the player's arm movement, making this an ideal choice for session or studio players looking to lay down tracks. It ships with ES2 electronics in a deluxe hardshell case.

Features
Grand Auditorium - 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 - The Expression System® 2 captures more of a guitar's dynamic properties using a breakthrough behind-the-saddle design.
Beveled Cutaway - A smooth, double-contoured cutaway provides easy access to even the highest frets without changing hand positions.
V-Class Bracing - A revolutionary design that balances the flexibility and stability of the top, V-Class bracing produces unmatched sustain, volume, and intonation.

This guitar is just getting better. It's starting to open up since I acquired it, almost a year now. I gave it 4.5 because it's still a bit confusing when it comes to the fretboard without the usual markers but hey I'll figure it out. Also, with the satin finish there is shiny spot (yeah, I did that...) where the pickguard usually is. Aside from that a beautiful tone springs from this fine crafted instrument and sometimes I even feel my insides vibrating...yup, it's in tune!

The Taylor K24ce builders edition is in a class all by itself. A brilliant tone coupled with an incredibly stunning build and quality that is off the charts. I love this instrument.

Finalement, je fais partie de la famille Taylor. Bien que dispendieuse, cette guitare rencontre toutes mes attentes. Finition impeccable, confort inégalé, clefs dotées d'une précision chirurgicale,look à faire pâlir d'envie Venus elle-même, manche d'une efficacité redoutable, système es-2 performant... Wow!!! Certains pourraient dire que je manque d'impartialité, mais sachez que j'ai essayé des Martin, des Boucher, des Guild et la Taylor revenait toujours me titiller. Le son est égal, avec un beau punch équilibré. Le sustain est impressionnant. Quand je joue un accord, chaque corde est bien définie dans le mix harmonique. Le koa coupe un peu les aiguës que je trouve parfois indésirables et le niveau de compression qu'offre cette essence de bois est très intéressant. Cette guitare projette le son de façon remarquable. L'accès aux notes dans le haut du manche est d'une facilité déconcertante !!! Finalement, c'est vrai que cette guitare n'est pas donnée, mais la qualité a un prix et en aucun cas je ne regrette cet investissement. Bravo Taylor!

What a stunning guitar! The tone is balanced and warm. Hawaiian Koa is extremely gorgeous. After I owned this guitar, I have become a big fan of Taylor and Andy Powers since it is obviously to find the passion and effort of Andy Powers from this Builder’s edition art.

Performance Warranty Banner

Protect your investment with the Long & McQuade Performance Warranty

A warranty can be a very important factor when making a buying decision. Because repairs can be very expensive in terms of parts and labour costs, manufacturers usually only provide one year limited warranties that generally only cover items that malfunction due to a manufacturer’s defect. With an important purchase such as a musical
instrument or piece of studio gear, however, many people want to have the peace of mind in knowing that their investment will be protected should the product no longer be performing at 100%.

Because of this, Long & McQuade provides our customers with a FREE one-year Performance Warranty on most of our products. The Long & McQuade Performance Warranty supplements the manufacturer’s warranty to ensure that our customers receive complete “no hassle” warranty coverage within their first year.

How does the Long & McQuade Performance Warranty differ from most manufacturers' warranties?
  • Performance Guarantee: Normal wear and tear is covered, so your product will be performing as well as the day you purchased it for the entire duration of the coverage. Band and Orchestral Performance Warranty does not include replacing pads or cleaning for woodwind instruments, unless deemed necessary by our repair staff. Ultrasonic cleaning for brass instruments will be provided if deemed necessary by our repair staff, but is not routinely offered under the Performance Warranty.
  • Product Replacement: If your product cannot be fixed or costs too much to fix, we will replace it with the equivalent model for no additional charge. If this is not possible, a full refund will be provided.
  • No Lemon Policy: Your product will be replaced should the same problem occur multiple times.
  • Convenient: Easy drop off and pick up of the product at any Long & McQuade location.
  • Guitar Setup: Guitars purchased at Long & McQuade come with 1 free setup, to be redeemed within 1 year for new guitars and 90 days for used guitars.
  • Loaners Available: A loaner product may be given while the product is being repaired.
  • Power Surge Protection: Your product is covered even if damaged from a power surge.
  • Accessory Coverage: Any peripheral devices or accessories that come with your product (i.e. foot pedal, case) are also covered.
  • Commercial Use Coverage: Music and recording professionals who purchase gear for “heavy-use” commercial purposes will still be covered.
 

Long & McQuade reserves the right to restrict the purchase of additional years of Performance Warranty. Used products come with a 3-month Long & McQuade Performance Warranty. Some products (i.e. computers, software, cymbals and other items) are covered only by the manufacturer‘s warranty. Consumables (i.e. strings, reeds, drum sticks, batteries, tubes, cross faders) are excluded as they are designed to be replaced. Cosmetic Damage, Accidental Damage, or problems caused by Humidity or Temperature Issues are not covered. Speakers damaged by overpowering are generally not covered. Our coverage does not provide compensation for loss of use. As of June 2018 the Performance Warranty is no longer transferable. The warranty is only valid in Canada.

Purchasing additional years of coverage

Some manufacturers provide warranties for longer than 1 year; however, these are usually limited warranties that do not provide the same coverage as the Long & McQuade Performance Warranty. Customers interested in more complete and convenient (but not necessarily longer) coverage are still able to purchase additional years of the Performance Warranty.

If you are interested in receiving this coverage for longer than one year, you have the option of purchasing additional years of the Performance Warranty. The pricing is as follows:

  • NEW products: 4% of the current new selling price to double the warranty from 1 year to 2 years. 4% for each additional year.
  • USED products: 4% of the current new selling price to increase the warranty from 3 months to 1 year. 4% for each additional year.
  • GUITARS: 4% of the current new selling price to double the warranty from 1 year to 2 years. 4% for each additional year. $45 maximum. An additional free setup is not included with additional purchased years of Performance Warranty.
  • BAND and ORCHESTRAL instruments: 4% of the current new selling price to double the warranty from 1 year to 2 years. 4% for each additional year.
