Taylor 700 Series Grand Auditorium Acoustic-Electric Guitar Featuring Solid Hawaiian Koa Top, Back and Sides, with Expression System 2 Electronics and Thin Natural Matte Finish

The 724ce launches a new era for the Taylor 700 Series, introducing Select-grade Hawaiian koa to this popular family of acoustic guitars. This Grand Auditorium boasts back, sides and top of solid Hawaiian koa selected for its visual beauty as well as its punchy, lively musical response. You’ll hear a bold attack with an energetic tone profile that yields crisp trebles, a rich midrange and a low end that grows in over time. The super-thin matte finish makes for a raw feel and aesthetic that’s complemented by mother-of-pearl Fountain inlays, rosewood binding, a paua shell rosette and a dark-stained maple pickguard. It includes the ES2 acoustic pickup and a deluxe hardshell guitar case for storage and protection.

  • Solid Hawaiian Koa top, back and sides
  • Wood and shell, Indian rosewood frame, and paua field rosette
  • V-Class bracing
  • Tropical mahogany neck
  • West African crelicam ebony fretboard
  • Expression System 2 electronics
  • Deluxe hard case
 

Grand Auditorium body

The mid-size Grand Auditorium bears refined proportions that falls between a Dreadnought and Grand Concert. The GA’s overall presence tracks well with other instruments both in a studio mix and on stage, and singer-songwriters have embraced its utility both for composing and traveling with one guitar.

Hawaiian koa top, back and sides

As a hardwood, a koa top will initially project a bright and focused tone, especially together with koa back and sides. Playing an all-koa guitar over time will allow the wood to mature, yielding an increasingly warm, rich, sweet sound with healthy overtone "bloom," especially in the midrange. The use of koa in the 700 series offers a bold, dynamic attack with a naturally woody character.

Expression System 2

The Taylor Expression System 2 is a revolutionary pickup design that delivers the latest in Taylor’s ongoing innovation in acoustic guitar amplification. The heart of the Expression System 2 is Taylor’s patented behind-the-saddle pickup, which features three uniquely positioned and individually calibrated pickup sensors. The location of the sensors enables a more dynamic range of acoustic sound to be captured than ever before. Together with Taylor’s custom-designed “professional audio”-grade preamp, this system produces exceptional amplified tone and responsiveness.

Venetian cutaway

A cutaway is the “scooped” indentation in a guitar’s upper, treble-side bout (near the neck), which allows access to the upper frets. Many electric players accustomed to having a cutaway gravitate toward the familiar feel of a cutaway acoustic guitar, especially if they play lead lines or chords in the upper register. The Venetian cutaway is known for its soft, round lines.

V-Class bracing

Taylor's patented V-Class bracing is a revolutionary new pattern — a new sonic engine — that marks a major shift away from traditional steel-string bracing patterns. By allowing the soundboard to flex naturally while maintaining rigidity along the center (in the direction of the strings), V-Class helps enhance the volume and sustain. It also creates a more orderly response from the soundboard.
