Fast sound development without much effort

With the Taylor 224ce-K DLX Lefthand acoustic guitar, the Californian manufacturer Taylor expands its range with a deluxe version of the popular 200 series, which is supplied with a noble high-gloss finish and a Taylor deluxe hardshell case. The construction of the body allows the guitar to produce a distinctly balanced sound, which is particularly pronounced in the treble and bass frequencies thanks to a solid top and laminated body. Thanks to a lightweight construction, the guitar responds very directly and allows a quick sound development without much effort, making the guitar in grand auditorium design very versatile. A flat neck with a narrow fretboard combined with a scale length of 648 mm, a nut width of 42.9 mm and a generous cutaway allows perfect access to all 20 frets. At the same time, the smooth-running tuners allow for very precise tuning of the 6 steel strings. In addition, the instrument is equipped with an in-house pickup system, which also amplifies the acoustic sound of the guitar in a decidedly natural way.

Construction and woods

In order to produce the most balanced sound possible, the top is made of solid koa and equipped with X-bracing. This allows an amazingly powerful and defined sound to be extracted from the instrument even with a light touch of the strings. The laminated koa body complements all frequencies with a pleasant warmth, making the instrument excellent for expressive strumming and fine Pickings. At the same time, the flat mahogany neck offers excellent playability on the entire ebony fretboard. Matching the fretboard, the Overlay headstock and bridge are also made of ebony.

Hardware and design

To ensure that the strings can be tuned precisely and quickly, gold-plated die-cast tuners are inserted into the characteristic headstock. Meanwhile, the compensated saddle made of Micarta and the narrow nut made of GraphTech Nubone ensure optimal intonation in all positions. The fretboard features finely detailed small-diamond inlays for orientation, adding a sophisticated touch to the instrument alongside the single-ring soundhole rosette, subtle black binding and large-scale black pickguard.


For use on stage or in the rehearsal room, Taylor 's own Expression System 2 is built into the body, which transmits the acoustic sound unaltered and directly to the amplifier. Three piezo elements in the bridge transmit the sound of each pair of strings to the side preamp, through which you can individually adjust the output signal. With the help of the controls, the treble, as well as the bass frequencies and the volume can be conveniently adjusted. The active system is powered by a 9V battery, which is stored in a separate slot next to the jack.

Taylor - The epitome of fine quality

As one of the largest guitar manufacturers, Taylor is truly an authority in the production of first-class instruments. Thus, professional manufacturing by skilled crafts men results in the very finest products for life, whose value is always maintained - or even increased! This is due in equal part to exquisite tonewoods, which do not warp due to long storage and selected quality and as a result can hardly be surpassed in terms of high quality. Only spruce, mahogany, cedar or Koa of proven quality are used for the tops. By the way, careful production in combination with the best materials does not only apply to guitars. Guitar bags and all accessories are also of first-class quality. Finally, a conscientious final inspection does not let even the smallest defects pass and ensures absolutely flawless guitars even before shipment.

And that's not all: Taylor also attaches great importance to environmentally conscious actions.

Ebony & Koa: Sustainability at Taylor Guitars.

Uncontrolled clearing of forests and overexploitation lead to massively endangered wood species that are no longer able to regenerate due to the high pace of deforestation. These include ebony and koa in particular, whose dwindling stocks and the resulting ecological problems have prompted a rethink at Taylor Guitars.

Taylor Sustainability

Sustainable ebony cultivation in Cameroon

Because ebony 's hard, supple texture makes it particularly finger-friendly, it has long been the preferred choice for making fingerboards. Its attractive appearance is also extremely popular for bridges, headstock rests, bridge Pins and Bindings. However, high demand and a thriving black market outstripped stocks, landing Ebony on the Red List of Endangered Species in 1994. Moreover, only the deep black heartwood, which makes up only a fraction of the tree, was used, resulting in a disproportionately large amount of waste in production. In order to protect the forests, Taylor has thus been working since 2011 with the Crelicam Wood Mill in Yaoundé in Cameroon to promote controlled consumption by processing waste products.

"We need to use the ebony that the forest gives us" - Bob Taylor

Siglo Tonewoods Project

Koa acacia populations have also suffered severe losses over the last 20 years. Unsustainable forestry as well as overexploitation led to a decline that can only be stopped by proactive action and reforestation. Therefore, Taylor Guitars together with Pacific Rim Tonewoods founded the Siglo Tonewoods project, which aims to rebuild the Hawaiian virgin forest. This is a large cultivation area for koa acacia and other species, which allows the use of koa wood on a controlled scale.
