Taylor 524ce LTD, Special Edition 2018, Walnut/Walnut
For 2018, Taylor has unveiled a limited run of special edition variations on their already renowned series. Riding among this wave in ingenuity, we're graced by the all-walnut masterpiece that is the Taylor 524ce LTD. Walnut, favored for its flawless blending of the tonal palette of both mahogany and maple, creates a sonic gradient of warm and breathy to shimmeringly bell-like, which results in a tonality that truly stands out against the grain of Taylor's line-up. These natural acoustic characteristics are only amplified when paired with Taylor's signature Performance Bracing, which boast an even greater balance of tone with an additional magnification of eminence. When applied to a stage application, one can rely on Taylor's esteemed ES2 electronics to take the timbre sculpting to an even further degree, at any volume. Ornamented with the eye-catching grain pattern indicative to walnut, which is only framed by a high-gloss finish, and topped-off with mother-of-pearl Century inlays, the Taylor 524ce LTD is both a joy to gaze upon and to play.
