Taylor Guitars readies new nylon-string model
PRESS RELEASE: Building upon the success of the company's Nylon Series (NS) guitars, Taylor Guitars is set to release a new nylon-string model which embodies all that classical and steel string players alike have come to love about Taylor's NS line.
From exceptional classical tone, to Taylor's slim and fast ultra-playable neck, the new NS24 offers players the familiar feel and sound of a Taylor NS, all at an affordable price.
The NS24 features a Grand Auditorium (GA) body shape crafted from satin-finished Indian rosewood laminate back and sides, a solid Sitka spruce top, and a mahogany neck. The slotted peghead is overlaid with Indian rosewood, with a soundhole rosette that features a hand-inlaid geometrical pattern of Mexican cyprus and Myrtle wood.
The new nylon-string delivers signature Taylor playability with the company's patented NT neck and is appointed with stylish yet understated classical chrome tuners with cream buttons. On the inside, Taylor's classical-style fan bracing produces a clear, bright sound, with strong treble notes and impressive sustain.
The model is offered in two styles: as a non-cutaway/electric in the NS24e, a first for the company, or as a cutaway/electric in the NS24ce. Both the NS24e and NS24ce feature Taylor's proprietary ES-T under-saddle, single-source pickup for a rich amplified tone.
The ES-T captures the individual elements of each string, while an onboard preamp and the same active controls found on Taylor's Expression System provide clear and balanced articulation.
The NS24 joins six different nylon-string models currently offered by Taylor Guitars. Introduced in 2001 and designed with steel-stringed players in mind, the Taylor Guitars Nylon Series (NS) guitars feature either a Grand Concert (GC) or Grand Auditorium (GA) body shape and tonewood combinations of sapele/Sitka spruce (NS32ce, NS34ce), Big Leaf Maple/Engelmann spruce (NS62ce, NS64ce) and Indian rosewood/Western Red Cedar (NS72ce, NS74ce).
The NS24e will be offered at a suggested retail price of $1198 and the NS24ce at $1398. The guitars will make their retail debuts at US Taylor dealers in early August and internationally in September.
