Taylor's proprietary electronics capture every shade of the sparkling nylon-string sound.
The Taylor NS34ce Grand Auditorium Nylon-String Guitar boasts increased volume, sustain, and bass frequencies while maintaining tonal subtlety and pristine treble response. The Taylor NS43ce has a Sitka spruce top and sapele back and sides in a grand auditorium body style.
The NS34ce is an example of the Taylor take on classical guitar design with a bit of twist. Think of it as classical tone meets Taylor playability, beginning with a slim and fast 1 7/8" neck, and a cutaway body.
Taylor's ES-N piezo system offers high-fidelity amplified tone, unprecedented dynamic range, and extraordinary resistance to feedback and distortion. It enables all of the expressive subtleties of your playing to come through, just the way you intended.
If you are ready to explore a new guitar tone from Taylor, the nylon-string NS34 is a great place to play.

Comments about Taylor NS34ce Cutaway Nylon-String Acoustic-Electric Guitar (2010 Model):
Let me start out by saying that I've been playing guitar for over 35 years, seven of which included studying classical guitar. If you are strictly a classical player, this guitar is not for you. However, if you're like me, primarily a steel-string player, this guitar will definitely open up new tonal possibilities that your steel-string guitar can not meet. It's weird, but I now seem to gravitate to different styles of music when I pick up this nylon-string guitar that I never found satisfying on my steel strings. For instance, Acoustic Jazz just sounds better to me on this Taylor than my other guitars. Same goes for Celtic and Contemporary-New/Agey stuff. I don't own an amp, so I can not speak to the guitar's electronics. As far as playability, I play strictly fingerstyle, and all of my steel strings have always had 1 3/4" nut widths. The 1 7/8" on this Taylor was surprisingly easy to get used to, thanks to Taylor's traditionally low neck profiles. I find I have no problems switching between my guitars in a single sitting. Finally, I have always hated Taylor steel-string guitars. Never liked the way they sound (too bright) or how they played (neck profiles are too low). But, I did not hesitate to pick up this nylon-string guitar from Taylor. It is a well built, high quality instrument, even though it is one of their lower end nylon models. It is a great solution for steel-players looking for a mellow, nylon vibe.
