The Builder’s Edition collection boasts an array of comfort-focused contours and top-tier tonewoods. This Grand Auditorium model, the Builder’s Edition 324ce, serves up a bold voice thanks to back and sides of solid Urban Ash, which is responsibly sourced from trees in cities or municipal areas in need of removal due to safety concerns, end of life or other reasons. Its rich, mahogany-esque voice yields ample midrange clarity and presence with a strong focus on the fundamental note, minimizing overtones and remaining balanced across the frequency spectrum. Inside, V-Class bracing helps push out more volume and longer sustain, and the neo-tropical mahogany top provides some natural compression for a smoother attack. On the outside, this model is designed for unmatched playability and comfort with a beveled armrest and cutaway, chamfered edges, and a noise-reducing Silent Satin finish. Complete with ES2 electronics and a deluxe hardshell case, the Builder’s Edition 324ce represents the intersection of premium craftsmanship, rich tone, musical utility and environmental responsibility.
