Taylor 314CE Electro Acoustic Guitar
The Taylor 314ce is a Grand Auditorium shaped body featuring a solid Sitka Spruce top, Venetian cutaway and the Taylor Expression 2 system. A great guitar for pick players and fingerstyle alike.
The Taylor 314ce Grand Auditorium Electro Acoustic Guitar is one of the most popular Taylor models, a high quality workhorse yielding a stunning modern acoustic tone with legendary Taylor playability. This latest iteration (2017 spec) sees some minor tweaks including an Ebony headface and Ebony truss rod cover, plus the continuation of the 'Performance with relief rout' bracing and new small diamond inlays on the fingerboard.
Whether your are a pick player or prefer to play fingerstyle (or even both) then the Taylor 314ce is an ideal option. The signature Grand Auditorium shape, as designed by Bob Taylor in 1994, delivers a solid low register, great presence in the midrange and sweet singing tones at the upper end. The body construction of a solid Sitka Spruce top in conjunction with Sapele back and sides lends itself to the delightful modern tone whilst the Venetian cutaway enables access to the upper frets, making lead lines and upper register notes easily accessible and comfortable to play.
The satin finished Tropical Mahogany neck is adorned with an Ebony fingerboard and utilizes another leading acoustic guitar development as designed by Taylor - the NT Neck. The NT Neck is the most stable and easy to adjust neck in the industry - lending itself to a neck that will last a lifetime and is ultra playable.
The 314ce now features Taylor's new Expression System 2 electronics system. At the heart of the system is Taylor's behind the saddle pickup, which features three uniquely placed pickup sensors that in conjunction Taylor's custom designed professional audio grade preamp conveys the voice of the acoustic guitar whilst capturing more of the guitar's dynamic properties. Controls couldn't be simpler - volume, bass and treble.
The Taylor 314ce has the legendary Taylor build quality and playability, making this a real guitar for life - whether played with a pick, fingerstyle, acoustically, amplified, in the home, studio or on stage the Taylor 314ce will exceed expectations and deliver time after time, year after year.
