What's special about this product?
Features: What it does for you:
Grand Auditorium body shape Full bass and articulate highs; great for singers
Sitka spruce top Projects rich, crisp and responsive tone
Sapele back and sides Rich, warm, and focused midrange; added sustain
Taylor Expression System pickups Innovative multiple pickup system on-board
Harness the captivating tone of a Taylor Grand Auditorium with the 314ce. From rich, vibrant lows to bright, shimmering highs, this acoustic-electric yields stunning balance across its entire tonal range. Combined with onboard Taylor Expression System electronics, the 314ce is a great choice for singer-songwriters, spiritual leaders, and other players in need of a lively and versatile acoustic-electric guitar.

Warm, Snappy Acoustic Tones

Strumming a 314ce, it's easy to understand why players from such a wide range of genres have flocked to the Taylor Grand Auditorium body style. The compact body shape emphasizes both high and low frequencies which leaves space in the middle for a singing voice to occupy. The 314ce features a Sitka spruce top with a forward-shifted bracing pattern to give accentuated snap to the higher frequencies, while the sapele back and sides provide a warmer underlying sound. Sapele shares many tonal characteristics with mahogany and adds simultaneous depth and clarity to the overall tonal character of the guitar.

Taylor Expression System Electronics

It wouldn't be right to give a guitar with this much tonal character just any old pickup, so this beauty is outfitted with the Taylor Expression System. By combining the signals from sensor under the soundboard and another at the bridge, the electronic system captures every nuance and subtle timbre of the guitar itself. The 314ce shines with the same gorgeous tones run through a PA system as it does unplugged -- the Taylor Expression System is that precise and accurate.

Features:

- Sapele back and sides with Sitka spruce top
- Comfortable tropical mahogany neck with smooth ebony fretboard
- Excellent focus and projection with forward shifted bracing pattern
- Deep venetian cutaway for upper fret access
- Gloss finish on top and satin finish on back, sides and neck
- Taylor Expression System (r) electronics
- Included Taylor case

Product Description

The richness of the solid-wood acoustic experience begins with Taylor's 300 Series of which the Taylor 314ce is part of. Sapele shares mahogany's lively tonal response and, together with a gloss-finish Sitka spruce top, rings out with a brightness and clarity that give these guitars a definitive Taylor voice. Black binding flanks sapele's ribbon-like grain, with large pearl fretboard dots adding a traditional touch.

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Taylor 314ce"
Overall: Have owned many guitars in my time. Dollar for dollar, this is the guitar to have. It's like owning a Honda Accord, not the most expensive vehicle but certainly one of the finest for the money. This model has great sound, playability, and simple beauty. It is rock solid. Even the case is impressive. But most of all, it's the SOUND! Always the SOUND that counts. You can't go wrong with this beauty. It's worth every dime. Honest. Have I ever lied to you before?
Style of Music: Folk. Finger picking and strumming with a pick. Simple stuff. Chords mostly.
