Taylor 514ce Grand Auditorium Acoustic

Taylor Guitars is introducing a limited run of Grand Auditorium guitars featuring a trio of stunning tonewoods and features a dramatic, hand-crafted Florentine cutaway and a new appointment package to accent these hand-selected woods.

Each guitar is accented by a sharp Florentine cutaway, which is more labor-intensive to create than a softer Venetian cutaway, but, offers greater access to the highest portion of the fingerboard.

The Limiteds are enhanced by a rich appointment package featuring Indian rosewood binding and curly maple edge trim. A new "Capstone" inlay of mother-of-pearl and rosewood graces the fretboard and rosette, and the guitar body is finished in high gloss. Inside, premium Adirondack CV bracing gives each guitar more sonic sparkle. The models come equipped with Taylor's award-winning Expression System 2 electronics, which debuted in 2014 and feature a revolutionary piezo pickup design that gives players a more authentic amplified acoustic tone. Each guitar comes in a deluxe Hardshell case.

Features:

- Sitka Spruce with Flame Maple or Quilted Spruce back and sides
- Florentine cutaway
- Mother-of-pearl/rosewood Capstone fretboard inlay
- Single ring mother-of-pearl/rosewood rosette
- Rosewood binding (including sound hole) with curly maple top edge trim
- Rosewood back strip
- 6-mil all-gloss body
- Gotoh Gold tuners
- Expression System 2 electronics
- Limited edition guitar label
- Taylor deluxe hardshell case included

Customer Reviews
5 out of 5 (1 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Gorgeous"
Overall: I absolutely love this guitar. I was torn, because I also have a 414ce, and the 414 sounds just as good as this one, but the 514 to me is sexier. I love the sharp cutaway as opposed to the rounded ones. I love the inlays. They are not too fancy or over-the-top like some of the higher-end Taylors. The only thing I am not crazy about is the Elixir strings. I like a lighter gauge, brighter string. But the thing abotu strings is, you can change them. For me, this feels like the perfect balance between beautiful, fancy, and plain and simple. It is not over-embellished at all - just plain beautiful. I absolutely love it.
Style of Music: I like Classic Rock, Prog Rock, some blues, funk, and definitely hard rock.

1. zZounds offers the industry‘s most musician-friendly payment plans

zZounds offers a variety of Play as You Pay installment plans that allow you to get the gear you want today. While our competitors might offer house credit cards that require you to fill out an application and pass a credit check, our payment plans are easy to get, simple to use, and, best of all, accrue zero interest. Unlike those house credit cards that can leave you vulnerable to exorbitant interest charges once the promotional period ends, we never have and never will charge interest when you take advantage of one of the zZounds Play as You Pay plans.
