Rich Taylor Sound -- Any Way You Strum It

Whether you're lamenting over tender ballads at a coffeehouse open mic or jangling for a campfire crowd, Taylor's 714ce offers rich acoustic or electric sound for any setting. Crafted with Taylor's versatile Grand Auditorium body shape, it feels at home in the hands of heavy strummers and subtle pickers alike.

Hear the Taylor 714ce in action with this zZounds exclusive video:


Engelmann Top Adds Folksy Warmth

Players itching to strum a guitar that both sounds and looks richly aged will appreciate how the 714ce's Engelmann spruce top enhances the guitar. Known for enhanced overtones and slightly mellowed highs, Engelmann spruce gives players a well-defined and rich tone that comes through clearly even in low volumes. The top is complemented by the guitar's Indian rosewood back and sides, helping to round out the warm sound.

A Body Shape for All Players

The 714ce is crafted in Taylor's hugely popular Grand Auditorium body style, preferred by guitarists who cover a lot of ground in their music. It's equally suitable for heavy strumming or nuanced fingerpicking. With a rounded shoulder and slightly wider bout than a traditional dreadnought, this shape offers well-defined lows while maintaining the playability of a slimmer guitar. The body is coupled with a 20-fret tropical mahogany neck with ebony fretboard for smooth playing, and a Venetian cutaway gives players access to those upper frets.

Electronics Keep Amplified Sound Pure

Loaded with Taylor's own Expression System electronics, the 714ce is ready to be plugged in and played without sacrificing its natural tone. The all-magnetic system amplifies the guitar like a series of microphones would, for a pure sound uncolored by a pickup. A Dynamic Body Sensor mounted on the soundboard and a Dynamic String Sensor beneath the fretboard work together to register the 714ce's tone and amplify it faithfully. If you want to tweak your sound, the volume, bass, and treble controls on the guitar's shoulder offer tone adjustment options.

Customer Reviews
3.5 out of 5 (2 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Taylor 714CE"
Sound: The sound quality is excellent, given each guitar is unique. The guitar response to the touch very nicely, whether light/heavy finger style or strumming. Personal choice of strings are Cleartones .056 to .013 but will continue to explore. Feature: N/A Ease of Use: Very easy, you can tap on it and that sounds good. Quality: High quality, only one issue is the neck needed resetting with a different shim due to unmanageable fret buzz. Once the neck was reset with a different shim fret buzz is now manageable by neck adjustments. Value: I believe that relative to other instruments in similar price range it holds it value. Manufacturer Support: Called once and they were helpful on providing information that I was looking for. The Wow Factor: Quality, sound, playability, looks, company reputation. Overall: A Taylor 714CE 2013 was purchased from zZounds. The site and staff was all very helpful and moved everything along very well. Kudos to them all, being able to purchase instruments with monthly payments allows many to obtain instruments we may not purchase directly, again thanks for that.The Taylor guitar was received very quickly and well packed with no damage.The guitar itself is very beautiful and sounds wonderful. However there was a problem with the neck setting which caused un-necessary fret buzz. I did call and was told about authorized Taylor shops 2 plus hours away and decided to take it to a renowned local lutheir who has worked in Taylor shops. The neck was reset with a different shim and now plays very well without the fret buzz. This did cost me $100+ to have done. No matter how any adjustment was made we could not get the fret buzz out without adjusting the neck.Aside from that everything went very smoothly with zZsounds. I am not sure how that one gout out of the Taylor factory.I remain undeterred by this and will keep using zZounds and considering Taylor products in the future.
