Taylor 514CE Grand Auditorium Acoustic

A Western Red cedar top brings extra warmth and responsiveness to this popular mahogany Grand Auditorium cutaway, a perennial favorite among fingerstylists and singer-songwriters alike.

Grand Size
The Grand Auditorium size combines the width and depth of a Dreadnought with a narrower waist. Its sleek design yields a strong treble zing across the tonal spectrum and sharpens the definition of individual notes. The Grand Auditorium is a strong finger-picking guitar that also adapts well to medium strumming.

Express Yourself
Designed to faithfully reproduce your guitar's native tone, the Expression System utilizes patented dynamic sensors to capture top and string vibration like never before. Created in partnership with renowned audio pioneer, Mr. Rupert Neve, the Taylor ES is seamlessly integrated into the design of the guitar from the ground up. Onboard tone controls provide added flavor, or set flat for an uncolored, exceptionally clean amplified sound.

A Great Finish
The finish used to create this guitar's lustrous gloss top, back, and sides was developed at Taylor for maximum durability and resistance to cold-checking. This ultra-violet cured finish is also more environmentally friendly than traditional lacquer finishes.

"The Best of the best!!"
Sound: Awesome sound from such a beautiful Western Cedar top! Neck action is very impressive and the 'no-stick' mahongony neck will send you into dreamland! Feature: All features were grand! Quality: It's outstanding. Appointments are awesome but not flamboyant Value: Totally worth it compared to others of similar quality. The Wow Factor: Get back!!! You have to have this Taylor model! Overall: I have played them all - thought Ovation was tops but was sadly mistaken. Others - Guild, Fender, Martins - don't even come close.

zZounds offers a variety of Play as you Pay® installment plans that allow you to get the gear you want today.
