Taylor 514ce Grand Auditorium Acoustic-Electric Guitar, Left-Handed (with Case)

Bring sonic complexity and stylish looks to your gigs with this 514ce. A torrefied spruce top and urban ironbark back and sides unleash crisp, punchy tones.

Introducing the reimagined Taylor 514ce acoustic electric guitar. Master luthier and guitar designer Andy Powers has redesigned the 500 series grand auditorium model with a host of new woods and features. In the spirit of forging new pathways in tonal possibilities, Taylor is proud to introduce urban ironbark, or red iron bark, as the new wood for the back and sides for the 514ce.

Sourced through our urban wood initiative, urban ironbark is destined to become a favorite among guitar players. Iron bark is dense, like ebony, and captures the sonic depth of rosewood accelerated to new heights. When paired with the torrefied Sitka Spruce top, you get a sound that is loud yet sweet with piano like fidelity and complexity. The appointments of the new 500 series capture the traditional aesthetic while adding touches to highlight the new wood pairing. The back and sides get a light stain and a shaded edgeburst to highlight the beauty of the iron bark and are highlighted in a gloss finish for the body and satin finish for the neck.

The 514ce features Aerial inlays on the fretboard and bridge, faux tortoise binding on the body, a single ring ab rosette with maple and black purfling, and Taylor nickel tuners. The guitar features Taylor's revolutionary V class bracing system, which helps increase volume and sustain while improving the natural intonation of the notes and comes equipped with Taylor's award winning ES2 active electronics. The 514ce ships in a deluxe hard shell case.
