Taylor 714ce Acoustic Electric Guitar

A Fingerstyle Workhorse
Combining the full-bodied sound of Indian rosewood with the responsiveness of a Western Red cedar top creates this fingerstyle workhorse. Equipped with the Taylor Expression System and cutaway, this Grand Auditorium guitar shines in any venue.

Get more Definition
The Grand Auditorium 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 fingerpicking guitar that also adapts well to medium strumming.

Taylor Expression System
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.

Fit and 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.

5 out of 5 (29 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
This review has been selected by our experts as particularly helpful. "If You're a player, you'll love this guitar. Well worth the cost!"
Sound: Sounds like I have a mini amp inside the guitar. Really has a big sound acousticly. Pluged in, it is overwhelming. Beatiful rich tones you can feel the guitar resonate through your body. The most outstanding guitar I have ever owned. I just bought a 814ce. Feature: The Fishman is really a nice feature for rythm guitar players and acoustic leads. You can alter your sound with ease. I like it! Quality: Taylor says it all craftsmanship and sound outstanding. Value: The older it gets the better tones the the wood will produce making the guitar more valuble. A good investment! at least I tell my wife that! Manufacturer Support: The Taylor guitar company has been very responsive and easy to work with. The Wow Factor: Played Martins (very nice guitars) Played Gibsons. But play a Taylor and you will lust to won it. Hardly a day goes by that I don't pick her up and caress her. When my wife complains that I hold that guitar more then I do her. I know I have been playing too long! Overall: Yesterday I bought a 814ce. I like these guitars. They make you wanna play better.

"Best Guitar I've ever owned"
Overall: I was longing to buy a nice guitar after many years on good Yamaha's after my treasured Custom Prairie Song Washburn was stolen in 1987. I was in mourning for over 20 years. I forum buddy had a 614 Taylor and raved so I went in to buy one. No luck, they only had a 714CE. Turned out it was model up the ladder. I picked up the guitar and literally after one strum knew I have found a stunning instrument. You know how confusing it can be to buy guitars with many choices, well I thought I really should pack this baby up and take it home...but...I had to try a few others. So I played the Dave Matthews Signature Guitar and that too s=was incredible though slightly different. the confusion started. I then picked up a 914CE and that blew me away as I have looked for a big concert guitar for many years. Here is was. I then played higher priced Martins and Gibsons but they didn't hold a candle to the Taylors (Sorry guys..). Being Aussie I also had to play a Maton but that lasted about 3 seconds. I think it was dud. So back to the 714CE, it ticked all the boxes and felt right all the time, beautiful tone, and just one of the nicest guitars I had played. I did the smart thing and bought it and am still thrilled when I pick it up. When I play in bars, everyone asks what it is and if they can have a play. While there may be variation in each unit they produce, from all the reviews I have read since though, you are pretty much assured of winning if you choose this instrument. I am off to look at buying a 914CE tomorrow (hence I found this page). Love what Taylor has done. Thank you sir.
