Taylor 314CE V-Class Electro Acoustic Guitar
The Taylor 314ce Grand Auditorium Electro Acoustic Guitar is one of the most popular Taylor models, a high quality workhorse yielding a stunning modern acoustic tone with legendary Taylor playability. This latest iteration includes the groundbreaking V-Class bracing system, alongside an all-solid wood construction and Taylor's Expression 2 electronics system.
Whether your are a pick player or prefer to play fingerstyle (or even both) then the Taylor 314ce is an ideal option. The signature Grand Auditorium shape, as designed by Bob Taylor in 1994, delivers a solid low register, great presence in the midrange and sweet singing tones at the upper end. The body construction of a solid Sitka Spruce top in conjunction with Sapele back and sides lends itself to the delightful modern tone whilst the Venetian cutaway enables access to the upper frets, making lead lines and upper register notes easily accessible and comfortable to play.
The V-Class bracing is an all new concept developed by master guitar designer Andy Powers of Taylor guitars from the ground up. This game changing advancement builds the internal framework of the 314ce and as a result dictates the way the guitars top vibrates, vastly improving the sound by remaining both stiff enough to offer great sustain but flexible enough to produce excellent volume. In addition, V-bracing allows the top to keep in tune with the vibrating strings, thus allowing notes and chords played anywhere on the neck to be more consistent and in tune with each other.
The satin finished Tropical Mahogany neck is adorned with an Ebony fingerboard and utilizes another leading acoustic guitar development as designed by Taylor - the NT Neck. The NT Neck is the most stable and easy to adjust neck in the industry - lending itself to a neck that will last a lifetime and is ultra playable.
The 314ce features Taylor's new Expression System 2 electronics system. At the heart of the system is Taylor's behind the saddle pickup, which features three uniquely placed pickup sensors that in conjunction Taylor's custom designed professional audio grade preamp conveys the voice of the acoustic guitar whilst capturing more of the guitar's dynamic properties. Controls couldn't be simpler - volume, bass and treble.
The Taylor 314ce has the legendary Taylor build quality and playability, making this a real guitar for life - whether played with a pick, fingerstyle, acoustically, amplified, in the home, studio or on stage the Taylor 314ce will exceed expectations and deliver time after time, year after year.
