Taylor 514ce Cedar & Mahogany Grand Auditorium with V Class Bracing


We're sorry. This item is no longer in stock.


Taylor's 514ce combines the sweet-sounding midrange of a cedar top, the low-end depth of mahogany back/sides, and the revolutionary new "V-Class" bracing structure. You would be hard-pressed to find a more versatile Grand Auditorium, with heaps of sustain, bold projection, and a balanced, yet articulate sound. The guitar's tonal warmth is translated very well through Taylor's exceptional on-board ES-2 Electronics. Its playing comfort is enhanced through the inclusion of a Venetian cutaway and Tropical Mahogany neck with a West African Ebony fretboard. Plus, it has a few nice aesthetic touches that bring everything together: faux tortoise shell binding, pickguard, and rosette, Century fretboard inlays, and a new peghead inlay. This is a remarkable Grand Auditorium with a bold, warm voice and exceptional playability.
