Taylor's 514ce Grand Auditorium Urban Ironbark is perfect for players seeking a masterfully-crafted, well-rounded acoustic suited for a wide variety of styles and settings. Featuring a unique tonewood combination and exceptional playability, this model will capture the eyes and ears of performers and audiences alike.
The 514ce Grand Auditorium's Urban Ironbark body provides its signature tone that blends rosewood's crisp, clear highs with mahogany's warmth and punch. Its torrefied Sitka spruce top delivers a bold, balanced sound, and its V-class bracing allows the soundboard to flex naturally for better volume and sustain.
The 514ce's ES2 behind-the-saddle pickup perfectly captures its organic, woody tone when amplified. This pickup system is one of Taylor's most advanced and best-sounding pickups, courtesy of its three uniquely positioned and individually calibrated pickup sensors.
Crafted with a Venetian cutaway that allows for full access to all 20 frets, Taylor's 514ce Urban Ironbark is an excellent choice for players seeking an outstanding acoustic-electric guitar that's great for fingerstyle, flatpicking, and everything in between.
