Description

Taylor 914ce – Taylor’s upscale grand auditorium now features V-Class bracing.

Legendary Acoustic-electric from Taylor

The Taylor 914ce is one of those acoustics that guitar enthusiasts talk about with passion and excitement. Its craftsmanship, design, and detailed appointments have made it one of Taylor’s most popular models — and for good reason. The 914ce features Indian rosewood back and sides with a solid Sitka spruce top for a full, expressive tonal signature that has to be experienced to be believed. A tropical mahogany neck with west African ebony fingerboard offers impeccable feel and response for both flatpicking and fingerpicking, making it ideal for a variety of genres. Detailed, high-end appointments on the 914ce include a west African ebony bridge, micarta saddle, black graphite nut, and V-class bracing — all of which add to the mind-blowing resonance and tonal enrichment of this amazing instrument. When you are ready to plug in, the 914ce features Taylor’s Expression System 2 electronics for outstanding amplified acoustic tone. And to maximize comfort, the 914ce now features a Radius Armrest, offering a subtle contour that feels great whether you are sitting or standing during play.

Our 900 Series stands out as our most luxurious class of rosewood guitars, blending a raft of tone-enhancing details with premium aesthetic features. The 914ce acoustic-electric Grand Auditorium boasts V-Class™ bracing, which functions as a new sonic engine for the guitar. Not only does it enhance the volume and sustain, it also changes the soundboard movement in a way that improves the guitar’s natural intonation, or “in-tuneness.” The result is more power in the upper register and more harmonic agreement between all fretted notes, which helps chord voicings sing like never before. Players who love the deep lows and sparkling highs of rosewood will appreciate how well behaved the overtones are as notes bloom. Premium features include a beveled ebony armrest that makes your picking/strumming arm more comfortable, along with Gotoh 510 tuners, whose 21:1 gear ratio allows for precise tuning. Refined appointments include ebony binding, our Ascension fretboard/peghead inlay in paua and pearl, a paua rosette with koa and ebony purfling, and paua/koa trim along much of the body and neck. All V-Class guitars feature a black graphite nut and a new guitar label that bears the signature of master guitar designer Andy Powers.
