The pinnacle of Taylor’s rosewood/spruce offerings is the 914ce, a Grand Auditorium acoustic-electric whose sonic complexity and richness are matched by its beautiful presentation and detailing. All-solid rosewood back and sides with a Sitka spruce top serve up a stunning balance of warmth and clarity, featuring low-end presence, chime-like trebles and a slightly scooped midrange that opens up space for vocals and other instruments. V-Class bracing helps push out more volume and sustain, and the built-in ebony armrest offers a more comfortable feel for your strumming/picking arm. Refined appointments include ebony binding, an Ascension inlay scheme in paua and pearl, and a paua rosette. It ships with ES2 electronics and a hardshell case.
Taylor’s signature shape embodies the ultimate all-purpose acoustic.
