Builder’s Edition 614ce (WHB)

Our newest Builder’s Edition release features maple back and sides and a torrefied Sitka spruce top with a stunning Wild Honey Burst finish, along with a beveled armrest, silent satin finish, and double-carved cutaway for easy high-register access.

Builder’s Edition 614ce

This natural-finish Grand Auditorium joins the Builder’s Edition family with a maple/spruce tonewood combo that produces a responsive, focused sound, made inviting by a beveled armrest and refined cutaway for a beautifully smooth feel.

PS14ce

With stunning striped West African ebony back and sides and a rare sinker redwood top, this Presentation Grand Auditorium boasts supercharged complexity and clarity.

K24ce

On this all-koa beauty, V-Class bracing harnesses koa’s balanced articulation and smooth sustain and reveals another level of sonic sweetness. Strummed chords will resonate with more harmonic unity than ever before.

914ce

Indian rosewood’s rich overtones sound more musical than ever with the help of V-Class bracing. Players will hear more power in the upper register, while the bloom of the notes is enhanced to give players a more expressive tonal palette.

814ce DLX

This luxuriously appointed Grand Auditorium has received the V-Class upgrade, supplying a burst of power and sustain to bring even more overtonal bloom out of the rosewood/spruce tonewood combo. It’s an expressive instrument ready for any musical situation.

814ce

Our flagship Grand Auditorium boasts a refined tone and additional overtone resonance, thanks to our new V-Class bracing. With an elegant rosewood/spruce pairing, the 814ce embodies the musicality and articulation of the Taylor spirit.

714ce WSB

Outfitted with a gorgeous Western Sunburst finish and our new V-class bracing, this Grand Auditorium delivers expansive overtonal texture with a powerful low-end response and high-end sparkle from its rosewood/spruce construction.

714ce

Another rosewood entry in the Taylor line, this newly-upgraded Grand Auditorium now features even more robust touch response and low-end warmth thanks to the addition of V-Class bracing.

614ce

This V-Class-enhanced entry from our series of maple guitars gains additional power and musicality from its new bracing structure, maintaining maple’s characteristic player reflectiveness with an open, played-in tone from its torrefied spruce top.

524ce

This all-mahogany Grand Auditorium boasts enhanced resonance and clarity with the V-Class bracing design under the hood, with a beautifully dry, naturally compressed tone that allows the player to explore new creative avenues.

514ce

This Grand Auditorium, built with Neo-Tropical mahogany and a Western red cedar top, offers a warm, alluringly dry tone plus extra power and sustain from our new V-Class bracing, for a charming sound that can be molded for any musical style.

414ce-R

One of our most popular models now receives the V-Class treatment, bolstering the tonal bloom from its solid rosewood back and sides and Sitka spruce top for a textured, expressive tone that performs beautifully across genres.

414ce

Crafted with back and sides of solid African ovangkol with a Sitka spruce top, this V-Class-equipped 414ce resonates with a powerful midrange and clear highs, making it a versatile choice for the stage or studio.

324ce

A solid mahogany top over Tasmanian blackwood back and sides brings a dark allure to this 324ce, which delivers a balanced attack across the tonal spectrum with improved sustain and volume thanks to V-Class bracing.

314ce

This newly refined Grand Auditorium boasts a solid Sitka spruce top with solid sapele back and sides, along with V-Class bracing that accentuates this model’s blend of top-end shimmer and low-frequency warmth.

About Taylor Guitars

Taylor Guitars was founded in 1974 by Bob Taylor and Kurt Listug, and has grown into the leading global builder of premium acoustic guitars. Renowned for blending modern, innovative manufacturing techniques with a master craftsman's attention to detail, Taylor acoustic guitars are widely considered among the best-sounding and easiest to play in the world. The company is a pioneer in the use of computer mills, lasers and other high-tech tools and proprietary machinery, and today, Bob Taylor is widely recognized throughout the musical instrument industry as the visionary acoustic guitar manufacturer.

Our site has a wealth of information about what goes into making a Taylor guitar and how to make this very important decision. We have guides for how to find the right fit for you. Learn about the subtle differences in shapes and styles. Delve into different types of woods and construction, which are vital to the flavor and tone of an acoustic. Explore the Taylor line by series to find the look and style you want for your instrument.

Every guitar player needs a great acoustic guitar – or several – in their collection. Finding the right acoustic guitar for you can be a daunting process even for the most seasoned player. If you are new to shopping for guitars, then it is even more critical that you learn all you can before you make your first purchase. If your first acoustic guitar is not the appropriate choice for you, then it can dramatically reduce the enjoyment you will get out of your instrument. If you are a new guitar player, the wrong guitar can be downright discouraging. You want a guitar that fits you, is effortless to play, and has the rich, beautiful tone you love to make it the instrument you dream of playing hour after hour.

A free, guided tour of the Taylor factory is given every Monday through Friday at 1 p.m. (excluding holidays). Groups of 10 or more guests are required to make a reservation to guarantee space on the tour. Please contact us to schedule a tour for your group.

The Taylor Guitars factory tour takes guests through the steps of acoustic guitar construction. From wood selection to final assembly, guests will experience each process as a guitar evolves from raw wood into a finished instrument. You will also have an opportunity to visit the TaylorWare store. Here you will find everything for the Taylor fan, from apparel to gift items to replacement guitar parts. The tour lasts approximately one hour and 15 minutes and departs from the main building at 1980 Gillespie Way in El Cajon, California.
