Overview

514ce

Offering a tonewood pairing not found elsewhere in the Taylor line, the 514ce has long been a popular choice for fingerstyle players for its soft-touch response and warmth. This Grand Auditorium boasts solid mahogany back and sides with a Western Red cedar top, a pairing that generates a punchy, clear midrange complemented by cedar's warmth and roundness. V-Class bracing inside makes for an even more textured, responsive experience with more volume and sustain, and the body shape makes for a highly versatile sound that will appeal to strummers and blues players in addition to fingerstylists. Clean appointments highlight a performance-focused aesthetic, and ES2 electronics give it fast plug-and-play utility. The 514ce ships with a hardshell case.

FEATURES

Grand Auditorium

Taylor’s signature shape embodies the ultimate all-purpose acoustic.

Tropical Mahogany

A midrange powerhouse. Mahogany is prized for balance and articulation, making it one of the best all-around tonewoods there is.

Western Red Cedar

A true performer for those with a lighter touch, cedar tops yield extra warmth and pair nicely with mahogany and rosewood.

Expression System® 2

The Expression System® 2 captures more of a guitar’s dynamic properties using a breakthrough behind-the-saddle design.

Venetian Cutaway

The Venetian cutaway is known for its soft, round lines. The sloping peak of the cutaway will vary depending on the shape of the body.

V-Class Bracing

Our patented V-Class bracing is a revolutionary new pattern — a new sonic engine — that marks a major shift away from traditional steel-string bracing patterns.
