Overview

514ce-N

A cedar top paired with mahogany back and sides yields a captivating tone profile on this nylon-string cutaway Grand Auditorium. Cedar adds played-in warmth to mahogany’s focused midrange, and cedar’s responsiveness to the nylon strings will produce clean articulation for fingerstyle players and light strummers. Taylor’s slim, easy-playing necks, a Venetian cutaway, and our onboard ES-N electronics update the classical voice with modern amenities that make this a smooth crossover instrument for steel-string players. Featured appointments include a grained ivoroid Century fretboard inlay, faux tortoise shell binding, a rosette of faux tortoise shell framed by grained ivoroid, and an all-gloss body. The guitar ships in a Taylor deluxe 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.

ES-N®

This under-saddle transducer was designed for Taylor nylon-string models.

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.
