514ce-N (2012)

A cedar top paired with mahogany back and sides yields a captivating tone profile on this nylon-string Grand Auditorium. Cedar adds played-in warmth to mahogany’s focused midrange, and cedar’s responsiveness to the nylon strings will produce a nice 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. Featured appointments include an grained ivoroid Century fretboard inlay, grained ivoroid binding and rosette, and an all-gloss body. The guitar ships in a Taylor deluxe hardshell case.
