About Taylor TG314CE Acoustic-Electric Guitar – Natural:

6-string Acoustic-electric Guitar with Sitka Spruce Top, Sapele Back and Sides, Mahogany Neck, Ebony Fingerboard, and Expression System 2 Electronics – Natural

Taylor’s Gorgeous 314ce with V-Class Bracing

The Taylor 314ce is a solid Grand Auditorium with excellent top-end response and a natural, direct tone. The 314ce’s sapele back and sides have a warm, full body, with a bell-like sparkle and broad dynamic range thanks to a Sitka spruce top. You also get Taylor’s revolutionary V-Class bracing, which boosts volume evenly across the tonal spectrum, increases sustain, and improves the natural intonation of the instrument by creating a more synergistic response from the soundboard. The 314ce’s ES2 electronics provide convenient and natural-sounding amplification for the stage and studio with discreet tone and volume controls to help you shape your sound.

 

V-Class bracing: a sonic revelation

Bracing is the internal framework of an acoustic guitar that helps shape its sound. Although X-bracing has been standard in acoustic guitars for over a century, it creates an innate conflict between two key elements of a guitar’s sound: volume and sustain. The guitar’s top (its soundboard) contributes to both. The flexibility of the top generates volume (projection), while its stiffness generates sustain. And with X-braced guitar tops, here’s where the trade-off comes in: when something is made stiffer, its flexibility is reduced (and vice versa). V-Class bracing changes all that.

With Taylor’s V-Class bracing, an acoustic guitar top can be both stiff and flexible — for more volume and sustain. V-Class bracing provides stiffness parallel to the strings for more rigidity and hence sustain. Flexibility on either side generates the air movement necessary for robust projection. It’s the best of both worlds. This groundbreaking innovation also improves intonation, not only producing notes that are louder and with longer sustain — but more in tune with each other. V-Class bracing boosts volume evenly across the tonal spectrum, increases sustain, and improves the natural intonation of the instrument by creating a more synergistic response from the soundboard. This fosters a more harmonious relationship between the notes you play, helping chords to ring out in cohesive splendor. Pick up a Taylor with V-Class bracing and experience it for yourself.

 

Grand Auditorium body style delivers a full sound and sleek look

Acoustic players all over the world reach for Taylor Grand Auditorium guitars like the 314ce. This guitar’s comfortable narrow waist, rich full range of sounds, sharp definition, and sleek look make it an excellent intermediate option for fingerpickers and singer/songwriters who depend on a good-sounding, good-playing instrument night after night.

 

Sitka spruce and satin sapele balance warmth and sparkle

This 314ce’s time-proven Sitka spruce top gives you good projection with just the right amount of sparkle. This acoustic-electric guitar’s sapele back and sides also give it a warm and mellow quality, similar to that of mahogany, for a full and balanced tone. Guitarists far and wide agree that the sapele’s satin finish feels good in the hands and looks great under stage lights.

 

Taylor ES2 electronics for a natural and dynamic amplified sound

Artists who play plugged in will appreciate the Taylor 314ce’s natural-sounding Expression System 2 (ES2) electronics. This system features a 3-section proprietary pickup located behind the guitar’s saddle for clear and accurate sound reproduction. A master volume control and a pair of tone controls let you tweak your sound and output from the stage, and a discreet phase switch provides vital onboard feedback suppression.
