The acoustic/electric 314ce responds well to a wide range of playing styles thanks to Taylor’s medium-size Grand Auditorium body. Sapele shares mahogany’s strong and focused midrange response and, together with a Sitka spruce top, rings out with brightness and clarity. The Elixir® HD Light strings are custom calibrated to optimize the tone with bolder highs, fuller lows, and more overall warmth, giving players an expressive tonal palette. Black binding flanks sapele’s ribbon-like grain, with small diamond fretboard inlays in Italian acrylic adding a traditional touch. The guitar incorporates a Venetian cutaway, comes equipped with Taylor’s Expression System 2 pickup, and ships in a Taylor deluxe hardshell case.
Grand Auditorium - Taylor’s signature shape embodies the ultimate all-purpose acoustic.
Solid Sitka Spruce top - The soundboard choice for most guitars, Sitka Spruce produces a broad dynamic range and accommodates a versatile range of playing styles.
Solid Sapele back and sides - One of the best all-around tonewoods there is, Sapele will deliver for any playing style.
Expression System® 2 pickup - The Expression System® 2 captures more of a guitar’s dynamic properties using a breakthrough behind-the-saddle design which features three uniquely positioned and individually calibrated pickup sensors. The location of the sensors enables a more dynamic range of acoustic sound to be captured than ever before. Together with Taylor’s custom-designed “professional audio”- grade preamp, this system produces exceptional amplified tone and responsiveness. On stage through a PA, plugged into your favorite acoustic amplifier, or direct into recording software, the Expression System 2 faithfully conveys the voice of your Taylor guitar.
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 guitar.
