You are looking at a Taylor PS14ce Grand Auditorium Acoustic-Electric Guitar, serial number 1110103070. This is the actual guitar you will receive should you decide to purchase.

The Presentation Series are by far the most tonally and visually enticing acoustics available from Taylor-- built from the highest quality tonewoods and the finest appointments. The Presentation Series acoustics show off the fine artistic and luthierie talents of the craftsmen at Taylor with gorgeous top-shelf aesthetics and a beautiful sound to boot.

The PS14ce is crafted from highest grade Sitka spruce for the soundboard and is combined with tropical cocobolo for the back and sides. Sitka spruce is the go-to tonewood (especially for Bob Taylor) for acoustic guitar tops because of its sonic versatility, yielding an expansive range across the entire tonal spectrum with incredible articulation and clarity, suitable for finger-stylists and flatpickers alike. Aside from exhibiting breathtaking grain patterns, cocobolo is ultra responsive to playing nuances and produces bright, articulate tones. Tonally, cocobolo can be compared to koa except cocobolo yields much better resonance in the bass range. The body also features a contoured ebony armrest and a smooth-lined, soft venetian cutaway, blending both comfort and beauty.

The of the PS14ce top is supported by Taylor's CV bracing with patented relief rout. Typically, due to the slight differences in the contouring in the scalloping, guitars that employ the CV bracing will have better projection and a thick, rich sound without sacrificing articulation. Taylor's relief rout is a technique used to enhance the tone of the guitar by carving a groove along the inside edges of the top to loosen them up. This will provide the top with a little more give, which allows the top to vibrate more freely without giving up its structural integrity, thus resulting in enhanced bass response, increased volume and well-balanced tonality.

The PS14ce takes form in a Grand Auditorium body,  Taylor's most popular since Bob Taylor introduced it in 1994, bearing refined proportions that fell between a Dreadnought and Grand Concert. The Dreadnought body style was considered to be the ideal choice for strummers and flatpickers while the Grand Concert body was considered to be the best option for fingerstylists. The Grand Auditorium body style was designed to capture the best tonal qualities of both bodies, producing a unique acoustic voice that was big enough to handle medium-strength picking and strumming, yet capable of maintaining an impressive balance across the tonal spectrum, especially in the midrange, producing well-defined notes with great clarity, suitable for both fingerstylists and strummers alike. The Grand Auditorium body can adapt to any number of musical scenarios, so whether you're recording in the studio, on stage at an open mic night or playing amongst a mix of other instruments, this body style is sure to deliver the best possible tones in any situation. The Grand Auditorium shape is a great all-purpose guitar, and continues to be Taylor's best selling body shape because of it's musical versatility.

The PS14ce employs Taylor's Expression System, an all-magnetic acoustic guitar pickup system that works like a microphone to produce a pure signal and a warm, organic acoustic sound. The ES enables the authentic sounds and tones of the PS14ce to project the way they should, naturally, rather then diluting the guitars genuine tones with the sound of the pickup itself. The ES also features 3 simple controls to shape your tone to perfection – volume, bass and treble.

The satin finished neck is carved from tropical mahogany and features an ebony fingerboard, bridge and headstock overlay that all boast stunning Nouveau inlays. The headstock also features a mother-of-pearl Taylor logo and set of high-quality Gotoh tuners. Other luxurious appointments that adorn this PS14ce include a cocobolo backstrap and paua edge trim and rosette.

The PS14ce comes with the complete protection of a Taylor deluxe hardshell case.
