You are looking at a Taylor Limited Edition 514ce-FM LTD Grand Auditorium Florentine Cutaway Acoustic-Electric Guitar, serial number 1110165129. This is the actual guitar you will receive should you decide to purchase.

Introduced at Summer NAMM 2015, Taylor Guitars is proud to offer a trio of Limited Edition Grand Auditorium models that pair premium tonewoods and features with an array of fresh, elegant adornments including a hand-crafted Florentine cutaway plus a tasteful selection of natural-wood/pearl appointments.

Blending the tonal warmth, balance and clarity of the mahogany/spruce tonewood combination with unbelievable aesthetic allure, the Limited Edition 514ce-FM LTD marries beautifully figured curly mahogany back and sides to a premium Sitka spruce top. Paired with Adirondack spruce CV bracing, the 514ce-FM LTD produces a strong, full voice with exceptional volume and superb midrange focus. Thanks to Taylor's versatile Grand Auditorium shape and a classic pairing of tonewoods, the 514ce-FM LTD offers a dynamic sonic palette that'll respond beautifully to virtually any playing style.

What really stands out on this limited edition model is its dramatic, sharp Florentine cutaway. Typically reserved as a custom option on the 500 Series instruments and above, the hand-crafted Florentine cutaway is more a complex and labor-intensive cutaway in comparison to the Venetian cutaway. Functional and artistic all at the same time, the Florentine cutaway adds an elegant visual touch while providing even greater access to the highest frets on the fingerboard.

An array of new appointments also set this 514ce-FM LTD apart from the rest. The top is adorned with enticing curly maple edging, rosewood top/soundhole binding, and a beautiful rosewood/mother-of-pearl rosette while the back is also bound by rosewood and showcases a rosewood backstrip. Capstone fretboard inlays in rosewood and mother-of-pearl complement the rosette and other natural-wood trimmings beautifully. Other top-shelf features include a full-gloss body finish, a set of premium Gotoh gold tuning machines and Taylor Expression System 2 electronics. Comes complete with a Taylor deluxe hardshell case and a limited edition interior label.
