The Taylor 314ce acoustic electric guitar gives you sumptuous sound and striking good looks.

Taylor's solid sapele/spruce 314ce responds well to a wide range of playing styles, thanks to the medium-size Grand Auditorium body. Sapele's clear, focused tone resembles that of mahogany with an extra splash of top-end brightness, while 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. Featured appointments include black binding, a black pickguard, Italian acrylic small diamond fretboard inlays, and a 3-ring rosette. Comes complete with a Venetian cutaway for comfortable upper fret access and Taylor Expression System 2 electronics for superb amplified tone and performance. The guitar ships in a Taylor deluxe hardshell case.

      Comments about Taylor 314ce Grand Auditorium Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

      The 314ce is on of my favorite Taylor acoustics out. Its well balanced tonally, is extremely resonant, and is consistent. If you're looking to get into a USA built Taylor this is a great place to start. This is a real hands on product review from Andy @ Sam Ash Indianapolis

        Comments about Taylor 314ce Grand Auditorium Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

        The Taylor 314 acoustic guitar combines North American Sitka spruce with African mahogany in a Grand Auditorium body shape to produce exceptionally pronounced midrange and treble, making this a fantastic fingerpicker's guitar. The body on the Taylor 314 is a full-size Grand Auditorium style. This is Taylor's most popular body shape, combining the 4.625-inch depth of a Dreadnought and the slightly deeper side curves of a Grand Concert. Combining elements from these two styles, the Grand Auditorium body proves equally versatile to strumming and fingerpicking styles. Great playing Guitar!

          Great workhorse instrument! Consistent feel and tone time and again. A best seller for sure. Great choice if you like a no frills working mans instrument! and it has that signature Taylor tone.
          Made of solid tone woods in the USA.

          Great Taylor, Batman

          By 

          from Canoga Park, CA

          Comments about Taylor 314ce Grand Auditorium Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

          This is one of the guitars Taylor's known for, with its Grand Auditorium body and dialed in low action, this is a professional instrument, meant to be plucked with fingers or a pick. The mahogany body gives it a warmer, more midrangy tone that most other Taylor models.

          This has been a hands on review from Josh at Sam Ash, Canoga Park, CA.

                Comments about Taylor 314ce Grand Auditorium Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

                Im a huge fan of Taylor. This all solid wood body delivers a great tone. The feel of the New Technology neck is great and makes neck adjustments super easy for your luthier. The ebony fretboard has a great feel and tone. I cant say enough great things about Taylor Guitars.
