The Taylor 314ce acoustic electric guitar gives you sumptuous sound and striking good looks. Fast, free shipping from Sam Ash Direct at the guaranteed lowest price.

The Taylor 314ce Acoustic-Electric guitar features a grand Auditorium body, a Venetian cutaway, and the Taylor expression system. It’s the perfect choice for stage performance but is equally at home in the recording studio.

The Taylor 314ce features a Sitka Spruce top, known for its bright and snappy resonance. The back and sides of the guitar are made from Sapele, which was chosen for its warm tone and open midrange. When you put these 2 woods together the result is an acoustic electric guitar that’s perfect for strong rhythmic playing styles that can really cut through an otherwise dense mix, but it’s also right at home playing light-touch finger style. The 25.5” scale length neck is made from tropical American Mahogany and is adorned with beautiful large pearl dot inlay.

The Taylor 314ce guitar features the Taylor Expression System electronics.  You want to amplify the great acoustic sound of your Taylor guitar, not make it sound like an electric guitar.  So Taylor developed the Expression System to deliver the true sound of the Taylor guitar amplifies your 314ce delivering a clear, clean, natural sound. You can adjust the onboard tone controls to carve out your sound the way you like. Using a proprietary magnetic pickup system similar to a microphone, you’ll hear pure, high fidelity acoustic guitar amplification that will send chills up the spines of your audience.  Because the Expression System is tailor made for your Taylor guitar, you know that your guitar will sound its best through PA systems and acoustic guitar amps.

The Taylor 314ce is finished in an eye-catching Satin with a Gloss top. Taylor’s UV finish is the thinnest and most durable finish available.

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

                The 314ce is an excellent offering from Taylor guitars. The combination of spruce with Sapele is a slight variation on a popular tonewood combination. Sapele is similar to mahogany in tone, but not quite as deep. Paired together, these woods provide a very balanced tone which complements this guitars' versatility. The Grand Auditorium body style revolutionized the way guitars were being made, and quickly became one of Taylors' top selling shapes. It provides a full bodied and clear tone for fingerpicking, and also allows for great projection and volume when using a pick. Taylors' own expression system sounds great through either a PA or guitar amplifier.
