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 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.

                  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.
