You are looking at a Taylor 514ce Grand Auditorium Acoustic-Electric Guitar, serial number 1105116080. This is the actual guitar you will receive should you decide to purchase.

Taylor Guitars has done it yet again! After sonically and visually enhancing the 800 Series, 900 Series, and 600 Series instruments, Taylor Guitars has decided to take the 500 Series in an exciting new direction--both aesthetically and tonally.

Meet the revoiced 2016 514ce, which offers the perfect choice for singer-songwriters and light-to-medium strummers who want a dynamic instrument that can satsify all of their sonic needs. Taylor's versatile Grand Auditorium cutaway body is made with a Western Red cedar top and mahogany back & sides to give this guitar a warm, broken-in voice with plenty of strength and clarity in the midrange. Under the hood, the specially-voiced Performance bracing with relief rout offers more volume and sonic horsepower than you'd normally expect from a Grand Auditorium. The tropical mahogany neck and ebony fretboard provide that renowned playability that Taylor is known for. When you plug into your amp or PA system, you can be sure that the 514ce's sound is faithfully conveyed thanks to Taylor's patented Expression System 2 electronics.

The 500 Series instruments still showcase some of the same aesthetic details found previously within the series, but there are some new visual touches that have been updated for 2016. These updates include faux tortoise shell binding that's beautifully complemented by a matching rosette and pickguard. The mahogany-top models carry no pickguard, and the all-mahogany models come dressed in a gorgeous shaded edgeburst. Comes complete with hardshell case.
