It's hard to out-do a Taylor guitar. Their decades of experience in the guitar business have given them the knowledge and capability to make instruments of the highest caliber. This Taylor 314e acoustic-electric features a Sitka spruce top on a sapele body in Grand Auditorium style, Taylor's revolutionary V-Class bracing system, and groundbreaking ES2 electronics. This guitar is for the player looking for great sound, versatility, and wants to climb to the summit of acoustic design and performance.

Sitka Spruce Top on Sapele Body in Grand Auditorium Style
The Grand Auditorium body style is a staple of Taylor's acoustic lineup. Affording full-bodied strength and resonance, the design is popular with guitarists looking for that full sound when they strum or pick. This 314e features the Grand Auditorium style body carved from sapele. A tonewood known for its consistency across the sonic spectrum, sapele is good for many different styles, as it maintains a bright treble. Sitka spruce was selected for the soundboard of this guitar, thanks to its dynamic tone, which much like its sapele base, accommodates numerous and versatile playing styles.

Taylor's Revolutionary V-Class Bracing
A true Taylor innovation, Bob Taylor and master craftsman Andy Powers over in El Cajon, California decided it was time to update the bracing of their high-end acoustics. Toeing the delicate line of flexibility and stability, Taylor's revolutionary V-Class bracing system increases sustain and volume by focusing the guitar's vibrations. This allows the top to flex in the ways it needs to achieve powerful volume, while maintaining stiffness in the middle of the guitar for excellent sustain. The outcome is revolutionary sound quality. Not to mention, this world-class, exclusive bracing system allows for superior intonation.

Groundbreaking ES2 Electronics
The 314e also features another Taylor innovation, this time in electronics. The Expression System 2 was designed and built by Taylor specifically to capture all the beautiful acoustic sound their guitars put out. Situated behind the saddle, this pickup boasts three uniquely positioned sensors to apprehend a dynamic range of sound like never before.  You can tweak this sonic luxury via the ES2 preamp, with onboard volume, treble, and bass controls.
