The Taylor 414ce-R Acoustic-Electric Guitar is built with solid Rosewood back and sides for a harmonically rich, warm-sounding acoustic guitar. The Grand Auditorium Body Size really is a jack of all trades. It sounds great whether finger picked, flat picked, strummed, or arpeggiated, this is an instrument that produces a very pleasing sound!
This popular cutaway Grand Auditorium entices players of all styles with an array of sonic delights, starting with the classic wood pairing of solid rosewood and Sitka spruce. This delectable pairing gives us rich warmth on the bass-side, bell-like high-end chime on the treble side, and a slightly scooped mid-range, for an ultra-musical EQ sweep that is exceptionally friendly to the ear.
The guitar is now powered by Taylor's award-winning V-Class internal bracing, which not only enhances the voicing with more volume, sustain, and projection, but also improves the intonation along the entire fretboard, yielding greater clarity, consistency, and harmonic agreement between notes.
As a result, rosewood’s full-spectrum voice, featuring rich overtones, takes on an even more pleasing high-fidelity sound that translates into a more expressive response. It makes a fantastic guitar for virtually any application.
The appointments strike a tasteful balance between style and restraint, featuring white binding, Renaissance fretboard/peghead inlays in Italian acrylic, and a full-gloss body. The guitar ships with Taylor ES2 electronics in a deluxe hardshell case.
