Upgraded with Rosewood back and sides, the 414CE-R has all the rich, full bodied depth players have come to expect. The popular cutaway Grand Auditorium body entices players of all styles with an array of sonic delights, starting with the classic wood pairing of solid rosewood and Sitka spruce. The guitar is now powered by our 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.
