Aboard the neck is a 20-fret ebony fingerboard decorated with heritage diamond inlays to guide you along. The single Venetian cutaway in the body of the guitar allows you to reach the upper frets with comfort and ease. The grained ivoroid binding complements the dark wooden neck and feels sleek in your hand.
EXPRESSION 2 SYSTEM ELECTRONICS
The Taylor 714CE guitar is fitted with innovative onboard Expression 2 System electronics, allowing you to plug into an amp and play with plenty of volume. The focal feature of the Expression 2 System electronics is the patented behind-the-saddle design. Three piezo sensors are uniquely placed under the saddle at the bridge, which captures more acoustic tone and consequently delivers a true Taylor sound.
The Expression System 2 has an easy-to-use interface, with controls for the Tone and Volume, while its gain structure makes it ideal for both the stage and studio.
HARDWARE AND FINISH
The Taylor 714CE has an ebony bridge with a tusq nut and micarta saddle, which maintains a strong connection between the body and the strings for optimum sustain.
A tortoise pickguard complements the rich Sunburst finish while also protecting the soundboard against scratches.
A Taylor Deluxe Hardshell case is included with the 714CE to protect it against damage for years to come, so you can carry it away with confidence. The Taylor 714CE is an outstanding electro acoustic guitar which is designed to deliver the best acoustic sound with ultimate playability.
