Grand Auditorium body
Taylor's Grand Auditorium body shape is considered the ultimate all-rounder by many, due to its exceptional versatility. With a balanced frequency response, there is a generous low-end energy, a punchy midrange clout, and sparkling highs. Whether you play fingerstyle or prefer a pick, the Grand Auditorium is a little beauty that accommodates every performing style. Whether you're recording in the studio, taking to the stage, practising with friends, or busking on the streets, you can do anything and everything you wish with the 714ce.
The body back and sides are constructed using Indian rosewood, which creates a warm tonal foundation with a hearty midrange energy. The top is built from Lutz spruce, which is reinforced with performance bracing with relief rout. The bracing enables the soundboard to resonate freely to produce an enviable projection. You can rest assured that the subtle nuances of your performance will sing out beautifully.
Fitted to the body via a scarf joint is a supple yet supportive tropical mahogany neck. The neck has been treated to a satin finish to prevent unwanted stickiness or tackiness from impeding your movement along the neck. Paired with the neck is a luxurious ebony fingerboard, which is adorned with abalone reflection inlays to guide your way in style. Ebony binding ensures smooth transitions between each and every fret. The elegantly shaped Venetian cutaway makes it even easier to reach the upper frets.
Expression System 2 Electronics
Taylor's exclusive Expression System 2 pickup is fitted in the 714ce to give you unparalleled amplification. The ES2 pickup features three uniquely positioned and individually calibrated pickup sensors that faithfully transmit the natural tones of the 714ce through recording equipment or an amplifier. Taylor have patented this behind-the-saddle design and it is one which captures all the tone on offer from the 714ce.
The gloss body finish protects the western sunburst finish. Non-figured Koa binding trims the top, whilst a 2016 3-Ring rosette encircles the soundhole. The ebony bridge features ebony dot bridge pins that complement the striped tortoise pickguard. The headstock is fitted with Taylor nickel tuners, which uphold tuning integrity dutifully throughout each and every performance.
Taylor have ensured that you can keep your 714ce electro acoustic guitar remains well-protected and safely stored by including a deluxe hardshell case.
