A Luxurious Benchmark from Taylor: The 914ce
The Taylor 914ce is the sheer definition of what a "Top Shelf" acoustic guitar should be, and then some. Boasting beauty and design both internally and externally, the 914ce pushes the emvelope of quality, tone, playability, and design, giving the player a one-of-a-kind playing experience. At the core, the 914ce is built around the heart of the classic Grand Autitorium body shape, which is enhanced by a solid Sitka Spruce top and solid East Indian Rosewood back and sides. This classic tone wood pairing combined with the Grand Auditorium body shape, is going to yield a very nice balanced and full range tone. Rosewood is known for enhanced Bass and Treble response, with a nice smoothed out Midrange, giving us a big and clear sound. Plenty of nice bottom end, with outstanding detail on the top end. The Grand Auditorium body is often referred to as Taylor's "Swiss Army Guitar" because it's so great at being a big strummer, and a soft finger picker. The 914ce can take you just about anywhere you want to go tonally. In STYLE!
V Class Bracing for enhanced tone and sustain:
The internal bracing of the acoustic guitar has so much to do with seasoning the sound and response of the instrument, and Taylor will stop at nothing to keep improving this recipe. Master Builder and Designer Andy Powers came up with this new V-Class bracing to make the absolute most of providing stiffness parallel to the strings, while remaining flexible on either side, to allow for the adequate amount of air to be moved to really project. Players also notice better sustain, and intonation up the neck.
Keep it sounding natural with ES-2 Electronics
Expression System 2 was designed to do one thing. Make your guitar sound like your guitar when it's plugged in. Nothing more, nothing less. Three strategically placed Piezos are mounted right behind there saddle, giving you immediate access to be able to balance the pickup to your taste. Each Piezo has a little Allen Screw that you can literally adjust on the fly to get your guitar sounding exactly how you want it to. Combine those features with Taylor's amazing preamp, and you've got one of the most revered electronics systems in the acoustic guitar game!
