Original Hard Shell Case
The playability and sound is legendary, the Taylor experience has inspired generations of players! Acoustic players all over the love the Taylor Grand Auditorium guitars like the 314ce. This guitar's comfortable narrow waist, rich full range of sounds, sharp definition, and sleek look make it an excellent intermediate option for fingerpickers and singer/songwriters who depend on a good-sounding, good-playing instrument.
This much loved pre-owned guitar has a few dings that are photographed for your inspection, really hard to see because they are so small and insignificant, but full disclosure is our thing. Another cool thing is the guitar has all the case candy it came with, again shown in the photos.
The Taylor 314ce has excellent top-end response and a natural, direct tone. The 314ce's sapele back and sides have a warm, full body, with a bell-like sparkle and broad dynamic range thanks to a Sitka spruce top. There are some technical bits that are important so lets hear from the technical cats:
You get Taylor's revolutionary V-Class bracing, which boosts volume evenly across the tonal spectrum, increases sustain, and improves the natural intonation of the instrument by creating a more synergistic response from the soundboard. The 314ce's ES2 electronics provide convenient and natural-sounding amplification for the stage and studio with tone and volume controls to help you shape your sound.
Bracing is the internal framework of an acoustic guitar that helps shape its sound. Although X-bracing has been standard in acoustic guitars for over a century, it creates an innate conflict between two key elements of a guitar's sound: volume and sustain. The guitar's top (its soundboard) contributes to both. The flexibility of the top generates volume (projection), while its stiffness generates sustain. And with X-braced guitar tops, here's where the trade-off comes in: when something is made stiffer, its flexibility is reduced (and vice versa). V-Class bracing changes all that. With Taylor's V-Class bracing, an acoustic guitar top can be both stiff and flexible — for more volume and sustain. V-Class bracing provides stiffness parallel to the strings for more rigidity and hence sustain. Flexibility on either side generates the air movement necessary for robust projection. It's the best of both worlds. This groundbreaking innovation also improves intonation, not only producing notes that are louder and with longer sustain — but more in tune with each other. V-Class bracing boosts volume evenly across the tonal spectrum, increases sustain, and improves the natural intonation of the instrument by creating a more synergistic response from the soundboard. This fosters a more harmonious relationship between the notes you play, helping chords to ring out in cohesive splendor. Pick up a Taylor with V-Class bracing and experience it for yourself.
The main thing is the sound of the Taylor 314-ce is full of warm and fluid sounds that will inspire your playing, writing and singing, if you are prone to break into song. This guitar will have you smiling and, it’s a Taylor!
