A premium upgrade to Taylor’s popular Grand Auditorium ovangkol/spruce 414ce substitutes much rarer Engelmann spruce in place of Sitka. Engelmann’s appealing tonal properties yield a mature, played-in sound right out of the case, with a slightly richer midrange than Sitka. Together with the rosewood-like tonal range of ovangkol and Taylor’s Performance bracing, players will love the overall volume, warmth and sustain, with signature Taylor balance and clarity across the entire tonal spectrum. A shaded edgeburst adds another unique touch, wrapping the entire body in warm, neo-vintage character. Other featured details include Italian acrylic dot fretboard inlays, white binding, a full-gloss body, Taylor nickel tuners, a Venetian cutaway, and Taylor’s Expression System® 2 electronics. The guitar features a Special Edition label inside the guitar and ships with a Taylor deluxxe case.
