At the pinnacle of the Taylor line, the Presentation Series represents the finest craftsmanship, design innovation, and musicality that Taylor has to offer. This PS14ce is no exception—made with a sinker redwood top (sourced from logs submerged in California riverbeds) and solid Tasmanian blackwood back and sides, this Grand Auditorium’s rare tonewood combination produces a sound unlike any other acoustic guitar. Blackwood’s power and midrange focus make it a natural partner for redwood’s wide dynamic range and tonal warmth, and V-Class bracing adds volume and sustain that allow the natural qualities of these materials to bloom as notes resonate. To optimize the playing experience, we’ve outfitted this PS14ce with a radiused ebony armrest, while premium Gotoh 510 tuners provide a precise 21:1 gear ratio. Aesthetically, this model is adorned with ebony binding, a single-ring paua rosette, mother-of-pearl and paua fretboard inlays in our Nouveau pattern, and a glossy finish complemented with a shaded edgeburst treatment that brings out Tasmanian blackwood’s naturally stunning grain pattern. Built to shine in the studio, on stage, or at home, this is truly an heirloom-quality instrument worthy of generations of play. It ships with ES2 electronics in a deluxe hardshell case.
