Overview

The Taylor 514e combines the versatility of their Grand Auditorium body shape with the strong midrange focus of a Mahogany body to deliver an extremely playable electro acoustic, with stage-ready ES2 Expression Electronics upgraded for 2016. The 514e has become a favourite with singer-songwriters and light-to-medium strummers for its blend of warmth and compression, and the latest incarnation of the 500 series further improves it's on-stage sound and natural acoustic tone and aesthetic.

A cedar top imparts extra warmth to complement the vintage voice of Mahogany, and slightly lowers the overall volume ceiling compared to a denser spruce or mahogany top. This makes it ideal for fingerpickers with a lighter touch and light strummers, but if you're still developing your playing style and technique, the versatility of the Grand Auditorium body offers the perfect foundation for you to do so.

The neo-vintage appointment package includes an grained ivoroid rosette, grained ivoroid binding, and a Century fretboard inlay. Taylor employ ebony fingerboards on all of their new models, which complements their meticulous development and design on their patented NT-Neck system, for unrivalled playability and fretting ability.

In addition, Taylor's ES2 Expression system electronics further improve the on-stage and studio sound of the 514e, offering up to 25% more gain on the pre-amp, and a unique behind-the-saddle pickup which features three uniquely positioned and individually calibrated pickup sensors. These sensors are specifically placed on the body depending on the shape, and are designed to emphasise the natural acoustic voice of the guitar into your electronic tone.

The wide frequency response and strong mid-range fundamentals of Mahogany, combined with the GA body, make the Taylor 514e a superb all-rounder for your next electro acoustic choice, with Taylor's trademark attention to detail, aesthetic touches and craftsmanship that set the 500 series a league above the competition.

A GREAT PLACE TO BUY YOUR KIT AND GET ADVICE
An Aladdins cave of product and experience. We are buying some Yamaha kit from there and the staff could not be more helpful. If you are in the market for new kit then their Birmingham showroom is well worth a visit.
