Serving as a premium quality instrument for the recording guitarist or live performer, the 2014 Taylor 914CE features trademark Taylor craftsmanship, detail-rich appointments and premium tonewoods that set this apart from the standard series.
The graded Indian Rosewood has been hand-selected for the 914ce 2014, which guarantees a more consistent grained finish, with plenty of variegation for that added stage presence.
The combination of a Grand Auditorium body and Rosewood / Spruce woods make for a rich, harmonic mix of tones great for most applications with a balanced blend of warmth, clarity and sustain. A slightly defined mid-range presence makes it well suited to a wide array of playing styles. The 900 series also employ Taylor's most articulate bracing option, CV Bracing, which incorporates the relief rout and additional refinements, including subtle contouring differences in the scalloping. In general, guitars with CV bracing sound fuller and fatter without giving up articulation. They are also slightly louder.
The refreshed appointment scheme boasts a beautifully calibrated balance of Indian Rosewood binding and red koa purfling accents, together with colourful abalone shell inlays and trim that borders the fretboard extension. Optimised wood thicknesses, ultra-thin gloss finishing with protein glues (that enhance the tonal transfer) all combine to give the 914CE the sound and feel of a really special guitar. The limited edition 2014 model shows off its beauty with a special edition 'Cindy' inlay, reminiscent to their 'vine' inlays found on other premium and deluxe series models.
Taylor's upgraded Expression System 2 electronics represent a revolutionary step forward in pickup design for Electro Acoustic guitars. An upgraded preamp adds up to 25% more gain to your signal, whilst a patented behind-the-saddle pickup (which features three uniquely positioned and individually calibrated pickup sensors), enables a more dynamic range of acoustic sound to be captured than ever before.
The Taylor 914CE 2014 ships in a Taylor deluxe hardshell case for added protection.
