Taylor’s Signature Guitar Shape
Taylor’s own guitar body shape, the Grand Auditorium, is hugely popular, mostly because of its size.
Sized somewhere between a Dreadnought and a Grand Concert, Taylor Grand Auditorium guitars give you the best of both worlds.
With great sound across the spectrum and being ideal for picking and strumming, the Taylor 314ce Grand Auditorium is extremely versatile, a real all-purpose acoustic guitar.
Crafting the Taylor 314ce
For the V-Class 31ce’s top, Taylor have opted for Sitka Spruce. Strong yet flexible, Sitka Spruce is dynamic and delivers great tone and articulation and is one of the most popular tonewoods for acoustic guitars.
Sapele is used for the back and sides with its darker colouring striking a beautiful visual contrast with the lighter Sitka Spruce top.
Similar to Mahogany, Sapele delivers a consistent and balanced output across the tonal spectrum, enhancing the versatility of the Taylor 314ce.
New V-Class Bracing
Taylor recently unveiled their new, revolutionary bracing design known as V-Class Bracing. This new style of bracing drastically changes the way the guitar’s top resonates for beautifully enhanced sound.
A massive departure from traditional X-bracing, V-Class bracing produces notes that are louder, more in tune with each other and with greater sustain.
Using V-Class bracing, the guitar’s soundboard can be both incredibly stiff and flexible at the same time. As a result, you get increased volume and sustain while intonation is improved too!
Expression System 2 Electronics
Incorporating an innovative behind-the-saddle design, the Expression System 2 beautifully captures all the dynamic properties of the Taylor 314ce.
The patented pickup features three differently positioned sensors that have all been individually calibrated
Because of this, you can enjoy increased capture of the dynamic range from the guitar.
Combined with Taylor’s own custom-designed professional audio-grade preamp, you get beautiful sounding amplified tone and incredible response.
Whether you’re playing on stage through a PA, plugged into an acoustic amplifier or recording directly onto a computer; the Expression System 2 delivers the true voice of your new Taylor guitar.
Giving you a great playing experience is a Tropical Mahogany neck with a beautifully smooth satin finish.
Atop the neck, you’ll find an Ebony fretboard that provides you with a fantastic playing area with Gemstone, Italian acrylic inlays guiding the way.
A Venetian cutaway to the body of the Taylor 314ce allows for easy reach of the higher frets with its elegant curve adding to the fantastic aesthetic of the instrument.
There are also a few visual tells that denote the V-Class nature of this new edition of the Taylor 314ce. These included a black graphite nut and a new inlay on the headstock.
More importantly, the most impressive difference found in the V-Class Taylor 314ce is its beautifully improved sound.
