Taylor V-Class Bracing
V-Class body bracing is a game changing development in Acoustic Guitar sound. This proprietary technology transforms the way an acoustic top vibrates and improves volume, sustain and tuning consistency - a bold departure away from traditional X-Braced designs.
Each V-Class Guitar features a distinctive black graphite nut (with a new formula for smoother tuning) and a new interior label, a design that features master designer Andy Powers’ signature for the first time.
- More Volume
Taylor's V-Class bracing controls the top’s flexibility, creating a more orderly rocking motion across both sides of the top. The controlled flexing movement produces greater volume.
- Longer Sustain
V-Class bracing maintains stiffness along the middle of the guitar, in the direction of the strings. That rigidity keeps the strings in motion, producing notes that resonate longer before fading out.
- Better Intonation
V-Class bracing makes the top more in tune with the vibrating strings. This eliminates much of the interference that causes some notes to waver and sound slightly out of tune. As a result, notes and chords played anywhere on the neck are more consistent and in tune with each other.

Crafting the Taylor 714ce
The Taylor 714ce is a grand auditorium style guitar, Taylor’s own signature shape, making it a wonderful, all-purpose acoustic guitar.
The top of the Taylor 714ce V-Class guitar is Lutz Spruce; a natural hybrid of Sitka and White Spruce with similar traits to Adirondack. This tone wood gives you powerful, rich tone with a lot of volume.
For the back and sides of the 714ce, Taylor have used Indian Rosewood. Traditional and very popular, Bob Taylor himself has said Indian Rosewood is among the greatest tonewoods ever.
With a size that places the 714ce somewhere between a Dreadnought guitar and a Grand Concert, this Grand Auditorium guitar delivers the best of both worlds with great sound across the spectrum while being perfectly suited to both picking and strumming.
Another great feature of the Taylor V-Class 714ce is the venetian cutaway found in the body of the guitar.
With its soft, round lines and sloping peak, the venetian cutaway provides an elegant aesthetic while allowing for easy reach of the higher frets.
Expression System 2 Electronics
Using a breakthrough behind-the-saddle design, the Expression System 2 beautifully captures the dynamic properties of the 714ce.
The revolutionary pickup design of the Taylor Expression System 2 delivers the latest in Taylor’s continuing innovation in the world of acoustic guitar amplification.
One secret to the ES2’s incredible performance is Taylor’s patented behind-the-saddle pickup which features three separately positioned and individually calibrated pickup sensors.
This unique placement and specific calibration allows for an increased capture of the dynamic range from the guitar.
Combined with Taylor’s own custom-designed professional audio-grade preamp, you get an exceptional amplified tone with 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 truly delivers the voice of your Taylor guitar.
New and Improved
With the amazing new V-Class bracing, Taylor have taken everything people love about the 714ce and taken it to the next level.
A few visual tells denote the V-Class nature of this new version of the 714ce, such as the black graphite nut, a new label signed by master guitar builder Andy Powers, and a new abalone inlay on the headstock but the most impressive difference is in the sound.
Of course, to protect your investment and newest addition to your guitar collection, the Taylor 714ce V-Class guitar comes complete with a Taylor deluxe hardshell case.
