New V-Class Bracing
New from Taylor is their ground-breaking new bracing design, known as V-Class bracing, which transforms the way the guitar's top vibrates and dramatically enhancing the sound.
Marking a huge 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 incredible stiff and flexible at the same time, and results in increased volume and sustain while also improving intonation.
Crafting the Taylor 714ce
A grand auditorium style guitar, Taylor’s own signature shape, the 714ce V-Class is a wonderful, all-purpose acoustic guitar.
Making 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 is 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.
The Taylor V-Class 714ce also features a beautifully shaped venetian cutaway 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.
