$1,300 with Case + tax

Taylor's 414ce acoustic-electric guitar embodies a superb blend of classic tonewoods and modern electronics. With it, you get a gorgeous solid Sitka spruce top with ovangkol as its back and sides - ensuring excellent tone when unplugged. Yet, Taylor also added the Fishman Prefix electronics system, which makes the Taylor 414ce guitar ripe for stage use, as well. And, whether you favor strum-style playing or fingerpicking you'll be equally delighted, as it features the treble-emphasized Grand Auditorium body style, which gives you excellent note definition, with the Taylor 414ce.

 

Choice tonewoods - Sitka spruce meets Ovangkol

When you pick up a Taylor, you can expect outstanding tone - and one of the leading reasons behind that signature Taylor voice is the use of high-quality tonewoods. This particular Taylor, the 414ce, is a prime example of just that. It features time-proven Sitka spruce as its top - which gives you projection - while its body comprises Ovangkol. Ovangkol is an African tonewood with a striking olive-brown coloration and intensely varied grain. It offers a response somewhat similar to the warmth of rosewood - but gives the 414ce a voice all its own. The Taylor 414ce also features an all-gloss finish and a Tropical American mahogany neck, which is lined with a smooth-playing ebony fingerboard.

 

Grand Auditorium body style, for exceptional treble zing

Taylor's beloved Grand Auditorium body style, featured on the 414ce, employs the width and depth of the Dreadnought. But, its waist is narrower, which gives Grand-Auditorium-bodied acoustic guitars a sleeker look, with more treble zing. The body style also helps to sharpen the definition of each note. Ultimately, from fingerpicking to medium strumming, the Grand Auditorium is a great choice for nearly every playing style.
