Limited Edition E14CE Grand Auditorium Acoustic-Electric Guitar Sitka Spruce / Ebony
This is a very rare E Series model that Taylor kept secret. As of recently, they decided to release them, but, are only available at Taylor roadshow events.
The E14ce acoustic-electric Grand Auditorium boasts V-Class bracing, which functions as a new sonic engine for the guitar. Not only does it enhance the volume and sustain, it also changes the soundboard movement in a way that improves the guitar’s natural intonation, or “in-tuneness.” The result is more power in the upper register and more harmonic agreement between all fretted notes, which helps chord voicings sing like never before. The combination of Spruce and Ebony produces a rich, full sound with a strong bass fundamental and clear, bell-like treble.
Beautifully finished with Belle Fleur inlay design in the fretboard and headstock.
