Taylor 2023 314ce Grand Auditorium, Sitka/Sapele with Hard Shell Case

Taylor 2023 314ce Grand Auditorium: A Versatile Acoustic Marvel

The Taylor 314ce Grand Auditorium represents the pinnacle of versatile acoustic guitar design, suitable for a myriad of musical settings from the practice room to the recording studio and live performance. The 2023 edition of this esteemed model integrates Taylor's revolutionary V-Class bracing, enhancing the guitar's ability to produce more harmonious and sustained tones while addressing intonation inconsistencies—a common challenge for acoustic guitarists.

Superior Sound and Build Quality

At the heart of the 314ce's superior sound lies its solid Sitka spruce top and solid Sapele back and sides, a combination that delivers a rich spectrum of audible delight. This tonewood pairing offers a crisp articulation in the top-end with robust midrange fullness and warm, resonant bass. The result is a balanced acoustic voice that can adeptly handle both aggressive strumming and delicate fingerpicking.

Elegant Appointments and Functional Design

The Taylor 314ce is as aesthetically pleasing as it is musically effective. It features sleek black binding, Gemstone fretboard and peghead inlays made from Italian acrylic, and a professional-grade satin finish on the back and sides coupled with a gloss top. The Venetian cutaway not only adds to the visual allure but also provides enhanced accessibility to the upper frets, facilitating a seamless playability across all registers.

Advanced Electronics and Playability Features

Equipped with Taylor’s proprietary ES2 electronics, the 314ce delivers an amplified sound that faithfully captures its natural acoustic resonance. This system ensures that the guitar's true voice—complemented by the V-Class bracing’s tonal improvements—is projected clearly and consistently in any amplified setting. Additionally, the guitar's user-friendly features, such as the Taylor Nickel tuners and a comfortable neck profile, ensure that every performance is as smooth as it is compelling.
