The Taylor 514ce V-Class Electro Acoustic Guitar in Brown Stain embraces an intoxicating tonewood partnership that combines power and subtlety to perfection. Not only that, but this 514ce is endowed with Taylor's V-Class bracing pattern, which improves its sonic potential to create a covetous guitar for gigging and recording with. Each model is supplied with a Taylor Deluxe hardshell case to keep it in pristine condition, wherever your music takes you.
Elegant Grand Auditorium body
The 514ce adheres to Taylor's highly prized Grand Auditorium body shape, which is favoured by many due to its comfortable playing feel and impressive output. Built using tropical mahogany for the back and sides, the 514ce generates a gutsy midrange energy that doesn't hold back. Paired with this is a Western Red Cedar top, which offers a more nuanced and delicate output than that of spruce. If you play fingerstyle then you'll love the articulate notes issued by cedar. Strummers will appreciate the tempered projection that retains mids with sparkling clarity. Finished in a medium brown stain, this beauty looks just as good as it sounds. With that in mind, a protective application of gloss allows the woods to age gracefully.
V-Class bracing pattern
Taylor's revolutionary V-Class bracing pattern increases soundboard flexibility and stiffness in equal measure. The result is improved resonance, which is allows the soundboard to generate greater projection for increased efficiency and dynamics. Secondly, thanks to the stiffer properties, the spruce preserves string motion for improved sustain so that notes ring out for longer. Finally, the V-Class bracing pattern affords masterful intonation. Therefore, whether you're fretting a chord near the nut or closer to the bridge, each note retains perfect pitch.
Tropical mahogany neck
Joined to the body is a stable and reliable tropical mahogany neck, which is afforded a shapely profile that sits sweetly in the hand. A delicate yet resilient layer of satin ensures that you can glide along the neck unimpeded by stickiness or tackiness. Married to the neck is a glorious ebony fingerboard, which features century position inlays to guide your way in style. The Venetian cutaway removes any obstacles between your hand and the upper frets, giving you total freedom to explore the neck in its entirety.
Taylor's Expression System 2
The 514ce electro-acoustic is equipped with Taylor's proprietary Expression System 2 (ES2) electronic setup, which translates the rich timbre of the guitar via a uniquely designed behind-the-saddle pickup and custom-designed "professional-audio"-grade preamp. From the bellowing depths to the searing highs, the delicate intricacies of each note are captured and translated impeccably. Thanks to the intuitive control layout, you can deftly sculpt your output to suit your playing style and performance environment.
The Taylor 514ce V-Class Electro Acoustic Guitar is home to Taylor nickel tuning machines, which ensure that each string stays firmly in tune throughout the most enthusiastic of performances. The Tusq nut and micarta saddle play their part in upholding intonation and sustain, whilst fine finishing touches including the grained ivoroid/tortoise/grained ivoroid rosette elegantly complements the finish.
