Taylor 314ce V-Class 300 Series Electro-Acoustic

2018 Model, Grand Auditorium-Sized


The 314ce is one of our best-selling Taylor guitars, demonstrating its popularity among professionals and bedroom players alike. It's a fine acoustic instrument that's earned its reputation as a high-quality workhorse.

V Class bracing

Developed by master guitar designer Andy Powers, V Class bracing is the new innovative internal framework brought into all Taylor USA-made models. The switch from 100 years of X bracing to V changes the way the acoustic top wood vibrates, increasing volume and sustain. The wood is kept rigid through the middle of the guitar in the direction of the strings for more resonance while the sides of the top remain flexible for greater volume. An added benefit of V bracing is better intonation so notes and chords played anywhere on the neck are more consistently in tune with one another.   

Raw beauty

Like all Taylor instruments, the 314ce is a good looking guitar, with its deep and curvy shape and a beautiful bright Sitka Spuce top. New for 2018 are the Italian acrylic fretboard inlays in the shape of gemstones, which add some flair to the stripped back design.

When you pick up any Taylor, the first thing you notice is how comfortable the Mahogany neck feels and the ease of playing it provides. Meanwhile, the Grand Auditorium body shape is comfortable for either fingerpicking or flat picking styles of play. The 314ce has a well balanced modern acoustic sound, and the Sapele back and sides give it a good tonal brightness.

Expression System 2

The 314ce was already an incredible guitar that delivered a focused sound that can be used across most playing styles. Though as technology grows sometimes guitars need reinvigorating. So Taylor made sure that the 314ce is up to date with all of the latest trimmings, including their Expression System 2 pickup and preamp. This new pickup design improves volume output and frequency response so you get a better sound live that can easily be run through a PA with no worries about volume.

What makes this system so special is the behind the saddle pickup design which means it responds more to your playing. You will hear nuances and frequencies that were just not picked up by your old guitars under saddle piezo pickup system.
