The Taylor 414CE is one of the industry standard acoustic guitars. It is the perfect blend of beauty, sound and affordability and with Ovangkol back and sides and a Sitka Spruce top, you've got a guitar that simply sings!
The New Stuff
The 414ce 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 an update. It's got V-Bracing which is a new bracing system which allows tonewoods to produce more volume, longer sustain and stronger projection.
Taylor have made sure that the 414ce is as up to date with all of the latest trimmings including their Expression 2 System 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.
That is not all they changed though. The 414ce now features an all gloss finish that feels great in the hands and makes it extremely easy to play. This change doesn't just change how it plays but how it looks. The gloss finish will look amazing when you are on stage and to make it look even better you also get a set of small pearl dot inlays which are subtle but beautiful.
The Classic 414
With a comfortably shaped Grand auditorium body carved with a venetian cutaway, this electro acoustic from Taylor offers a modern balanced sound with plenty of clarity and detail, plugged in or acoustic. The Taylor 414CE is constructed of Ovangkol back and sides with a solid spruce top and ebony fingerboard.
These proven tone woods combine to produce an extremely natural sound that has a particular midrange focus. This midrange focus keeps you in the mix and makes sure you are audible even in large band environments.
