This First Edition Cutaway Grand Auditorium marks the debut of Taylors revoiced maple 600 Series, featuring a package of tone-enhancing refinements that transform maples historically bright tone profile into a richer, warmer and more complex voice.
Among the design nuances are Adirondack spruce Advanced Performance bracing, which features a maple-specific back bracing profile that enhances the guitars responsiveness; the use of protein glues to optimize the tonal transfer between key wood components; and a thin, 3.5-mil gloss finish to minimize dampening.
A hand-rubbed œBrown Sugar color treatment on the back and sides gives maples striking figure a burnished copper glow without adding extra thickness to the finish. The Sitka spruce top is specially seasoned using torrefaction, a roasting process that helps produce an aged tonal character marked by greater acoustic resonance and responsiveness.
Featured appointments include ivoroid Wings fretboard inlays; an inlaid ebony backstrap; and an additional headstock inlay on this First Edition model.
Other standout details include ebony binding with ivoroid body purfling; an ebony rosette edged in ivoroid; a striped ebony pickguard; Taylor nickel tuners; and Taylors Expression System 2 acoustic electronics. The guitar includes a First Edition label and a deluxe hardshell case with a commemorative First Edition nameplate.

Comments about Taylor 614ce First Edition Cutaway Grand Auditorium Acoustic-Electric Guitar:
I just picked mine up from GC and as usual was a great customer service experience!!! Ok now for the guitar itself...UNFREAKIN BELIEVABLE!!!! It was more beautiful than i was expecting...and I was expecting quite a bit!!! This guitar will end my obsession for the "PERFECT" guitar!! The guitar is just a work of art! The back and sides are a little darker than the picture shows...but i also saw other pictures on line and thought it would actually be darker than it is! The colors are just awesome, back, sides and top just gorgeous! Couldnt be any happier with the aesthetics of this WORK OF ART! Now the playability and tone...the thing plays with such smoothness that i just cant imagine a guitar playing any easier. The tone is so rich and full that i had to double check that it was actually a 600 maple series!!! It doesnt look like a typical maple guitar, it doesnt sound like a typical maple guitar (though i like the sound of maple) In fact its like no other guitar ive ever played or seen...it truly is a one of a kind and a collectors piece for sure! I am so blessed that i actually landed one of these that im not sure if GC will ever even see me again!! Get one you will be BLESSED as well...but hurry only a limited # from what i hear!!
