Overview

For many guitar players, Indian rosewood is what it's all about. The Taylor 714 Rosewood/Spruce Grand Auditorium Acoustic Guitar offers the classic tonewood pairing of rosewood and spruce and conjure a rootsy Americana vibe. Standard appointments include a warm Vintage Sunburst top, ivoroid binding and rosette, along with ivoroid Heritage fretboard inlays, all of which bridge the past with the present.

Indian Rosewood
One of the most popular and traditional guitar woods of all time, rosewood takes the basic sonic thumbprint of mahogany (which has a strong midrange) and expands it in both directions. Rosewood sounds deeper in the low end and brighter on the top end (one might describe the treble notes as zesty, sparkly or sizzly, with more articulation). If you look at its frequency range visually, rosewood would appear to be more scooped in the middle, yielding less midrange bloom than mahogany. Like mahogany, rosewood's vintage heritage has helped firmly establish its acoustic legacy. It's a great sound in part because we know that sound. In some music circles in which preserving the traditional sound helps bring a sense of authenticity to the music - certain strains of Americana, for example - rosewood has an iconic status. Also, like mahogany, rosewood is a versatile tonewood, which has contributed to its popularity. One can fingerpick it, strum it and flatpick it. It's very consistent, so players can usually rely on it to deliver.

Grand Auditorium (GA)
The GA is Taylor's most versatile and popular shape, excelling at light-touch fingerstyle to full-blown strumming. Great for miking and recording, the GA's balanced mid-range and bright tone exemplify the Taylor voice.

Gloss
The finish used to create this guitar's lustrous gloss top, back, and sides was developed at Taylor for maximum durability and resistance to cold-checking. This ultraviolet-cured finish is also more environmentally friendly than traditional lacquer finishes.

Taylor 716ce

By Cliff Rhodenizer

from Roswell, GA

I have the big brother to this one, the 716ce. Same materials, just a bigger body (Grand Symphony) with cut away and the ES system electronics. The sound is similar, but with a little more bottom end. It really comes to life when you get down on it. Both are well made and good quality. I thought it sounded good in the store, but when they put new strings on it for me I got goosebumps when I played it. Stick with the same gauge strings in an 80/20 and you will be happy with it.

Highly recommended

By Hoyoung Lee

from Los Angeles, CA

You can never go wrong with taylor guitar. The body is extremely resonant and craft quality is simply the best. Great for pop, rock, especially excellent for worship music. If you wanna go with more vintage sound, this one might not the best choice, but II highly recommend this guitar to anyone who's seriously looking for a high-end acoustic guitar.
