Overview

The handsome limited edition 714ce-S-LTD Grand Auditorium showcases a back and sides of blackheart sassafras, whose dramatic color variegation makes each set of wood truly one-of-a-kind. The tone profile of sassafras blends the clarity and woodiness of mahogany with extra midrange and top-end overtones, while the Sitka spruce soundboard yields extra sonic headroom and fullness thanks to Adirondack spruce bracing. Together with our versatile Grand Auditorium body, this beauty will handle a diverse range of playing styles.

Unique details include a sharp Florentine cutaway and premium appointments: rosewood Capstone fretboard inlays outlined in mother-of-pearl, a rosewood/mother-of-pearl rosette, rosewood binding with curly maple top edge trim, a rosewood back strip, and Gotoh Gold tuners, with Taylor' award-winning Expression System 2 electronics for rich amplified tone. The model features a limited edition guitar label and ships in a Taylor deluxe hardshell case.

Sitka Spruce
The most commonly used wood for guitar tops, Sitka generates a broad dynamic range and accommodates numerous playing styles, from aggressive strumming to fingerpicking.|

Blackheart Sassafras
Blackheart sassafras is an exotically beautiful variation on the more common sassafras tree that' native to Tasmania. The œblackheart distinction refers to dark, dramatic striping in the otherwise blond-colored wood, which is caused by fungi that form in the heartwood of the tree. Its tonal properties give it a truly unique sonic personality compared to other tonewoods. It blends some of the dry, woody response of walnut or mahogany; the note separation and focus of maple or myrtle; and the top-end overtones of rosewood.

Grand Auditorium
The most versatile and popular of Taylor' guitar shapes. Its well-defined midrange contributes to a clear and balanced tone. It' responsive enough for fingerstyle players and powerful enough for pickers and strummers to get a lively response. Think of it as a jack of all trades.

Expression System 2
Taylor' breakthrough acoustic pickup marks a major advance in piezo technology thanks to a patented behind-the-saddle design. The unique placement of three piezo sensors captures a more dynamic range of acoustic sound and responds well in a variety of settings.
