All-Solid Wood Construction For Organic Acoustic Tone

Taylor crafted the 314ce with an all-solid wood body, giving it a rich, resonant acoustic voice. The solid Sitka spruce top provides crisp articulation with complex overtones in the highs and balanced midrange punch. The sapele back and sides have a focused low end as well as warm, musical overtones. Together, these tone woods yield a clear, balanced acoustic tone. The V-Class bracing optimizes the top's vibration for more volume, longer sustain and rich harmonic content. Whether you're fingerpicking or strumming, the 314ce's organic solid-wood construction rewards you with exceptional acoustic tone.

Sleek Grand Auditorium Body For Versatile Response

The 314ce's Grand Auditorium shape provides a versatile tonal response perfect for all styles of playing. Its slim waist lets the guitar resonate freely, resulting in a robust voice. The rounded lower bout adds tonal bloom to your bass notes, while the tapered shoulders enable clear, balanced treble notes. The compact body style also makes the 314ce comfortable to hold and play whether seated or standing. You get dynamic range in response to both aggressive strumming and delicate fingerpicking.
