For 50 years, Taylor Guitars has been pushing the boundaries of acoustic guitar craftsmanship and design. The Taylor 614ce limited-edition 50th Anniversary Grand Auditorium embodies their spirit of innovation through premium tonewoods, performance-enhancing bracing and appointments as striking to behold as to play. Whether playing solo or with a group, this premium Grand Auditorium will inspire your musical creativity.

Taylor 614ce Limited Edition 50th Anniversary Grand Auditorium Body

Figured Maple and Sitka Spruce Body

The 50th Anniversary 614ce's back and sides are crafted from figured big leaf maple, a tonewood prized for its clarity and note separation. Through Taylor's voicing process, the maple has been tuned to produce greater warmth, complexity and sustain. Complementing the maple back and sides, a Sitka spruce top provides the 614ce with a crisp, balanced acoustic character. Sitka spruce is a preferred top wood for its ability to translate string vibration into a broad dynamic range. With light fingerpicking, the top delivers a clear, airy tone. Strummed more assertively, it produces fuller lows and sparkling highs.

Taylor 614ce Limited Edition 50th Anniversary Grand Auditorium V-Class Bracing

V-Class Bracing for Powerful Projection

Taylor's patented V-Class bracing helps the 614ce achieve a powerful, sustained acoustic resonance. Strategically positioned braces beneath the soundboard translate string energy into acoustic sound with minimal dampening. The innovative bracing design provides structural support, while allowing the top to freely vibrate, resulting in greater volume, longer sustain and a more complex tone. When playing solo or in a group, this 614ce cuts through with ease thanks to its robust, harmonically rich voice.

The Taylor Standard Profile neck shape feels natural and comfortable in your hand, while the ebony fingerboard enhances clarity and sustain. 20 frets are carefully leveled and polished for an effortless glide along the fingerboard, while gold-on-gold tuners hold your tuning steady.

Taylor 614ce Limited Edition 50th Anniversary Grand Auditorium ES2 Electronics
