A classic tonewoods combination - Sitka spruce and Indian rosewood

Nothing beats the sound of real rosewood topped with spruce - and that's exactly what you get with the Taylor 914ce. It features a beautiful Sitka spruce top, which gives you wonderful projection and the perfect amount of sparkle. Add to that the balanced tone and astonishing projection of the 914ce's Indian rosewood back and sides, and you have a guitar with timeless tone. Apart from its beautiful tone, you'll notice the 914ce's intricate abalone inlays and rosette add a touch of flash to the guitar.

A richer, more vibrant voice than ever before thanks to customized bracing

You'll notice that the Taylor 914ce boasts exceptionally vibrant tones with a unique character. Taylor went back to the drawing board and redesigned their bracing patterns, to get the optimum response out of each of their iconic body shapes. Taylor even added side bracing to add rigidity to the sides and enhance top and back movement. In the words of luthier Andy Powers, the updated Advanced Performance bracing pattern gives the updated 914ce a "nice, cushy swell and long sustain, even with a delicate touch."

Grand Auditorium body style gives you exceptional presence

Taylor's beloved Grand Auditorium body style, featured on the 914ce, employs the width and depth of the Dreadnought. But, its waist is narrower, which gives Grand Auditorium bodied acoustic guitars a sleeker look, with more treble zing. The 914ce's Grand Auditorium body style also helps to sharpen the definition of each note. Ultimately, from fingerpicking to medium strumming, the Grand Auditorium is a great body choice for nearly every playing style. At Sweetwater we love expressive and toneful acoustic guitars, and the Taylor 914ce acoustic-electric definitely fits that bill.

Cutting-edge Taylor Expression System 2 electronics

If you play plugged in, then you're going to love the Taylor Expression System 2 (ES2) electronics built into your 914ce. The key to this fantastic system is the 3-section proprietary pickup located behind the saddle. Because of where it's positioned and how it's integrated into the 914ce's saddle, the ES2 pickup provides you with remarkably clear and accurate sound. In addition to a master volume control, a pair of tone controls let you tweak your highs and lows to get the sound you need, and a discreet phase switch offers vital onboard feedback suppression.
