Product Description

The Taylor 314CE Grand Auditorium Acoustic Electric Guitar with Case looks as gorgeous as it sounds. The Taylor ES electronics will have you playing with confidence as it faithfully amplifies the warm sound of your guitar, and the 314CE’s grand auditorium design supports a variety of styles for both strumming and fingerstyle playing. Sapele shares mahogany’s lively tonal response and, together with a gloss-finish Sitka spruce top, rings out with a brightness and clarity that give these guitars an acoustic voice that is definitively Taylor. Black binding flanks sapele’s ribbon-like grain, with large pearl fretboard dots adding a traditional touch.

General
Your general opinion of this product.
For an entry level Taylor, it plays and sounds beautiful.
Quality
Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable?
I would say that this guitar is good overall quality and should hold up to whatever paces I will put it through.
Playability and Feel
How does it feel, Heavy, Fast, Chunky? How was the neck? Are the controls easy to get to while playing?
It feels very comfortable. No hard edges. Not too big, not too small. Neck is comfortable and smooth. The fretboard is very smooth and comfortable as well.
Tone
Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin?
I'm sure the strings it came with have a little to do with the overall sound. That being said, the sound was very balanced. Not too dark, not to bright. Plugging it into the pa is where this Taylor really shined. The bottom end was very punchy and pronounced. The top had just the right amount of brightness and chime. I was very pleased with the tone and the response to the changes I made in the eq setting.
Action
How was the action out of the box?
The action out of the box, was a little high for my taste, but I just did a quick truss rod adjustment and yielded the results I was looking for.
Finish
How did the stain or paint job look?
Clear was perfect. there was some light spots in the spruce top where the laminated pieces were joined. I suspect maybe a little adhesive stain. Noticeable but not hideous. I felt that it added a little character.
Reliability
How has it stood up over time?
Just purchased it so I can't share anything on the test of time.
