Product Description

Designed with Taylor's signature shape for the ultimate all-purpose acoustic is the Taylor 414CE Grand Auditorium Acoustic Electric Guitar with Case. The 414CE features solid African ovangkol's responsive, rosewood-like tone, which pairs well with Sitka spruce and can accommodate a range of playing styles. White binding applies a crisp counterpoint against the gloss top and mottled brown hues of ovangkol. The Expression System wires the Taylor 414CE for high-fidelity amplified acoustic sound while the grand auditorium design supports a variety of styles for both strumming and fingerstyle playing.

Quality
Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable?
Fantastic Quality! It's a Taylor. Taylor = Quality and Playability. This beautiful guitar has a Sitka Spruce Top and Ovangkol Body. These are highly desirable woods and match well together. In fact, Ovangkol is actually a rosewood relative. Therefore, this guitar express similar tonality of a Rosewood model. I use to own a Taylor 814ce that was sold in order to make a necessary upgrade in my commercial studio. I do regret it and have for sometime. It had a Sitka Spruce Top and Indian Rosewood body. However, once I had the opportunity to take advantage of American Musical's multiple payment plan, I no longer have that deep regret for the loss of my 814ce. This 414ce model does a very good job at replacing that longing desire.
Reliability

The reliability of a Taylor is simply impeccable. It stays in tune extremely well and always delivers as promised. In addition to being a Taylor owner, you also have Taylor benefits. The Taylor Guitar Company takes great pride with educating their customers in the care and steps needed to maintain a quality guitar. Their website is filled with educational material and information. If your Taylor ever sees an unfortunate environmental change, Taylor will be there for the rescue. They offer many affordable refresh and upgrade options to help restore health to your beloved guitar. They have your back!
General
Your general opinion of this product.
Five Stars Given for a Five Star Guitar.
Playability and Feel
How does it feel, Heavy, Fast, Chunky? How was the neck? Are the controls easy to get to while playing?
The playability is simply amazing. This guitar has an impeccable ability to fit extremely well in the hands of a guitar player. The weight feels evenly distributed and is not heavy at all. The weight actually feels perfect. In fact, I really don't ever recall thinking this guitar is too light or too heavy. The neck is what this guitar is about. If you have never owned a Taylor, this is the area that you will notice the biggest difference in. This difference is a very positive one. The Taylor Guitar Company is actually obsessed with necks and you can tell. Their necks are extremely unique, easy to play, maintain incredible consistency, and simply fit in a player's hand, "Like A Glove." Additionally, The electronics are very easy to access and control.
Tone
Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin?
The biggest difference between the Taylor 814ce, that I owned, and the 414ce is the tone. The tone of this particular 414ce is actually quite bright, but consistent. Tone is a personal preference. I personally preferred the tone of the 814ce a little more, due to its overall balance in the frequency spectrum. HOWEVER, I am NOT complaining at all. This is a small preference. The tone on the 414ce is still impeccable, compared to most guitars out there with a similar tone. In fact, if you are looking for a very consistent, bright, and detailed tone; this is the guitar for you. It is definitely the king for this kind of tonality. You can hear every note with great detail and balance. Bright and Detailed. This style of tonality is especially good for fingerpicking and soloing. Particular styles that would fit well include: -Bluegrass (Fast Detailed Picking) -Country -Pop -Rock -Smooth Jazz (Finger based work and "Snappy Popping")
Finish
How did the stain or paint job look?
Very Attractive and "Taylor" Like! Top Finish - Gloss Back Side Finish - Satin Neck Finish - Satin
Action
How was the action out of the box?
The action was impeccable out of the box. I usually have all of my guitars professionally set-up after purchase. However, I have not done so with this guitar. In fact, the action was perfect from the start. Smooth and Fast. The intonation of the guitar was also impeccable for a "Shipped" guitar. In fact, it was also perfect. Unlike actual music stores where people can play/demo the guitar, this arrived as Taylor intended it to. This is rare, unless you order direct or online. Otherwise, guitars tend to somewhat be altered in stores. Therefore, possibly requiring new strings, professional set-up, etc.
