Delivering elegance and clean, dynamic response, the Taylor 514CE Grand Auditorium Acoustic Electric Guitar is a responsive fingerstyle powerhouse. Taylor’s V-Class™ bracing rollout continues with another wave of Grand Auditorium models. The patented bracing design is the equivalent of a new “sonic engine” that dramatically improves a guitar’s performance in three noticeable ways: more volume across the entire tonal spectrum, longer sustain, and more accurate intonation that puts notes more in tune with each other. Up and down the fretboard, the notes are more powerful and consistent, with greater harmonic agreement that enables chords to ring true without any sourness or beating.
All Taylor V-Class guitars are distinguished visually by two exclusive features: a black graphite nut and a new guitar label that features Andy’s signature. These models will also feature a peghead inlay. Cutaway Grand Auditorium featuring neo-tropical mahogany back/sides, and Western red cedar top, V-Class bracing, grained ivoroid Century fretboard/peghead inlay, black graphite nut, and new guitar label. Standard 500 Series appointments otherwise apply.
