Taylor 514ce Mahogany Body / Cedar Top

Cedar’s warm midrange overtones and quick response make it a coveted top wood among fingerstylists and other players with a lighter touch. On this mahogany/cedar cutaway Grand Auditorium, V-Class bracing lifts those sonic virtues to new heights, serving up an even more powerful all-around response with billowing sustain. Add to that the bundle of sonic refinements that V-Class brings, including more powerful notes all the way up the fretboard and greater in-tuneness between the notes (thanks to a more orderly response from the top), and you’ve got a guitar that can cover a lot of ground. Mahogany’s naturally dry, focused voice emphasizes the midrange, lending a warm, clear punch that strummers, blues players will especially appreciate. Appointments include faux tortoise shell binding and pickguard, a faux tortoise/ivoroid rosette, and our striking Century fretboard inlay scheme in grained ivoroid with a new peghead inlay to complement the motif. With onboard Taylor ES2 electronics, you can count on natural-sounding amplified acoustic tone whenever you need it. The guitar also features a Venetian cutaway for upper-fretboard access, and ships in a deluxe hardshell case.


Features
Discover the features that make this guitar unique.

Grand Auditorium Shape - Taylor’s signature shape embodies the ultimate all-purpose acoustic.

Western Red Cedar Top Wood - A true performer for those with a lighter touch, cedar tops yield extra warmth and pair nicely with mahogany and rosewood.

Tropical Mahogany Body Wood - A midrange powerhouse. Mahogany is prized for balance and articulation, making it one of the best all-around tonewoods there is.

Expression System® 2 Electronics - Captures more of a guitar’s dynamic properties using a breakthrough behind-the-saddle design.

Venetian Cutaway - Is known for its soft, round lines. The sloping peak of the cutaway will vary depending on the shape of the guitar.

V-Class Bracing - A revolutionary design that balances the flexibility and stability of the top, V-Class bracing produces unmatched sustain, volume, and intonation.
