Taylor 414ce-R Electro Acoustic V Class Bracing

Taylor's 400 Series is back, crafted with solid tonewoods and equipped with Taylor's new 'Sonic Engine' - perfect for the professional performer or collector craving superior tone and playability.

 

Fitted with innovative V Class bracing, the 414ce-R is able to project more volume, more sustain, and also improves intonation greatly. Its mixture of solid sitka spruce and solid Indian rosewood produce great clarity, richness, and consistency with a broad dynamic range, plenty of resonance, and deep-warm bass response. Additionally, a grand auditorium body provides an idyllic all-purpose guitar with an incredibly versatile response to a wide variety of techniques.

The Taylor 414ce-R also features a Venetian cutaway which adds to the guitar's incredibly comfortable playing experience whilst offering easy access to upper frets. This stunning Taylor Electro Acoustic comes equipped with ES2 electronics, capturing the 414ce-R's dynamic properties via its innovative behind-the-saddle construction.

 

Solid Sitka Spruce & Solid Rosewood Construction

The Taylor 414ce-R Electro Acoustic features a solid wood construction for a richly-superior sound that only gets better with age. Its sitka spruce top brings the versatility, allowing you to achieve a wide variety of playing styles and genres with an incredible response. Additionally, the solid sitka spruce top yields a crisp, articulate tone with a broad dynamic range, projecting a bright attack and superb clarity. The premium quality solid top is accompanied by solid Indian rosewood back and sides, producing a resonant, deep, warm bass with a visually striking, highly-figured body that complements the contrasting spruce top. Additionally, Taylor's Indian rosewood back and sides make each note bloom whilst keeping overtones in check and producing a full low-end with bright trebles. This classic pairing of solid sitka spruce and solid Indian rosewood delivers a sonically-pleasing mixture of definition and warmth, perfect for flatpicking and a wide variety of strumming and picking techniques.

V-Class Bracing for Superb Sustain and Intonation

Taylor's brand new bracing pattern was designed by Andy Powers, only featured on select 2018 models from Taylor, classed as the 'new sonic-engine'. Bracing a guitar reinforces the overall structure and prevents its from collapsing under string tension, as well as enhancing the guitar's sound. This specially designed V-class bracing improves the 414e-R's sonic-performance by adding more volume, more sustain, as well as improving intonation greatly, resulting in notes being more in-tune with each other for a truly beautiful sound. Furthermore, in any position up and down the fingerboard, each note is true, full, and consistent, with each note being in complete harmony with one-another.

Tropical Mahogany Neck & West African Ebony Fingerboard

Constructed from tropical mahogany, the 414ce-R's neck offers quick and dynamic response with a punchy, distinct, tonal output. In addition, the neck has a satin finish for a smooth performance up and down the neck while preventing the likeliness of sticky 'gig-hands'. Furthermore, the neck is topped with a West African ebony fingerboard that adds a bright attack, superb sustain, and plenty of bite to the guitar's overall sound. Lastly, the fingerboard is sprinkled with eye-catching renaisaance inlays for added elegance to its premium and distinct appearance.

Grand Auditorium with Venetian Cutaway

With a grand auditorium cutaway body, the Taylor 414ce-R provides a versatile performance, equally-suited to both fingerpicking and strumming techniques. In addition, the grand auditorium body offers a full low-end, a focused, present mid-range, and sparkles on the treble notes. Its unique and individual voice projects an impressive amount of balance across the tonal spectrum, producing a clear, well-defined tone. The Taylor's overall presence also fits beautifully well into a live mix, perfect for stage work, studio settings, as well as composing musicians. The 414ce-R's body size falls between bold, brash dreadnought shapes and grand concert sized guitars, resulting in an incredibly versatile instrument that accommodates numerous techniques and genres with equal ease. This well-rounded, all-purpose electro acoustic also provides a comfortable playing experience due to its medium sized body and comfortable curves. Lastly, its Venetian cutaway profile also provides added comfort whilst offering easy access to upper frets and more challenging chords, enabling the player to perform more technical skills in more challenging positions with incredible amounts of ease.

Expression System 2

The Taylor 414ce-R comes equipped with a built-in expression system 2, perfect for the performing musician. This special design features an innovative behind-the-saddle construction that picks-up the Taylor's natural dynamic properties and projects them beautifully. The Expression System 2 features three pickup sensors, the location of these sensors enable more acoustic dynamics to be captured, resulting in an exceptional amplified tone and a superior response to each nuance of a player's individual style. Its Expression System 2 combined with Taylor's 'professional audio' preamp allows the player to simply plug-in to an amplifier, PA system or directly into recording software, faithfully capturing and projecting the 414ce-R's stunning yet natural tonal properties. Furthermore, the 414ce-R also features three soft-touch rotary controls, allowing the player to accurately shape their amplified tone with ease, perfect for live, studio, and rehearsal settings. In addition, a player is able to adjust the bass, treble, and volume, perfect for experimenting with the Taylor's amplified tone to find a sound that suits an individual's musical style. These discreet controls are also easy to use and by rotating the controls back and forth. A player will feel a small bump that indicates the middle position of the control, meaning the control is turned off, and the centre point on the volume control indicates half of the highest amount of volume.
