What We Think

The 514ce is yet another great example of extremely high quality, great sounding guitars from Taylor! Featuring a Western Red Cedar top and Tropical Mahogany body, this guitar has a beautiful, rich and powerful tone! The 514ce also features Taylor’s very own Expression System 2 pickup system to deliver a great, natural tone through the amp- making the most of the carefully selected tone woods. The new V-Class bracing is also another fantastic feature of this instrument helping with sustain and fantastic resonance!

Bolton Store

This 514ce Grand Auditorium guitar is a popular favourite for singer songwriters. The guitar has a Solid Cedar Top with Mahogany back & sides. With the Cedar top the guitar has a great warm tone to it. Taylor have also used the Taylor Performance bracing so the guitar has a lovely powerful tone with lots of volume. If you are playing live, recording or even just for the home this guitar is a most have. You have to really play it to appreciate it’s tonal capability and usability. The guitar comes with the Taylor Deluxe hardshell case.

A Grand Auditorium Body

The 514ce has a full sized Grand Auditorium body with a softly rounded Venetian cutaway. Sitting between the more traditional Dreadnought and Concert bodies, the incredibly versatile Grand Auditorium profile is regarded as Taylor's signature shape, delivering a balanced tone equally suited to all styles of strumming and fingerstyle playing. The solid mahogany body and red cedar top provide the guitar with a boosted midrange, creating excellent clarity and plenty of warmth.

Venetian Cutaway

The Venetian Cutaway is renowned for its soft, round lines, creating a visually stunning look that is recognisable on any body. This type of cutaway allows easier access to the upper frets for a comfortable play, and provides more freedom throughout the fingerboard.

The Perfect Guitar Neck

For ultimate playability and peace of mind, the 514ce guitar features Taylor's unique NT neck design. The NT neck was designed to give players a straighter, more stable guitar neck, resistant to common problems such as changes in humidity. The neck sits in a custom fit pocket along with laser-cut spacers. There's a perfect neck angle for each Taylor guitar, and these precision spacers create it. Best of all, because there is no glue used in the NT neck design, maintenance and adjustments can be made by trained technicians in a matter of minutes.

Expression System 2

The Taylor Expression System 2 is a revolutionary pickup design that delivers the latest in Taylor's ongoing innovation in acoustic guitar amplification. The heart of the ES2 is Taylor's proprietary behind-the-saddle pickup, which features three uniquely positioned and individually calibrated pickup sensors. The location of the sensors enables a more dynamic range of acoustic sound to be captured than ever before. Together with Taylor's custom designed ''professional audio''-grade preamp, this system produces exceptional amplified tone and responsiveness. On stage through a PA, plugged into your favorite acoustic amplifier, or direct into recording software, the Expression System 2 faithfully conveys the voice of your Taylor guitar.

The Taylor 514ce Grand Auditorium Electro Acoustic Guitar is designed for the versatile musician, offering a range of tones that will suit an array of musical styles. Its grand auditorium sized body with a cutaway is large enough to give a powerful low end, but still maintains the high end charm of a small guitar. The guitar's fret neck joint is in a scarf style for easy playability and comfort, whilst the cutaway allows easy access to the top frets when required. The cedar top combined with mahogany back and sides brings a natural clarity and boosted midrange creating warm tones with complex highs and thick lows. The 514ce's mahogany neck and ebony fingerboard brings incredible dynamics to the overall tonality, creating incredible amounts of depth that help make the Taylor an extremely versatile guitar. Taylor have equipped the 514ce with Performance bracing to maximise projection and their expression system 2 electronics that faithfully capture the guitar's natural tones, making it a great instrument for live use as well as studio recordings.
