The Taylor 614ce V-Class Electro Acoustic Guitar in Brown Sugar is a delightful model for gigging and recording with. Built to Taylor's versatile Grand Auditorium body shape, this model features Taylor's unique V-Class bracing, which offers sonic improvements all round to enhance its already impressive performance. Each model is supplied with a Taylor Deluxe hardshell brown case to get you and your pride and joy from A to B in safety and style.
The 614ce is endowed with the Grand Auditorium body shape with elegantly carved Venetian cutaway. The back and sides are built using maple, which establishes a hearty mid-range energy that is projected elegantly by the Sitka spruce top. Whether you choose to play fingerstyle or with a pick, you can rest assured that the subtle nuances of your performance will be presented faithfully. Thanks to a coating a gloss, the tonewoods remain protected and preserved for as long as possible.
Taylor's revolutionary V-Class bracing pattern increases soundboard flexibility and stiffness in equal measure. The result is improved resonance, which is allows the soundboard to generate greater projection for increased efficiency and dynamics. Secondly, thanks to the stiffer properties, the spruce preserves string motion for improved sustain so that notes ring out for longer. Finally, the V-Class bracing pattern affords masterful intonation. Therefore, whether you're fretting a chord near the nut or closer to the bridge, each note retains perfect pitch.
Joined to the body is a sturdy yet responsive tropical mahogany neck, which is carved to a comfortable profile that accommodates fingerstyle players and flatpicking strummers alike. Paired with the neck is a luxurious West African ebony fingerboard adorned with grained ivoroid wing position inlays. The sleek satin finish allows the fretting hand to glide along with ease, whilst the Venetian cutaway affords comfortable accessibility to the highest frets.
Taylor's exclusive Expression System 2 pickup is fitted in the 614ce to give you unparalleled amplification. The ES2 pickup features three uniquely positioned and individually calibrated pickup sensors that faithfully transmit the natural tones of the 614ce through recording equipment or an amplifier. Taylor have patented this behind-the-saddle design and it is one which captures all the tones on offer from the 614ce.
The Taylor 614ce is home to Taylor nickel tuning machines, which uphold tuning integrity meticulously throughout every performance. The Macassar ebony pickguard provides protection against unwanted nicks and scrapes, whilst the black graphite nut and micarta saddle do their part to uphold intonation and sustain.
