Solid torrefied Sitka spruce top, maple back and sides and Taylor’s innovative ES2 electronics.

The Taylor 614ce Special-Edition Grand Auditorium acoustic-electric guitar offers a new voice and updated version on what players may know as the traditional maple sound. Taylor's 600 series was revoiced by Andy Powers to generate more warmth, depth and openness. Crafted with solid Big Leaf maple back and sides and a torrefied Sitka spruce top, the Taylor 614ce Grand Auditorium takes a boost from the V-Class bracing inside to add volume and sustain and complement the torrefied top with extra sweetness and depth.

The result is a guitar with a highly player-reflective sound—one that showcases the unique stylistic and technical expression of each individual player. To compliment the incredible sound, this 614ce Special Edition boasts a pronounced gloss finish, adorned with a green abalone rosette, mother-of-pearl Taylor logo, a twisted oval finger inlay pattern, and gold tuning machines.

This instrument comes stage-ready with Taylor's Expression System 2 electronics to faithfully replicate the sound of the instrument. This guitar ships in a Taylor Deluxe hardshell case for maximum protection.

Grand Auditorium Body Shape
A Taylor original, the Grand Auditorium helped establish the Taylor acoustic sound. The popular body style makes for a versatile guitar that yields ample volume in response to light fingerpicking and reacts to medium strumming and flatpicking with a clear, balanced sound across the tonal spectrum.

Tonewood Pairing
Sitka spruce is one of the most prevalent guitar top woods of the modern era. It blends stiffness and elasticity in just the right proportions to translate into broad dynamic range with crisp articulation. Guitars in Taylor’s 600 Series feature a special seasoning process for the spruce top called torrefaction—a method of roasting the wood to produce an aged tonal character with greater acoustic resonance and responsiveness.

Traditionally known for having a focused tone with a fast note decay that cuts through a mix, Taylor’s maple (back and sides) guitars have been voiced to produce greater warmth, complexity, volume, sustain, and responsiveness, while retaining maple’s naturally clear, linear qualities. The clarity of the high end is still there, but the bottom end has been extended. The result is a more multi-dimensional sound that gives players the kind of musical versatility of other classic tonewoods, making Taylor’s maple models a compelling choice as a primary guitar, not just a stage guitar. Taylor’s maple guitars are voiced to be very reflective of the player’s technique, so a player with a dynamic playing style or someone who likes to vary their picking attack will appreciate how easily those playing nuances come through in the tonal response.

Taylor's ES2 is a revolutionary pickup design that delivers the latest in Taylor’s ongoing innovation in acoustic guitar amplification. The heart of the Expression System 2 is Taylor’s patented behind-the-saddle pickup, which features three uniquely positioned and individually calibrated pickup sensors. Because the pickup doesn't sit under the saddle, the bottom of the saddle comes in full contact with the bridge, allowing all the nuance of the guitar's tone to come through clearly, whether playing acoustically or plugged in. The location of the sensors enables a more dynamic range of acoustic sound to be captured while playing plugged in. Together with Taylor’s custom-designed “professional audio”-grade preamp, this system produces exceptional amplified tone and responsiveness. The Taylor Expression System 2 operates through a proprietary 9-volt battery compartment and easy-to-use volume, and active bass and treble controls.

V-Class Bracing
Taylor's V-Class bracing is essentially a "sonic engine" that optimizes the response of an acoustic guitar in three key ways: by boosting volume, sustain, and by largely resolving the intonation (in-tune-ness) issues that have long plagued acoustic guitars. V-Class bracing creates purer, more orderly notes that don't cancel each other out or sound “off.” They have clearer, more consistent response, and the whole fretboard is brought into greater sonic alignment for a more musical playing/listening experience. Guitars with V-Class bracing are easier to tune; the pitch sounds purer and more solid, and electronic tuners can more easily locate notes for quick, precise tuning.
