Taylor 314ce-N Nylon Grand Auditorium Electro Classical

The Taylor 314ce-N has a Grand Auditorium body shape, which is the best all-rounder, being great for both strumming and fingerpicking, while also being a comfortable shape to play. It balances the bright tone of the Sitka spruce top with the mellow nylon sound. The Venetian cutaway lets you reach the upper frets easier.

The Sitka spruce top delivers great projection and crisp articulation. Sitka spruce ages nicely over the first four or five years of the guitar’s life which means the guitar sounds better over time.

The body is completed with Sapele back and sides, which is similar to mahogany but has a slightly darker tone. It sounds sweet and is quieter than spruce. It’s more responsive to a lighter touch and blends well with other acoustic instruments.

It also has a neck made from tropical mahogany, and is topped with a durable 20-fret ebony fretboard which both make the guitar sound even better by providing increased resonance and sustain.

The 314ce-N has an ES-N pickup, which is an under-saddle transducer featuring a preamp that is voiced for nylon strings and tone controls that accentuate the natural sound of the nylon strings.

The Taylor 314ce-N Grand Auditorium Electro Acoustic Guitar is completed with Nylon nickel tuners with pearloid buttons, black binding, Italian acrylic dot inlays, a 3 ring rosette, a gloss finish and comes with a Taylor Standard Black Hardshell case.

As a nylon string guitar, it delivers silky smooth tones that’s great for classical or jazz styles, as well as styles such as flamenco.

Fancy an upgrade? The 514ce is glossy with Tropical Mahogany back and sides, with a choice of either a Lutz spruce or Western Red Cedar top.
