Taylor 614ce Grand Auditorium Electro Acoustic, Brown Sugar
Taylor 614ce Product Overview by GAK
The most popular of the 600 series guitars, the Taylor 614ce has a Grand Auditorium body shape which works perfectly with the Maple/Spruce construction. This combination results in a guitar which is an incredibly versatile performer. This latest addition features new tone-enhancing features, including the new Taylor Advanced Performance bracing patterns and optimised back bracing specifically designed for use with Maple. This not only allows the guitar to resonate freely, but also enhances the characteristics of the Maple, making it richer, warmer and more complex.
Constructed from all solid tonewoods, the 614ce features a Torrefied Sitka Spruce Top. Torrefaction is a Process which slow roasts the timber and results in greater acoustic resonance and an aged tonal character. This is combined with Maple back and sides, Maple neck and an Ebony fretboard. Aesthetically the guitar has vintage appointments including a stained 'Brown Sugar' back, sides and neck, Ebony binding, Ivoroid and Ebony Rosette, Ivoroid 'Wings' inlays and an Ebony back strap.
The 614ce is fitted with the Taylor Expression System ES2 pickup and preamp which gives a true representation of the guitars natural tone when amplified.
Includes fitted Taylor Hardshell Case.
