When it comes to Taylor’s true high-end line, it feels strange – even improper – to label an acoustic guitar costing under $2000 an “entry-level model,” but this stunning 314ce electro-acoustic is without a doubt the first port of call. Remember that certain Taylor models may cost tens of thousands of dollars, so this all-solid-wood, American-made model is already a great value! Let’s have a look at it.
The 314ce is a wonderful all-arounder, a basic but attractive workhorse with a bright and responsive sound that would be equally at home performing live – in a coffee shop, church, or theatre – as it would in the studio. It isn’t cheap, but it isn’t ridiculous when compared to the price of certain Taylors, and it offers good value for an electro-acoustic model made completely in the United States.
This 314ce is on its way to being as amazing as it gets. This guitar may become your go-to with its Sitka spruce/Sapele Grand Auditorium body with cutaway, Taylor’s new-age V-Class bracing system, and excellent ES2 electronics. Grand Auditoriums made of Sitka Spruce/Sapele with Cutaway are fantastic in so many ways, and they’re an essential element of Taylor’s acoustic line.
It’s popular among guitarists of all types, whether strum- or pick-based since it produces a natural tone and resonance. Sapele, a wood with vibrant highs, is used to carve this 314ce. It has a Sitka spruce soundboard, which is a great option for a resonant, lively tone. Taylor’s V-Class Bracing System is a new generation of Taylor’s bracing system. Taylor’s V-Class bracing mechanism enhances both resonance and volume at the same time.
The V-shaped bracing that runs from the end of the body to the soundhole allows the Sitka spruce top to bend and generate strong volume, while the stiffness in the middle of the instrument produces notes that reverberate for longer. Interference, which can cause notes to sound slightly out of tune, is also eliminated with V-Class bracing. As a result, this guitar will sound the same no matter where you play it on the neck. ES2 Electronics is a fantastic company. Taylor’s amplification invention is featured on the 314ce.
The Expression System 2 electronics system was created to capture all of the guitar’s appealing, genuine acoustic tones. The ES2 pickup, which is mounted below the saddle, features three well-placed sensors that record a dynamic spectrum of sound like you’ve never heard before. With volume, treble, and bass settings on the integrated ES2 preamp, you can fine-tune your sound.
