Taylor: 314CE(Item ID: 314CE Serial#: 1102027004)
Grand Auditorium with Cutaway and Taylor ES-2 Pickup System
The Taylor 314ce may be the most popular guitar Taylor makes. It simply provides wonderful performance at a great price. The fast easy playability for which Taylor guitars are widely known is further enhanced by both the medium-sized grand auditorium body shape and by the Venetian cutaway. The smaller body is more comfortable to handle, and the cutaway allows easy access to the upper "dusty" part of the fingerboard.
The gloss finished solid Sitka spruce top and the satin finished solid African sapele back and sides produce a voice that is open, clear, firm, and vibrant - great for either fingerstyle playing or strumming.
The inclusion of a Taylor ES-2 pickup dramatically expands the range of this instrument and adds immeasurably to the ease of playability. With sound processing and amplification, the voice of the instrument is yours for the making, and the effort required to produce a sound is reduced to a minimum.
From the Taylor website:
"The heart of the Expression System 2 is Taylorís proprietary behind-the-saddle pickup (patent pending), which features three uniquely positioned and individually calibrated pickup sensors. The location of the sensors enables a more dynamic range of acoustic sound to be captured than ever before. Together with Taylorís custom-designed professional audio-grade preamp, this system produces exceptional amplified tone and responsiveness."
This guitar includes a Taylor archtop hardshell case.
