Unlike other models, the Taylor 314ce Nylon Electro Acoustic Guitar is equipped with Nylon strings. The benefit of nylon strings compared to steel, offers a unique tone that combines a sweet, fat and brilliant tone. Nylon strings are particularly popular with flamenco playing and many form of Latin music. Another benefit of Nylon is that they exert less tension than steel strings, and therefore allows the tone to vibrate more easily.
Sitka Spruce and Sapele
The Taylor 314ce Nylon Electro Acoustic, features a beautiful sitka spruce top and offers a broad dynamic range and yielding crisp articulation. Sitka Spruce is the most commonly used wood for guitar tops as it generates a broad dynamic range and accommodates numerous playing styles, from aggressive strumming to fingerpicking. This stunning tonewood is contrasted with sapele back and sides, which delivers a consistent and balanced tone, with a more top-end shimmer. This stunning combination of tonewoods not only provides you with a beautiful guitar, but also offers a great combination of tones.
Expression System 2
As well as offering a great acoustic tone, the 314ce Nylon can also be used amplified. The Taylor Expression System 2 is a revolutionary pickup design that delivers the latest in Taylor's ongoing innovation in acoustic guitar amplification. The heart of the 314ce Nylon Electro Acoustic is Taylor's proprietary behind-the-saddle pickup, 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 Taylor's custom designed ''professional audio''-grade preamp, this system produces exceptional amplified tone and responsiveness. On stage through a PA, plugged into your favorite acoustic amplifier, or direct into recording software, the Expression System 2 faithfully conveys the voice of your Taylor guitar.
The Venetian Cutaway is renowned for its soft, round lines. This type of Cutaway allows easier access tot he upper frets, and enables you with more freedom throughout the fingerboard, and therefore providing you with tonal versatility.
Grand Auditorium Body Shape
The grand auditorium body shape is Taylor's most popular and versatile body shape, and delivers a full low-end register, a present midrange, and sparkling on the treble strings.
