The Grand Auditorium Body

The 414ce has a full sized grand auditorium body with a cutaway for easy access to the upper neck register. It's fair to say that the grand auditorium is Taylor's signature body shape, sitting in the middle of more traditional dreadnought and concert bodies. The result is outstanding tonal balance with a sweet midrange, giving the player a clear, well defined sound.

Unique Bracing Pattern

A significant factor behind the incredible sound of the 414ce is the forward shifted bracing pattern with a relief rout. The 'x' in the bracing pattern is moved closer to the soundhole, enabling more of the guitar top to vibrate, delivering maximum tonal quality and projection.

The Perfect Guitar Neck

For ultimate playability and peace of mind, all 400 series guitars feature Taylor's unique NT neck design. The NT neck was designed to give players a straighter, more stable guitar neck, resistant to common problems such as changes in humidity. The neck sits in a custom fit pocket along with laser-cut spacers. There's a perfect neck angle for each Taylor guitar, and these precision spacers create it. Best of all, because there is no glue used in the NT neck design, maintenance and adjustments can be made by trained technicians in a matter of minutes.

Exceptional Pickup 2 System

The 414ce also comes with Taylor's industry leading Expression System 2 pickup, meaning that this guitar is ready for the studio or the stage. Taylor pickup systems have been setting the standard that other brands aspire to achieve for many years. The system uses magnetic sensors mounted on the body and under the fingerboard, meaning that when you plug in, you hear an accurate, warm representation of your guitar. The pickup features an on-board preamp with a custom voiced EQ and dials to control the treble, bass and master volume of the guitar, and a phase switch for feedback control.

Quality You Can Trust

Taylor Guitars design and construct each of their guitars to a high standard, ensuring that each time you play, you are getting the best paying experience. All of Taylor’s 400 series guitars include an official Taylor hard case, and customers can benefit from a FREE 12 year Taylor European warranty when registering their purchased guitar at www.taylorguitars.com
