A Grand Auditorium Body
The 914ce has a full sized grand auditorium body with a softly rounded venetian cutaway. Sitting in between the more traditional dreadnought and concert bodies, the incredibly versatile grand auditorium profile is regarded as Taylor's signature shape, delivering a balanced tone equally suited to all styles of strumming and fingerstyle playing. The solid rosewood body and solid sitka Spruce top add warmth and richness to the guitar's sound, providing the 914ce with clarity and definition across the tonal spectrum, with an especially sweet midrange.
Unique Bracing Pattern
All 900 series Taylor guitar feature the new 'CV' bracing pattern, which allows the solid sitka spruce top to vibrate and resonate much more than standard bracing patterns. The result is an impressive level of tonal richness and projection. This new bracing is only available on guitars in the 800 series or above, reserved for some of the most premium instruments that Taylor produces.
The Perfect Guitar Neck
For ultimate playability and peace of mind, all 900 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.
Expression System 2
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 ES2 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.
