Taylor 414ce-R – Tobacco Sunburst

Serial Number: 1201173135
Weight: 4 lbs 10 oz

The Taylor 414ce Grand Auditorium acoustic-electric is a bridge between everyday musical utility and top-tier craftsmanship with a refined-rustic vibe that complements the tonal warmth and lush overtone response of the rosewood/spruce wood pairing. The Grand Auditorium body style makes for a versatile guitar that yields ample volume in response to light fingerpicking, and reacts to medium strumming and flatpicking with a clear, balanced sound across the tonal spectrum. A Sitka spruce top blends the right amount of stiffness and elasticity in proportions that translates into a broad dynamic range with crisp articulation. This is combined with an East Indian Rosewood body for a full-spectrum voice with complex overtones and a long sustain. Aside from its comfortable playability, the 414ce is also equipped with Expression System 2 electronics for clear, full tone in any venue. The heart of the Expression System 2 is Taylor’s patented behind-the-saddle pickup, which features three uniquely positioned and individually calibrated pickup sensors. The position of the sensors enables a more dynamic range of acoustic sound to be captured when plugged-in. Combined with Taylor’s custom-designed “professional audio”-grade preamp, this system produces exceptional amplified tone and responsiveness. Whether you plug into a PA, your favorite acoustic amplifier or direct into recording software, the Expression System 2 faithfully conveys the voice of your Taylor guitar. If you want to adjust your sound, you can color it with easy-to-use volume and active bass and treble controls. The Taylor Expression System 2 is powered by a proprietary 9-volt battery compartment.
