Commanding presence with elegant styling and the subtle presence of solid wood.
The Taylor 315CE Jumbo Cutaway Acoustic-Electric Guitar's solid Sitka spruce top produces plenty of punch with bold, open midrange. Thank the tonewoods: a solid sapele back and sides.
Ideally suited for aggressive strumming, the jumbo Taylor 315CE is crafted with a high-fret cutaway, a beautiful ebony fretboard and a distinctive bridge. A mahogany neck, Indian rosewood headstock veneer, black plastic binding, and chromeplated Taylor tuners add additional eye appeal.
Rupert Neve-designed the 315CE guitar's Taylor Expression System electronics with Dynamic Sensors and tone controls that capture vibrations from the guitar's top and strings as never before. The Taylor finish on the jumbo 315CE guitar's textured satin back and sides and its lustrous gloss top were developed for maximum durability and resistance to cold-checking. Taylor's ultraviolet-cured finish is also more environmentally friendly than traditional lacquer finishes.

Good sounding guitar. It has kind of a wide neck that takes some getting use to. I still prefer the tone of a Martin, but this is still an excellent guitar with an excellent pickup system; probably one of the best sounding guitars plugged in.
I purchased this Taylor because I wanted an acoustic-electric with the Expression system and a Jumbo sound. I think it's a fine guitar with very warm treble, but I find it lacking on the basses. I am also a bit disappointed in the high e-string which seems to find it's way off of the fretboard at times when I'm not wanting it to. This guitar lives up to the Taylor reputation when plugged in and the fretboard is very comfortable to play. I remain unconvinced that Taylor is a better guitar than Martin, even after reading one review after another claiming it to be so. I have a Martin D-15 that is every bit as playable as this Jumbo Taylor and sounds better.All that noted, I am still quite happy with my purchase..... and again, Musicians Friend came through very nicely in getting my new Taylor to me on time and in great shape.
Full range tone, stable neck and body, holds pitch without trouble. No frills working mans guitar that will be a keeper for the rest of your life. Mine has been set up by a pro and it plays and sounds as full as my 814ce. I bought it as a beater to use it in place of my "golden guitars" because people must always touch your gear. Now I protect it like it cost me three times the amount I paid. Its that good. Feedback control with the e.s. system blows the old Fishman pre-amps out of the water. Buy one and never look back.
I gave this guitar 7 stars on value simply because you are paying a premium to own a Taylor.I love the guitar. I've had it for about 1 month. I also have a Alvarez RD20S. It is bigger than a Dread so it has taken me awhile to get use to the size. I'm not sure if I like the medium strings that come standard. The sound however is amazing. The guitar has a bell like ring on the first 3 strings which is sometimes hypnotic. When you play chords with drone notes like some of the classic America songs from the 70's it just feels right. It is very loud and works well for fingerpicking. (I'm actually using it for my classical lessons until my Prudencio saez 4a arrives.) The bass is nice but does not have the weight of a Martin but I didn't purchase a Martin ;). Tonewise it definitely leans more toward the mids and trebles. I've heard a lot of complaints about the ES pickup system, however I've had no problems and love it. Their is no doubt you are paying a premium for the Taylor name. In return you get a quality solid wood american made guitar that sounds great. Plus its a Taylor !!!!Bottom line this guitar makes me sound like a better player than I am........
I own 13 guitars. Martin, Takamine, Ovation, Fender etc. I have never played an instrument that can equal the quality, tone and craftsmenship of the Taylor 315 CE. It is noticeably louder and more full sounding unplugged than anything I've tested or owned. Plugged in, it will make the chicken skin stand up on the back of your neck. (Thats Tennessee talk for you Yankee pickers out there.) Martin and Gibson can't touch this. Buy it. You won't be sorry. Period.
I am not a professional guitarist by any means, but I have played some good Taylor guitars, and am very impressed by their tone, action, and overall style. I like the way they play, and the sound awesome unplugged as well as amp'd. Ovation still beats Taylor out plugged in in my opinion, but Taylors are unmatched unplugged. This guitar is so loud unplugged, you will hardly need an amp!
Taylor guitars have exceptional volume and balanced tone when played acoustically. I had never been a fan of an on-board pre-amp system (due to the tinny, artificial piezo sound) until I used Taylor's Expression system. The sound is superb. I am an aggressive strummer but also do some fairly intricate flat-picking. I've never played a guitar that sounded so good both ways. Every string rings out clearly, the bass is very punchy, and the sound is never muddy. I compared a lot of guitars before buying Taylor. Gibsons sound too bassy and muddy and the Martins I played didn't have the same punch when flat-picked. If you're serious about acoustic guitar, a Taylor is well worth the investment.
My 315ce came with a Fishman Prefix Plus preamp. This one comes with the expression system. Out of the box, it will not sound phenominal at all when plugged in. Unplugged, this guitar is equal to any $3000 to $5000 guitar I have ever played. The tone is so well rounded, loads of bass, great highs, and an easy action to boot! I placed a LR Baggs I Beam in mine, made all the difference in the world when on stage. I have recorded and played live with this guitar for 3 years now, never has any warping problems as long as you humidify it to 60% or so. The best guitar I own by far.
I've had this guitar for a lil over a year. And just like my other taylors it's solid. the jumbo sound ...well there's nothing like it. No wills and thrills just a working mans guitar. I'm an acoustic solo kinda guy host a lot of open mics and gig's 2-4 times a week and any guitar would take some kinda beating from all that but not this one, still solid. I tell ppl all the time about taylors and they always give me " well martin or gibsons are the way to go" I never like eather of them I'm a taylor guy if you havn't OWNED one you'll never know how good you could really be. I KNOW my taylor has made me a better Guitarist.
When I was beginning my search of a guitar I was sure that a Martin would be the way that I would go, then I searched in the area of Jumbo Taylor. It has the lows of a Martin with the gorgeous highs of the Taylor, that we have all come to know and love. This is the best buy that I could afford. The 615 and 815 are just to high in price. This is a practical and wonderful guitar.
