Taylor

Great tonewoods and amazing electronics on Taylor’s most popular body.

Providing access to the upper registers of the fingerboard, the soft Venetian cutaway on the Taylor 414ce Ovangkol/Spruce Grand Auditorium Acoustic-Electric Guitar is both practical and attractive, while the Taylor Expression System™ allows you to share your music with the world.

Ovangkol/Sitka
Ovangkol back and sides lend exotic flare to the Taylor 410ce Acoustic-Electric with a tone many find reminiscent of rosewood. The sitka spruce top gives a punch to the tone, together they create a rich, tonal tapestry.

Grand Auditorium (GA)
The GA is Taylor’s most versatile and popular shape, excelling at light-touch fingerstyle and strumming. Great for miking and recording, the GA’s balanced mid-range and bright tone exemplify the Taylor voice.

Expression System
Using proprietary pickup technology developed at Taylor, the Expression System amplifies your guitar with a natural live sound. Onboard tone controls provide added flavor, or set flat for an uncolored, exceptionally-clean amplified sound. It’s your tone, amplified.

Comments about Taylor 414ce Ovangkol/Spruce Grand Auditorium Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

I traded in an Ovation Deluxe on this guitar
and what a BIG MISTAKE it was..The electronics aren't near as good as the FISHMAN electronics.
I didn't like the round back on the Ovation,,but
other than that..so..( DON'T WASTE YOUR MONEY!!!)
There is nothing special about this guitar...

        Comments about Taylor 414ce Ovangkol/Spruce Grand Auditorium Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

        I own both the 2012 814ce as well s the 2013 414ce. I've had the 814 a little over a year so I am very familiar with its sound and action. I picked up the 414 so I wouldn't have to take the 414 to gigs. Had I taken the time to play both extensively prior to my purchase of the 814 I would have initially bought the 414. The sound and playability of the 414 is pretty much identical to the 814 with cosmetics being the difference. These are without a doubt truly exceptional instruments.

              Comments about Taylor 414ce Ovangkol/Spruce Grand Auditorium Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

              Bought this for me for a retirement gift. My wife bought me a Taylor 30 years ago and it is still used for jamming. I wanted a cutaway and this was the perfect guitar for my needs. Hard to put it down now that I have time to play it. Can't go wrong - everything out of the box was perfect.

              ive had this guitar for about 3 years and its been great,i got this because it has a great sound and the neck feels awesome. ive taken this across the country and its been through multiple airports so the case is warn out but it still does its job. the guitar is still in excellent condition with just a few little dings, if your looking for an acoustic taylor is the way to go!

              Don't believe the taylor hype

              Comments about Taylor 414ce Ovangkol/Spruce Grand Auditorium Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

              I bought one of these new and played half the first set with it at a gig. It sounds great unplugged, but the es system is junk, and plugged in it is not good at all. For the money, a yamaha or martin at less than half the cost is a much better buy. [@]. These guitars are mass produced on cnc machines, and though they are pretty well made, why no strap button on the front end? Go back to fishman and these guitars could sound good again.

              Ovangkol sounds great and looks amazing

              By Evan Ansley

              from Georgia

              Comments about Taylor 414ce Ovangkol/Spruce Grand Auditorium Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

              Loved it out of the box. Wood looks amazing under the satin finish. Craftsmanship seems top notch and the I've heard the Taylor Customer service is top notch, but with the way this guitar is built I dont forsee having lots of problems. Unplugged, sounds amazing. I like finger picking to John Mayer and it sounds amazing. The guitar rings for days and the wood isn't even aged yet. Plugged, you can surprisingly get a wide range of sounds out of the expression system considering you have two tone control knobs and one volume. Highly recommend it.

              Comments about Taylor 414ce Ovangkol/Spruce Grand Auditorium Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

              This is an excellent guitar. The craftsmanship is top notch. I play different styles of music from blues to rock, folk to country....whatever I feel at the time. This is an all-around good instrument for both strumming and fingerpicking. The case that comes with it is also excellent, the guitar fits like a glove in it and the accessory portion is quite large as well. If you have the cash, I would definitely reccomend this guitar. I also own a GS Mini, you can't go wrong with Taylor products.

              All my hopes and dreams

              By Robert Sharpe

              from Montana

              Comments about Taylor 414ce Ovangkol/Spruce Grand Auditorium Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

              This guitar is a serious piece of work. The feel of it is just smooth...and of course buying online is always unsettling not knowing how the guitar actually feels. But I was not dissapointed in the least bit. I can't put the dang thing down. I do keep my room humidified at 55-60% to maintain long life. And my only complaint is a small amount of fret buzz when barring the chords while its detuned (primarily top string). Other than that, plays like a dream.
