OVERVIEW

Topnotch tonewoods, excellent electronics, and impressive inlays.

Taylor's Presentation Series guitars occupy a class all their own. Constructed out of the finest sets of cocobolo Taylor has procured, the entire series, including the Presentation Series 2014 PS14ce Grand Auditorium Acoustic-Electric Guitar, are paired with premium Sitka spruce tops. A contoured ebony armrest blends style and more playing comfort. Other high-end details of the PS14ce include colorful paua edging, a cocobolo backstrap, and an elaborate Nouveau vine fretboard inlay complemented by elegant headstock torch and bridge inlays. Offered with Gotoh Gold tuners and a bone nut and saddle, it also has a Venetian cutaway for even more playing ease.

Grand Audiotrium

The PS14ce features Taylor's most popular and versatile body shape, the mid-size Grand Auditorium, which arrived in 1994 bearing refined proportions that fell between a Dreadnought and Grand Concert. While the bigger Dreadnought was traditionally considered a flatpicker's guitar and the smaller Grand Concert catered to fingerstylists, the GA was designed to deliver on both fronts. The shape produced an original acoustic voice that was big enough to handle medium-strength picking and strumming, yet with impressive balance across the tonal spectrum, especially in the midrange, producing clear, well-defined notes that suited both strumming and fingerstyle playing. The GA's overall presence tracks well with other instruments both in a studio mix and on stage, and singer-songwriters have embraced its utility both for composing and traveling with one guitar. Many people want a single guitar that can cover a variety of styles, which is why the GA continues to be Taylor's bestselling shape. If you want a great all-purpose guitar, the multi-dimensional GA won't let you down.

Cocobolo
Cocobolo is a dense, stiff tropical hardwood with a fairly bright tone. Sonically, it's similar to koa, but resonates a little deeper on the low end, although it doesn't have quite the full low end of rosewood or ovangkol. Fast and responsive, with moderate note decay, it's articulate with lots of note distinction. It really pairs well with what the body shape is doing, blending the low end and midrange of the body with the wood's brightness. It goes well with a wide range of playing styles and is ideal for players who want a brighter rosewood sound with a little less low end and a little more treble zing.

Expression System 2
The Taylor Expression System 2 (ES2) is a revolutionary pickup design that delivers the latest in Taylor's ongoing innovation in acoustic guitar amplification. The heart of the Expression System 2 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.

Taylor CV Bracing with Relief Rout
Thie PS14ce incorporates the relief rout and additional refinements, including subtle contouring differences in the scalloping. In general, guitars with CV bracing sound fuller and fatter without giving up articulation. They are also slightly louder. Taylor's patented relief rout is a tone-enhancing voicing technique in which a groove is carved along the inside edges of the top. This groove is similar in function to the re-curve on a violin - it "loosens up" the edges of the top, generating extra flexibility without sacrificing structural integrity. The result is increased bass and volume with a balanced tone.

Venetian Cutaway
Standard on all "ce" models in the Presentation Series, the Venetian cutaway is known for its soft, round lines. The sloping peak of the cutaway will vary depending on the shape of the guitar. In the case of the PS14ce Grand Auditorium, the guitar will have a steeper slope.
