Special bracing ensures better intonation, sustain and volume.

Taylor Guitars' 414ce V-Class Special Edition Grand Auditorium acoustic-electric guitar represents the leading edge of acoustic guitar design. This premium instrument incorporates Taylor's groundbreaking V-Class bracing, a revolutionary new architecture that boosts volume, sustain and pitch accuracy. Paired with premium tonewoods, including a Sitka spruce top and Indian rosewood back and sides, the 414ce V-Class sings with a voice that's both complex and cohesive. Taylor's Expression System 2 electronics faithfully convey that peerless acoustic tone when amplified. Stylish special edition appointments like an abalone rosette, gold tuners and grained ivoroid binding provide the perfect finishing touch. The 414ce V-Class Special Edition is now available, ready to inspire musicians with its revolutionary acoustic performance.

V-Class Bracing Unlocks the Guitar's Full Potential

Taylor's patented V-Class bracing is a fundamental reimagining of the acoustic guitar's architecture. It creates an instrument that's louder and sustains better than traditional designs, with notes that ring truer. Chords sound more harmonious, with less discordance. The entire fretboard comes into alignment, making the 414ce V-Class easier to tune and keep in tune. Simply put, V-Class bracing helps the guitar fulfill its musical promise.

Premium Tonewoods Produce a Complex, Nuanced Voice

The 414ce V-Class Special Edition pairs a Sitka spruce top with Indian rosewood back and sides, a combination that's produced some of the most expressive acoustic guitars ever made. The Sitka top responds with power and articulation, while the rosewood back and sides add warmth, depth and ringing sustain. Together they yield an acoustic voice that's versatile enough for any style, with layers of harmonic complexity that continue to unfold the more you play.

Expression System 2 Provides Accurate Amplification

Taylor's ES2 pickup is a revolutionary design that captures the nuances of the 414ce V-Class Special Edition's tone when amplified. Its three-part bridge plate sensor picks up string and body vibrations with stunning realism. On-board tone controls provide intuitive control over bass, treble and volume. Whether on stage or recording in the studio, the ES2 pickup lets this guitar's peerless voice shine through.

Premium Appointments Complement an Inspired Design

As befits a special edition instrument, the 414ce V-Class dazzles with premium appointments like an abalone rosette, gold tuners, grained ivoroid binding and "Engraved Victorian" fretboard inlays. Together with the guitar's resonant voice and revolutionary V-Class bracing, these stylish touches make the 414ce V-Class Special Edition a guitar that's as inspiring to behold as it is to play.
