The entry point to Taylor's USA-made instrument line, now with V-class bracing.

This Taylor 314ce acoustic-electric guitar is an innovative instrument that fuses Taylor's signature Grand Auditorium body style with revolutionary V-Class bracing and premium tonewoods for a playing experience unlike any other. The 314ce's solid Sitka spruce top, and sapele back and sides, produce a robust voice with shimmering highs, rich lows and a punchy midrange. Taylor's groundbreaking V-Class bracing boosts volume, sustain and tuning across the fretboard for notes that bloom and decay with arresting clarity.

V-Class Bracing Unlocks New Potential

Taylor's patented V-Class bracing marks a bold step forward in acoustic design. This innovative bracing pattern frees the 314ce's top to vibrate with enhanced efficiency, resulting in notes that ring louder, longer and stay in tune better than ever before. Chords sound full, balanced and cohesive, while single notes sustain for what seems like forever. The 314ce sings with a voice that's dynamically complex yet harmonically rich.

The Ultimate All-Purpose Body Style

Taylor's original Grand Auditorium shape strikes a balance of robust volume, articulate tone and sleek aesthetics. The 314ce's narrowed waist and soft Venetian cutaway provide comfortable access to the upper frets, while its rounded shoulders produce a sound with shimmering highs, a punchy midrange and solid low end. Whether fingerpicked or strummed, the 314ce responds with a clear, balanced voice that suits any playing style.

Premium Woods for an Exceptional Foundation

The 314ce owes its resonant voice to a pairing of solid Sitka spruce and sapele. Sitka spruce is prized for its ability to produce crisp articulation and a broad dynamic range. Sapele shares tonal qualities with mahogany, yielding a sound with top-end shimmer, warm and woody lows and an overall musical balance. Together, these premium tonewoods give the 314ce a voice that only improves with age.

Plug in With the ES2 System

Taylor's Expression System 2 reproduces the 314ce's dynamic acoustic voice with exceptional clarity. This proprietary pickup system features three behind-the-saddle transducers blended with custom-designed preamp circuitry. Onstage or in the studio, the ES2 system delivers the natural sound of your 314ce with high headroom and tonal control. Adjustable bass, midrange and treble filters help you shape your tone for any musical situation.
