Overview

Celebrate 50 years of Taylor with this one-of-a-kind anniversary Grand Auditorium.

Celebrate 50 years of Taylor Guitars' craftsmanship with the 414ce 50th Anniversary Special-Edition. This stunning Grand Auditorium acoustic-electric guitar features premium tonewoods and appointments hand-selected by Master Guitar Designer Andy Powers to deliver a robust, complex tone with extended sustain. The solid sinker redwood top produces a warm, played-in sound with a midrange bloom, while the solid Indian rosewood back and sides provide a strong bass response and ringing highs. Together, these woods create an exceptionally versatile and rich voice.

Sinker Redwood Top Unlocks Dynamic Sound

The 414ce 50th Anniversary Special Edition's sinker redwood top generates a warm yet punchy tone with rich overtones. Less dense than spruce, sinker redwood produces a played-in sound right out of the case. Its midrange bloom adds complexity to the guitar's voice, reacting dynamically to changes in your playing style.

Play with Ease Thanks to a Premium Neck

The 414ce 50th Anniversary Special Edition's mahogany neck has an oval profile and smooth ebony fingerboard that feels familiar under your fingers, allowing seamless transitions between acoustic and electric playing. Its 9.5" radius and 20 frets provide comfort and access to higher notes. You'll appreciate this neck's premium feel and playability as much as its resonant tonewoods.

Shape Your Tone with Onboard Electronics

Taylor's revolutionary ES2 electronics system lets you amplify the 414ce 50th Anniversary Special Edition with stunning results. Featuring three uniquely positioned piezo pickups and an "audiophile-grade" preamp, this system accurately conveys the guitar's complex acoustic properties at high volumes. Easily blend piezo and preamp tones using the volume and tone controls to match the needs of any musical situation. Whether performing live or recording in the studio, you'll get natural, dynamic sound from this innovative pickup design.

Luxurious Appointments Honor Five Decades of Guitar Building

As a tribute to Taylor's 50-year legacy of guitar craftsmanship, the 414ce 50th Anniversary Special Edition is adorned with premium appointments. The sinker redwood top is framed by a beautiful shaded edgeburst and green abalone rosette. An engraved Victorian fingerboard inlay pattern and faux tortoise pickguard provide visual contrast. Gold Gotoh tuning machines, a commemorative 50th-anniversary truss rod cover and certificate of authenticity complete the luxurious aesthetic details. Overall, this guitar is as stunning to behold as it is to play.
