To commemorate its 50th year creating top-tier guitars, Taylor is offering this limited-edition 314ce, a distinct instrument being offered as a part of this series that also features a Builder's Edition 814ce and an American Dream AD14ce, all offered with unique and limited specs. This Grand Auditorium-style acoustic stands out with premium updates and performance features, showcasing a torrefied Sitka Spruce top.
This 50th Anni beauty's torrefied top wood undergoes high-temperature baking to diminish the presence of oils, vapor, and natural compounds. This special roasting process creates a subtle visual darkness in the wood of the soundboard, complemented by a shaded edgeburst around the body and neck. Complementing the top of the guitar, the back and sides features a gorgeous sapele that boasts a prominent, vertical bookmatched woodgrain. A firestripe faux-tortoise pickguard acts as the focal point of the front of the guitar, and Taylor's inventive V-Class style bracing works in unison with the Sitka spruce of the top to make this guitar offer a classic Taylor resonance.
The neck is made of mahogany, and features a smoked eucalyptus fingerboard with a 15" radius, boasting Italian Acrylic Gemstone inlays and 20 frets. Coming fully equipped with an onboard Taylor Expression System 2 (ES2) system, this guitar is able to be plugged in and used for amplified performance, with controls for treble, bass, and volume providing versatility in shaping tone.
Featuring a beautiful gloss finish, gold tuners, black body binding and a 3-ring rosette with black and white purfling, the production of this instrument is limited to 1,974 guitars worldwide, and each one comes with a custom hardshell brown case whose beauty complements that of the guitar itself.
