The 414ce-R combines subtle aesthetics with profound tone-enhancing upgrades, and makes Taylor’s popular class of workhorse rosewood guitars now even more accessible. Featuring revolutionary V-Class bracing, which boosts both volume and sustain whilst providing a more even tonal response across the tonal spectrum with improved natural intonation, the industry-standard Grand Auditorium guitar just evolved. At its core, V-Class guitars create a more synergistic response from the soundboard by allowing it to bend and flex in a more natural motion. Solid rosewood back and side serve up a lovely blend of high-end articulation and low-end power, with a slightly scooped midrange that allows vocals to slide into the mix without clashing. Simple but striking appointments such as crisp white binding and a full-gloss body finish cement the 414ce-R's workmanlike aesthetic.
