This edition of the rosewood/spruce 714ce showcases the smooth golden-brown gradient of our Western Sunburst top, which adds a harmonious visual element to the roots-rich aesthetic of the redesigned 700 Series. The guitar features Taylor’s popular Grand Auditorium body style, renowned for its musical versatility, and sports a sonic upgrade to a Lutz spruce top with updated Performance bracing and other voicing enhancements. The result is bolder, more robust sound with a more prominent fundamental focus to balance rosewood’s natural bell-like overtone shimmer. Fresh appointments suggest a modern Americana vibe, with earthy yet refined touches that include Hawaiian koa binding, a herringbone-inspired rosette of Douglas fir with maple/black accents, bias-cut Douglas fir top trim, and a “weathered brown” pickguard design that suggests the patina of worn leather. The guitar also features an elegant Venetian cutaway and Taylor’s stage-ready ES2 pickup and preamp for natural-sounding amplified tone.
