Call us or Email Us to Order

Very gently used, in excellent playing condition. One of Taylor's most beloved flagship guitars, and for good reason! This one truly sings, with a solid Sitka top, solid Sapele back and sides, tropical mahogany neck, West African Crelicam Ebony fretboard with "gemstone" inlays, ES2 electronics, and lots more. This is a 2018 model with V-class bracing. A truly excellent guitar that will last for many years in the right hands. It's in excellent condition, with a few very light signs of wear, primarily just a couple light marks on the pickguard. Freshly set up and playing great; includes original hardshell case and owner's manual.

From Taylor:

Our popular Grand Auditorium 314ce is an acoustic workhorse that performs equally well in the practice room, recording studio, and on stage. This latest edition features our acclaimed V-Class bracing, a revolutionary innovation in acoustic sound that responds with greater musicality and harmonic agreement. By introducing a more orderly vibration to the guitar’s top, V-Class bolsters the sustain and volume to offer players a more dynamic voice to explore, while also resolving the minor intonation issues that players have long had to contend with. Together with a solid Sitka spruce top and solid sapele back and sides, you can expect a balanced and articulate blend of top-end brightness, midrange fullness, and low-end warmth that accommodates an array of playing styles. Appointments include black binding, Gemstone fretboard/peghead inlays in Italian acrylic, and satin-finish back and sides with a gloss top. A Venetian cutaway invites your fretting hand up the neck, while our proprietary ES2 electronics serve up faithful plugged-in tone. The guitar ships in a deluxe hardshell case.
