 Product Description

Limited Edition 414ce Black Limba

With Taylor’s 414ce Black Limba, you can have it all: effortless playability, mellifluous tone, and stunning visuals. The richly grained Sitka spruce top of this Limited Edition Grand Auditorium acoustic-electric guitar pairs beautifully with black limba back and sides to deliver a powerful, beautifully balanced sound with punchy midrange focus and clear treble — a sound forged by Taylor’s revolutionary V-Class Bracing and amplified flawlessly by the onboard Expression System 2 electronics. The 414ce is a perennial favorite and it’s easy to see — and hear — why. Black limba (also known as korina), a premium African hardwood rarely found on acoustic guitars, lends a unique voice and look to this Limited Edition 414ce.

V-Class bracing: a sonic revelation

Bracing is the internal framework of an acoustic guitar that helps shape its sound. Although X-bracing has been standard in acoustic guitars for over a century, it creates an innate conflict between two key elements of a guitar’s sound: volume and sustain. The guitar’s top (its soundboard) contributes to both. The flexibility of the top generates volume (projection), while its stiffness generates sustain. And with X-braced guitar tops, here’s where the tradeoff comes in: When something is made stiffer, its flexibility is reduced (and vice versa). V-Class bracing changes all that.

With Taylor’s V-Class bracing, an acoustic guitar top can be both stiff and flexible — for more volume and sustain. V-Class bracing provides stiffness parallel to the strings for more rigidity and, hence, sustain. Flexibility on either side generates the air movement necessary for robust projection. It‘s the best of both worlds. This groundbreaking innovation also improves intonation — not only producing notes that are louder and with longer sustain, but also more in tune with each other. V-Class bracing boosts volume evenly across the tonal spectrum, increases sustain, and improves the natural intonation of the instrument by creating a more synergistic response from the soundboard. This fosters a more harmonious relationship between the notes you play, helping chords to ring out in cohesive splendor. Pick up a Taylor with V-Class bracing and experience it for yourself.

Sitka spruce and black limba: tonewood alchemy

A quality acoustic guitar is all about the wood, and the Taylor 414ce serves up a classic tonewood cocktail with no compromises. The top is solid Sitka spruce for robust projection and crystalline note clarity. Black limba (korina), a premium African hardwood used for the back and sides of the 414ce, is tonally similar to mahogany, but its somewhat higher density tends to produce a slightly brighter sound with more high-end shimmer. The tonewood characteristics of the Taylor 414ce — together with its generous Grand Auditorium body — give it the power and nuance to accommodate a wide range of playing styles.

Comfortable Grand Auditorium body delivers power, presence, and note definition

The 414ce responds gracefully to a wide range of playing styles thanks to its medium-size Grand Auditorium body. Taylor’s beloved Grand Auditorium body style employs the width and depth of the dreadnought. However, its waist is narrower, which gives Grand Auditorium guitars a sleeker look and more treble zing. The Grand Auditorium body style also helps to focus and sharpen the definition of each note — a quality desirable in any musical genre. You’ll also find your Grand Auditorium guitar to be incredibly comfortable whether you’re playing seated or standing.

Cutting-edge Taylor Expression System 2 electronics

If you play plugged in, you’re going to love the Taylor Expression System 2 (ES2) electronics built into your 414ce. The key to this highly effective system is the 3-section proprietary pickup located behind the saddle. Because of where it’s positioned and how it’s integrated into the 414ce’s saddle, the ES2 pickup provides you with remarkably clear and accurate sound. In addition to a master volume control, a pair of tone controls lets you tweak your highs and lows to get the sound you need, and a discreet polarity switch offers vital onboard feedback suppression.
