 Product Description

Limited Edition 614ce Maple

Combining elegant aesthetics with tone-enhancing details, Taylor’s 600 Series guitars are incredibly popular. The richly grained torrefied (specially roasted) Sitka spruce top of this Limited Edition Grand Auditorium acoustic-electric guitar pairs beautifully with maple 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 614ce is a perennial favorite and it’s easy to see — and hear — why. If you’re a guitarist who appreciates a more played-in tone, you’ll relish how the 614ce’s torrefied spruce top and maple back and sides work together to convey every nuance of your playing. While you delight in its beautiful tone, your eyes will savor the 614ce’s tasteful appointments.

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.

A tonewood combination that reflects your playing style

As a tonewood, maple is known for its sonic transparency, which makes it highly reflective of your personal playing style. Used for the back and sides of the 614ce, it is joined by a torrefied Sitka spruce top and Taylor’s tone-enhancing V-Class bracing, which takes the guitar’s native versatility to an entirely new level. The roasting process for the top delivers a more played-in tone and, together with the V-Class bracing and maple back and sides, gives you a highly responsive and expressive instrument with increased dynamic range, robust projection and sustain, and harmonic synergy when chording up the entire fingerboard. The 614ce is one of the most touch-sensitive models Taylor makes. Whether you play fingerstyle or strum in alternate tunings, this guitar conveys every nuance of your playing.

Grand Auditorium body style delivers exceptional presence

The 614ce 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 614ce. 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 instrument’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.
