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.

414ce $2,399

  • Stika Spruce Top
  • Ovangkal Back and Sides
  • V-Class Bracing
  • Taylor ES2 Pickup System
  • Hard Case

Our cutaway acoustic/electric Grand Auditorium 414ce has long been a staple of gigging and recreational players thanks to its musical versatility and clean, workmanlike aesthetic. Crafted with back and sides of solid African ovangkol and a solid Sitka spruce top, the 414ce now also features our V-Class bracing, a game-changing sonic engine that powers these tonewoods to produce more volume, longer sustain, and stronger projection. The more orderly movement of the top, courtesy of the new bracing design, also improves the intonation up and down the neck, making chords sing like never before, without sour notes or the “rub” of slight dissonance within certain chords. The difference comes through loud and clear, whether you’re on the couch, recording into a mic, or plugged in at a gig. The ovangkol/Sitka pairing yields a mix of powerful midrange frequencies, strong, clear treble notes, and deep yet balanced lows, and together with V-Class, make this a superb all-around guitar. Fingerpickers, flatpickers and strummers each will find something to love here. Appointments include crisp white binding, Diamond fretboard/peghead inlays in Italian acrylic, and proprietary ES2 electronics. The guitar ships in a deluxe hardshell case. Like  Tweet  Email

614ce Builders Edition $3,999

  • Torrefied Sitka Spruce Top
  • Big Leaf Maple Back and Sides
  • V- Class Bracing
  • Taylor ES2 Pickup System
  • Stain Finish
  • Gotoh 510 Tuners
  • Hard Case

Taylor design guru Andy Powers conceived our Builder’s Edition collection to deliver a next-level, player-centric experience in both feel and sound. Each model in this family is the equivalent of his director’s cut version of its standard model counterpart, boasting premium woodworking details that refine the playing comfort on both the body and neck. The Builder’s Edition 614ce features our popular Grand Auditorium body, a torrefied Sitka spruce top, back and sides of figured Big Leaf maple, and our patented V-Class bracing. That combination yields an ultra-responsive, player-reflective sound, elevating maple’s natural transparency in a way that can sound warm, bright or whatever a player’s hands decide. The V-Class architecture improves the volume, sustain and projection, and creates more harmonic agreement between notes by putting the top more in tune with the strings. Our proprietary roasting process for the Sitka spruce top lowers the damping effect and helps deliver a more played-in tone. Ergonomic body details (exclusive to Builder’s Edition) include a beveled armrest with beveled body edge treatment; a double-carved cutaway that allows fluid access to the higher frets without the need to change one’s hand position; and our new Silent Satin finish, which reduces contact noise for a cleaner overall sound. Gold Gotoh 510 tuners (featuring a 21:1 gear ratio) complete the suite of tactile delights. Striking aesthetic details include a new Wild Honey Burst on the back, sides and neck (an optional burst-top version is also available), our mother-of-pearl Sceptor fretboard/peghead inlay, and inset maple/black body purfling with matching rosette. The guitar comes equipped with our ES2 electronics and ships in a deluxe hardshell case.

712ce 12-Fret $3,149

  • Solid Lutz Spruce Top
  • Indian Rosewood Back and Sides
  • Koa Binding
  • V-Class Bracing
  • Taylor ES2 System
  • Hard Shell Case

This cutaway 12-fret Grand Concert delivers a playing experience that blends physical comfort with surprising warmth and tonal power for a compact body. The 12-fret neck-to-body relationship shifts the bridge position on the soundboard, where it articulates the top in a way that produces more midrange punch. V-Class bracing has been added to this year’s models, boosting this compact guitar’s volume and sustain with overall improvements to tonality and musicality. The rosewood/Lutz spruce wood pairing yields a pleasing blend of sonic detail and dynamic range. The Grand Concert body makes for a clear, responsive voice that fingerstyle players will love, along with the hand-friendly 24-7/8-inch scale length. The compact body also keeps the overtones in check, making this a great choice for recording or the stage, especially with Taylor’s natural-sounding ES2 acoustic electronics and the new bracing scheme on board. Wood-rich appointments include Hawaiian koa binding, a herringbone-style rosette featuring Douglas fir with maple/black accents, and bias-cut Douglas fir top trim, while the “weathered brown” pickguard design complements the earthy color tones of the rosewood and wood trim.

714ce $2,999

  • Solid Lutz Spruce Top
  • Indian Rosewood Back and Sides
  • Koa Binding
  • V-Class Bracing
  • Taylor ES2 Pickup System
  • Hard Shell Case

A versatile instrument suitable for a range of musical applications, the Grand Auditorium 714ce boasts a rich and dynamic voice. The Lutz spruce top responds with the sonic power and headroom of old-growth Adirondack spruce, with an extra splash of warmth across the tonal spectrum. Together with Taylor’s patented V-Class bracing scheme and solid Indian rosewood back and sides, this guitar resonates with spectacular power, clarity and sustain. One of the most inspiring attributes of the bracing architecture is the noticeably enhanced in-tuneness of the notes, with more harmonic agreement among chords and extra girth in upper-register notes. The result is a balanced, textured sound that’s rich in tonal nuance with enough dynamic range to support hard hitters and soft pickers alike. Aesthetically, the 714ce sports an aesthetic that balances rootsy and refined elements, featuring wood-rich details like koa binding, a herringbone-style Douglas fir/maple rosette, and bias-cut Douglas fir top trim, along with abalone Reflections fretboard and peghead inlays and a “weathered brown” pickguard. The guitar ships with ES2 electronics in a deluxe hardshell case.

717e Builders Edition $3,099

  • Solid Lutz Spruce Top
  • Indian Rosewood Back and Sides
  • V-Class Bracing
  • Taylor ES2 Pickup System
  • Satin Finish
  • Deluxe Hard Shell Case

Part of Taylor’s inaugural class of Grand Pacific guitars, the Builder’s Edition 717e builds on a long tradition of rosewood/spruce dreadnoughts but breaks new ground with an entirely new Taylor sound. The round-shoulder dreadnought shape, featuring Taylor’s award-winning V-Class bracing, produces warm, seasoned acoustic tone in which individual notes overlap and blend smoothly together, while the low-end power common among dreadnoughts boasts greater clarity here. V-Class brings extra punch and sustain, along with improved intonation and musicality across the entire frequency spectrum. Together with rosewood’s harmonic complexity and the played-in sound of the torrefied spruce top, players can expect rich, luxurious tonal character from top to bottom. It’s a voice comfortably rooted in a traditional sound, yet updated to offer more expressive musical range. As a Builder’s Edition model, the 717e also sports an array of premium, player-friendly features: chamfered body edges, rolled fretboard edges, and a new compound-carve neck profile, whose contours match the natural adjustments in the player’s hand position when moving up and down the fretboard. Even the bridge design was refined to add a more ergonomic feel for the player’s pick hand. Taylor’s noise-reducing Silent Satin finish displays the muted sheen of an older guitar, while elegantly understated appointments include mother-of-pearl Arrowhead fretboard and peghead inlays, with sapele binding. This edition also features our stage-ready ES2 electronics.

This Deluxe edition of our 800 Series Grand Concert checks all the boxes to inspire fingerstyle players and anyone seeking a comfortable feel and rich acoustic tone. This year brings the addition of V-Class bracing, our new internal architecture that drives the 812ce DLX to produce greater projection, longer sustain, and a more musical tone thanks to improved intonation. The bracing design allows more of rosewood’s natural warmth and harmonic complexity to shine through, as notes bloom and resonate with rich overtone texture. A solid Sitka spruce top delivers top-end sparkle, while rosewood’s slightly scooped mids make this small-bodied acoustic perfect for playing alongside vocals. A Venetian cutaway puts more upper register notes within reach of your fretting fingers. Refined appointments include maple binding and back strip, rosewood edge trim, an ergonomic radius armrest, rosewood pickguard, and mother-of-pearl Element fretboard inlays.
