Combining elegant aesthetics with tone-enhancing details, the 700 Series is Taylor’s incredibly popular class of rosewood guitars. The 714ce acoustic-electric Grand Auditorium features revolutionary V-Class bracing, which 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. If you’re a guitarist who appreciates the robust lows and crisp highs of rosewood, you’ll relish how well-mannered the overtones are as your notes bloom. While you delight in its beautiful tone, your eyes will savor the 714ce’s tasteful appointments.
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.
Taylor’s beloved Grand Auditorium body style, featured on the 714ce, employs the width and depth of a dreadnought. But its waist is narrower, which gives Grand Auditorium–bodied acoustic guitars a sleeker look with more treble zing. The 714ce’s Grand Auditorium body style also helps to sharpen the definition of each note, balancing out nicely with the excellent projection of its Lutz spruce top.
