714ce LTD (2019)
Capitalizing on the opportunity to play with new tonewood combinations for Taylor's limited edition guitars, this 2019 714ce LTD features a unique combination of Indian rosewood back and sides with a sinker redwood top.
Indian rosewood is an all-star tonewood with a vibrant sonic personality that ranges from warm and responsive in the bass range to rich and shimmery on the treble end, with a scooped midrange that makes it an ideal wood choice for guitarists who sing while they play. Sinker redwood, though, might be even more alluring sourced from sunk logs found in California riverbeds, this tonewood takes on a gorgeous striped red hue and a tone profile with serious attitude, often described as cedar on steroids. You’ll find much of cedar’s warmth and soft-touch response here, plus the added power and headroom that sinker redwood brings.
This model is also outfitted with V-Class bracing for enhanced volume and sustain, which also helps pull out more of rosewood’s natural overtonal complexity. Artfully detailed with abalone inlays and koa body binding, this limited edition 714ce is truly a rare find, and includes ES2 electronics and a hardshell case.
Taylor’s signature shape embodies the ultimate all-purpose acoustic.
Tight grain structure and cross-grain stiffness produce a bold and brilliant response with warm overtones. Think cedar on steroids.
The tonewood superstar. Popular, traditional, and versatile, Bob Taylor puts Indian rosewood among the greatest tonewoods ever.
Expression System 2
The Expression System 2 captures more of a guitar’s dynamic properties using a breakthrough behind-the-saddle design.
The Venetian cutaway is known for its soft, round lines. The sloping peak of the cutaway will vary depending on the shape of the guitar.
A revolutionary design that balances the flexibility and stability of the top, V-Class bracing produces unmatched sustain, volume, and intonation.
