Taylor went back to the drawing board to give the 714ce-N nylon-string acoustic-electric guitar a stronger, more focused voice than ever. Its classic Grand Auditorium body shape is topped with Lutz spruce and features an innovative bracing pattern designed specifically for this body shape. This attention to detail creates loud, solid fundamental tone and exceptionally well-balanced tonality. The redesigned 714CE-N also uses protein glue, which enhances the overall solidity of the instrument for maximum vibrational transfer. And with Taylor's ES-N electronics onboard for natural plugged-in tone, the 714CE-N acoustic-electric guitar is an outstanding instrument for recording and live performance.
