From Our Research Team:
A Great-sounding Taylor - and a Lefty!Taylor's 314ce embodies a superb blend of classic tonewoods and modern electronics. With it, you get a gorgeous solid Sitka spruce top with sapele as its back and sides - ensuring excellent tone when unplugged. Yet, Taylor also added their renowned Taylor Expression electronics system, which makes the Taylor 314ce ripe for stage use, as well. And, whether you favor strum-style playing or fingerpicking you'll be equally delighted, as it features the treble-emphasized Grand Auditorium body style, which gives you excellent note definition, with the Taylor 314ce.
Taylor 314ce Left-handed Acoustic-electric Guitar at a Glance:
This is the left-handed version of the Taylor 314ce.
Choice tonewoods - Sitka spruce meets Sapele
When you pick up a Taylor, you can expect outstanding tone - and one of the leading reasons behind that signature Taylor voice is the use of high-quality tonewoods. This particular Taylor, the 314ce, is a prime example of just that. It features time-proven Sitka spruce as its top - which gives you projection - while its body comprises Sapele - a somewhat red-brown tonewood, quite similar to mahogany. The Taylor 314ce also features a Tropical American mahogany neck, which is lined with a smooth-playing ebony fingerboard.
Grand Auditorium body style, for exceptional treble zing
Taylor's beloved Grand Auditorium body style, featured on the 314ce, employs the width and depth of the Dreadnought. But, its waist is narrower, which gives Grand-Auditorium-bodied acoustic guitars a sleeker look, with more treble zing. The body style also helps to sharpen the definition of each note. Ultimately, from fingerpicking to medium strumming, the Grand Auditorium is a great choice for nearly every playing style.
Renowned Taylor Expression System electronics
Designed to faithfully reproduce your guitar's native tone, the Taylor 314ce's Expression System uses patented Dynamic Sensors to capture top and string vibration like never before. The Taylor ES system was created in partnership with renowned audio pioneer Rupert Neve - and the system is seamlessly integrated into the design of the guitar from the ground up. Onboard tone controls provide added flavor, or can be set flat for an uncolored, exceptionally clean amplified sound.
Taylor 314ce Finish: Satin with Gloss Top
The finish used to create this guitar's textured satin back and sides and lustrous gloss top was developed at Taylor for maximum durability and resistance to cold-checking. This ultraviolet-cured finish is also more environmentally friendly than traditional lacquer finishes.

Taylor 314ce (Left-Handed)
by Jesse from Cleveland, TxI have been wanting this guitar for several years now, after playing many shows with my old trusty Alvarez I bought and Ibanez which was a knee jerk reaction and after only a year and a half of suffer... read more [+]ing every night I finally decided it was time to make my move on the Taylor. I must say that has been my best decision in the 20+ years that I have been in the music industry. I am looking forward to playing this guitar for years to come. The assistance that I received from my Sweetwater Sales Engineer was second to none. I will definitely be ordering from Sweetwater again on future gear that I need. close [-]

by Jorge Lopez from San Juan, Puerto RicoBeing left-handed many times limits what is available to me. I came across the Taylor 314ce (Left-Handed) and it was love at first sight! I was counting minutes until it finally arrived. It certai... read more [+]nly makes a statement when you first see it. And once I started to play it I didn't want to put it down. The sounds are rich and it is very easy to play. It seems lighter than 41/2 lbs. which I like. The Taylor Expression System is all they said it would be and more. The Sapele Back and Sides add a beautiful quite richness and elegance to this guitar. This was my first time playing a Grand Auditorium Body Style, I must say it fit me like a glove. close [-]
