Choice tonewoods - Sitka spruce meets Ovangkol

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 414e, is a prime example of just that. It features time-proven Sitka spruce as its top - which gives you projection - while its body comprises Ovangkol. Ovangkol is an African tonewood with a striking olive-brown coloration and intensely varied grain. It offers a response somewhat similar to the warmth of rosewood - but gives the 414e a voice all its own. The Taylor 414e 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 414e, 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 414e'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 414e Acoustic-electric Guitar Features:
  • An acoustic-electric guitar with a bold yet smooth voice
  • Grand Auditorium body style gives you dreadnought-like projection with a more expressive upper register
  • Sitka spruce provides a bright and balanced tone
  • Ovangkol back and sides enhance richness and projection
  • Onboard Taylor Expression System electronics give you natural sound even when plugged in live
  • Hardshell case included
The Taylor 414e is a stellar choice for players of all styles - you get proven tonewoods, with the renowned Taylor Expression System!
