An Acoustic-electric Nylon-String Taylor!

Taylor's 414e-N acoustic-electric guitar gives you a warm tone with the natural roundness of nylon strings. With a 414e-N, you get the combination of a gorgeous solid Sitka spruce top and a back and sides made of toneful ovangkol. You'll absolutely love the way your 414e-N guitar sounds unplugged, and since it comes loaded with Taylor's ES-N pickup system, it sounds fantastic when you play plugged in. A Grand Auditorium body style perfectly compliments the selection of tonewoods, adding powerful projection and a slight bump in the high end to the Taylor 414e-N acoustic-electric nylon-string guitar.

Taylor 414e-N Acoustic-electric Nylon-string Guitar at a Glance:
  • Choice tonewoods - Sitka spruce meets Ovangkol
  • Grand Auditorium body style gives you exceptional presence
  • Taylor ES-N electronics provide natural acoustic sound, even when you plug in
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-N, 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-N a voice all its own. The Taylor 414e-N also features an all-gloss finish and a Tropical American mahogany neck, which is lined with a smooth-playing ebony fingerboard.

Grand Auditorium body style gives you exceptional presence

Taylor's beloved Grand Auditorium body style, featured on the 414e-N, 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 414e-N's Grand Auditorium body style also helps to sharpen the definition of each note. Ultimately, from fingerpicking to medium strumming, the Grand Auditorium is a great body choice for nearly every playing style.

Taylor ES-N electronics provide natural acoustic sound, even when you plug in

Designed to capture every nuance of your playing style, the Taylor 414e-N's ES-N electronics system was built from the ground up for Taylor's nylon string guitars. It uses a single-source, under-saddle transducer and a special preamp system to faithfully reproduce your 414e-N's acoustic sound. What's more, there are a series of control knobs that give you excellent tone-shaping option, allowing you to further adapt your tone to any venue.

Taylor 414e-N Acoustic-electric Nylon-string Guitar Features:
