This special-edition 914ce has a gorgeous milagro Brazilian rosewood body for enhanced projection, better sustain, and a custom look, with the balanced mids and shimmering highs of a Sitka spruce top. Taylor optimized the 914ce's wood thickness and bracing patterns to give you powerful lows, crisp highs, and exceptional balance across the entire spectrum. Thanks to its onboard Taylor Expression System 2 electronics, the 914ce sounds fantastic when you plug in. Take it from Sweetwater - you'll love the Taylor 914ce.

The balanced tone and premium looks of Sitka spruce on milagro Brazilian rosewood

The milagro tree is the source of the premium Brazilian rosewood used in this special-edition acoustic's back and sides. Its distinct patterning and glassy sustain take the 914ce's look and sound to a whole new level. According to Taylor, this is among the best Brazilian rosewood that Bob Taylor and Andy Powers have seen in their guitar-building careers. It's called milagro (translation: "miracle") for a reason, Bob says. "This is the kind of Brazilian rosewood guitar builders would have used 100 years ago on pre-war guitars. It's as fine-grained as spruce, with a lot of grain lines per inch. When you tap it, it's like a piece of glass. It has an incredible tap tone." A standard Sitka spruce top adds projection and top-end sparkle for great balance and articulation that shine in the studio. Standard 900-series appointments, such as intricate Ascension fingerboard inlays, ebony binding with koa/paua purfling, and a striking paua soundhole rosette add a touch of flash to the guitar.

A richer, more vibrant voice than ever before thanks to customized bracing

You'll notice that the Taylor 914ce boasts exceptionally vibrant tones with a unique character. Taylor went back to the drawing board and redesigned their bracing patterns to get the optimum response out of each of their iconic body shapes. Taylor even strengthened side bracing to add rigidity to the sides and enhance top and back movement. In the words of luthier Andy Powers, the updated Advanced Performance bracing pattern gives the updated 914ce a "nice, cushy swell and long sustain, even with a delicate touch."

Grand Auditorium body style gives you exceptional presence

Taylor's beloved Grand Auditorium body style, featured on the 914ce, 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 914ce'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. At Sweetwater, we love expressive and toneful acoustic guitars, and the Taylor 914ce acoustic-electric definitely fits that bill.

Cutting-edge Taylor Expression System 2 electronics

If you play plugged in, then you're going to love the Taylor Expression System 2 (ES2) electronics built into your 914ce. The key to this fantastic system is the 3-section proprietary pickup located behind the saddle. Because of where it's positioned and how it's integrated into the 914ce's saddle, the ES2 pickup provides you with remarkably clear and accurate sound. In addition to a master volume control, a pair of tone controls lets you tweak your highs and lows to get the sound you need, and a discreet phase switch offers vital onboard feedback suppression.

  • 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
  • Gorgeous koa/paua purfling and Ascension inlays add a touch of elegance

Customer Reviews

5/5

Absolutely Prodigious

I've been searching for the sound the Milagro Brazilian Rosewood produces since 1993. I've owned Koa, Cocobolo, Brazilian Rosewood, Mun Ebony, Mahogany, and Maple solid wood guitars. All of these woods are very good and offer many opportunities to be used to express their unique sounds. But truly I was blown away by the incredible warm, extremely diverse, and very balanced sound the Milagro Brazilian Rosewood delivers. It truly covers the frequency of the lows, mid, and high notes very well. I play many styles of music but this guitar has allowed me to really be passionate about sharing my unique style freely without distorting the sound due to my aggressive nature on some songs. I was so impressed with the Milagro Brazilian Rosewood I had an opportunity to make a second purchase for the Milagro Brazilian Rosewood Grand Auditorium and without delay I absolutely made the purchase. This is an extremely rare wood to find any guitar builder building but equally rare to find being sold anywhere. Should the opportunity present itself I encourage strongly this purchase. Please consider that the Milagro Brazilian Rosewood is my personal preference and I know that there are many very prodigious woods that offer personal flavors that meet the needs of each persons style. This is my favorite wood that absolutely offers the most balanced well rounded sound for my personal style. This is not a guitar I will use to play live performances with rather use it to record with only. But don't be fooled as this guitar is one that begs for attention and is extremely addictive. I play my Milagro Brazilian Rosewood guitars daily and truly look forward to the next day when I can play them again. My purchase and comment of this guitar is not about creating an argument that the Milagro Brazilian Rosewood is better than many of the phenomenal other solid wood guitars built today. It's simply a personal observation by a very fortunate and very blessed person who was able to make this rare purchase. I understand that different genres of music almost require a specific wood to be used. My style of music is very diverse and influenced by alternative rock to bluegrass and absolutely everything in the middle. I've found the Milagro Brazilian Rosewood to be the perfect compilation of many incredible solid wood guitars wrapped into one very prodigious wood. But the Milagro Brazilian Rosewood also compliments my own unique original style as well. In fact it has truly given me my own identity because of it's incredible unique sound. Because I play many styles and have created my own unique style I do currently own Cocobolo and Mun Ebony solid wood guitars. Strongly consider that these guitars are an investment and need to be taken care of with a great deal of appreciation. I always keep my guitars at 47% to 53% humidity and have placed hygrometers in each guitar case to assure accurate constant humidity. Truly the Milagro Brazilian Rosewood is one of many great examples of Gods hand in creation and the beauty that come from within. I hope you find this review to be helpful and that it might give you a better understanding about your personal decision to make or not make this purchase. And finally I can't complete this review without giving a shoutout to the greatest Sweetwater Sales Rep I've had the absolute tremendous pleasure of doing business with since I made my first purchase at Sweetwater in 2005. Truly I've been blessed to work with really awesome folks at Sweetwater who have all had a great deal of knowledge and strengths respectively. But when I received an introductory call from Jimmy Hart for the first time I was very impressed with his immediate devotion to my personal musical needs. Truly I know there are many amazing folks at Sweetwater that work together to make every purchase and experience a positive and memorable one. I've been blessed to work with many but truly none like Jimmy Hart. Honestly I love this dude like family and I truly know Jimmy Hart far greater than just another guy that creates and ships an order for me. Jimmy Hart truly delivers a musical buying experience that is second to none. I'm honored and proud to call Jimmy Hart a friend and trusted music compadre.
