Taylor 414CE Ser#1103218043
Near MINT condition. Light playing scratches on pickguard and slight marks from demonstrating the guitar the only things keeping this from being perfect; these minor cosmetic issues do not affect playability whatsoever.
2018 the last year of X-bracing on this model. All solid woods and made in USA with the premium Taylor hardshell case included . Sitka spruce top, ovangkol back and sides, mahogany neck, bound ebony fingerboard with pearl dots, ebony bridge, Expression System 2 electronics, Taylor-branded sealed-gear tuners.
Taylor’s 14 body shape is super popular for a reason; it can take whatever a player throws at it and it sounds great! Light fingerpicking? Sure. The response is sensitive allowing accurate hearing of the subtleties. Heavy flatpicking? Yes indeed! Huge projection that reaches the back of the room. Tone is bright with good cut making this a nice choice for an ensemble instrument. Bass notes are fat, you really have the best of both worlds with dreadnought bottom and grand concert cut all on board one instrument.
The Expression System 2 is Taylor’s latest pickup and preamp design. It features 3 piezo sensors that abut the back of the saddle which Taylor says offers a more natural sound as the saddle moves back and forth (not vertical like most common piezo systems which have a strip on the bottom of the saddle) and the adjustable sensors more accurately capture this. Controls are simple Volume, Bass and Treble controls.
Playability is fantastic with low fast action. The guitar speaks with a bold room filling voice, the playability is such that it encourages the player to reach for the extent of their capabilities making their playing the best it’s ever been.
Great for those wanting a top quality acoustic suitable for stage or studio.
