Taylor 514ce LTD
This limited edition Grand Auditorium marks the first-time we’ve paired walnut with a torrefied spruce top. Our torrefaction process roasts the wood in a way that mimics the wood’s natural aging process, altering its cell structure to produce a sweeter, more responsive sound. Walnut’s tonal personality tends to combine some of maple’s transparency with the dry properties of mahogany. Together with the torrefied top and our Grand Auditorium body, players can expect a touch-sensitive response reminiscent of a walnut guitar that’s been played in. Tasteful appointments include mother-of-pearl Century fretboard inlays, faux tortoise binding, and an all-gloss body, with onboard Expression System® 2 electronics.
