The 900 Series stands out as Taylor's most luxurious class of rosewood guitars, blending a raft of tone-enhancing details with premium aesthetic features. This limited 914ce is distinctive for its gorgeous and elaborate 'Cindy' inlay, while its tonal properties create an even more dramatic impression. This very rare limited model offers a unique blend of Andy Power's design improvements with one of Taylor Guitars' most stunning guitars of the past.
The 914ce acoustic-electric Grand Auditorium boasts V-Class bracing, which functions as a new sonic engine for the guitar. Not only does it enhance the volume and sustain, it also changes the soundboard movement in a way that improves the guitar's natural intonation, or "in-tuneness." The result is more power in the upper register and more harmonic agreement between all fretted notes, which helps chord voicings sing like never before. The rich sound comes from the pairing of the finest sets of East Indian Rosewood that Taylor Guitars offers along with a stunning bear-claw Engelman spruce top. No longer offered in Taylor Guitars' lineup due to scarcity, Engelmann Spruce produces a mature, smoother tone compared to Sitka Spruce with strength and clarity to match the guitar's visual beauty.
Premium features include a radius ebony armrest that makes your picking / strumming arm more comfortable, along with Gotoh 510 tuners, whose 21:1 gear ratio allows for precise tuning. Refined appointments include ebony binding, the famous "Cindy" inlay in paua and pearl, a paua rosette with koa and ebony purfling, and paua/koa trim along much of the body and neck. All V-Class guitars feature a black graphite nut and a new guitar label that bears the signature of master guitar designer Andy Powers. Includes Taylor hardshell case
