Taylor 314ce Grand Auditorium GA Acoustic/Electric Guitar
Includes Taylor hard case
 
The richness of the Taylor's solid-wood acoustic experience begins with the 300 Series. Sapele shares mahogany's lively tonal response and, together with a gloss-finish Sitka spruce top, rings out with a brightness and clarity that give these guitars a definitive Taylor voice. Black binding flanks sapele's ribbon-like grain, with large pearl fretboard dots adding a traditional touch.
 
Taylor's signature GA shape embodies the ultimate all-purpose acoustic.

Taylor's most popular and versatile body shape, the mid-size Grand Auditorium arrived in 1994 bearing refined proportions that fell between a Dreadnought and Grand Concert. While the bigger Dreadnought was traditionally considered a flatpicker's guitar and the smaller Grand Concert catered to fingerstylists, the GA was designed to deliver on both fronts. The shape produced an original acoustic voice that was big enough to handle medium-strength picking and strumming, yet with impressive balance across the tonal spectrum, especially in the midrange, producing clear, well-defined notes that suited both strumming and fingerstyle playing. The GA's overall presence tracks well with other instruments both in a studio mix and on stage, and singer-songwriters have embraced its utility both for composing and traveling with one guitar. Many people want a single guitar that can cover a variety of styles, which is why the GA continues to be Taylor's bestselling shape. If you want a great all-purpose guitar, the multi-dimensional GA won't let you down.

Sapele
WOOD
Sapele
An outstanding all-purpose, sustainable tonewood. 
It's sometimes mistakenly referred to as African mahogany because it closely resembles the West African wood khaya, which is commercially known as African mahogany. Sapele is a highly sustainable, relatively fast-growing wood. Tonally, it does everything that mahogany does, with a little extra treble zing. 
Forward Shifted with Relief Rout
BRACING
Forward Shifted with Relief Rout
All of Taylor's bracing for steel-string models is a form of X-bracing. The "X" provides a continuous flow of strength from the upper bout to the lower bout, which provides rigidity in spite of the soundhole's location in the middle of the soundboard. This version shifts the X forward (closer to the soundhole) and incorporates Taylor's patented relief rout, which is a tone-enhancing voicing technique in which a groove is carved along the inside edges of the top. This groove is similar in function to the re-curve on a violin - it "loosens up" the edges of the top, generating extra flexibility without sacrificing structural integrity. The result is increased bass and volume with a balanced tone. 
These refinements enable more of the top to vibrate, enhancing the tone.

Expression System
ELECTRONICS
Expression System
Faithfully amplify the warm acoustic sound of your guitar. Years of research brought Taylor to a simple realization: Nothing sounds as true and musical as a microphone. With that as a starting point, Taylor's David Hosler led the team responsible for the Expression System's breakthrough technology. Utilizing a unique Dynamic Body Sensor® mounted to the soundboard, a Dynamic String Sensor® embedded beneath the fretboard, and a discrete preamp, the advanced ES technology is unlike any other guitar pickup system.
