Taylor 300 Series Nylon String Acoustic-Electric Guitar with Sitka Spruce Top, Sapele Body and ES-N Electronics in Natural Finish

Taylor 314ce-N is a nylon-string Grand Auditorium that balances sapele's bright and lively tone with the naturally mellow flavors of the nylon sound. It's a great option for players who favor the comfort and intimate feel of a small-body acoustic and crave modern steel-string features like a cutaway and an onboard pickup on a nylon-string guitar. Appointments include black binding, Italian acrylic dot fretboard inlays and a 3-ring rosette. The guitar incorporates a Venetian cutaway, comes equipped with Taylor's ES-N pickup and ships in a Taylor deluxe hardshell case.

Grand Auditorium shape
While the bigger Dreadnought was traditionally considered a flatpicker's guitar and the smaller Grand Concert catered to fingerstylists, Grand Auditorium was designed to deliver on both fronts. This shape provides an original acoustic voice 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 suit both strumming and fingerstyle playing. Grand Auditorium'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. If you want a great all-purpose guitar, the multi-dimensional Grand Auditorium won't let you down.

Venetian cutaway
Taylor's elegant cutaways add to a guitar's shapeliness and broaden your playing range. The Venetian cutaway is known for its soft, round lines. The Grand Auditorium Venetian cutaway on this model features a somewhat flatter slope.

Sitka spruce top wood
As a guitar soundboard, Sitka spruce is the tonewood standard of the modern era. Its combination of strength and elasticity translates into a broad dynamic range, yielding crisp articulation and allowing for everything from aggressive strumming and flatpicking to fingerpicking.

Sapele body wood
Sapele is a highly sustainable, relatively fast-growing wood. Tonally, it does everything that mahogany does, with a little extra treble zing. Like ovangkol, it's a great all-purpose tonewood that will deliver a consistent, balanced tone in a variety of playing applications from fingerstyle to strumming.

ES-N electronics
Taylor ES-N is a single-source, under-saddle transducer featuring a preamp and tone controls that were customized to complement the nylon string voice. Standard Expression System control knobs enable plenty of tone-shaping and preserve the natural design aesthetic.
