This guitar is in good condition with only some minor play wear. There is small crack at the end of the fretboard going into the body, it has been inspected and shouldn't be much of a concern if the guitar is kept humidified properly. All electronics are working and a full setup was done to the guitar as well as some fresh D'Addario EJ16 strings. Comes with the original hard shell case.

From Taylor

Taylor is pleased to bring you this Special Edition Taylor 414ce guitar with rosewood back and sides, and a host of custom elements. The acoustic/electric Grand Auditorium 414ce-R Special Edition responds well to an array of playing styles thanks to Taylor's flagship body shape and the classic pairing of rosewood and spruce. Rosewood lends a lively overtone sparkle to the treble notes, while the guitar's overall voice delivers a pleasing mix of warmth and tonal definition. Whether you like to strum, flatpick or play fingerstyle, this guitar makes an inspiring playing partner. Custom features include grained ivoroid binding, "Engraved Victorian" fretboard inlays, abalone rosette, and shaded edge burst finish. The guitar comes equipped with Taylor's Expression System 2 acoustic electronics along with a Venetian cutaway, and ships in a Taylor deluxe hardshell case. Also available in left handed model.

Special Features:

    • Abalone rosette
    • "Engraved Victorian" fretboard inlays with matching peghead inlay (first-ever for a Taylor)
    • Shaded Edge Burst finish
    • Gold hardware
    • Grained ivoroid binding

Grand Auditorium Shape
The Grand Auditorium is the most versatile and popular of Taylor's guitar shapes. Its well-defined midrange contributes to a clear and balanced tone. It's responsive enough for fingerstyle players and powerful enough for pickers and strummers to get a lively response. Think of it as a jack of all trades.

As a guitar soundboard, or top, Sitka spruce is the tonewood standard of the modern era. It's used on 85-90 percent of the guitars that Taylor makes. 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. Sitka spruce is Bob Taylor's personal favorite for an all-around great guitar.

One of the most popular and traditional guitar woods of all time, rosewood takes the basic sonic thumbprint of mahogany (which has a strong midrange) and expands it in both directions. Indian rosewood's sweeping frequency range at both ends of the tonal spectrum has made it one of the most popular and musically rich tonewoods. Its deep lows can assert a throaty growl, while bright, sparkling treble notes ring out with bell-like, high-fidelity clarity.

Expression System 2 Electronics
Taylor's breakthrough acoustic pickup marks a major advance in piezo technology thanks to a patented behind-the-saddle design. The unique placement of three piezo sensors captures a more dynamic range of acoustic sound and responds well in a variety of settings.
