The Grand Auditorium from Taylor's new Builder's Edition collection features Hawaiian koa back and sides paired with a torrefied Sitka spruce top. The V-Class bracing boosts the volume evenly across the tonal spectrum, increases the sustain, and improves the natural intonation of the guitar by creating a more orderly response from the soundboard. The ergonomic body contours of the Builder's Edition is enhances your playing comfort. Details include a beveled armrest, beveled body edge treatment, and a reshaped cutaway that flows smoothly into the heel and incorporates a finger bevel where the cutaway meets the soundboard. This creates a more fluid path to the guitar's upper-register notes for your fretting hand. Other refined touches include "silent" satin finish, which helps quiet the incidental noise against the guitar body, and a gorgeous new Kona burst that highlights the natural beauty of the figured koa back and sides. Inset koa/paua top and back trim adds a beautiful sparkle that complements the new Spring Vine fretboard inlay. In every way, this K14ce acoustic guitar embodies the ultimate player's guitar and testifies to the benefits of innovative craftsmanship.

• Sitka Spruce Top Woods - The soundboard choice for most guitars, Sitka spruce produces a broad dynamic range and accommodates a versatile range of playing styles.
