Taylor 900 Series

The 914ce acoustic-electric Grand Auditorium stands out as one of the most luxurious class of rosewood guitars, blending a raft of tone-enhancing details with premium aesthetic features.  It features v-class bracing which functions as a new sonic engine for the guitar that not only enhances the volume and sustain, it also changes the soundboard movement in a way that improves the guitar’s natural intonation.

Players who love the deep lows and sparkling highs of rosewood will appreciate how well behaved the overtones are.  Premium features include a beveled ebony armrest that makes your picking/strumming arm more comfortable, along with Gotoh 510 tuners, whose 21:1 gear ratio allows for precise tuning.  This model has a new guitar label that bears the signature of master guitar designer Andy Powers.

• Grand Auditorium Shape - Taylor’s signature shape embodies the ultimate all-purpose acoustic.
• Sitka SpruceTop Wood - The soundboard choice for most guitars, Sitka spruce produces a broad dynamic range and accommodates a versatile range of playing styles.
• Indian Rosewood Body Wood - The tonewood superstar. Popular, traditional, and versatile, Bob Taylor puts Indian rosewood among the greatest tonewoods ever.
• The Expression System 2 captures more of a guitar’s dynamic properties using a breakthrough behind-the-saddle design.
• Venetian Cutaway - The Venetian cutaway is known for its soft, round lines. The sloping peak of the cutaway will vary depending on the shape of the guitar.
• V-Class Bracing - A revolutionary design that balances the flexibility and stability of the top, V-Class bracing produces unmatched sustain, volume, and intonation.
