The PS14ce Grand Auditorium  from Taylor's Presentation Series represents the finest craftsmanship, design innovation, and musicality that Taylor has to offer. This PS14ce is made with a sinker redwood top (sourced from logs submerged in California riverbeds) and solid Tasmanian blackwood back and sides.  This rare tonewood combination produces a sound unlike any other acoustic guitar. Blackwood's power and midrange focus make it a natural partner for redwood's wide dynamic range and tonal warmth, and V-Class bracing adds volume and sustain that allow the natural qualities of these materials to bloom as notes resonate. 

The PS14ce also features a radiused ebony armrest, while premium Gotoh 510 tuners provide a precise 21:1 gear ratio. Aesthetically, this model is adorned with ebony binding, a single-ring paua rosette, mother-of-pearl and paua fretboard inlays in our Nouveau pattern, and a glossy finish complemented with a shaded edgeburst treatment that brings out Tasmanian blackwood's naturally stunning grain pattern. Built to shine in the studio, on stage, or at home, this is truly an heirloom-quality instrument worthy of generations of play.

Comes in a Deluxe Hardshell Case.

• Grand Auditorium Shape - Taylor's signature shape embodies the ultimate all-purpose acoustic.
• Sinker Redwood Top Woods - Tight grain structure and cross-grain stiffness produce a bold and brilliant response with warm overtones. Think cedar on steroids.
• Tasmanian Blackwood Body Woods - Blackwood produces a strong volume, with a focused midrange and rich top-end shimmer.
• The Expression System 2 captures more of a guitar's dynamic properties using a breakthrough behind-the-saddle design.
• 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.
