Taylor 514ce V Class Bracing electro acoustic guitar


THIS IS AN EX-DEMO GUITAR AND HAS A COUPLE OF EXTREMELY MINOR DINGS FROM BEING IN THE SHOWROOM. One small ding on the top of the guitar on the upper bout and two on the bottom by the endpin socket (looks like it has had impact with another guitars headstock) nothing has broken through the wood but this is just worth noting.

This is the latest version of the Taylor 514ce guitars featuring the new “V Class” bracing. A beautifully crafted guitar offering superb tone and playability.

Here at Guitar Mania we take great pride in our Taylor guitars. Every one gets check and set up as required so they have a great action as well as sounding great. They are all stored in a humidity controlled room so that they stay that way too. Jon, our in-house Taylor Guru is in charge of the set ups and general well being of these lovely guitars. He is a Master Level factory trained technician so rest assured you’re in good hands. We have a thriving Taylor Service Centre that he takes care of and our after sales service is second to none.
If you have tried to save money and bought from somewhere online and found your action is high, it’s most likely because it’s been stored in a damp draughty warehouse or cellar and especially applicable to this country, been exposed to excess humidity. This causes the body to swell up and becomes apparent by a high string height (action). You won’t get that here.
All Taylor guitars are stored in a humidity controlled environment.
They are all set up and checked over when they arrive and again before dispatch.
Buy in confidence !

Here’s what Taylor have to say about this specific model of Taylor 514ce V-Class:

Cedar’s warm midrange overtones and quick response make it a coveted top wood among fingerstylists and other players with a lighter touch. On this mahogany/cedar cutaway Grand Auditorium, V-Class bracing lifts those sonic virtues to new heights, serving up an even more powerful all-around response with billowing sustain. Add to that the bundle of sonic refinements that V-Class brings, including more powerful notes all the way up the fretboard and greater in-tuneness between the notes (thanks to a more orderly response from the top), and you’ve got a guitar that can cover a lot of ground. Mahogany’s naturally dry, focused voice emphasizes the midrange, lending a warm, clear punch that strummers, blues players will especially appreciate. Appointments include faux tortoise shell binding and pickguard, a faux tortoise/ivoroid rosette, and our striking Century fretboard inlay scheme in grained ivoroid with a new peghead inlay to complement the motif. With onboard Taylor ES2 electronics, you can count on natural-sounding amplified acoustic tone whenever you need it. The guitar also features a Venetian cutaway for upper-fretboard access, and ships in a deluxe hardshell case.
