This guitar features a solid Sitka Spruce top for brilliant high end and on the back you have a stunning piece of Quilted Sapele. While most people think of Sapele or Mahogany as a rather plain looking wood flamed versions do exist and just look at how cool it looks! Due to the wood changes this guitar will sound different when compared to your regular 514ce. By changing out the Western Red Cedar top with Sitka Spruce you get a much brighter sound with greater headroom which strumming and hybrid style players will absolutely adore. Combine that with the darker sounding Sapele back and you get a really balanced sound that never sounds to harsh or to boomy.

Quilted sapele’s unique figure adds a natural aesthetic flair to this limited edition cutaway Grand Auditorium. Sapele’s clear tone profile is similar to mahogany, with a splash of upper register chime, while the Sitka spruce top’s premium Adirondack spruce CV bracing bolsters the volume and sonic fullness across the tonal spectrum. Other premium features include a dramatic Florentine cutaway, a new rosewood/mother-of-pearl Capstone fretboard inlay, single ring rosewood/mother-of-pearl rosette, rosewood binding with curly maple top edge trim, rosewood back strip, and Gotoh Gold tuners, with Taylor’s natural-sounding Expression System 2 electronics for rich amplified tone. The guitar features a limited edition guitar label and ships in a Taylor deluxe hardshell case.
