You are not getting anything less than top-notch with this guitar. It is a Taylor that will impress not only with its sound, but its beauty and even the instrument's quality.

Grand Auditorium Body
The 914ce sports a grand auditorium body, Taylor's most popular shape. Its popularity comes from its versatility, drawing elements from the dreadnought and grand concert and combining them into what we have today. It was designed for flatpickers and fingerstyle players alike. It can handle anything your fingers can play, and sound fantastic while doing it! Additionally, a venetian cutaway is there to allow access to higher frets, an ebony armrest has been added, ebony and koa purfling compliments the guitar, and abalone shell inlays and trim are present.
Sitka Spruce/Indian Rosewood Tone Woods
The wood combination, aside from the ebony and koa, is fairly standard on the 914ce. The sides and back are made of indian rosewood, which has a midrange similar to that of mahogany's, but expands the low and high end. Now, to give it that signature Taylor tone, the guitar is topped with sitka spruce, Bob Taylor's favorite wood for an all-around great guitar. There really isn't anything this wood is bad for, it can suit flatpickers, aggressive strummers, or even fingerstyle players, and everything in between.
Taylor Expression System 2 Pickup
The 914ce comes equipped with Taylor's Expression System 2 Pickup and onboard preamp, something you won't find often in this price range. Three individually calibrated piezo sensors sit behind the saddle to capture a dynamic range of acoustic sound. You can be sure that the same sound you hear acoustically will be there when you plug in to a PA, acoustic amp, or even straight to recording software.
