A 50th anniversary Taylor acoustic-electric with exquisite looks and tone.

The limited-edition Taylor AD14ce-SB LTD celebrates 50 years of the renowned guitar maker with a stunning Grand Auditorium acoustic-electric. Handcrafted in the USA, it pairs beautiful looks with Taylor's latest innovations for an exceptional playing experience. The Taylor AD14ce-SB LTD features a solid walnut back and sides paired with a solid spruce top in an elegant tobacco sunburst finish, along with commemorative appointments like a faux tortoise pickguard. With Taylor's V-Class bracing and Expression System 2 electronics, it delivers impressive volume, sustain and amplified tone. The Grand Auditorium body provides a balanced response across fingerpicking, strumming and more. Walnut lends an earthy warmth, blending beautifully with the spruce top's shimmering highs.

V-Class Bracing Engine Boosts Volume and Intonation

Taylor's advanced V-Class bracing is a sonic powerhouse, optimizing your guitar's response. Notes ring out with more volume and sustain compared to traditional bracing. Even better, V-Class resolves the tuning issues that have long plagued acoustics. Your AD14ce-SB LTD will play in tune all over the fingerboard. Chords sound fuller and more harmonious. Single notes bloom with resonance and decay gracefully. It's also easier to get perfectly tuned thanks to the pure pitch.

ES2 Electronics Convey the True Acoustic Tone

Taylor's Expression System 2 electronics faithfully amplify the AD14ce-SB LTD's natural acoustic voice. The key is the patented behind-the-saddle pickup with three sensors that capture your guitar's dynamics and nuances. Together with Taylor's clear-sounding preamp, the ES2 produces exceptional plugged-in tone. The easy-access volume, bass and treble controls let you shape your sound for the venue. Whether on stage through a PA or direct into a mixing board, the ES2 conveys the beauty of your Taylor.

The Grand Auditorium Excels Across Playing Styles

The Grand Auditorium's versatile shape is a Taylor original that helped define their acoustic sound. Its balanced tone works well for fingerpicking, strumming chords or medium picking. The GA responds evenly across the tonal spectrum to deliver a clear, full-bodied voice. The Venetian cutaway grants comfortable access to the highest notes. The slim mahogany neck offers smooth playability. With the AD14ce-SB LTD's musical range, you can play any genre with excellence.

Walnut and Spruce Pairing Provides Rich, Complex Tone

The walnut back and sides offer deep lows, focused mids and clear treble notes. Its natural compression evens out the attack for a smooth response. Spruce adds crisp, articulate highs with impressive volume and sustain. Together they create a versatile acoustic palette to suit any playing style. Strummed chords ring out with complexity. Picked notes have definition and warmth. The AD14ce-SB LTD fills any room with its lush, detailed voice.
