Taylor Empire Select 414ce Rosewood/Sitka Spruce, Black Binding #33048



Taylor Empire Select 414ce Rosewood/Sitka Spruce, Ebony Fingerboard, Natural

~Guitar pictured is the actual guitar that you will receive~

This Taylor Empire Select 414ce combines the classic tones of Sitka Spruce with the warmth and bottom-end that East Indian Rosewood is known for.

Sitka Spruce tops offer a broad dynamic range, plenty of overhead and deliver the sonic profile of most of today’s modern guitars.  Sitka Spruce is extremely popular due to its ability to perform at a high level for all styles of play.  Whether you are a heavy strummer or fingerstyle player, Sitka Spruce will offer a clean and clear response to match your needs.

Rosewood back and sides offer some of the most classic tones in modern music history.  Players will immediately notice the big bottom-end, sparkling top end and scooped mids.  The complex overtones add to the demand and mystique of Rosewood.  Singer/songwriters tend to love rosewood back and sides due to the scooped mids–allowing their voice to naturally fill this space.

We love this tonewood combination for players who seek one of the most famous tonewood combinations in history.  This model offers tons of versatility, big overhead and tons of bottom-end response!

The Grand Auditorium Body shape is Taylor’s foremost design and allows for all styles of play and is super comfortable!  Matched with a cutaway and Taylor ES2 Electronics package, this design is made for home, stage and studio.

The guitar pictured is the actual guitar that you will receive. It comes with Taylor’s Factory Warranty and our 100% satisfaction guarantee! It will be professionally set up and ready to play before it leaves our store.
