Taylor 714ce LTD Blackheart Sassafras/Lutz Spruce
This handsome limited edition Grand Auditorium showcases a back and sides of blackheart sassafras, whose dramatic color variegation makes each set of wood truly one-of-a-kind. The tone profile of sassafras blends the clarity and woodiness of mahogany with extra midrange and top-end overtones, while the Sitka spruce soundboard yields extra sonic headroom and fullness thanks to Adirondack spruce bracing. Together with our versatile Grand Auditorium body, this beauty will handle a diverse range of playing styles. Unique details include a sharp Florentine cutaway and premium appointments: rosewood Capstone fretboard inlays outlined in mother-of-pearl, a rosewood/mother-of-pearl rosette, rosewood binding with curly maple top edge trim, a rosewood back strip, and Gotoh Gold tuners, with Taylor’s award-winning Expression System 2 electronics for rich amplified tone. The model features a limited edition guitar label and ships in a Taylor deluxe hardshell case.
"A slightly harder spruce top on this grand auditorium let's you dig in a little more, allowing a full bodied sound while still being comfortable."- Nate, Taylor Guitars Expert
