Taylor 614ce Builder's Edition Acoustic-Electric Guitar - Wild Honey Burst

Sale price$499.99


Our Take:

The Builder's Edition 614ce from Taylor is the ultimate in style, sound, and comfort. Gracefully topped with a torrefied sitka spruce top, and coupled with beautiful big leaf maple back & sides, this guitar is a stunning item! The Wild Honey Burst “Silent” Satin finish, mother-of-pearl Sceptor fretboard/peghead inlays, and inset maple/black body purfling are an absolute dream to look at and feel. And, you have not played a more comfortable Grand Auditorium.

This body has a beveled armrest and body edge that makes playing effortless and extremely comfortable. Under of all the beautiful details and wood, we have Taylors innovative V-Class bracing to give you maximum sustain, volume and responsiveness and the ES2 Onboard electronics to amplify that incredible sound on any stage! With high-end design, sound and quality, this 614ce is perfect for guitarists with playability and aesthetics in mind. 

Taylor's Take:

Taylor design guru Andy Powers conceived our Builder’s Edition collection to deliver a next-level, player-centric experience in both feel and sound. Each model in this family is the equivalent of his director’s cut version of its standard model counterpart, boasting premium woodworking details that refine the playing comfort on both the body and neck. The Builder’s Edition 614ce features our popular Grand Auditorium body, a torrefied Sitka spruce top, back and sides of figured Big Leaf maple, and our patented V-Class bracing. That combination yields an ultra-responsive, player-reflective sound, elevating maple’s natural transparency in a way that can sound warm, bright or whatever a player’s hands decide. The V-Class architecture improves the volume, sustain and projection, and creates more harmonic agreement between notes by putting the top more in tune with the strings. Our proprietary roasting process for the Sitka spruce top lowers the damping effect and helps deliver a more played-in tone. Ergonomic body details (exclusive to Builder’s Edition) include a beveled armrest with beveled body edge treatment; a double-carved cutaway that allows fluid access to the higher frets without the need to change one’s hand position; and our new Silent Satin finish, which reduces contact noise for a cleaner overall sound. Gold Gotoh 510 tuners (featuring a 21:1 gear ratio) complete the suite of tactile delights. Striking aesthetic details include a new Wild Honey Burst on the back, sides and neck (an optional burst-top version is also available), our mother-of-pearl Sceptor fretboard/peghead inlay, and inset maple/black body purfling with matching rosette. The guitar comes equipped with our ES2 electronics and ships in a deluxe hardshell case.
