Introducing Taylor's brand new innovation - the ground-breaking V-Class Bracing System. Andy Powers has re-imagined the Taylor Guitar, designing a new "sonic engine" which transforms the way the top vibrates to dramatically improve the sound. This new innovation marks a bold departure from X-bracing, producing notes that are louder, longer sustaining, and more in tune with each other. For a more detailed explanation of V-Class bracing, please visit Taylor's website via this link.
Inspired by the new V-Class Bracing system, Taylor have created the beautiful K14ce Builder's Edition guitar. This guitar is made from Hawaiian Koa back and sides paired with a Solid Sitka Spruce Top. Koa is a tonewood which yields a complex tone with sonic rewards which open up over time, as warm, sweet overtones gradually emerge. And Sitka Spruce is a classic, popular choice for guitar tops, producing a broad dynamic range and accommodating a versatile range of playing styles. Another design emphasis of the Builder’s Edition is enhanced playing comfort in the form of ergonomic new body contours. This includes a beveled armrest, beveled body edge treatment, and a reshaped cutaway that flows smoothly into the heel and incorporates a finger bevel where the cutaway meets the soundboard. Other refined touches include “silent” satin finish, which helps quiet the incidental noise against the guitar body, and a gorgeous new Kona burst that highlights the natural beauty of the figured koa back and sides. The guitar is equipped with Taylor's Expression System 2 - a breakthrough behind-the-saddle transducer which amplifies the true sound of the guitar. Also featuring inset koa/paua top and back trim, new Spring Vine fretboard inlay, new black graphite nut, Gotoh tuners, and new inner sticker featuring the signature of master guitar builder Andy Powers.
