Taylor PS14ce-FLTD • Limited Edition

Within Taylors guitar line, their Presentation Series stands out as the paragon of Taylor luthiery. This limited edition of only 25 pieces worldwide, 12-fret Grand Auditorium showcases those same top-tier aesthetic virtues with the breathtaking pairing of striped West African ebony, sourced from Taylor’s Crelicam ebony mill in Cameroon, with richly variegated sinker redwood.

The tight-grained redwood tops were sliced from old-growth logs reclaimed from the bottom of a California river, whose mineral-rich river bed infused the wood with an array of color hues. Sonically, redwood blends the warm overtone complexity of cedar with the attacking power of spruce, while ebony yields some of rosewood’s bell-like fidelity but with the more linear output of maple.

The magic here is in the fusion of these tonal nuances with a 12-fret Grand Auditorium body. Players can expect a warm, balanced response that packs an extra punch with the help of the redwood top and the 12-fret’s shifted bridge location.

The guitar is detailed with our finest Presentation Series appointments, including ebony binding with a beveled ebony armrest, elaborate Nouveau paua inlays and edge trim, and gold Gotoh tuners with a 21:1 tuning ratio for maximum precision. The guitar comes equipped with Taylor's Expression System® 2 electronics and comes in a deluxe hardshell case.

Sinker Redwood Top
A customer favorite for its origins, sinker redwood soundboards are sliced from huge old-growth redwood logs reclaimed from the depths of Northern California rivers, where they’ve lain in many cases for more than a century. The tops typically display a rich spectrum of variegation, the result of colors uniquely imparted from silt and the mineral-rich water. The age and size of these trees translates into a tight grain with nice cross-grain stiffness, so it will tend to have a fairly bold response, with a brilliance complemented by warm overtones similar to cedar. In fact, it’s often characterized around the Taylor complex as "cedar on steroids."

African Ebony Back & Sides
Taylor typically use African ebony for fretboards and bridges, but occasionally they acquire sets for backs and sides of their limited edition guitars. It shares some of Macassar ebony’s low-end damping tendencies, and has a rich, ringing tonal character with a linear quality across the tonal spectrum — no particular frequencies are accentuated over others.
