The popular Grand Auditorium 314ce is an acoustic workhorse that performs equally well in the practice room, recording studio, and on stage. This Long & McQuade exclusive features a cedar/rosewood combination. A true performer for those with a lighter touch, cedar tops yield extra warmth and pair nicely with rosewood's deep lows and bright, sparkling treble notes.

By introducing a more orderly vibration to the guitar's top, V-Class bolsters the sustain and volume to offer players a more dynamic voice to explore, while also resolving the minor intonation issues that players have long had to contend with.

Appointments include faux tortoise shell binding, grained ivoroid Century fretboard inlay, and all gloss finish. A Venetian cutaway invites your fretting hand up the neck, while the proprietary ES2 electronics serve up faithful plugged-in tone. The guitar ships in a deluxe hardshell case.

Product Experience   I own it
Closest Store   Toronto (Bloor St.), Ontario
I've been playing guitar since I was 8 which has been a long time from now. I've typically only been a Yamaha fan (which they make outstanding guitars as well for the price) .. I decided to get myself my first Taylor which was always my dream. Anyone who tells you that you're paying for the name, is sorely mistaken. There truly is a distinct tone on Taylor's that distinguish them from any other brand I've picked up. Now... the price is quite high yes... so I'll say for all of you looking to buy this: keep this guitar somewhere safe and sound, being your gig case. Make sure you're not storing it in places too hot or cold... as the wood on this guitar I must say is so rich and spectacular, you will treat this guitar like a newborn child. If you're looking for a guitar to beat around and take with you places, this is not the guitar for you. This guitar should be house kept or in a studio for most of the time, if you're going to gig with it, I highly advise you to take extra good care of it. These guitars will be worth a lot of money someday. I give sound 10/10 - better sounding than any of my other yamaha acoustics by far I give playability 9/10 - just because the neck may take a little getting used to, but to the passionate guitarist: there is no challenge we won't accept. haha I give looks an 11/10 - the finish is gorgeous and half the time I am very sad that I cant be leaving it on a stand for everyone to see, as I keep it in the case with humidity packs. Overall, you wont be disappointed, I certainly wasn't and I am quite the picky individual.

Performance Warranty Banner

Protect your investment with the Long & McQuade Performance Warranty

A warranty can be a very important factor when making a buying decision. Because repairs can be very expensive in terms of parts and labour costs, manufacturers usually only provide one year limited warranties that generally only cover items that malfunction due to a manufacturer’s defect. With an important purchase such as a musical
instrument or piece of studio gear, however, many people want to have the peace of mind in knowing that their investment will be protected should the product no longer be performing at 100%.

Because of this, Long & McQuade provides our customers with a FREE one-year Performance Warranty on most of our products. The Long & McQuade Performance Warranty supplements the manufacturer’s warranty to ensure that our customers receive complete “no hassle” warranty coverage within their first year.

How does the Long & McQuade Performance Warranty differ from most manufacturers' warranties?
  • Performance Guarantee: Normal wear and tear is covered, so your product will be performing as well as the day you purchased it for the entire duration of the coverage. Band and Orchestral Performance Warranty does not include replacing pads or cleaning for woodwind instruments, unless deemed necessary by our repair staff. Ultrasonic cleaning for brass instruments will be provided if deemed necessary by our repair staff, but is not routinely offered under the Performance Warranty.
  • Product Replacement: If your product cannot be fixed or costs too much to fix, we will replace it with the equivalent model for no additional charge. If this is not possible, a full refund will be provided.
  • No Lemon Policy: Your product will be replaced should the same problem occur multiple times.
  • Convenient: Easy drop off and pick up of the product at any Long & McQuade location.
  • Guitar Setup: Guitars purchased at Long & McQuade come with 1 free setup, to be redeemed within 1 year for new guitars and 90 days for used guitars.
  • Loaners Available: A loaner product may be given while the product is being repaired.
  • Power Surge Protection: Your product is covered even if damaged from a power surge.
  • Accessory Coverage: Any peripheral devices or accessories that come with your product (i.e. foot pedal, case) are also covered.
  • Commercial Use Coverage: Music and recording professionals who purchase gear for “heavy-use” commercial purposes will still be covered.

Long & McQuade reserves the right to restrict the purchase of additional years of Performance Warranty. Used products come with a 3-month Long & McQuade Performance Warranty. Some products (i.e. computers, software, cymbals and other items) are covered only by the manufacturer‘s warranty. Consumables (i.e. strings, reeds, drum sticks, batteries, tubes, cross faders) are excluded as they are designed to be replaced. Cosmetic Damage, Accidental Damage, or problems caused by Humidity or Temperature Issues are not covered. Speakers damaged by overpowering are generally not covered. Our coverage does not provide compensation for loss of use. As of June 2018 the Performance Warranty is no longer transferable. The warranty is only valid in Canada.

Purchasing additional years of coverage

Some manufacturers provide warranties for longer than 1 year; however, these are usually limited warranties that do not provide the same coverage as the Long & McQuade Performance Warranty. Customers interested in more complete and convenient (but not necessarily longer) coverage are still able to purchase additional years of the Performance Warranty.

If you are interested in receiving this coverage for longer than one year, you have the option of purchasing additional years of the Performance Warranty. The pricing is as follows:

  • NEW products: 4% of the current new selling price to double the warranty from 1 year to 2 years. 4% for each additional year.
  • USED products: 4% of the current new selling price to increase the warranty from 3 months to 1 year. 4% for each additional year.
  • GUITARS: 4% of the current new selling price to double the warranty from 1 year to 2 years. 4% for each additional year. $45 maximum. An additional free setup is not included with additional purchased years of Performance Warranty.
  • BAND and ORCHESTRAL instruments: 4% of the current new selling price to double the warranty from 1 year to 2 years. 4% for each additional year.
