Taylor's maple/spruce Grand Auditorium has always been a versatile performer, and this edition boasts an array of tone-enhancing refinements that transform maple's tone profile into a richer, warmer and more complex voice. As a result, players can expect an even more dynamic and expressive musical tool.

Design nuances include a maple-specific back bracing profile and a special seasoning process for the spruce top called torrefaction, a method of roasting the wood to produce an aged tonal character with greater acoustic resonance and responsiveness. Other touches include the use of protein glues to optimize the tonal transfer between key wood components and an ultra-thin, 3.5-mil gloss finish to minimize dampening. A new, hand-rubbed "Brown Sugar"stain on the back and sides gives maple's striking figure a beautiful violin-hued appearance without adding extra thickness to the finish. Featured appointments include ivoroid Wings fretboard inlays, an inlaid ebony backstrap, ebony binding with ivoroid purfling, an ebony/ivoroid rosette, and a striped ebony pickguard, along with Taylor's Expression System 2 acoustic electronics. The guitar comes with a deluxe hardshell case.

Bought this guitar used a few weeks ago. I was not looking for a new guitar as i have a custom shop Martin with rosewood back and sides.. When I picked it up and looked at it i thought my god the wood on this thing is beautiful. It has an Ebony back strap, flamed maple back and sides with brown sugar finish. I couldn't believe some one had traded it in because this won the wood lottery. Then I played it and i must say I melted. i have never been a fan of maple but this guitar was the best sounding guitar I have ever played.They even had a 818e and a Gibson J200 to compare it to and I have to say the 618e sounded way better than both. I left the store with out it and did my research and was blown away what Andy Powers had done to the 600 series guitars. so I went back and bought it. I love my new Taylor. Happy to say my Martin is for sale.

If the 2014 Taylor 614CE is great, how much better can it be with a torrified top?3 of 3 customers found this review helpful

I bought my 2014 Taylor 614CE in May 2015. From the first time I dared to pick it up, it fit. Easy to play, great tone, beautiful neck. As always the Taylors are expensive but make no mistake, you will have this instrument for a very long time and they only get better with age.
