Taylor 314CE Review
When you spend money on a high quality guitar like a Taylor, you want to make sure you are getting your money’s worth. This guitar is no different. I found myself playing this guitar for hours before I bought it just basking in the sheer beauty of the sound.
When I set out to review the Taylor guitars for this website (Taylor 414CE & Taylor Big Baby Acoustic Guitar) I knew I was going to have a task on my hands. Honestly all of them sound amazing, they are Taylors after all! But I tried to my best to spend ample time with each one to form a detailed opinion of each product.
This is honestly one of the best guitars I have ever laid my hands on. I have played just about every brand and I still keep coming back to Taylors because of the way they play and sound. The sound of the 314CE is balanced and bright but is still warm and inviting. If you are a singer-songwriter you will be amazed at how well this guitar complements your voice.
The smooth action is the norm with Taylors but they really got it down. It will feel like a breeze to play and help you focus on the music rather than the guitar (how it should be).
When plugged in you really get a robust and compelling sound. The only gripe I had with the system was the mids. We had a little trouble getting them set to our standards but I put more blame on my own ears than anything else there.
