Taylor Guitars has redefined the classic 914ce Grand Auditorium with its newly introduced V-Class™ bracing. To fully realize the benefits of this new design, we put together a comparison of the 2017 and 2018 Taylor 914ce so you can experience the difference in volume, sustain, and the guitar’s natural intonation. Let's take a closer look and listen to these 914ce's demonstrated side by side so you can hear for yourself the benefits of this all-new V-Class bracing. (The audio for the guitars has not been manipulated and all levels are relative to the level at which both the 2017 and 2018 models were recorded.)

By creating flexibility across the guitar’s top and rigidity along the middle of the guitar parallel to the strings, V-Class guitar bracing produces incredible volume and sustain. It also creates order in the guitar’s sound, bringing the top into tune with the strings for better intonation and more harmonic tones all the way up and down the neck. With a more expressive response and a cleaner overall sound, V-Class opens up new possibilities for guitarists.
