Taylor Guitars Unveils Builder’s Edition 314ce LTD
Kona burst top.

Taylor Guitars introduces the 50th Anniversary Builder’s Edition 314ce LTD, featuring Urban Ash back and sides, Sitka spruce top, and V-Class bracing for exceptional clarity and sustain.

Featuring a cutaway Grand Auditorium body, Urban Ash back and sides, and a Sitka spruce top, the guitar incorporates a beveled armrest and cutaway, chamfered body edges, and a Curve Wing bridge—premium features that fit into the Builder’s Edition design ethos by enhancing the playing comfort to offer a more fluid, musically expressive experience. Choose from a natural or Kona burst top, accented with a firestripe pickguard.

Natural finish.

Both versions also boast a Kona burst body and neck and a Silent Satin finish, which combines the mellow sheen of a traditional satin finish with a smooth feel that reduces incidental noise as the player moves against the body (a major plus for recording applications).

Other notable appointments include Italian acrylic Compass inlays, silver side dots, black/Ivoroid edge trim, an Italian acrylic rosette, and Gotoh 510 tuners in Antique Gold. As part of Taylor’s anniversary collection, the guitar features ebony bridge pins with gold acrylic dots and a 50th-anniversary soundhole label.

Tonally, Urban Ash delivers a harmonious fusion of mahogany and koa properties, offering a focused, even response that suits a wide range of playing styles. Paired with a spruce top and Taylor’s proprietary V-Class voicing architecture, these guitars yield a level of clarity, projection, sustain, and responsiveness that players will love. With this blend of ergonomic features, aesthetic appeal, and sonic versatility, this heirloom-grade model celebrates Taylor’s heritage of inspiring, high-performance acoustics in a uniquely memorable way.
