The Taylor 514ce Urban Ironbark at a glance.

Thanks to its all-solid Grand Auditorium construction, the Taylor 514ce reveals a warm and rich sound even when the strings are gently struck. This is due to the v-shaped top bracing, the combination of woods used and a gauzy high-gloss finish. In addition, the flat neck in combination with the generous cutaway in the lower rib provides an optimal basis for comfortable playability. To ensure that all 20 frets intonate cleanly, the saddle and nut are precisely matched. The characteristic headstock features nickel-plated tun ers, which allow easy tuning of the 6 steel strings. In addition, the electro acoustic guitar comes with the in-house Taylor Expression System 2, which transmits the sound unaltered to the amplifier. Visually, the instrument is rounded off by eye-catching inlays, a multi-ply Binding and an intricately crafted soundhole rosette. The scope of delivery includes a sturdy Taylor Deluxe hardshell case.

Construction and woods

To achieve a wide-ranging and delicate sound, the manufacturer relies on a Sitka spruce top for its construction. The close-grained wood provides a balanced sound in the mid and treble frequencies, making the instrument excellent for strumming and Pickings. Urban Ironbark back and sides further complement the sound with a powerful saturation with crisp basses. Due to the V-Class bracing, the top wood gets into an even, two-dimensional vibration behavior, so that all notes can spread out quickly and clearly. Meanwhile, the flat mahogany neck with ebony fingerboard ensures perfect playability.

Hardware and design

To ensure that the entire sound range is cleanly unfolded, the compensated saddle is made of Micarta and the 44.45 mm wide nut is made of Black Graphite. Meanwhile, the tuners allow the instrument to be tuned quickly and precisely. The ebony overlay of the headstock features a filigree century inlay, which is perfectly matched by the aerial inlays in the fretboard. The top is surrounded by a discreet Multi-Ply-Binding, which, like the soundhole rosette, contrasts pleasantly with the spruce wood and elegantly separates the individual components of the body.


Built into the ebony bridge are three piezo elements that directly pick up the sound of each pair of strings. As a result, the built-in Taylor Expression System 2 captures the entire acoustic sound potential and passes it on to the amplifier unaltered. The control unit in the frame also allows individual adjustment of the output signal. The three potentiometers can be used to level the bass and treble frequencies in addition to the volume. The active pickup system is powered by a 9V block battery, which is stowed in a battery compartment next to the jack.
