Win a 414ce acoustic guitar (acoustic-electric)

Now through November 2, 2018, you could win a new 414ce acoustic-electric guitar featuring Taylor’s V-Class bracing.

One (1) winner from the U.S. and Canada and one (1) winner from the Netherlands, Germany, France, or United Kingdom will each receive a Taylor V-Class 414ce guitar, valued at an approximate retail value (ARV) of $2,399.99 (€2,054.69).

Win a 414ce GuitarThe 400 Series has always offered players reliable, professional-grade guitars with premium features and a workmanlike aesthetic. This year’s edition of the 414ce, a Grand Auditorium acoustic-electric guitar, boasts a solid Sitka spruce top over back and sides of solid ovangkol, an African tonewood that we prize for its sonic versatility and balance. This particular tonewood combination produces a bright response with clear highs and a warm, resonant low end, with enough mid-range presence for a truly balanced sound across the frequency range. The addition of V-Class bracing transforms the 414ce into a working musician’s dream—the new internal design provides stability along the center axis plus a flexible, orderly top vibration, producing greater volume and unmatched sustain. Even better: the new bracing helps resolve the clashing overtones that cause imperfect intonation in traditionally braced guitars, creating a perfectly tuneful experience all the way down the neck. It’s an ideal option for players across genres and styles, serving equally well for fingerpickers and strummers, light players and heavy hitters.

Aesthetically, the 414ce strikes a balance between spartan functionality and stage-ready visual appeal. The white binding helps set off the unusual coloration of the ovangkol back and sides, while Small Diamond inlays on the peghead and fretboard add a touch of minimalistic flair. This model includes our proprietary Expression System 2 electronics, the tried-and-true preamp and pickup system that provides organic amplified tone to complement this guitar’s already rich tone. It ships in a deluxe hardshell case.

Giveaway winners will be notified by email at the conclusion of the entry period.

Enter by November 2, 2018 for your chance to win.
