The 614ce model was redesigned in 2015 and featured a baked (torrefied) top. This reduces moisture content in the wood and allows for a more mature sound. This particular Prototype has bigger volume, overtones and response that the stock models.
This 614ce Prototype shares all of the same features as a standard model plus it has the Special Roasted Top!
Here is description of the stock 614ce:
With a much richer and warmer sound, the new 614ce will have you realizing a much more complex and resilient tone than that of previous maple guitars. Bigger bottom end and less aggressive treble tones will allow you to play with much more versatility.
Specifications for the Taylor 614ce includ:
*Torrefied Spruce Top--Taylor has roasted the top of this guitar to break down the stiff molecular composition of the wood. This allows for the guitar to sound aged and more played in, which leads to the top moving more and sounding much older!
*Re-voiced Bracing--Taylor has redesigned the bracing to help distinguish the unique sonic personality traits of each body shape. The soundboard bracing was designed to set the top in motion easily. The back bracing was an important area of focus and is specially calibrated to suit the properties of maple. One unique design touch is that the braces don’t extend all the way to the side (except for the bigger Grand Orchestra). This helps produce more volume, projection and low-end warmth, without losing maple’s even response.
*Wood Thickness and Protein Glue--The wood thickness has been specially selected for the body shape of the guitar. This leads to the best tone for every body shape. Protein glue is being used for the bridge and bracing to allow for less damping and allow for better tone transfer.
*Cosmetic Upgrades-- Grained ivoroid Wing fretboard inlays, Gloss-finish ebony backstrap with inlay,Ebony/grained ivoroid binding and purfling, Paua rosette edged with ebony/grained ivoroid, Ebony-bound soundhole and Striped ebony pickguard.
Equipped with the Taylor ES2 Expression System, the 2015 Taylor 614ce will have the most natural and lush plugged-in sound for stage or studio.
