With its solid Indian rosewood back and sides, Lutz spruce top and distinctive appointments, the Grand Auditorium 714ce offers a striking take on an all-time-great tonewood pairing that musicians love for its warmth, clarity and friendliness with other instruments. The Lutz top adds a bit more headroom for dynamic players and hard hitters, while the V-Class bracing inside dials up the response with louder volume and longer sustain. Aesthetic details include koa binding, a three-ring rosette with a herringbone design in Douglas fir and maple, abalone Reflections inlays for the peghead and fretboard, and a weathered brown rosewood pickguard. The 714ce ships with ES2 electronics and a hardshell case.
