Price: $3,838 US MSRP / Series: 800

Taylor’s versatile 814 covers a lot of ground. Its balance, warmth and articulation respond well to fingerstyle, it has enough punch as a strummer to front a band, and the top-end power will fuel lead runs without getting shrill. It’s a great choice for anyone looking for a great all-purpose guitar. The revoicing of the 800 Series has brought greater warmth, a more mature midrange, and a looser, more luxurious low end, thanks in part to the customized bracing and a new, custom-calibrated Elixir HD Light string gauge set. Premium appointments include maple binding and back strip, rosewood top edge trim, rosewood pickguard, Element fretboard inlay, and smoky ebony fretboard.
