Overview

814ce-SB

This 814ce brings a beautiful aesthetic enhancement — a tobacco sunburst top — to our award-winning flagship model. What’s even more impressive is that a breakthrough color application process allows us to apply the rich color treatment without adding any material thickness to our ultra-thin gloss finish, preserving the premium tone-producing capability of this versatile Grand Auditorium guitar. Musically it can cover a lot of ground — its balance, warmth and articulation are great for 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 a gigging player looking for one guitar that can cover it all. The revoicing of the 800 Series has brought greater warmth, a more mature midrange, and a looser, more luxurious low end to the 814ce, thanks in part to customized bracing. Premium appointments include maple binding and back strip, rosewood top edge trim, a rosewood pickguard, Taylor’s Element fretboard inlay in mother-of-pearl, a marbled fretboard, and new Expression System 2 acoustic electronics. The guitar features a Venetian cutaway and includes a Taylor deluxe hardshell case.

Features

Grand Auditorium

Taylor’s signature shape embodies the ultimate all-purpose acoustic.

Indian Rosewood

The tonewood superstar. Popular, traditional, and versatile, Bob Taylor puts Indian rosewood among the greatest tonewoods ever.

Sitka Spruce

The soundboard choice for most guitars, Sitka spruce produces a broad dynamic range and accommodates a versatile range of playing styles.

Expression System® 2

The Expression System® 2 captures more of a guitar’s dynamic properties using a breakthrough behind-the-saddle design.

Venetian Cutaway

The Venetian cutaway is known for its soft, round lines. The sloping peak of the cutaway will vary depending on the shape of the body.
