Legendary for a Reason

With all-star tonewoods, refined appointments, top-tier craftsmanship and a distinctively bold, contemporary voice, Taylor’s 800 Series blends a seamless playing experience with unmatched clarity and balance. The time-honored combination of solid Indian rosewood with Sitka spruce produces a versatile tone rich with harmonic texture and ringing overtones, with V-Class bracing inside most models to dial up greater volume and sustain. With sharp aesthetic details, the comfortable Taylor neck, player-focused features like the radius armrest, and a wide selection of body styles, the American-made 800 Series sits at the intersection of craft and wide-ranging musical inspiration.

FEATURES

An Elegant Balance of Style, Substance and Sound

Between world-class tonewoods, transformative design features like V-Class bracing, and refined aesthetic details, the 800 Series boasts a look and feel that rival its lush tone.

Rosewood & Spruce: an All-Time Great Tonewood Pairing

Bob Taylor’s favorite tonewood pairing yields clear, chime-like trebles and a resonant low end around a slightly scooped midrange, serving up a broad spectrum of sound while leaving room in the mix for vocals and other instruments.

Classic Tonewoods Elevated for Sound, Style and Comfort

Ultra-thin gloss finishes ensure optimal resonance, and V-Class bracing delivers a boost to volume and sustain in all full-size steel-string models. The scaled-down GT 811e offers surprising sonic power, and rosewood armrests in the 814ce, 812ce and 812ce 12-Fret provide greater playing comfort.

Expression System 2 Acoustic Pickup

Our ES2 under-saddle pickup and preamp translate the overtone-rich sound of 800 Series guitars into detailed, natural-sounding amplified tone, making it easy to plug in and play anywhere you go.

Spotlight-Worthy Aesthetic Appointments

Standard appointments include a smoky ebony fretboard and peghead veneer, ebony bridge and bridge pins, maple binding, maple fretboard and peghead purfling, rosewood edge trim, an abalone rosette, a full-body gloss finish (except the 818e) and Element inlays in mother-of-pearl.

A Sound for Every Player

The 800 Series includes two nylon-string models (814ce-N and 812ce-N) as well as a Grand Orchestra 818e, which sports a unique set of appointments. Players are also sure to appreciate the uniquely high-fidelity sound of the Builder’s Edition 816ce and the compact GT 811e.

Hardshell Case Included with Every Guitar

Each model in the 800 Series, from the compact 812ce to the big, bold 818e, includes a fitted deluxe hardshell case to protect your guitar from impact damage and the effects of local climate.
