800 Series Guitars

Starting at $3,699 USD

Legendary for a Reason

 With all-star tonewoods, artful 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. 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—whether you’re interested in our array of standard models or the ultra-refined pair of Builder’s Edition models.

Now featuring three Builder’s Edition models, the 800 Series boasts an array of guitars that match aesthetic beauty with cross-genre musical utility.

Rosewood & Spruce: an All-Time Great Tonewood Pairing

Rosewood & Spruce: an All-Time Great Tonewood Pairing

Classic Tonewoods Elevated for Sound, Style and Comfort

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
