We are selling this Taylor 814ce Grand Auditorium Acoustic-Electric in Natural as our Floor Demo Model. It was loaned out & used for a few shows & is in perfect shape. A few scratches on the pickguard. Other wise it looks new.
It comes with its full manufacturer's warranty and original hardshell case. This Grand Auditorium-sized acoustic-electric guitar features top-notch tonewoods in Indian Rosewood, Sitka Spruce, Ebony, and Mahogany.
Taylor's flagship Grand Auditorium now boasts even more sonic delights with the addition of Taylor's groundbreaking V-Class bracing architecture! The Taylor 814ce Grand Auditorium Acoustic Guitar in Natural offers the classic tonewood combination of Indian rosewood and Sitka spruce still delivers its characteristic blend of warmth, low-end presence, and high-range sparkle, but V-Class bracing elevates that tone to new heights. Notes sustain longer, allowing rosewood’s rich overtones to bloom with more clarity than ever, and the advanced bracing scheme introduces greater power and tunefulness across the entire tonal spectrum for a rich and expressive sound that none can argue with.
The Grand Auditorium body shape creates a very charming output that almost sounds as if the harsh frequencies have been cut to only accentuate the desired sounds of the acoustic guitar.
Standout material features include a smoky ebony fretboard sourced from Taylor’s Crelicam mill in Cameroon, maple binding, rosewood edge trim, an abalone rosette edged with rosewood, and mother-of-pearl Element fretboard and peghead inlays. The 814ce also includes a Venetian cutaway for maximum comfort throughout your playing experience that allows you to easily play for hours with no physical discomfort.
The 814ce comes stocked with the Expression 2 Pickup System, which is innovative under the saddle design that transparently captures the 814ce sparkling tone and full-bodied low end that this guitar acoustically delivers. Being that this guitar comes with a pickup installed it is easily applicable to live settings whether that be an open mic or a full-size professional stage, this guitar does it all.
