The Taylor 814ce Acoustic-Electric is made from standout material features include a West African Crelicam 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 are all elegant touches. The 814ce also includes a Venetian cutaway for maximum comfort throughout your playing experience, allowing you to easily play for hours without discomfort.
There's a reason why the 814ce is Taylor's most acclaimed guitar: With its blend of refined craftsmanship, richly textured sound, and artful aesthetics, the 814ce represents everything that we stand for as guitar builders. East Indian rosewood back and sides, a Sitka spruce top, and V-Class bracing produce a lush response with warm lows, pristine trebles, and a slightly scooped midrange, leaving space in the mix for vocals or other instruments. Ideal for flatpicked lead lines, strumming, delicate fingerpicking, and everything in between, this Grand Auditorium acoustic-electric boasts a versatile character that translates beautifully in amplified settings through the ES2 pickup. A deluxe hardshell case keeps the 814ce safe wherever you take it.
The 814ce Deluxe comes stocked with the Expression 2 Pickup System, which is an 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.
