This Taylor Builder's Edition 814ce Acoustic-Electric Guitar in Natural is brand new and comes with its original hardshell case. The Music Gallery is proud to be an authorized Taylor Dealer so this guitar comes with its full manufacturer's warranty.
This Taylor provides dense tones, loaded with harmonics thanks to its Indian Rosewood back and sides. When paired with Adirondack Spruce, we get incredible projection and volume. The V-Class Bracing certainly helps this guitar move some sound with a lighter touch.
The neck is made from Tropical Mahogany and it is topped with a West African Crelicam Ebony Fingerboard. The nut width measures 1.75" and the guitar features 25.5" Scale Length. The back of the neck has a satin finish on it so it feels smooth, dry, and fast.
Builder's Edition guitars from Taylor always feel amazing thanks to the beveled contours in the cutaway and on the edge of the guitar where your arm rests. This one does feature a full gloss finish on the body, not something typically found on other Builer's Editions.
From the Taylor Website... The 814ce has long been considered Taylor's flagship acoustic-electric guitar thanks to its mix of lush tone, playing comfort and all-purpose musical appeal. Here, we're thrilled to present the next evolution of this classic model: the Builder's Edition 814ce. For this version, we've kept the solid Indian rosewood back and sides and paired them with a four-piece Adirondack spruce top, a combo that yields an enticing blend of low-end warmth, treble-range clarity and remarkable power, with our V-Class bracing inside to draw out more of the blooming overtones and rich sustain that players love. A handful of comfort-focused enhancements, such as a beveled armrest and cutaway and a subtle body taper, elevate the relaxed, accommodating feel of the Grand Auditorium body, while a striking full-body gloss finish and Kona burst for the back and sides raise this model's visual profile. Whether you're looking for an all-purpose musical workhorse or an heirloom-quality guitar to augment your collection, the Builder's Edition 814ce makes a compelling case as the most quintessentially "Taylor" guitar we've ever built.
