Often, our limited edition guitars are an opportunity to try out an exceptional or unique set of tonewoods, and that’s the case with this 814ce LTD. Built with back and sides of stunning blackheart sassafras, this Grand Auditorium’s organic beauty and vibrant tone demand attention. A solid Sitka spruce top delivers its characteristic presence and shimmer, pairing beautifully with sassafras’ unique sonic profile: the focused clarity of maple, the midrange warmth of mahogany, and the top-end sparkle of rosewood. Its chameleonic nature means it’s very player-reflective, so your individual style will elicit a unique sound from this 814ce LTD. Aesthetically, this model shares some appointments with our standard 800 Series lineup, including rosewood edge trim on the top and mother-of-pearl fretboard inlays in our Element pattern. It also features West African ebony binding and backstrip, ES2 electronics, and a Venetian cutaway, and ships in a deluxe hardshell case.
