This 814ce brings a beautiful aesthetic enhancement — a tobacco sunburst top — to our award-winning flagship model. What’s even more impressive is that a breakthrough color application process allows us to apply the rich color treatment without adding any material thickness to our ultra-thin gloss finish, preserving the premium tone-producing capability of this versatile Grand Auditorium guitar. Musically it can cover a lot of ground — its balance, warmth and articulation are great for fingerstyle, it has enough punch as a strummer to front a band, and the top-end power will fuel lead runs without getting shrill. It’s a great choice for a gigging player looking for one guitar that can cover it all. The revoicing of the 800 Series has brought greater warmth, a more mature midrange, and a looser, more luxurious low end to the 814ce, thanks in part to customized bracing. Premium appointments include maple binding and back strip, rosewood top edge trim, a rosewood pickguard, Taylor’s Element fretboard inlay in mother-of-pearl, a marbled fretboard, and new Expression System 2 acoustic electronics. The guitar features a Venetian cutaway and includes a Taylor deluxe hardshell case.
