OVERVIEW

Limited version of Taylor's popular body shape made more desirable with its tobacco sunset finish.

The essence of the Taylor playing experience lives within the rosewood/spruce 800 Series. With the debut of its comprehensive redesign in 2014, master guitar designer Andy Powers took what was already Taylor’s flagship guitar series and deployed an array of voicing enhancements, ranging from customized bracing and wood thicknesses for each body style to the use of protein glues and ultra-thin finish, to bring out another level of musicality. Together, these refinements deliver much more than the sum of their parts. For everyone from pros to hobbyists, they make the playing experience more expressive, inspiring and fun. As with all 800 Series instruments, the 814ce-SB ships in a deluxe hardshell case made by Taylor for optimal fit and protection.


Grand Auditorium
A Taylor original, the Grand Auditorium helped establish the Taylor acoustic sound.  The popular body style makes for a versatile guitar that yields ample volume in response to light fingerpicking, and reacts to medium strumming and flatpicking with a clear, balanced sound across the tonal spectrum.  If you want a great all-purpose guitar, the GA is an excellent choice.

Sitka spruce
As a guitar soundboard, or top, Sitka spruce is the tonewood standard of the modern era. It’s used on 85-90 percent of the guitars that Taylor makes. Its combination of strength and elasticity translates into a broad dynamic range, yielding crisp articulation and allowing for everything from aggressive strumming and flatpicking to fingerpicking. Sitka spruce is Bob Taylor’s personal favorite for an all-around great guitar.

Tonewood Pairing

A guitar's top is the primary filter and distributor of vibrating string energy through the guitar, which means it has a huge impact on its sound.  Sitka Spruce is the most prevalent guitar top wood of the modern era.  It blends stiffness and elasticity in just the right proportions which translates into broad dynamic range with crisp articulation.  Solid Indian rosewood back and sides complement the Sitka top with sound that's made it one of the most popular tone woods ever.  Rosewood produces the strongest bass response among the tone woods commonly used for guitars, with a slightly scooped midrange.  Rosewood's sweeping frequency range - deep lows that assert a throaty growl with sparkling highs - rings out with bell-like, high-fidelity clarity.  It yields a full-range acoustic voice with complex overtones and extended sustain.

Expression System 2 Electronics

Taylor's ES2 is a revolutionary pickup design that delivers the latest in Taylor’s ongoing innovation in acoustic guitar amplification. The heart of the Expression System 2 is Taylor’s patented behind-the-saddle pickup, which features three uniquely positioned and individually calibrated pickup sensors. Because the pickup doesn't sit under the saddle, the bottom of the saddle comes in full contact with the bridge, allowing all the nuance of the guitar's tone to come through clearly whether playing acoustically or plugged-in.  The location of the sensors enables a more dynamic range of acoustic sound to be captured than ever before while playing plugged-in. Together with Taylor’s custom-designed “professional audio”-grade preamp, this system produces exceptional amplified tone and responsiveness. On stage through a PA, plugged into your favorite acoustic amplifier, or direct into recording software, the Expression System 2 faithfully conveys the voice of your Taylor guitar.  The Taylor Expression System 2 operates through a proprietary 9-volt battery compartment and easy-to-use volume, bass and treble controls.

The Taylor Difference
What sets Taylor Guitars apart? Unmatched build quality, the most stable and playable necks, a vast array of tonal options, eco-conscious and ethically-sourced raw materials, and a lifetime of service and support.
