Designed with modern steel-string players in mind with solid tonewood combination and highly accessible body.

The Taylor 814ce-N Grand Auditorium acoustic-electric nylon string guitar provides an exceptional playing experience for nylon-string guitarists. Taylor's revolutionary ES2 pickup system delivers a dynamic range of acoustic tone when plugged in, faithfully conveying the voice of your guitar. The heart of the ES2 is Taylor's patented behind-the-saddle pickup with three uniquely positioned and individually calibrated pickup sensors. Together with Taylor's custom-designed preamp, this system produces exceptional amplified tone and responsiveness whether on stage, plugged into your favorite acoustic amplifier or recording direct.

ES2 Pickup System Offers Unprecedented Tonal Control

The ES2 pickup system provides an unparalleled level of tonal control for a nylon-string guitar. Volume, EQ and Body Blend knobs are intuitive and easy to access, allowing you to shape your tone to suit any musical situation. The EQ knob controls the amount of mid-range scoop, adding punch when turned clockwise or a neutral, present tone when turned counter-clockwise. The Body Blend knob controls the level of the body sensor signal, yielding either a dynamically rich, robust tone or a more cutting, crisp tone.

Fusion Neck Offers Familiar Feel for Steel-String Players

Taylor's Fusion Neck has a slim profile and 1 7/8" nut width, providing a comfortable feel for nylon-string and steel-string players alike. The Fusion Neck's 16" radius and low action allow for fast, easy playing across the fretboard. The narrow nut width and slight radius provide an easy transition for steel-string players interested in exploring the warm, expressive tone of nylon strings.

Premium Appointments and Portability

Premium appointments on the 814ce-N include a rosewood/spruce top, rosewood back and sides, rosewood binding, rosewood pickguard and abalone rosette. A recycled nylon gig bag provides a stylish and sustainable way to transport your guitar, with padded handles and compartments for accessories.
