A rosewood/spruce pairing with top-of-the-line Taylor innovations.

The Taylor Guitars 814ce V-class Grand Auditorium acoustic-electric guitar is a premium instrument that combines innovative design, premium tonewoods and elegant appointments to deliver an unparalleled playing experience for guitarists of all levels. At the heart of the 814ce is Taylor's groundbreaking V-class bracing, which boosts volume, sustain and intonation for notes that ring out loud, long and true. A Sitka spruce top paired with Indian rosewood back and sides create a balanced tone that suits any playing style, from delicate fingerpicking to aggressive strumming. The cutaway Grand Auditorium body provides robust, articulate sound and comfortable playability. Taylor's ES2 electronics faithfully amplify the 814ce's acoustic properties for natural tone when plugged in. Premium touches like rosewood binding, rosette and armrest elevate both playability and esthetics. Experience the pinnacle of acoustic guitar craftsmanship with the Taylor 814ce V-class Grand Auditorium.

V-Class Bracing Unlocks the Guitar's Full Potential

Taylor's revolutionary V-Class bracing is a sonic breakthrough that optimizes the 814ce's tone, volume and intonation. V-Class bracing creates notes that ring out with unparalleled clarity, richness and sustain. The entire fretboard is brought into tune for an improved musical experience. Whether playing acoustically or plugged in, guitarists will appreciate the 814ce's dynamic range, harmonic complexity and tuning stability thanks to this innovative bracing system.

Premium Tonewoods Provide a Lifetime of Musical Inspiration

The 814ce's solid Sitka spruce top, and Indian rosewood back and sides are prized for their ability to produce a balanced, versatile tone that suits any playing style. Sitka spruce's strength and responsiveness generate crisp articulation and ample projection. Indian rosewood's sweeping tonal range encompasses deep lows, sparkling highs and a slightly scooped midrange, creating a complex voice with extended sustain. These premium tonewoods only improve with age, providing a lifetime of tonal inspiration.

Cutaway Body and ES2 Electronics Amplify Playability

The 814ce's cutaway Grand Auditorium body provides robust, articulate sound and comfortable playability, with a Venetian cutaway for easy access to upper frets. Taylor's ES2 electronics faithfully amplify the guitar's acoustic properties, conveying accurate tone and responsiveness through any amp or PA. Volume, treble and bass controls allow simple sound shaping for any musical situation.

Premium Appointments Elevate Aesthetics and Playability

Distinctive appointments like rosewood binding, rosette and armrest highlight the 814ce's premium aesthetics and playability. An abalone rosette edged in rosewood encircles the soundhole, with rosewood binding gracing the body, neck and headstock. A rosewood armrest provides a comfortable forearm rest. Peghead and fretboard inlays incorporate mother-of-pearl for an elegant touch.
