The bestselling Taylor 814ce features Indian rosewood back and sides with a solid Sitka spruce top, serving up balanced tone with warm lows, clear highs and a slightly scooped midrange that creates a perfect sonic niche for vocals and other instruments. The always-comfortable Grand Auditorium body is adorned with maple binding and a super-thin glossy finish, making the 814ce an appealing choice both musically and visually. Driven by V-Class Bracing, this model offers unmatched projection and sustain, producing notes and chords that resonate with blooming overtones. A super-thin gloss finish keeps the 814ce looking shiny and polished without damping its sound, while maple binding and a weathered brown pickguard add style and dimension to this model's visual character. It includes Taylor's proprietary Expression System 2 pickup and preamp system and ships in a deluxe hardshell case.
