Description

The flagship 814ce embodies everything that makes Taylor special. This classic model has been recently redesigned to great effect by master luthier Andy Powers. Playing this guitar has really opened my eyes to the forward thinking and innovative methods implemented by Taylor in the last decade. First things first  - This guitar is a rosewood back and side/spruce top Auditorium. I love the balance of the auditorium body shape and it’s the perfect all rounder for strumming and fingerpicking.

Under the bonnet the bracing has been radically changed to give exceptional depth and clarity. One strum and you can really feel this machine move under your arm. Taylor have made the gloss much thinner but just as protective to give it a distinct vibrant tone when played. The new ES2 pickup is a real game changer. A much louder and less ‘coloured’ output than the ES1 with a fantastic dynamic response. The pickup comprises of  three piezo sensors in the bridge. These particular sensors are calibrated to pick up the energy moving across the top as opposed to the up and down movement. As a result the pickup is under no stress at all and the notorious piezo quack has completely gone. The aesthetic embellishments such as the rosewood scratch-plate and maple binding look brilliant and the 12 year warranty really seals the deal.

If you’re looking for a high end acoustic that will stand the test of time then the innovations in this 814ce are light years ahead.

The flagship series of Taylor's acoustic/electric line traces back to Bob Taylor’s first rosewood guitars, which helped establish a modern acoustic guitar sound. The Grand Auditorium 814ce has long been a top seller for its versatility. 

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 the customized bracing and a new, custom-calibrated Elixir HD Light string-gauge set.

Premium appointments include maple binding and back strip, rosewood top edge trim, a rosewood pickguard, Taylor’s new Element fretboard inlay in mother-of-pearl, a marbled fretboard, and new Expression System 2 acoustic electronics.
