The 814ce has been Taylor's flagship guitar for much of the brand's history. The popular tonewood combination of Indian rosewood back and sides with a Sitka spruce top has been elevated by the addition of V-Class bracing, a true revolution in acoustic guitar design that helps Taylor guitars produce greater volume, longer sustain, more projection and cleaner intonation, resulting in a rich, vibrant tone that's in tune all the way up and down the neck. The 814ce helped popularize the Grand Auditorium body shape, an original Taylor design with player-friendly curves and a versatile musical response that can be adapted across styles and genres. The slender Taylor neck offers a comfortable playing feel while premium detailing ensures the 814ce will always shine under the spotlight. Complete with built-in ES2 electronics, the 814ce ships in a deluxe hardshell case with light-gauge Elixir strings.
