The 814ce is Taylor's powerhouse Grand Auditorium model, with new aesthetic appointments and bolstered by the technology of their patented V-Class bracing system. The classic Indian Rosewood/Sitka Spruce combination delivers the characteristic Taylor blend of frequencies, accentuated by the addition of the V-Class bracing system which adds sustain and emphasis on all points of the tonal spectrum. Constructed with a smoky ebony fretboard, maple binding, mother-of-pearl Element fretboard/peghead inlays, and an ES2 acoustic electronics system, the 814ce is an acoustic-electric guitar built to be played.
Our flagship Grand Auditorium now boasts even more sonic delights with the addition of our groundbreaking V-Class bracing architecture. The classic tonewood combination of Indian rosewood and Sitka spruce still delivers its characteristic blend of warmth, low-end presence, and high-range sparkle, but V-Class bracing elevates that tone to new heights. Notes sustain longer, allowing rosewood’s rich overtones to bloom with more clarity than ever, and the advanced bracing scheme introduces greater power and tunefulness across the entire tonal spectrum for a rich and expressive sound. Standout material features include a smoky ebony fretboard sourced from Taylor’s Crelicam mill in Cameroon, maple binding, rosewood edge trim, an abalone rosette edged with rosewood, and mother-of-pearl Element fretboard and peghead inlays. The 814ce also includes a Venetian cutaway and our ES2 acoustic electronics, and ships in a deluxe hardshell case.
