Taylor's Gorgeous 814ce with V-class Bracing

Combining elegant aesthetics with tone-enhancing details, the 800 Series is Taylor's incredibly popular class of rosewood guitars. The 814ce acoustic-electric Grand Auditorium Cutaway features revolutionary V-class bracing, which boosts volume evenly across the tonal spectrum, increases sustain, and improves the natural intonation of the instrument by creating a more synergistic response from the soundboard. This fosters a more harmonious relationship between the notes you play, helping chords to ring out in cohesive splendor. If you're a guitarist who appreciates the robust lows and crisp highs of rosewood, you'll relish how well-mannered the overtones are as your notes bloom. While you delight in its beautiful tone, your eyes will savor the 814ce's tasteful appointments.

V-class bracing: a sonic revelation

Bracing is the internal framework of an acoustic guitar that helps shape its sound. Although X-bracing has been standard in acoustic guitars for over a century, it creates an innate conflict between two key elements of a guitar’s sound: volume and sustain. The guitar's top (its soundboard) contributes to both. The flexibility of the top generates volume (projection), while its stiffness generates sustain. And with X-braced guitar tops, here's where the tradeoff comes in: when something is made stiffer, its flexibility is reduced (and vice versa).

V-class bracing changes all that. With Taylor's V-class bracing, an acoustic guitar top can be both stiff and flexible — for more volume and sustain. V-class bracing provides stiffness parallel to the strings for more rigidity and, hence, sustain. Flexibility on either side generates the air movement necessary for robust projection. It's the best of both worlds. This groundbreaking innovation also improves intonation, not only producing notes that are louder and with longer sustain — but also more in tune with each other. Guitarists at Music Now are gobsmacked. But don't take our word for it — pick up the superb Taylor 814ce and experience it for yourself!

Grand Auditorium body style delivers exceptional presence

Taylor's beloved Grand Auditorium body style, featured on the 814ce, employs the width and depth of the dreadnought. But its waist is narrower, which gives Grand Auditorium–bodied acoustic guitars a sleeker look, with more treble zing. The 814ce's Grand Auditorium body style also helps to sharpen the definition of each note, balancing out nicely with the excellent projection of its Sitka spruce top.

A classic tonewood combination

Nothing beats the sound of rosewood topped with spruce. As a top tonewood, Sitka spruce offers a combination of strength and elasticity that delivers a broad dynamic range with crisp articulation that's ideal for a wide range of playing styles, from delicate fingerpicking to aggressive flatpicked strumming. Used for the back and sides of the 814ce, Indian rosewood’s extended frequency range and rich, musical tonality have elevated it to premium status among tonewoods. Its potent low end can serve up a throaty growl, while sparkling treble notes ring out with bell-like clarity. Slightly scooped in the midrange (as compared with mahogany), rosewood acoustic guitars are perfect for solo performance, vocal accompaniment, and tracking in sparser arrangements.

Cutting-edge Taylor Expression System 2 electronics

If you play plugged in, then you're going to love the Taylor Expression System 2 (ES2) electronics built into your 814ce. The key to this fantastic system is the 3-section proprietary pickup located behind the saddle. Because of where it's positioned and how it's integrated into the 814ce's saddle, the ES2 pickup provides you with remarkably clear and accurate sound. In addition to a master volume control, a pair of tone controls lets you tweak your highs and lows to get the sound you need, and a discreet phase switch offers vital onboard feedback suppression.
