From Our Research Team:
Discover the Difference a Taylor Guitar Can Make!The 800 Series traces its roots to Bob Taylor's first guitars and reflects many of his most enduring ideas. The new 814ce features quartersawn Indian rosewood backs and sides, premium-grade Sitka spruce tops, and a new pearl inlay design. A shimmering abalone rosette complements the upgraded white binding with black purfling.
Taylor Guitar 814ce at a Glance:
A player's favorite with Sitka spruce and Indian rosewood
Perennially one of Taylor's most popular models, the exquisite 814ce brings together the unmistakable tone of rosewood, classic Taylor styling, and the versatility of a Grand Auditorium body, plus adds a cutaway and Expression System electronics to complete the perfect picking package. The Sitka spruce top beautifully responds to rosewood's special language, translating its rich overtones and dark humors into a tonal palette of stunning breadth.
Taylor Guitar 814ce Grand Auditorium design
Taylor's Grand Auditorium combines the width and depth of a Dreadnought with a narrower waist. Its sleek design yields a strong treble zing across the tonal spectrum and sharpens the definition of individual notes. The Grand Auditorium is a strong fingerpicking guitar that also adapts well to medium strumming.
Taylor Expression System for optimum amplification
Designed to faithfully reproduce your guitar's native tone, the Expression System utilizes patented Dynamic Sensors to capture top and string vibration like never before. Created in partnership with renowned audio pioneer, Mr. Rupert Neve, the Taylor ES is seamlessly integrated into the design of the 814ce from the ground up. Onboard tone controls provide added flavor, or set flat for an uncolored, exceptionally clean amplified sound.
Taylor Guitar 814ce gloss finish resists checking, is eco-friendly
The finish used to create the 814ce's lustrous gloss top, back, and sides was developed at Taylor for maximum durability and resistance to cold-checking. This ultra violet-cured finish is also more environmentally friendly than traditional lacquer finishes. Available finish options in this series are natural back, sides, and top, and natural back and sides with a tobacco or honey sunburst top.

Incredible sound and look for a sweet guitar
by Ray R. from Charleston, SCShopping for an acoustic guitar, especially one that I intend to have for the rest of my life, was pretty challenging at first since I only have one other acoustic guitar which happened to be my first... read more [+] ever guitar.

But I found the perfect guitar with the Taylor 814ce in tobacco sunburst. The design of the guitar with the sunburst and the pearl inlays looks fantastic. I don't think any type of picture would do it justice, you would have to see it for yourself to take in the great design.
One thing that surprised me, given the guitar's size, is that it's got an enormous sound to it.
It's so easy to play too with the mahogany neck; strumming chords and playing single notes on the guitar feels like I'm playing an electric guitar.
This one's a keeper! close [-]
A DREAM COME TRUE!!!!!
by Ronnie Magana from Santa Ana Ca. USAFirst and foremost, I can't say enough about the AWESOME service I received from the staff of Sweetwater. Ben Porter, was my personal Sales Engineer, he was simply amazing. As for the Taylor 814 Ce, w... read more [+]ell let's just say, the guitar speaks for itself! Absolutely blow away, the resonating sound when strumming a chord, the clarity when finger picking and the beauty of the finish on the guitar is clear as glass. The beauty about playing this Taylor is, for instance, 3hrs can go by and only feels like an hr, without your thumb, hand cramping up. The PERFECT tonal quality when gliding, sliding is bar-none the BEST. Sweetwater you've made a new friend. I will most definitely recommend you to my friends close [-]

814ce Hands Down Best Acoustic
by John Maguire from West Palm Beach, Fl, USAI have played many Taylors. You name it, most likely have played it. I was skeptical if there really was a difference between certain upper level Taylors (i.e. 6xx and up). I have played both the 6... read more [+]14, 714, and 814 back to back. Nothing compares to the tonal response of this guitar. From higher register bends to low register harmonics... the tone is unparalleled. A fine blend between mid lows and highs. I love a crisp sound, without much muddy low end... and this is the guitar that best fits it. The expression system rivals the old fishman prefix just fine. Very impressed. close [-]

When it came time to buy a high-end acoustic, I played everything, everywhere. The Taylor 814ce was the hands-down winner. From its beautifully even tone to the silky playable action to the astoundingly recordable Expression System, this is the best guitar I've ever owned.
