A player's favorite with Englemann spruce and Imbuia

Perennially one of Taylor's most popular models, the exquisite 814ce Special brings together the warm, rich tone cocktail of Imbuia and Englemann spruce, 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 spruce top beautifully responds to Imbuia's special language, translating its rich overtones and dark humors into a tonal palette of stunning breadth.

Grand Auditorium body style delivers serious volume with stunning clarity

Taylor's Grand Auditorium body style 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, and is eco-friendly

The finish used to create the 814ce's Special 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.
