With its Grand Auditorium body and choice tonewoods, this guitar projects huge and balanced tone with excellent articulation. And thanks to its onboard Taylor Expression System electronics, it sounds amazing when you plug in. Sweetwater has your guitar: the Taylor 814e.

A player's favorite with Sitka spruce and Indian rosewood

Perennially one of Taylor's most popular models, the exquisite 814e brings together the unmistakable tone of rosewood, classic Taylor styling, and the versatility of a Grand Auditorium body, plus adds 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.

Grand Auditorium design for tonal precision and note definition

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 814e from the ground up. Onboard tone controls provide added flavor, or you can set it flat for an uncolored, exceptionally clean amplified sound.

Lustrous, eco-friendly gloss finish resists checking

The finish used to create the 814e's lustrous gloss top, back, and sides was developed at Taylor for maximum durability and resistance to cold-checking. This ultraviolet-cured finish is also more environmentally friendly than traditional lacquer finishes.
