The Taylor 814ce DLX Electro Acoustic Guitar in Natural finish is a deluxe model of the best-selling 814ce, which features upgraded internal voicing to boost the warmth produced with a richer low-end response. Other premium enhancements include an Adirondack spruce bracing that enhances the tonal output, a sweetly contoured rosewood radius armrest for increased playing comfort, and Gotoh 510 tuning machines with a whopping 21:1 gear ratio for peerless tuning retention. Combine these features with the already exceptional versatility of the 814ce, and you have the ideal model for professionals who demand the best!
Grand Auditorium body
Taylor's Grand Auditorium (GA) body shape is considered the ultimate all-rounder by many guitarists due to its exceptional versatility. Boasting a balanced frequency response from low to high, the GA has the adaptability to apply itself perfectly to both fingerstyle and flatpicking. Whatever kind of music you play, the hearty midrange output is perfect for both solo performers and ensemble players alike. Whether you're tracking in the studio, busking on the street, or performing on the stage, the Grand Auditorium can do it all.
The body back and sides are constructed using Indian rosewood, which creates a warm tonal foundation with a generous low-end energy. The top is built using Sitka spruce - a Taylor favourite - which provides the perfect soundboard for this exceptional model. The understated natural finish is protected by a layer of gloss to protect and preserve the wood for as long as possible, allowing it to age gracefully.
Fitted to the body via a scarf joint is a supple yet supportive tropical mahogany neck. The neck has been treated to a satin finish to prevent unwanted stickiness or tackiness from impeding your movement. Paired with the neck is a luxurious ebony fingerboard, which is adorned with Taylor's Element inlays to guide your way in style. Ebony binding ensures smooth transitions between each and every fret. The elegantly shaped Venetian cutaway makes it even easier to reach the upper frets.
Expression System 2 Electronics
Taylor's exclusive Expression System 2 pickup is fitted in the 814ce to give you unparalleled amplification. The ES2 pickup features three uniquely positioned and individually calibrated pickup sensors that faithfully transmit the natural tones of the 814ce through recording equipment or an amplifier. Taylor have patented this behind-the-saddle design and it is one which captures all the tone on offer from the 814ce.
Pale non-figured maple binding trims the top, whilst an abalone rosette encircles the soundhole. The ebony bridge features ebony dot bridge pins that complement the rosewood pickguard.
Taylor have ensured that you can keep your 814ce DLX electro acoustic guitar remains well-protected and safely stored by including a deluxe hardshell case.
