The Taylor 814ce DLX V-Class Electro Acoustic Guitar in Natural finish features Taylor's pioneering V-Class bracing pattern, which does the improbable task of elevating the performance of Taylor's already outstanding 814ce DLX. Deluxe appointments are fitted throughout, including Gotoh 510 tuning machines, a sumptuous radius-style armrest, and binding/trim to complement the understated finish. Each model is supplied with a Taylor Deluxe hardshell case, encouraging you to get out and about to gigs in style.
Grand Auditorium body
Taylor's Grand Auditorium (GA) body shape offers versatility for those who like to switch between fingerstyle and flatpicking and need a model that can comfortably segue between musical styles. Built using resilient Indian rosewood for the back and sides coupled with the Sitka spruce soundboard, the 814ce balances comfortability and tonal expression beautifully. 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.
V-Class bracing pattern
The revolutionary V-Class bracing pattern endows the 814ce DLX with a range of improved characteristics that includes increased soundboard flexibility for greater volume. Superior stiffness along the middle of the guitar ensures that strings maintain motion for length resonance to result in enviable sustain. Not only that but intonation is enhanced so that chords and notes retain greater consistency across the entire length of the neck. From bedroom practise to professional studio recordings to hitting the stadium stage, the 814ce DLX offers peerless performance to ensure immaculate tones every time.
Joined to the body via a scarf joint is a supple yet supportive tropical mahogany neck, which offers a generous 25.5-inch scale length to optimise string consistency. The satin finish across the neck prevents stickiness or tackiness from holding you back during performances. Married to the neck is a glorious West African ebony fingerboard, which is home to 20 frets that are adorned with unique Element inlays to guide your way. Ebony binding ensures smooth transitions between each and every fret, whilst the elegant Venetian cutaway allows the highest reaches of the neck to be accessed comfortably.
Expression System 2 Electronics
The 814ce DLX benefits from Taylor's Expression System 2 electronics system, which translates the rich timbre of the guitar with the utmost clarity when playing via an amplifier. Taylor's ground-breaking behind-the-saddle design captures the subtle nuances of your performance by closely monitoring the pendulum-like movement of sound transferred from the strings via crystals installed behind the saddle. With an enhanced preamp design, the 814ce DLX offers a hotter output to make it simpler to plug-and-play.
Taylor have equipped the 814ce DLX with imperious hardware from headstock to end pin. Gotoh 510 tuning machines offer a mighty 21:1 gear ratio, which equates to solid and stable tuning integrity throughout the most demanding of performances. The body is equipped with a shapely radius-style rosewood armrest to afford a natural resting position for the picking arm. Maple binding and rosewood top trim complements the natural finish, whilst maple fretboard/peghead purfling line add increased finishing detail.
