The Taylor 814ce LTD NAMM Exclusive Electro Acoustic Guitar in Natural is a premium model that boasts exceptional build quality, carefully selected appointments, and a breath-taking character. Released as part of a limited run exclusive to dealers who attended Winter NAMM 2018, the 814ce is a thing of beauty. Each model is supplied with a Taylor deluxe hardshell case, so that you can keep yours safe and sound in style.
Exquisite Grand Auditorium body
The 814ce is shaped to the Grand Auditorium body profile, which puts it slightly smaller in size compared to dreadnought. Blessed with a Venetian cutaway, the 814ce is a joy to perform with whether you play fingerstyle or with a pick. Both ensemble and solo performers will appreciate the comfortable playability of this extraordinary guitar.
The body back and sides are crafted using cocobolo, a dense and stiff tonewood that offers a bright tone. The tempered low-end energy ensures that trebles shine through beautifully. The top is built using "Singing" Sitka spruce, which creates the perfect soundboard to project a glorious output with spectacular verve and flexibility. Reinforced using performance bracing with hide glue and top braces, the soundboard resonates freely whilst maintaining a sturdy hold.
Unique features for the limited-edition NAMM exclusive 814ce include ebony binding, paua rosette edged with ebony/Ivoroid, a full-gloss body finish with shaded edge burst back/sides/neck, and abalone-dot bridge pins.
Joined to the body is a sturdy yet highly responsive neck, which is paired with a delightfully luxurious fingerboard to guarantee supreme playability. Sitting sweetly in the hand, you can glide along its entire length effortlessly. Thanks to the elegantly carved Venetian cutaway, each and every fret is within easy reach. Your way is guided by MOP Element fretboard inlays, adding a stylish touch that perks up the dark finish of the fingerboard.
Taylor's proprietary ES2 system
The 814ce electro-acoustic is home to Taylor's Expression System 2 (ES2) electronics, which features a combination of a behind-the-saddle pickup and custom-designed "professional-audio"-grade preamp. Thanks to some ingenious design on Taylor's part, the ES2 system faithfully translates the rich acoustic timbre of the guitar when performing via an amplifier. The intuitive control layout allows you to deftly attenuate the guitar's output to suit any performance environment.
The 814ce LTD NAMM Exclusive is equipped with Taylor gold tuning machines, which uphold tuning integrity with precision throughout the most demanding of performances. The bridge provides a flush connection between string and body to maximise resonant transfer to improve sustain. The result is a truly remarkable model that can keep up with the most enthusiastic of guitarists.
