Taylor 814ce Deluxe V-Class Guitar

This luxurious rosewood/spruce Taylor 814ce Deluxe V-Class Acoustic-Electric Guitar reaches new levels of performance thanks to our patented V-Class bracing. By coaxing a more orderly response from the top, this game-changing bracing design allows the 814ce DLX to produce more powerful notes everywhere on the fretboard, along with stronger projection, longer sustain, and improved intonation, creating a more musical and expressive playing experience for guitarists. The classic pairing of Indian rosewood and Sitka spruce sparkles with new intensity thanks to the new internal bracing architecture, bringing out more of rosewood's naturally warm overtones and producing clear, bell-like highs. Premium details include a radius-style rosewood armrest and Gotoh 510 tuners that feature a precise 21:1 gear ratio, delivering an ultra-smooth playing experience. And with deluxe features like maple binding, mother-of-pearl Element fretboard and peghead inlays, a smoky ebony fretboard, rosewood top trim, and maple fretboard/peghead purfling lines, it's easy to see why the 814ce DLX is one of our most appealing rosewood models.

V-Class Bracing

- More Volume: V-Class guitar bracing controls the top's flexibility, creating a more orderly rocking motion across both sides of the top. The controlled flexing movement produces greater volume.
- Longer Sustain: V-Class bracing maintains stiffness along the middle of the guitar, in the direction of the strings. That rigidity keeps the strings in motion, producing notes that resonate longer before fading out.
- Better Intonation: V-Class bracing makes the top more in tune with the vibrating strings. This eliminates much of the interference that causes some notes to waver and sound slightly out of tune. As a result, notes and chords played anywhere on the neck are more consistent and in tune with each other.

Grand Auditorium Body Shape

- Body Length: 20" / Body Width: 16" / Body Depth: 4 5/8"
- Taylor's signature shape embodies the ultimate all-purpose acoustic.
- An original Bob Taylor design introduced in 1994
- Full in the lower register, present in the midrange, and sparkling on the treble strings
- Their most popular shape and a good place to begin your search

Sitka Spruce Top

The most commonly used wood for guitar tops, Sitka generates a broad dynamic range and accommodates numerous playing styles, from aggressive strumming to fingerpicking.

Indian Rosewood

Indian rosewood's sweeping frequency range at both ends of the tonal spectrum has made it one of the most popular and musically rich tonewoods. Its deep lows can assert a throaty growl, while bright, sparkling treble notes ring out with bell-like, high-fidelity clarity.

Expression System 2

The Taylor Expression System 2 (ES2) is a revolutionary pickup design that delivers the latest in Taylor's ongoing innovation in acoustic guitar amplification. The heart of the Expression System 2 is Taylor's patented behind-the-saddle pickup, which features three uniquely positioned and individually calibrated pickup sensors. The location of the sensors enables a more dynamic range of acoustic sound to be captured than ever before. Together with Taylor's custom-designed "professional audio"-grade preamp, this system produces exceptional amplified tone and responsiveness. On stage through a PA, plugged into your favorite acoustic amplifier, or direct into recording software, the Expression System 2 faithfully conveys the voice of your Taylor guitar.

Venetian Cutaway

Standard on all "ce" models in the 300 Series through the Presentation Series, the Venetian cutaway is known for its soft, round lines. The sloping peak of the cutaway will vary depending on the shape of the guitar. The Grand Concert, Grand Auditorium, and Grand Symphony have a steeper slope, while the Dreadnought and Jumbo are a bit flatter. Our Grand Concert nylon-string models also feature a subtle, flatter slope, while our 100 and 200 Series cutaway models incorporate our flattest slope.

Overall: Just to pre-qualify; I am a Acoustic guitar freak. I have been fortunate in life and own many high end guitars. I had never owned a Taylor and in 2005 I tried out about 4 814ce’s (including 600,700 and 900 models) in a single music shop. The balance and layered sound was stunning. The 814ce was just the best in the model lineup and I walked with one. After recording with it for about a year and not being able to put it down, I bought another 814ce. This one was a 2005 Cocobolo L10 LTD and it was smoking. The new expression system came out and I auditioned the top models again and pulled the trigger. (Both pick up systems sound very similar live but must be tweeted when recording) I just can’t seem to find a Taylor 600 series and up that just doesn’t sound great out of the box. Taylor is the only guitar company I feel good about ordering a big sight unseen. I love my Martin’s, Gibson’s, Guild’s etc.. but I said all of that to say this; The new Taylor 814ce Deluxe is the Stratovarius of guitars! The V bracing is a game changer. It’s like buying a 40 year old standard classic guitar that has opened up completely. A balanced sound that only a vintage guitar easily 3 or 4 times the price would sound. Trust me guys I know. It is truly a marvel to hear.The 21:1 Gotoh tuners make sure you are perfectly tuned and in pitch. There is something about the Adirondack spruce bracing that just nails the very essence of the Taylor soul. Balanced, warm, rich and deep. I name my favorite guitars after girls. (Not very original right BB..RIP) This girl you’ll want to bring home to meet Mom. Thank you zZounds for making it easier to purchase with confidence.

Overall: So I have gone to I’ve 20 different guitar stores (I travel different states just about every week). Tried several guitars and before I played this baby my fav was a Martin GPC-35E. Once I played this Taylor all bets were off this was a MUST have. The tone and most amazing intonation ever. Don’t get me wrong the Martin is great but this took to my ears and fingers like it was meant to be. Been playing for 40 years and to me and my style this was a match made in heaven. Just got it today and I may already need new strings. Lol. Playing it till “my fingers bleed”. Cannot put it down. Price: Well its pricy but IMO and from playing all types of high end guitars this plays like a $8K Martin. Pick one up you will not be sorry!
