Combining elegant aesthetics with tone-enhancing details, the 800 Series is Taylor's incredibly popular class of rosewood guitars. The 814ce DLX acoustic-electric Grand Auditorium features revolutionary V-Class bracing, which boosts volume evenly across the tonal spectrum, increases sustain, and improves the natural intonation of the instrument by creating a more synergistic response from the soundboard. This fosters a more harmonious relationship between the notes you play, helping chords to ring out in cohesive splendor. If you're a guitarist who appreciates the robust lows and crisp highs of rosewood topped with Sitka spruce, you'll relish how well mannered the overtones are as your notes bloom. While you delight in its beautiful tone, your eyes will savor the 814ce DLX's tasteful appointments and deluxe upgrades that include a comfortable radius-style rosewood armrest, rosewood top trim, maple binding and fingerboard/peghead purfling, precision 21:1 Gotoh 510 tuners, and a silky-smooth smoky ebony fingerboard with mother-of-pearl Element inlays.
