METICULOUS DETAIL AND CRAFTSMANSHIP
Offering the ultimate in matched Spruce and Rosewood timbers, these instruments benefit from Taylor luthier Andy Powers and the manufacturing proficiency of Bob Taylor.
Each characteristic of the Taylor 800 Series has been meticulously detailed including bracing, wood thickness, glue, finish, strings, and electronics.
Each 800 Series instrument is finished with a re-designed aesthetic that looks tasteful and premium.
ROSEWOOD QUALITIES, SPRUCE SOPHISTICATION
All the Taylor 800 Series Acoustics features Indian Rosewood Back and Sides. Selected because of their balanced centre range, they're complimented by blooming bass and sizzling highs.
Matched with a Sitka Spruce top, this tonewood gives off a gentle broad dynamic score with crisp articulation.
These two popular tonewoods feature right across the 800 Series and feature in such guitars as the Taylor 814ce Acoustic.
A PLETHORA OF STYLES AND SIZES
The 800 Series comes in four flavours of body shape. Grand Auditorium, Grand Concert and Grand Orchestra are on offer via the standard and deluxe models, whilst the Grand Symphony body style is featured in the 800 Series Builder's Edition - the pièce de résistance of the Taylor family.
The Grand Concert was born in 1984 and is the most slim and compact of the series. Ideal for finger and flat-picking, it offers a more delicate and clear sonic value.
In 1994 Bob Taylor introduced the Grand Auditorium body shape. A truly balanced body that works for all styles of play, from strumming to flat-picking.
The Grand Orchestra is a bolder shape, and is rooted with deeper bass and mids - excellent for heavy strumming and a clear projection.
DELUXE MODELS FOR MORE REFINEMENT
The 800 Series offers a range of deluxe models, which have extra detailing and even a bevelled armrest for extra comfort.
These guitars have a truly unique voice and offer increased comfort, making them some of the most desirable in the Taylor 800 range.
NYLON GUITAR FOR THE INSPIRING CLASSICAL PLAYER
The 800 Series also features a Nylon string guitar, the Taylor 812ce-N. This guitar is ideal for the classical player that wants a streamlined, contemporary instrument with a full-bodied sound.
All the Taylor 800's come with V-Bracing and an Expression 2 Pickup system for performing with.
The Nylon Acoustic features an ES-N Pickup, which has been engineered to capture the essence of the nylon strings without colouring the sound.
