Overview

Taylor 814ce-SB Electro Acoustic Guitar, Sitka Spruce Top, Indian Rosewood Body, Tobacco Sunburst Top Finish

The 814CE-SB from Taylor is the ultimate all-purpose guitar. It's superb construction and tonewood choices offer guitarists the perfect balance: plenty of warmth and articulation for fingerstyle players; plenty of punch for pick users, with enough top-end power to fuel lead runs without getting shrill. This excellent, premium-grade Electro Acoustic boasts the kind of sounds that are enough to make even the most discerning acoustic guitarist weak at the knees.

Premium Grade Electronics, Excellent Tonewoods, Highly Versatile

The mid-sized Grand Auditorium is Taylor's most popular guitar shape, giving players the presence and sound of a larger Dreadnought, whilst offering the playability of a smaller Grand Concert, and being versatile enough to meet them both in the middle when it comes to playstyle preference. Featuring a solid Sitka spruce top with Tobacco Sunburst finish, Indian Rosewood back and sides, Taylor's ES2 pickup system, high-grade 3.5mm gloss finish and a whole host of premium-grade appointments, the 814CE-SB is a force to be reckoned with.

Exquisite Tonewoods

The 814CE-SB is constructed with a Solid Sitka Spruce top and an Indian Rosewood back and sides. Sitka Spruce is one of the most commonly used tonewoods for acoustic guitar tops, and helps generate a broad dynamic range, acommodating numerous play styles, whether you want to go with all-out aggressive strumming or light-fingerpicking.

As one of the most popular and musically rich tonewoods, Indian Rosewood offers a sweeping frequency range at both ends of the tonal spectrum. This wood sounds deeper in the low ends and brighter at the top ends that other woods can manage. This iconic wood is incredibly versatile, and when partnered with Solid Spruce can produce a harmonically rich voice, with a bright and sparkling top end.

The 3.5mm gloss finish on the 814CE-SB helps to preserve the premium tone-producing capability of this versatile Grand Auditorium acoustic guitar. This ultra-thin finish provides excellent protection for the tonewoods, but is thin enough to allow the woods to "breathe", resulting in a much more natural sounding instrument.

High Grade Electronics

With Taylor's very own ES2 (Expression System 2) you get a revolutionary pickup design that's been engineered to deliver the latest in Taylor's ongoing innovation in acoustic guita amplification. Complete with a patented behind-the-saddle pickup with three uniquely positioned and individually calibrated pickup sensors, the ES2 captures a much more dynamic range of acoustic sound than any of its predecessors.

The ES2 is complimented by Taylor's custom-designed "professional audio"-grade preamp, which produces a highly-responsive and incredible amplified tone. The combination of the ES2 with this preamp ensures that whether you're on stage and playing through a PA or amp, or even recording in the studio, your guitar signal is recreated as faithfully as possible.
