Taylor Builder's Edition 814ce Grand Auditorium Indian Rosewood Acoustic-Electric

The Taylor Builder's Edition 814ce Grand Auditorium Indian Rosewood Acoustic-Electric guitar stands as a pinnacle of acoustic craftsmanship and tonal brilliance. Meticulously crafted with the utmost attention to detail, this instrument offers a truly exceptional playing experience. The Grand Auditorium body shape provides a balanced and versatile sonic character, while the premium Indian Rosewood back and sides paired with a solid Sitka spruce top produce a lush, rich, and nuanced sound with remarkable sustain and clarity. Equipped with Taylor's state-of-the-art V-Class bracing and Expression System 2 electronics, it delivers unrivaled projection and amplified fidelity. The Builder's Edition 814ce is not just a guitar; it's a work of art, designed for musicians who demand the very best in performance, comfort, and aesthetics.

Overview

  • Solid Indian rosewood for warm response and lush overtones
  • Adirondack spruce top for unmatched volume and power
  • Beveled armrest and cutaway for enhanced playability
  • All-gloss finish with Kona edgeburst for back/sides
  • Includes ES2 electronics and deluxe hardshell case
  • Made in El Cajon, California, USA

The 814ce has long been considered Taylor's flagship acoustic-electric guitar thanks to its mix of lush tone, playing comfort and all-purpose musical appeal. Here, we're thrilled to present the next evolution of this classic model: the Builder's Edition 814ce. For this version, we've kept the solid Indian rosewood back and sides and paired them with a four-piece Adirondack spruce top, a combo that yields an enticing blend of low-end warmth, treble-range clarity and remarkable power, with our V-Class bracing inside to draw out more of the blooming overtones and rich sustain that players love. A handful of comfort-focused enhancements, such as a beveled armrest and cutaway and a subtle body taper, elevate the relaxed, accommodating feel of the Grand Auditorium body, while a striking full-body gloss finish and Kona burst for the back and sides raise this model's visual profile. Whether you're looking for an all-purpose musical workhorse or an heirloom-quality guitar to augment your collection, the Builder's Edition 814ce makes a compelling case as the most quintessentially "Taylor" guitar we've ever built.
