Taylor 814ce DLX Steel String Guitar, Natural (No Longer Available-Discontinued)


Instrument Categories: , , ,

The Taylor 814ce DLX is a luxurious Grand Auditorium body shape which pairs a Sitka spruce top, Indian rosewood sides and back with Taylor’s patented V-Class bracing to reach new levels of tonal performance.

*Note: The Taylor 814ce DLX is no longer available and has been discontinued by the builder. We keep this post for historic purposes and uses.

One of Taylor’s most popular shapes, the Grand Auditorium body is a versatile general-purpose guitar. Its width is similar to a dreadnought but with a much curvier shape which changes the response and dynamics. It is equally well suited to finger style or strumming so you can use it for many different styles.

The addition of the V-class bracing to the Taylor 814ce DLX changes the response on the top and it was designed to produce more powerful notes all along the fret board, increase projection and sustain and improve intonation.

Tonally, the classic combination of Sitka spruce and Indian rosewood has a lovely balance of warm overtones and sparkle, which is accentuated by this new bracing system producing clear bell like highs.

The radius style rosewood armrest adds a level of comfort to the playing experience that really cuts down on fatigue and lets hours of playing time melt away.

Other premium details on the Taylor 814ce DLX such as the smooth Gotoh 510 tuners, Element style fret board inlay, maple binding and smoky ebony fret board really make it easy to understand why this is a deluxe model.

The Taylor 814ce DLX is sold with the original Taylor hard shell case.
