The 814ce has long been considered the quintessential Taylor guitar thanks to
its classic rosewood/spruce tonewood pairing in tandem with Taylor’s flagship
cutaway Grand Auditorium body style. Together, the rich tone, musical versatility
and signature playability have given players a refined workhorse tool for many
different playing styles and musical applications. Now, we’re bringing the 814ce
to our Builder’s Edition collection, further enhancing its performance virtues with a
suite of premium craftsmanship details.
Among the suite of material refinements are a soundboard upgrade from solid Sitka
spruce to a carefully matched four-piece top of solid Adirondack spruce. The highend
craftsmanship reflected in the Builder’s Edition philosophy acknowledges the
evolving future of the world’s forests, where a great soundboard will require careful
woodworking joinery to utilize smaller sizes of the high-grade timber preferred for an
heirloom instrument. The artful craftsmanship yields a high-quality soundboard and
displays a beautifully consistent grain structure.
