 Taylor’s popular 814ce offers players the ultimate all-purpose guitar.  Its balance, warmth and articulation are great for fingerstyle, it has enough punch as a strummer to front a band, and the top-end power will fuel lead runs without getting shrill. It’s a great choice for a gigging player looking for one guitar that can cover it all. Taylor's flagship model sounds even better now with V-Class bracing.

•  Grand Auditorium Shape - Taylor’s signature shape embodies the ultimate all-purpose acoustic.
•  Sitka Spruce Top Woods - The soundboard choice for most guitars, Sitka spruce produces a broad dynamic range and accommodates a versatile range of playing styles.
•  Indian Rosewood Body Wood - The tonewood superstar. Popular, traditional, and versatile, Bob Taylor puts Indian rosewood among the greatest tonewoods ever.
•  Expression System 2 Electronics capture more of a guitar’s dynamic properties using a breakthrough behind-the-saddle design.
•  Venetian Cutaway - The Venetian cutaway is known for its soft, round lines. The sloping peak of the cutaway will vary depending on the shape of the guitar.
•  V-Class Bracing - A revolutionary design that balances the flexibility and stability of the top, V-Class bracing produces unmatched sustain, volume, and intonation.
