          The Taylor 814ce Builders Edition Grand Auditorium acoustic-electric guitar takes an iconic model to new heights of craftsmanship and tone. Taylor's expert luthiers have enhanced the solid Adirondack spruce top, tapered the body and modified the V-Class bracing for a balanced acoustic voice with shimmering highs and tight lows. The ES2 pickup system and onboard preamp provide plugged-in performance with intuitive controls to shape your sound.

          ES2 Pickup System Delivers Natural Tone and Control

          The 814ce Builder's Edition comes equipped with Taylor's ES2 pickup system, featuring an under-saddle piezo and preamp with volume, bass and treble controls. Simply plug in to an amp or PA and the ES2 delivers a rich, realistic tone, allowing you to adjust the bass and treble levels to suit your needs.

          Adirondack Spruce Top and Tapered Body for Full, Nuanced Sound

          At the heart of the 814ce Builders Edition is a top-grade solid Adirondack spruce soundboard, paired with Indian rosewood back and sides. The spruce provides a broad tonal range with articulate highs and a focused midrange, while the rosewood body produces warm, complex overtones. Taylor's luthiers have also tapered the body and redesigned the V-Class bracing for enhanced resonance and sustain.

          Sculpted Cutaway and Premium Appointments

          An elegantly sculpted cutaway provides easy access to the upper frets for intricate single-note runs and chord voicings. The 814ce Builders Edition also features premium touches like Gotoh 510 tuners, a contoured ebony bridge, maple binding and a gloss finish that highlights the guitar's refined contours.

          Transport in Style with Deluxe Hardshell Case

          A deluxe hardshell case comes included, providing sturdy protection for your investment. The plush-lined case features stylish brown exterior, heavy-duty hardware and accessory compartments to carry everything you need.
