Taylor 814ce Brazilian LTD Acoustic-electric Guitar at a Glance:
A classic tonewoods combination - Sitka spruce and Brazilian rosewood
Nothing beats the sound of real Brazilian rosewood topped with spruce - and that's exactly what you get with the Taylor 814ce Brazilian LTD. It features a beautiful Sitka spruce top, which gives you wonderful projection and the perfect amount of sparkle. Add to that the balanced tone and astonishing projection of the this guitar's Brazilian rosewood back and sides, and you have a guitar with timeless tone.
Grand Auditorium body style gives you exceptional presence
Taylor's beloved Grand Auditorium body style, featured on this 814ce, employs the width and depth of the Dreadnought. But, its waist is narrower, which gives Grand Auditorium-bodied acoustic guitars a sleeker look, with more treble zing. The 814ce Brazilian LTD's Grand Auditorium body style also helps to sharpen the definition of each note, balancing out nicely withe the excellent projection of its Sitka spruce top. That makes it perfect whether you're finger or flatpicking.
Cutting-edge Taylor Expression System 2 electronics
If you play plugged in, then you're going to love the Taylor Expression System 2 (ES2) electronics built into your 814ce. The key to this fantastic system is the 3-section proprietary pickup located behind the saddle. Because of where it's positioned and how it's integrated into the 814ce Brazilian LTD's saddle, the ES2 pickup provides you with remarkably clear and accurate sound. In addition to a master volume control, a pair of tone controls let you tweak your highs and lows to get the sound you need, and a discreet phase switch offers vital onboard feedback suppression.
