ItÕs immediately obvious that TaylorÑwhich for decades has been raising the bar on the modern steel-string guitarÑhas taken its flagship model to the next level. -Acoustic Guitar, March 2017 This deluxe-edition 814ce takes a best-selling Taylor model to even greater heights. The 814ceÕs evergreen appeal comes from its impressive musical versatility, along with recent internal voicing upgrades that boost the warmth and produce a richer low-end response. The 814ce Deluxe sports a trio of additional premium enhancements: Adirondack spruce bracing that turbo-charges the tonal output; a beautifully rounded rosewood radius armrest for adding playing comfort; and Gotoh 510 tuners, which feature a 21:1 gear ratio for an ultra-smooth tuning experience. This is a fantastic choice for a discerning player looking for a high-performance guitar that can cover a mix of strumming, flatpicking and fingerstyle. Premium details include maple binding and back strip, rosewood top edge trim, a rosewood pickguard, TaylorÕs Element fretboard inlay in mother-of-pearl, a smoky ebony fretboard, and Expression System 2 acoustic electronics.
