Presenting the all new Builder's Edition version of the Taylor 814CE Rosewood Grand Auditorium, featuring an Adirondack Spruce Top.

The 814ce has long been considered the quintessential Taylor guitar, thanks to its classic rosewood and Sitka 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, Taylor is bringing the 814ce to their 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 high-end 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.

Additional comfort-enhancing woodworking details that distinguish this edition from its standard-model counterpart include an elegantly sculpted beveled cutaway for effortless high-register access, along with a beveled mahogany armrest that provides a smooth surface for the player’s strumming arm.

Other refinements include nuanced
alterations in the taper of the body, a modified V-Class voicing, and a subtle alteration to the gloss finish. (This is the only Builder’s Edition model to feature a gloss finish to highlight the beautiful contouring of the body.) The back and sides boast a Kona edgeburst.

Other premium appointments include Gotoh 510 tuning machines in antique gold, which offer a highly precise 21:1 gear ratio, a contoured Curve Wing bridge (exclusive to Builder’s Edition models), alternating maple and black top purfling with rosewood edge trim, and a rosewood pickguard.

The Builder’s Edition 814ce ships with ES2 electronics
and a deluxe brown hardshell guitar case.
