The 814ce V-Class take Taylor's flagship rosewood model to all new levels of sonic excellence while still giving you all the features you love. Pairing Taylor's exclusive V-Class bracing with rosewood and spruce, the 814ce V-Class still comes with all the 800 Series tonal and aesthetic refinements that made the first incarnation of the revamped model a true favorite of acoustic players everywhere. Amazing acoustic amplification is provided by onboard Taylor Expression System 2 electronics. Whether you're a gigging or session musician, or a collector and enthusiast who is interested in drawing more musical inspiration from the flexibility of a unique instrument, the 814ce V-Class will make a wonderful addition to your collection!

Patented V-Class Bracing Meets Rosewood & Spruce
Taylor's revolutionary V-Class bracing helps improve sustain and volume, and behaves like an acoustic transducer for the top of guitar. In addition to enhancing volume and sustain, it manipulates the soundboard energy in a way that improves intonation. This yields greater volume and power in the upper register and improves the sonic arrangement of fundamental notes and overtones. Paired with rich-sounding rosewood and Sitka spruce in Taylor's versatile Grand Auditorium shape, this 814ce still has all the tonal depth, complexity, and versatility as it did before, but with more overtones, sustain, and sonic horsepower.

800 Series Tonal and Aesthetic Refinements
Taylor's 800 Series is the culmination of tone-enhancing options and elegant aesthetic refinements, all of which were selected by master luthier and guitar designer, Andy Powers. A thinner, 3.5 mil finish allows for greater resonance, customized wood thicknesses optimize the projection of the Grand Auditorium body shape, and hide glue adhesives employ a greater transfer of energy. Mother-of-pearl Element inlays for the fretboard and headstock complement the natural, smoky ebony fretboard and headstock overlay. Maple bindings, rosewood top trim, a rosewood pickguard, and a striking abalone rosette trimmed with rosewood round out the stunning aesthetics.

Amazing Acoustic Amplification
The Taylor Expression System 2 is simply an amazing achievement in the world of acoustic amplification. The system really captures the natural sound of the guitar when plugged in. Simple and adjustable, the three piezo pick ups mounted behind the saddle create a more clear and accurate sound. The subtle and sleek three knob active preamp section allows the player to increase or decrease the desired amount of bass and treble and control output volume.

Fell in Love-My first chord


Beautifully design and sounding guitar. Fell in love with it when I played the first chord!



The Hype is True


This is the newly designed bracing system. Very light to the touch. Great separation of notes with nice overtones. The middle is bell like and clear. Playing with a pick and finger style with equal satisfaction. Responds nicely to subtle changes in expression. Not a bluegrass canon, but extremely satisfying for everything else.
