It’s finally here: the Builder’s Edition 814ce, an ultra-refined evolution of Taylor’s flagship Grand Auditorium acoustic-electric guitar. Featuring back and sides of solid Indian rosewood paired with an Adirondack spruce top, this model yields a powerful, yet sophisticated voice with warm lows, pristine trebles and a lush, blooming overtone character. Inside, Taylor’s game-changing V-Class bracing architecture coaxes out more of the harmonic complexity that players love in the rosewood/spruce tonewood pairing, also dialing up more volume and longer sustain for an exceptionally rich sound. The Builder’s Edition 814ce boasts a set of comfort-enhancing design touches to provide a truly seamless, responsive feel, including chamfered body edges, a beveled armrest offering a smooth surface for your strumming arm, and a beveled cutaway for supreme playability even at the guitar’s highest register. It’s capped off with a beautiful full-body gloss finish and a Kona burst color treatment for the back and sides, Element fretboard and peghead inlays, and built-in ES2 electronics for authentic, clear plugged-in tone. Crafted at the intersection of tone, playability and visual beauty, the Builder’s Edition 814ce offers a truly elevated playing experience that’s sure to inspire musicians of all styles.
