Taylor's popular 814ce offers players the ultimate all-purpose guitar. Its balance, warmth and articulation are great for fingerstyle, it has enough punch as a strummer to front a band, and the top-end power will fuel lead runs without getting shrill. Its a great choice for a gigging player looking for one guitar that can cover it all. The revoicing of the 800 Series has brought greater warmth, a more mature midrange, and a looser, more luxurious low end to the 814ce, thanks in part to the customized bracing and a new, custom-calibrated Elixir HD Light string-gauge set. Premium appointments include maple binding and back strip, rosewood top edge trim, a rosewood pickguard, Taylors new Element fretboard inlay in mother-of-pearl, a marbled fretboard, and new Expression System 2 acoustic electronics. The guitar features a Venetian cutaway and includes a Taylor deluxe hardshell case.

What an absolutely wonderful guitar. Tone and play-ability are about as close to perfection as I have ever played. I own Martins, Gibsons and a Breedlove and this beauty gets almost all of my attention now.

On my 40th birthday, my wife told me I could go get a new acoustic and basically had no budget. I expected to walk out with a Martin, but this guitar was in my hands for 10 seconds and I was sold. Simply fantastic for playability, this guitar sounds balanced and clear. Gorgeous to look at, even better to play.
