Taylor 814ce Builders Edition top quality all solid electro acoustic guitar +case

Chris (MD. Guitar Mania) says:
“This is simply a stunning guitar in every respect. It really is possibly the BEST acoustic guitar in the world! Why? Well, how do you judge and value a guitar? Playability? This guitar plays superb; the action is low enough to be comfortable but high enough for enthusiastic strumming to ring clear. Looks? Just look at it! Elegant and classy! Tone? Well, the way Taylor select their woods, store and craft them into a thing of beauty, together with their attention to detail and quality control makes it all come together in a beautiful tone. All subjective of course, and this is just my opinion, but EVERY member of staff here at Guitar Mania loves / owns or wants a Taylor guitar. There really is nothing to compare.
Playability:
Here at Guitar Mania we take great pride in our Taylor guitars. Every one gets check and set up as required so they have a great action as well as sounding great. They are all stored in a humidity controlled room so that they stay that way too. Jon, our in-house Taylor Guru is in charge of the set ups and general well being of these lovely guitars. He is a Master Level factory trained technician so rest assured you’re in good hands. We have a thriving Taylor Service Centre that he takes care of and our after sales service is second to none.
If you have tried to save money and bought from somewhere online and found your action is high, it’s most likely because it’s been stored in a damp draughty warehouse or cellar and especially applicable to this country, been exposed to excess humidity. This causes the body to swell up and becomes apparent by a high string height (action). You won’t get that here.
All Taylor guitars are stored in a humidity controlled environment.
They are all set up and checked over when they arrive and again before dispatch.
Buy in confidence !
More info:
The 814ce has long been considered Taylor’s flagship acoustic-electric guitar thanks to its mix of lush tone, playing comfort and all-purpose musical appeal. Here, we’re thrilled to present the next evolution of this classic model: the Builder’s Edition 814ce. For this version, we’ve kept the solid Indian rosewood back and sides and paired them with a four-piece Adirondack spruce top, a combo that yields an enticing blend of low-end warmth, treble-range clarity and remarkable power, with our V-Class bracing inside to draw out more of the blooming overtones and rich sustain that players love. A handful of comfort-focused enhancements, such as a beveled armrest and cutaway and a subtle body taper, elevate the relaxed, accommodating feel of the Grand Auditorium body, while a striking full-body gloss finish and Kona burst for the back and sides raise this model’s visual profile. Whether you’re looking for an all-purpose musical workhorse or an heirloom-quality guitar to augment your collection, the Builder’s Edition 814ce makes a compelling case as the most quintessentially “Taylor” guitar we’ve ever built.

Top: Adirondack Spruce.
Known for its high volume ceiling and dynamic, lively response, Adirondack spruce retains exceptional clarity even with an aggressive attack.

Indian Rosewood
The tonewood superstar. Popular, traditional, and versatile, Bob Taylor puts Indian rosewood among the greatest tonewoods ever.

Expression System® 2.
The Expression System® 2 captures more of a guitar’s dynamic properties using a breakthrough behind-the-saddle design.

Beveled Cutaway:
Our beveled cutaway design provides a more player-friendly feel for guitarists who utilize every inch of the fretboard. It features a compound design with a smoothened edge along the corner of the body between the end of the cutaway and the neck heel, providing a more comfortable feel for the fretting hand.

V-Class Bracing:
Our patented V-Class bracing is a revolutionary new pattern — a new sonic engine — that marks a major shift away from traditional steel-string bracing patterns.
