Taylor’s flagship models have been refined and improved and the result is amazing. This Taylor 814ce V-Brace comes equipped with the newly released V-Class™ bracing, emphasising the musical and tonal characteristics of both a Grand Auditorium and a true Taylor. Other features are a way thinner finish, making it a very open sounding guitar from the first day on and the use of protein glue for enhanced sound transport.
Taylor’s V-Class™ bracing
The Taylor 814ce V-Brace acoustic-electric Grand Auditorium boasts V-Class™ bracing, which functions as a new sonic engine for the guitar. Not only does it enhance the volume and sustain, it also changes the soundboard movement in a way that improves the guitar’s natural intonation, or “in-tuneness.” The result is more power in the upper register and more harmonic agreement between all fretted notes, which helps chord voicings sing like never before. Players who love the deep lows and sparkling highs of rosewood will appreciate how well behaved the overtones are as notes bloom.
Superb Material & Craftsmanship
The Taylor 814ce V-Brace with it’s beautiful Sitka spruce top and Indian rosewood back and sides. A rosewood pickguard and maple binding and backstrip make this a special guitar. You can see, feel and hear the craftsmanship, love and attention the folks at Taylors’ put into this gorgeous Grand Auditorium. You will need stamina for this, because once you pick it it’s very hard to put it down again.
