Taylor’s popular acoustic/electric 814e shines as a superb 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. Equipped with Taylor Expression System 2 electronics, it makes 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, 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, rosewood pickguard, Element fretboard inlay, and smoky ebony fretboard.
