2018 NAMM Limited Taylor 814CE featuring a solid "singing" Sitka Spruce top with solid Cocobolo back and sides. Cocobolo’s exotic complexion never fails to inspire. For this limited edition cutaway Grand Auditorium, the folks at Taylor knew exactly what to pair it with: “singing” Sitka spruce, part of a special cache of spruce from a tree whose wood features a wider, uniform grain structure and delivers an especially crisp, resonant sound. This tonewood combo delivers bold projection and a pleasing top-end shimmer, perfect for fingerpickers or any player craving an articulate acoustic voice with dynamic punch. Other features include Performance bracing with tone-enhancing hide glue, a single ring Paua abalone rosette edged with Ebony and ivoroid, Ebony binding, mother-of-pearl Element fretboard inlays, Paua/mother-of-pearl Nouveau peghead inlay (borrowed from the Presentation Series), abalone-dot bridge pins, thin 3.5mm gloss finish to enhance the body resonance, and a shaded edgeburst on the back, sides and neck. The guitar comes with onboard ES2 electronics, a special edition guitar label, and a Taylor deluxe hardshell case.
