Fans of the classic rosewood/spruce tonewood pairing might find an exciting new musical avenue in the 814ce-N, a nylon-string edition of our flagship Grand Auditorium guitar. A slightly larger cousin to our Grand Concert nylon-string model in the 800 Series, this guitar benefits from Indian rosewood’s rich low end and treble-range brilliance, paired with solid Sitka spruce for clarity and projection. Guitars in the 800 Series are built with the utmost standards of precision and attention to detail, and this model is no different, with traditional hide glue used for the internal bracing and a lightweight, 4.5-mil gloss finish that helps preserve resonance. Classical players will feel at home on this model’s 20”-radiused fretboard, while the 1-⅞” nut width keeps things adequately spaced for intricate fingerstyle playing. The 814ce-N is appointed with maple binding, a single-ring abalone rosette with bound soundhole, mother-of-pearl inlays in our Element pattern, and classical nickel tuners. It ships with Taylor’s proprietary ES-N nylon-string acoustic pickup and a deluxe hardshell guitar case.
