Notes: Taylor acoustic guitars are renowned for their reliability, consistency and technical sophistication, which have made them the standard for working performers for decades. The nylon string version of their flagship 814 series instruments, the 814CE-N incorporates the same Grand Auditorium body size, Venetian cutaway, and 14 fret neck to create a crossover guitar equally conversant with jazz chord melody, bossa nova and fingerstyle repertoire in a variety of genres.

Steel string players will appreciate the comfort of the radiused ebony fingerboard, and unimpeded access to the full 20 fret range. The generous 15 1/2" body enhances lower frequency response, with bracing specifically optimized for nylon string performance. Finally, the innovative ES-N active pickup system uses all-magnetic sensors for exceptionally accurate amplification and enhanced feedback suppression, with volume and tone controls easily accessible on the upper treble side.

Crafted of all solid tonewoods, the 814CE-N is lightweight and responsive: at barely 4lb the guitar is comfy and well balanced on the lap or the strap. The 1 7/8" neck has a slim, comfy "D" profile, and a solid ebony fingerboard with graceful floral inlays.

This example is in immaculate condition, free of playwear, with smooth low action over a fresh high-precision setup. An exceptionally versatile performer, and a ready-to-play solution, unplugged or amplified. A rare find, this scarce model is a welcome solution for fingerstyle performers of all styles. One only: call now.

Setup: This instrument is strung with high tension nylon strings. The guitar will accommodate lighter strings, according to preference.
