Order now for Delivery on Sunday
Introduced in 1994, the Grand Auditorium has earned a place as Taylor's most popular body design.
The 814 model name indicates that this guitar is a part of the 800-series, which uses a Sitka Spruce top on Indian Rosewood back and sides.
The 14 in the name labels this as a Grand Auditorium, and the CE means that it is a cutaway with electronics.
At guitarguitar, we award our used gear a grade from 1-5 according to its overall condition, with 5 being the best.
This item was appraised as follows:
Body: 3 - Instrument has been used and shows evidence of its life in the forms of checking, chips and other superficial wear and tear.
Metal parts and hardware may be mildly tarnished or stained and cosmetically imperfect.
Neck: 4 -The frets are in good order and the instrument plays cleanly and intonates accurately across the fingerboard.
Additional Information: Guitar in excellent condition
considering its age! The body is lightly scratched all over, the top has some
slightly harsher scratches on the top around the cutaway.
Its definitely worth noting that this model is different from the current models in the sense that the tuners are Grover tuners instead of the current generic tuners and the nut is brass as opposed to the black graphite one on the 2020 model.
The most notable difference is the pickup - The current model is sporting the ES2 pickup and this one has Fishman Prefix preamp fitted.
The fingerboard is gorgeous and dark and the frets have little pitting present.
This guitar has been restrung with D'Addario strings.
Accessories Included with this item are as follows: Original hard case.
