Over the years, Taylor Guitars has celebrated milestones in its history by releasing anniversary-model instruments, but to mark its 40th anniversary in business, the company has completely redesigned its popular 800 Series guitars.
Taylor had previously used anniversary models to introduce new features and innovations, but the changes, modifications and innovations on the new 800 Series instruments are the company’s most significant and extensive ever.
With Andy Powers taking over from Bob Taylor as the company’s main guitar designer, and with the introduction of David Hoseler’s revamped Expression System, this is nothing less than an entirely new generation of Taylor guitars. As the 814ce is the best-selling model in Taylor’s 800 Series, we decided to check out the new version for this review.
