One (1) winner from the USA or Canada, and one (1) winner from France, Germany, the Netherlands, or the United Kingdom, will each receive a V-Class 814ce DLX acoustic-electric guitar, an approximate retail value of $3,999.99 (€3,429.49).
Our 800 Series Grand Auditorium has long been one of our most popular models, and the 814ce DLX only adds to that guitar’s legacy. A solid set of East Indian rosewood for the back and sides produces a warm, powerful low end and scooped mids for a delightfully rich sound, while a solid Sitka spruce top adds high-end clarity and sparkle. This guitar’s finely textured sound receives a boost from V-Class bracing, a new Taylor innovation that expands the capabilities of the 814ce DLX by adding sustain and volume to this already-powerful guitar. The new bracing design couples beautifully with the natural sonic hues of rosewood and spruce, enhancing these tonewoods’ natural shimmer and overtonal bloom. V-Class bracing also neutralizes the disorderly vibrations that lead to poor intonation, making this a more musical instrument all around.
Along with advances in its architecture and its naturally high-fidelity tone, the 814ce DLX also boasts a set of premium appointments designed to deliver stunning visual presence and a seamless, comfortable feel. A radius-style rosewood armrest provides a smooth surface for your strumming arm, while Gotoh 510 tuners help you dial in your guitar with a precise 21:1 gear ratio. Aesthetically, the 814ce DLX features maple binding, a smoky ebony fretboard, a rosewood pickguard, and rosewood trim, creating an organic visual style that contrasts beautifully with mother-of-pearl Element inlays on the fretboard and peghead. All in all, the 814ce DLX offers playability, rich tone, and attractive visuals, a total package for the lucky winners of the Summer Song giveaway.
