Builder's Edition 814ce Grand Auditorium LTD 50th Anniversary Acoustic/Electric Guitar with Hardshell Case

50th Anniversary Collection

Celebrating five decades of guitar-making with special, limited-edition models crafted to showcase top-tier tonewoods, exquisite appointments, exacting craftsmanship and the innovative spirit that defines Taylor Guitar's legacy


Two all-star tonewoods-Indian rosewood and sinker redwood-pair up to give players a colorful sonic palette to explore with the Grand Auditorium Builder's Edition 814ce LTD from Taylor's 2024 50th anniversary collection. Rosewood's rich lows and sparkling highs are legendary. Sinker redwood, taken from logs reclaimed from the rivers of Northern California, blends the warmth and touch sensitivity of cedar with remarkably bold projection and wide dynamic range. Together, the two woods deliver a level of tonal sophistication that's turbo-charged by Taylor's V-Class voicing architecture under the hood.

The guitar's sonic virtues are matched by a suite of ergonomic playing features that set the Builder's Edition experience apart. A beveled armrest, beveled cutaway, chamfered body edges and contoured Curve Wing bridge enhance the comfort of Taylor's classic, player-favorite Grand Auditorium model. Visual details include a single-ring rosette featuring green abalone inlays accented with rosewood/maple/black purfling; top purfling of alternating black/maple/rosewood layers; a rosewood-bound soundhole; and an Indian rosewood pickguard. The neck features Element fretboard and peghead inlays in gold-hued mother of-pearl; maple purfling around the fretboard and peghead; silver side dots; and Gotoh 510 antique gold tuners. The rosewood back and sides are shaded with a Kona edgeburst, with a subtle, contrasting maple purfling line around the back. A gloss finish wraps the body in a luxurious luster that highlights the beautifully sculpted contours.

Signature anniversary touches include ebony bridge pins with gold acrylic dots and a commemorative 50th anniversary label inside the guitar. The model includes onboard ES2 electronics and ships in a Taylor deluxe hardshell case.

Production will be limited to 1,974 guitars worldwide


Grand Auditorium

Taylor’s signature shape embodies the ultimate all-purpose acoustic.

Indian Rosewood

The tonewood superstar. Popular, traditional, and versatile, Bob Taylor puts Indian rosewood among the greatest tonewoods ever.

Sinker Redwood

Tight grain structure and cross-grain stiffness produce a bold and brilliant response with warm overtones. Think cedar on steroids.

Expression System® 2

The Expression System® 2 captures more of a guitar’s dynamic properties using a breakthrough behind-the-saddle design.

Beveled Cutaway

Our beveled cutaway design provides a more player-friendly feel for guitarists who utilize every inch of the fretboard. It features a compound design with a smoothened edge along the corner of the body between the end of the cutaway and the neck heel, providing a more comfortable feel for the fretting hand. 

V-Class Bracing

Our patented V-Class bracing is a revolutionary new pattern — a new sonic engine — that marks a major shift away from traditional steel-string bracing patterns.

Awesome music shop! Very clean, not crowded. Lots of guitars for everyone's musical taste. The staff is super nice, and very informative. I can't say enough good things about Picker's Alley! Thank you so much for serving Southwestern Ontario with such awesome service!!

Great music store. Messaged them about a sale item and they put the last one aside for me until I could get there to purchase.

Tim Clements

Tony is by far the best customer service rep around, He knows his stuff, and is always willing to go above and beyond, I only go to pickers alley, for all my musical needs!!

Ryan Mathews

Excellent service, in one word they know what they are doing just tell them your requirement and budget. Don't worry about price if you see it online it's the same price here in offline too. Best thing is the owner's humour and focus on your requirement more than the sales of the store.

Very very happy and satisfied and will be back for additional requirements.

What a great selection of guitars and amps. Staff is very knowledgeable and friendly. If they don't have what you need chances are they can source it for you. Prices are as competitive as big box music stores so there is no need to look elsewhere. I will continue to support local when I can.
