Taylor 814ce LTD '50th Anniversary' Builders Edition 'Redwood / Indian Rosewood' Acoustic Electric Guitar

Available at Acoustic Centre Melbourne

The 50th Anniversary Builder’s Edition 814ce LTD by Taylor commemorates half a century of excellence with a refined and exclusive iteration of their flagship guitar. Featuring Indian rosewood back and sides paired with a sinker redwood top, this instrument delivers a rich blend of tones—rosewood's deep lows, sparkling highs, and lush overtones, enhanced by the redwood's warm, cedar-like resonance and powerful projection, all optimized by Taylor’s revolutionary V-Class bracing.

Crafted for ultimate playing comfort, this limited-edition model inherits the luxurious features of Taylor's Builder's Edition line. It includes a beveled armrest, beveled cutaway, chamfered edges, and a Curve Wing bridge, ensuring seamless playability across the fretboard.

Unique to the 50th Anniversary edition are special appointments that underscore its exclusivity: a gold-hued mother-of-pearl peghead logo and matching Element fretboard inlays, maple purfling around the fretboard and peghead, and a striking green abalone rosette. Premium Gotoh 510 tuners and ebony bridge pins with gold acrylic dots add further elegance and functionality to the instrument.

Visually stunning, the guitar features a Kona edgeburst finish that accentuates its contours, complemented by a full-body gloss for durability and a lustrous sheen. Each guitar bears a commemorative 50th Anniversary label, marking it as a special tribute to Taylor's enduring legacy of craftsmanship and innovation.

Ideal for both discerning collectors and performing musicians seeking superior tone and unparalleled playability, the 50th Anniversary Builder’s Edition 814ce LTD embodies Taylor's commitment to pushing the boundaries of acoustic guitar design and delivering instruments of exceptional quality and beauty.

We endeavour to show the actual instrument in stock whenever possible, but the guitar in stock may differ slightly from the one shown on our website. Materials used can look different from guitar to guitar, including timber grain and colour, parts colours and finishing. If an instrument is a one-of-a-kind or preowned guitar, the picture will always be of the actual guitar in stock, but production models may have slight variations to the picture shown.

If you're after a particular look, feel free to email us at or send us a message through our chat service to request photos of the actual guitar in stock. We are more than happy to send through pictures of all in-stock guitars, to make your choice easier.

Please note that returns will not be accepted for variations in timber grain /  colouring, finish variations and parts colouring, unless there is a fault with the instrument. If you have any questions at all regarding an instrument's appearance, just drop us a line - we're always happy to send photos, and if we have more than one instrument in stock you'll be able to choose the exact guitar that you receive!
