How much does the Taylor 814Ce Cost?
There are three different versions of the Taylor 814ce and, at the time of publishing this page, all three retailed at $3,999.00. Check the pricing tools below - which include all three versions - to confirm the current Taylor 814ce price.
The Taylor 814ce is a high-end acoustic guitar with all solid tonewood (Spruce and Mahogany), coming in three different versions:
- Natural (right-handed) 814ce
- Nylon string version (814ce-N)
- 814ce left-handed version
As we noted above, all three guitars retail at the same price. For high-end Taylor acoustics this is a fairly consistent price range (between $3000 and $4000). Within the main Taylor lineup, the 814 is at the top of the food chain. For perspective, we're even big fans of the 114ce, which is less than $1000 in most markets.

Our price guides are not the same as reviews or roundups because we are not making a recommendation, but instead providing a resource for those already interested in the Taylor 814ce. That said, we wouldn't make a price guide if it wasn't for a worthwhile guitar. Also note that we use partner links to Sweetwater and other vendors to support our work. If you want to help us out - at no extra cost to yourself - consider buying through these links. Thank you.
Taylor 814ce Sweetwater Price
For years now Sweetwater has been a solid barometer of market value for new guitar gear, as they don't dabble very much at all in the used market. Every once in awhile you'll see open box items and discounts, but they tend to be par for the course when it comes to pricing. This price updates in real time, so you're getting the most current retail value possible.
Pricing from Other Vendors
Amazon carries a lot of Taylor guitars, including all three versions of the 814ce. You can find a few on eBay, but we'll cover Reverb options below, which we would argue is a superior used market for music gear. Note that, since we don't have partnerships with Guitar Center or Musician's Friend, we don't have access to their databases to display pricing. They're worth checking out as well for further comparison.
Price Alert Sign Up (based on Sweetwater retail)
Catching a price drop for a high-end guitar like the Taylor 814 is tough. It doesn't happen often, and it's usually not a ton of money off the regular price. As the price of a product gets higher, the percentage discount you should target gets smaller. You can set the alert for whatever you want, but we'd recommend maybe five to 10 percent.

Reverb Used Pricing Summary
We'd argue Reverb is the absolute best used market available for music gear, and guitar gear in particular. While we can't display pricing in the above tables because of how their database is set up, we can show current Taylor 814ce pricing below as well as the number of used options available.
Note that the price is for the lowest-cost option from the available inventory, and it goes up from there.

Buying used can definitely get you a significant discount on a guitar like the 814ce. People who sell these generally just want to unload them, usually because they don't have time to play or they're sort of moving on from the guitar. And that's kind of sad, but you can definitely benefit and save money if you buy a guitar from someone in that situation.
Reverb is the best place to look around for that kind of deal. It's not uncommon to see discounts of $1000 or more on the 814ce.
That said, if you're looking at this guitar as a kind of investment - perhaps you're a performer or professional musician - buying new with support from a company and getting an active warranty can definitely have its perks.
Either way, this page can help you get the best deal possible.
