800 Series At The Music Zoo

The Music Zoo has many modes from Taylor Guitar’s flagship 800 Series, such as the highly successful 814ce Grand Auditorium and the booming 818e Grand Orchestra. The Music Zoo website or our New York showroom offers a comprehensive collection of 800 series acoustic guitars from Taylor!

The 800 Series guitars are based around the classic combination of a spruce top with rosewood back and sides. Grand Concert, Grand Auditorium, Grand Symphony, and Grand Orchestra body shapes are available. Every model is available acoustic or equipped with the ES2 electronics system by Taylor. Some limited edition 800 series Taylor guitars have been offered with cocobolo as well as Brazilian and Madagascar rosewood wood sets.

The elegant aesthetic of the 800 Series Taylor is brought together with maple binding, abalone rosette, the Element fretboard inlay, and a rosewood pickguard. The fretboard, bridge, and headstock overlay are made of responsibility sourced ebony. This series of instruments has been a mainstay of the Taylor line since the very beginning, and in fact the 855 model helped to certify Taylor as a top acoustic guitar manufacturer when Neil Young used one for his live album Rust Never Sleeps in 1979.
