From Our Research Team:
Taylor Tone, Fantastic Value!With a laminate rosewood body, a solid Sitka spruce top, and a beautiful ebony fretboard, the 214ce makes the Taylor experience more accessible than ever. Scalloped bracing delivers the Taylor steel-string tone, and black fiber binding, dot inlays, and wood fiber rosette contribute to a smart appearance.
Taylor ES Blue
With the ES Blue amplification system, this affordably-priced Dreadnought can now be plugged-in to further enhance the Taylor playing experience. Derived from the Taylor Expression System, the ES Blue utilizes a proprietary Dynamic String Sensor and a Taylor-devised active preamp. The result is a high-fidelity, low-impedance signal for clear, acoustic amplified tone.
Taylor 214ce Wood
A modestly priced guitar with tonal qualities and resonance approaching that of a premium acoustic guitar - an incredible value. In the 200 Series, laminate rosewood adds depth to the sparkle of a solid Sitka top, filling in a full range of tonal possibilities.
Taylor 214ce Body Style: Grand Auditorium A/E Cutaway
Taylor's Grand Auditorium combines the width and depth of a Dreadnought with a narrower waist. Its sleek design yields a strong treble zing across the tonal spectrum and sharpens the definition of individual notes. The Grand Auditorium is a strong fingerpicking guitar that also adapts well to medium strumming.
Taylor 214ce Finish: Varnish
A durable varnish finish offers protection, good looks, and a smooth feel to the touch. Available in natural finish.

excellent craftmanship, excellent sound.
by from New York CityThe guitar itself sounds beautiful. It's very bright, which is consistent with the research I found before purchasing the guitar. I was able to play one before buying it and couldn't believe how easy ... read more [+]it was to play. I actually sound like a better guitarist with this guitar. The neck is perfectly smooth, and the playability lives up to the taylor brand.

Because the guitar has such a bright sound, the high end is accentuated when it's plugged in and you're using the pickups, so I run it through an EQ pedal for live performances to make it less harsh. That really fixes everything for me.
I've recorded with it quite a bit already through a mic, not direct-in, and it sounds beautiful. ZERO regrets on this purchase. close [-]
Good acoustic electric
by Mick Luehrman from Kansas City, MissouriBought this model a year ago. Plays like a dream. Action very fast. Precision of the neck allows for action to be set low and not buzz. Ebony fingerboard is luscious--wonderfully silky smooth. It... read more [+] plays more like my electric than other acoustic guitars I have (Martin, Takamine, Alvarez). Great sounding finger style instrument. Not as good for "strumming" with a pick. Can be a bit harsh when plugged in (Fender Acoustasonic). I often end up rolling off almost all of the treble to reduce the harshness when strumming with a pick. I use a 31 band graphic eq and that helps a lot also. I do kind of wish I had stepped up to a higher end model to get the full Taylor Expression system. Thinking it might be less treble-y. On the other hand, I think this treble characteristic is probably part of what makes it sound so good as a finger style guitar. My first Taylor and I must say the craftsmanship on my 214ce is excellent. All in all, I'm quite pleased with the instrument close [-]
