From Our Research Team:
A Lefty Taylor A/E That's Built for the Stage!The Taylor 214ce Left-Handed acoustic-electric guitar makes it easy to get great Taylor tone both onstage and off. The 214ce Left-Handed combines a solid Sitka spruce top and rosewood back and sides material for excellent acoustic projection, while the single cutaway design and Grand Auditorium body style make it easy to play - even to the highest frets! This guitar includes Taylor's ES Blue amplification system, which combines innovative pickup/sensor designs with a powerful preamp for very natural (and controllable) plugged-in tone from the 214ce Left-Handed.
Taylor 214ce Left-Handed Acoustic-electric Guitar at a Glance:
Sounds great plugged in, too
With the ES Blue amplification system, this affordably-priced acoustic 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.
Quality Taylor construction
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 Sitka top, filling in a full range of tonal possibilities.
Grand Auditorium body style with 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.

by Jack Moncayo from mansfield, OH USAI love this guitar! I ordered it and my sales rep called and said it was back ordered, but somehow it came to my house within 3 days! When i first started playing it I was blown away. It has a great a... read more [+]lmost twangy tone if you play hard enough. This is my first performance level acoustic guitar and I've already used it for a bar gig and it was outstanding. I am very satisfied with this guitar and do not see myself upgrading to a more expensive acoustic anytime soon. Taylor really delivers! The only thing is that the craftsmanship isn't perfect as there are some quality issues especially around where the neck connects to the body, and the electronics are on the bright side. However, you can easily dial off the highs. close [-]

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 [-]
