Taylor 214ce Grand Auditorium - Natural
In Stock!

An Affordable Taylor That's Built for the Stage

The Taylor 214ce acoustic-electric guitar makes it easy to get great Taylor tone onstage and off. The 214ce combines a solid Sitka spruce top and layered koa back and sides for excellent acoustic projection, while the single cutaway design and Grand Auditorium body style make it easy to play even at the highest frets. This guitar includes Taylor's ES-2 amplification system, which combines an innovative pickup/sensor design with a powerful preamp for a natural (and controllable) plugged-in tone.

Sounds great plugged in

With the ES-2 amplification system, this affordably-priced acoustic can now be plugged in to further enhance the Taylor playing experience. The ES-2 utilizes a proprietary behind-the-saddle pickup and a Taylor-devised active preamp. The result is a high-fidelity, low-impedance signal for clear, acoustic amplified tone.

Quality Taylor construction

Value is just one of the reasons why Sweetwater guitarists love the Taylor 200 series. The 214ce is a modestly priced guitar with tonal qualities and resonance approaching that of a premium acoustic. Layered koa 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 but 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.

  • 6-string Grand Auditorium Cutaway
  • Layered koa back and sides
  • Clear-sounding solid Sitka spruce top

Home run...

Taylor has done it again! I have owned 4 Taylors prior to this one, GS6, 310, 410 and 510. I've wanted to try the x14 series for quite some time and the Mexican built Taylors make this possible without spending a ton of money. Regardless of the obvious construction differences I'm very impressed with the tone and playability. The electronics issue (harsh hi's) is easily corrected with some mixing board tweeking and turning the treble down on the guitar. As for Sweetwater....I wouldn't buy anything without considering them first. Great service, fast shipping, great communication and a free two year warranty....WOW. Thanks Taylor and Sweetwater.

Never thought it could sound this good

I just got me 214ce and I am blown away by the sound this guitar puts out. You can hear every note cut through on every chord you play. I had the 114ce for a while but this guitar is much bettter. It feels more solid and has a more full sound than the 114ce. This is a great way to get the taylor you've always wanted but not spend your whole paycheck. I've had three guitars delivered to me from Sweetwater and none of them had any issues. They really take care of you.

Love this guitar.

I did a lot of research before I bought this guitar. The local stores only had demo's. Who wants a guitar that 300 people have played. I found Sweetwater on line. The website is very user friendly. That is huge for me. I'm just a rookie, but I can tell this Taylor guitar is of great quality. I like how they actually list the serial numbers and pictures on the site and you can select the guitar you want. The buying experience went flawless. Ben helped me and answered all my questions. He was great. It's easy to see that Sweetwater puts their customer service as a top priority.

love this guitar

Right from the very first strum I was impressed with crispness and clarity of the sound from this guitar. I also own a Martin Custom, but the Taylor is in class of it"s own. An absolutely great guitar!
