Taylor 214ce Grand Auditorium - Natural
In Stock!

Taylor Tone, Fantastic Value!

With a layered 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-2 Electronics

With the ES-2 amplification system, this affordably-priced Dreadnought can be plugged-in to further enhance the Taylor playing experience. The ES-2 utilizes 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, layered 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.

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.

All around great

Easy to play, action was excellent, sound is amassing, great entry level to intermediate player guitar,
Music background: Playing as hobby for 15 years

Great Sound

I wan very impressed. I have had a Taylor 414 for years and this sounds just as good.

Best in class

In my opinion, the best acoustic guitar for under $1,000. I tried similar guitars from Guild, Martin, and Yamaha and I always came back to the Taylor. The string to string balance of the Taylor is what sets it apart from the competition. Highly recommended. Ordered it from Sweetwater. Unlike other "big" internet music retailers, they do a full 55 point inspection before it goes out the door so you know your getting a quality product when it arrives.

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!
