    Great guitar!

    I 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 almost 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.

    excellent craftmanship, excellent sound.

    The 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 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.

    Good acoustic electric

    Bought 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 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
