Product Description

The Taylor 200 Series redefines what a mid-priced guitar can be. A glossy, solid Sitka spruce top meets gorgeous Indian rosewood laminate back and sides, delivering an experience of sight, sound and touch that's unmistakably Taylor. Plug in with the optional Taylor electronics and take your performance to the stage with confidence.

Features
In the 200 Series, Indian rosewood adds depth to the sparkle of a Sitka top, filling in a full range of tonal possibilities.

Grand Auditorium -- 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 finger-picking guitar that also adapts well to medium strumming.

Varnish -- A durable varnish finish offers protection, good looks, and a smooth feel to the touch. Available in natural finish.

zZounds is an authorized dealer of Taylor Guitars products.

Customer Reviews
4.5 out of 5 (24 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
This review has been selected by our experts as particularly helpful. "A steal for $1000"
Sound: The guitar has a treble sound, and sounds nice on figerpicking and open chords. Feature: The sapele in the sides and back was a good choice for the guitar. It gives it a ringing high tone. Very nice. Quality: The make of the product seems fine. It is assembled in the Taylor factory in California, so it can be trusted. I wouldn't recommend the guitar for touring/traveling because of the delicacy of it. The body is not glossed at all, which makes it a bit more "dentable". Value: This guitar is comparable to some of the expensive 600 series Taylors. This is great, considering the guitar is only retailed at around $1000. Manufacturer Support: The first thing Taylor does when you get the guitar is registers you for support in their factory. I have not yet had to deal with them becuase there has been no problems, but knowing I have the support is nice. The Wow Factor: It feels great to use, and makes you want to play more and more. Overall: The guitar is a MUST if you're buying a mid-priced guitar. The only other guitar I would consider is some of the Blueridges, and just go for what you like!

"Great guitar for the money"
Sound: The sound is incredible. I have played several other models in this under 1000 category and couldn't find another one even close to the beautiful sound of the instrument. Don't take my word for it go play one for yourself and see what I mean. Feature: solid wood...no frills...but beautiful in it's simplicity. comes with a hard shell case that fits snug just like it should. Quality: Quality made instrument. Like ALL solid wood guitars you need to take some extra care with cleaning, humidity etc. Something to think about if you just want to leave it lying around or if you live in an extreme climate. Value: you will be hard pressed to find another guitar with this kind of sound in this price range. Manufacturer Support: I have personally never had any return etc. with them but my local dealer who sells them as well as other top brands can't say enough good things about them. The Wow Factor: I love this guitar and you will too. Overall: I went through the pain staking task of trying to find a good sounding, quality built all wood guitar under $1000.00 for months until I picked up this 210 and it was as if it were meant for me. If your looking for the bling factor don't buy it. But if your looking for a great sounding well built solid wood guitar under 1k you can't go wrong with this one. Go play it and see for your self!

1. zZounds offers the industry‘s most musician-friendly payment plans

zZounds offers a variety of Play as You Pay installment plans that allow you to get the gear you want today. While our competitors might offer house credit cards that require you to fill out an application and pass a credit check, our payment plans are easy to get, simple to use, and, best of all, accrue zero interest. Unlike those house credit cards that can leave you vulnerable to exorbitant interest charges once the promotional period ends, we never have and never will charge interest when you take advantage of one of the zZounds Play as You Pay plans.
