214ce: Our Most Popular Taylor Acoustic-Electric Guitar!

The Taylor 214ce Grand Auditorium delivers everything modern guitarists love about Taylor guitars. Crafted with Taylor's most popular Grand Auditorium body shape, this acoustic-electric offers easy playability, captivating looks, and a heaping portion of signature Taylor sound. With a 214ce in hand, it's easy to understand why players of every style and skill level continue to embrace Taylor Grand Auditoriums as their go-to instruments.

The Unmistakable Tone of a Taylor

Perhaps more than any other modern guitar, Taylor acoustics -- and Grand Auditoriums in particular -- carry a one-of-a-kind tone defined by bright, singing highs and rich, robust lows. The 214ce's Sitka spruce top, layered rosewood back and sides, and forward-shifted bracing pattern accentuate these exact tonal qualities. Strummed or plucked, this guitar sings with excellent clarity and balance -- and, like all Grand Auditoriums, mixes especially well with singing voices.

Exceptional Playability

The 214ce is the sort of guitar that's just impossible to put down. With a thinner waist than a typical dreadnought, the Grand Auditorium design is easy to hold and easy to play. A smooth ebony fingerboard caps the ergonomic neck, and a deep Venetian cutaway enhances access past the neck joint. Every inch of this guitar invites players of any style to strum or pick the hours away, with vibrant tones and engrossing character.

Onboard ES2 Electronics

Run a 214ce through any amplifier or PA and the onboard Taylor Expression System 2 pickup/preamp system does the rest. Rather than an under-saddle transducer, the ES2 uses Taylor Guitars' proprietary behind-the-saddle pickup, with three individually calibrated pickup sensors, placed to capture the full range of the instrument -- rich, organic tones with clarity and depth, individually capturing the ringing tones of each string. Taylor's custom-designed preamp includes Taylor-designed treble and bass EQ knobs and a volume knob. From coffeehouses to arenas and everywhere in between, the 214ce features the electronics you need to immerse your audience in captivating Taylor acoustic timbres.

Features:

- Popular Taylor Grand Auditorium body shape
- Sitka spruce top with layered rosewood back and sides for excellent tonal balance
- On-board Taylor ES2 electronics with 2-band EQ and volume knobs
- Forward-shifted bracing pattern for tight focus and projection
- Smooth ebony fingerboard
- Comfortable Venetian cutaway
- Included Taylor hardshell gig bag

"Incredible acoustic-electric guitar. Best value in industry!"
Overall: My wife bought this for me as an anniversary gift. I had looked at and played Taylor guitars at a local dealer for a long time. Too me they are just beautifully built. The sound is as good as more expensive Martins ,Gibsons and more expensive Taylors. That is what impresses me so much about the 214ce is the value. A thousand bucks is a fair amount of money but as we know many guitars can cost 3 to 5 times as much and more. This guitar has great sound with tuners that keep in tune. Very durable and compared to inexpensive guitars,feels more substantial.
Style of Music: I have just started taking lessons online with Guitar Trick. It has been very much well worth the 20 bucks a month . Teaches us
