Your 214ce-K Koa Deluxe provides a knockout combination of beautiful looks, amazing resonating tone, and incomparable playability. Pick one up, and you'll see how Taylor's 200 series guitars have created a new standard in the world of acoustic-electric axes.
Taylor's 200 Series Acoustic-Electric GuitarsTaylor has raised the bar in playability and the ability to capture and project the warmth and resonance of choice tonewoods. The 200 series features acoustic-electrics built with Sitka spruce tops, and layered rosewood, koa, or sapele back and sides. They are as mesmerizing to look at as they are to play and hear. The 214ce-K is crafted in Taylor's most popular body shape -- the Grand Auditorium -- which delivers even and balanced tone from deep lows to crisp highs.
Amazing Expression System ElectronicsTaylor's impressive Expression System captures the warm and alluring resonance of your 214ce-K Koa Deluxe's body in all of its tonal contour, delivering a clean and articulate signal waiting to hit your amplifier. This all-magnet system utilizes a dynamic body sensor attached to the soundboard, a dynamic string sensor beneath the fretboard, and a discrete and noninvasive preamp system. This ingenious system is built hidden within the design of your 214ce-K Koa Deluxe's body and brings you all tone with no buzz, hum, or electrical noise.
Sitka Spruce and Hawaiian Koa BodyTo provide each note with warm resonation and lingering sustain, the 214ce-K Koa Deluxe boasts a Sitka spruce top and Hawaiian koa back and sides. Sitka spruce is a strong and resilient wood that ages well and holds up strongly to scratches and scuffs, and it brings a sharp crispiness to your playing. Hawaiian koa, a tropical wood, keeps your tones bright and warm, and tends to mellow over time. Both woods maintain their resonance and warmth throughout the years so you can be sure that you'll be playing this acoustic-electric for a long time.
A Supremely Playable Sapele NeckWrap your hands around this baby's comfortably sapele neck and you'll experience the incredible playability that Taylor's 200 series axes have to offer. A super-smooth ebony fingerboard is inviting to the touch, and each of this appendage's 20 frets harness a tight action that's tough to beat. The Venetian cutaway on your 214ce-K Koa Deluxe's body gives you easy access to those higher frets when you want to kick things up a notch or two during solos and crispy licks. Taylors are known for their playability, and the 214ce-K Koa Deluxe is certainly no exception!
