"Love my 214"
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
I have always wanted this guitar. OK, not always but ever since Taylor released it. I even had a roommate who had one. I did have two really good acoustics but unfortunately, one was destroyed in an act of vandalism about five years ago. Immediately, I knew I would replace it with a 214. It took me this long.First off, I bought it with the payment plan. It was so easy. It got here on time though FedEx was scaring me. Ever chase a FedEx truck down the street? Fun.The gigbag is extremely cheap but it's really all you need. I have grown to prefer gigbags over cases as they're just easier to haul around. Plus, I still have the case the destroyed guitar.Ratitng it:Overall it's great. It's easy to play and it sounds like a Taylor. It's smooth, it feels good, it's light, it's loud. I have not tried it plugged in yet. But the features look cool. I'm eager to try it at an open mic just to bust it in live.Quality, it's a Taylor. Cant' go wrong there. It's made in Mexico but I don't care.Manufacturer support: After you register, you get a free subscription to their magazine or something like that. Sound: Honestly, it has brand new Elixer strings on it and let's be honest....those strings make all guitars sound the same. I'm looking forward to when they break in a bit which takes longer.Ease of use: Yeah.Value: Oh yeah. I got this for less now than I would have a decade ago. It's right under $900. I could have paid a hundred more and got one of those Baby Taylors but seriously, great deal but what would I do with that?Wow read more factor: I wow myself that I own a Taylor now. I did consider getting the Martin that's around the same price level as they're great too, but I've played a million of these 214s in the past. I knew I was safe with it. I plan to have this guitar for years to come. I'm looking forward to breaking it in and having the sound grow with age.
