Fantastic Value in a Rosewood Taylor!
The Taylor 214ce acoustic-electric guitar is a celebration of innovation. Bob Taylor’s signature Grand Auditorium body shape has the width and depth of a dreadnought, but its tapered waist and graceful contours make it look like a smaller instrument and impart balance and presence to the big sound, making it a favorite of recording engineers. With its slender, fast neck, the 214ce plays like a Taylor — which is to say, effortlessly. With its gorgeous rosewood back and sides, solid Sitka spruce top, and built-in ES2 electronics, the Taylor 214ce is your ticket to great things.
Grand Auditorium body style for amazing comfort, tone, and visuals
Taylor’s beloved Grand Auditorium body style, featured on the 214ce, employs the width and depth of a dreadnought; however, its waist is narrower, which gives Grand Auditorium–bodied acoustic guitars a sleeker look with more treble zing. The body style also helps to sharpen the definition of each note. From fingerpicking to medium strumming, the Grand Auditorium is a great choice for nearly every playing style.
Sitka and rosewood: a classic tonewood combination
As a top tonewood, Sitka spruce offers a combination of strength and elasticity that delivers a broad dynamic range with crisp articulation that’s ideal for a wide range of playing styles, from delicate fingerpicking to aggressive flatpicked strumming. Indian rosewood, used for this guitar’s sides and back, serves up an extended frequency range and rich, musical tonality that have elevated it to premium status among tonewoods. Its potent low end can serve up a throaty growl, while sparkling treble notes ring out with bell-like clarity. Slightly scooped in the midrange (as compared with mahogany), rosewood acoustic guitars are perfect for solo performance, vocal accompaniment, and tracking in sparser arrangements.
Built-in ES2 electronics system for great onstage tone
You’ll enjoy performing with the 214ce, not only because of its great looks but also because it packs the Taylor ES2 electronics system, which delivers uncolored, exceptionally clean amplified sound and flexible tone shaping. Whether you’re playing it acoustically or plugged in, the Taylor 214ce sounds amazing.
