Description

Details

The team of luthiers at Taylor never fail to impress with their extensive range of superb acoustic guitars, and the 214ce DLX in Black has certainly been skilfully and expertly crafted. Composed using a range of high quality, hard-wearing materials, and equipped with advanced onboard electronics, it's hard not to be impressed by it.

GRAND AUDITORIUM BODY

The 214ce DLX is built to Taylor's most popular, versatile Grand Auditorium shape with added Venetian cutaway. This is a true Taylor original body shape, first designed in 1994 as a middle-ground between a Dreadnought and Grand Concert style body. The addition of the Venetian cutaway provides you with complete access to the upper frets, allowing the player to vary their acoustic registers.

Sitka spruce is commonly the tonewood of choice in acoustic soundboards, and this remains the case with the 214ce DLX, thanks to its articulate ability to project a full-bodied, crystal-clear acoustic voice. The forward shifted bracing pattern further stabilises the body top. Layered sapele not only looks good in the back and sides but also ensures the body has a long-lasting construction. The body is given a delicate yet resilient gloss finish to prevent tackiness or stickiness from occurring, whilst adding overall protection.

NECK

Sapele is also used in the neck and heel, and it is firmly fitted to the body via a scarf neck joint. The neck has a satin-treated finish which adds to its slender feel. Topping the neck is a 20-fret smooth ebony fingerboard decorated with small diamond inlays as your guide.

EXPRESSION 2 ELECTRONICS

The 214ce DLX is enhanced by the new Expression 2 onboard electronics, which feature an advanced behind-the-saddle pickup and custom-designed "professional-audio"-grade preamp. Rather than using the "under-the-saddle" pickup design, the behind-the-saddle pickup ensures that each note and chord that is played is pickup and perfectly translated. It also means that the natural warmth produced by the tonewoods is not compromised, and its acoustic voice can ring out with beautiful, clear intonation.

The main change in the Expression system is the Gain feature, allowing for hotter tones, but the Volume and Tone controls remain the same. This is a welcome improvement, particularly for live musicians.

The 214ce DLX in Black is a stunning electro acoustic model that appeals to a wide-ranging audience, with that superb Venetian cutaway Grand Auditorium body and finished with a decorative three ring pearloid rosette and white binding. Taylor also include a standard hardshell case in brown to protect the guitar out on the road.
