Description

Details

The 200 Series’ electro-acoustic cutaway Grand Auditorium model, the Taylor 214ce is outfitted with a gloss-finished solid Sitka spruce top and layered koa back and sides, along with Taylor’s ES-T under-saddle transducer pickup system for trouble-free amplification. This Grand Auditorium takes the huge sound of a Dreadnought and packs it into dimensions that are a little larger than a Grand Concert. This creates an instrument with a clear, balanced tone, which responds well to picking and strumming but is small enough for finger-style play. You really can have it all.

Making up the top of the guitar is a classic acoustic guitar tonewood, solid Sitka spruce. Made popular with good reason, spruce is noted for its clarity, brightness, and expansive dynamic range, along with being a wood that ages particularly well, gaining subtle but distinctive characteristics the more it is played.

Complementing the body’s soft Venetian cutaway is a sapele neck, with a width of 1-11/16". Atop this lies a smooth ebony fingerboard with 20 frets and 6mm dot inlays.

Taylor ES-T electronics

It’s not often that a preamp complements the design of a guitar, often being more of a necessary evil. This is not the case with the Taylor-designed ES-T under-saddle transducer pickup system. Along with the Phase switch located on the preamp board inside the soundhole, for feedback control, the preamp consists of three, unobtrusive rotary knobs controlling the custom-voiced EQ (comprised of bass and treble) and a volume, with the only other addition being a low-battery LED indicator.

Posted on 18/08/2015 by Having had mine now for 12 months, am still a fan! played most days and still sounds bright and clear. A pleasure to play. For the money, is worth a 5.
Posted on 23/11/2014 by Tried this in the Reading store. Excellent service and they leave you to it. Tried about 6 Martins and Taylors, and this was easily the nicest. Warm mids and basses. Chiming trebles. All smooth sounding. Plays really easily. Strings glide over the frets on vibratos. Frictionless. Nice action. Good for slamming away on too. Plugged in its really nice. I don't think I could hear a single unwanted noise. And you can get some cool sounds out of the controls too.
