The Taylor 214ce acoustic-electric guitar makes it easy to get great Taylor tone onstage and off. The 214ce combines a solid Sitka spruce top and layered koa back and sides for excellent acoustic projection, while the single cutaway design and Grand Auditorium body style make it easy to play even at the highest frets. This guitar includes Taylor's ES-2 amplification system, which combines an innovative pickup/sensor design with a powerful preamp for a natural (and controllable) plugged-in tone.
With the ES-2 amplification system, this affordably-priced acoustic can now be plugged in to further enhance the Taylor playing experience. The ES-2 utilizes a proprietary behind-the-saddle pickup and a Taylor-devised active preamp. The result is a high-fidelity, low-impedance signal for clear, acoustic amplified tone.
Value is just one of the reasons why Sweetwater guitarists love the Taylor 200 series. The 214ce is a modestly priced guitar with tonal qualities and resonance approaching that of a premium acoustic. Layered koa adds depth to the sparkle of a Sitka top, filling in a full range of tonal possibilities.
Taylor's Grand Auditorium combines the width and depth of a Dreadnought but with a narrower waist. Its sleek design yields a strong treble zing across the tonal spectrum and sharpens the definition of individual notes. The Grand Auditorium is a strong fingerpicking guitar that also adapts well to medium strumming.
