About the Taylor 214ce

The Taylor 214ce is one of Taylor's most popular guitars. This Grand Auditorium electro acoustic is made with a solid piece of Sitka Spruce for the soundboard and layered Koa for the body. This is an attractive looking and great sounding combination, especially with the addition of an Ebony fingerboard and a venetian cutaway on the body's treble bout. The Taylor 214ce features Taylor's high quality Expression System 2 pickup for professional level 'plugged-in' tone.

Frequently Asked Questions about Taylor 214ce Guitars

Question: What type of body shape is the Taylor 214ce?
The 214ce, like all Taylor guitars with a '14' designation in the name, is a Grand Auditorium shape. This popular design is slightly smaller than a dreadnought and is equally effective at strummed and picked techniques.
Question: What is the difference between a Taylor 214ce and a 214ce DLX?
The Taylor 214ce DLX is the same as the 214ce except for these additional upgrades: the back and sides are made from layered Rosewood instead of layered Koa; the rosette and fingerboard inlays are more ornate; the guitar has a full Gloss finish and a hardshell case is included instead of a gig bag.
Question: Where is the Taylor 214ce made?
Taylor make their 214ce guitars in Tecate, Mexico. All 100 & 200 series guitars are made here along with the Baby and GS Mini ranges.
Question: What tonal properties does Koa have?
Koa, a rare tonewood found only on the tropical islands of Hawaii, has both a distinctive look and sound. Visually, Koa can be dramatic with wide and colourful figuring. Sonically, Koa sits somewhere between Mahogany with a direct, crisp sound that has a strong mid-range character. Koa is a versatile and useful wood that works well whether it's used for a guitar's top or its body.
