Quality build, premiere woods, and electronics make this a 6-string of style and strength.
The Taylor 214ce Rosewood/Spruce Grand Auditorium Acoustic-Electric Guitar features a desirable gloss finish that you'll take a shine to. The Grand Auditorium was the first guitar shape designed from scratch by Bob Taylor. It was unveiled to commemorate the company's 20th Anniversary in 1994, and since then it has more than lived up to its promise. Although the Taylor GA acoustic-electric guitar has the width and depth of a dreadnought, its narrower waist gives it the appearance of a smaller instrument, adds treble "zing" across the guitar's tonal spectrum, sharpens the definition of individual notes, and also enables it to rest comfortably in the lap. Because Taylor removes mass from the width of the GA's braces, the guitar top moves faster, resulting in a snappy, bell-like tone. The Taylor GA acoustic-electric guitar is designed to be a strong fingerpicking guitar that also can handle medium strumming, and is exceptionally versatile. The cutaway feature on the Taylor guitar's body makes reaching the upper-register frets a snap, giving you comfortable access up and down the ebony fret board.
The Taylor 214ce guitar features a solid Sitka spruce top, a top-quality wood, known for its balanced tone and clarity. The Indian rosewood (maple on black model) back and sides, another premiere wood, produces rich, booming sound, with the perfect element of projection. The 25-1/2" scale, 1-11/16" nut width, and 15" radius adds comfort for intricate movements up and down the ebony fretboard.
The NT neck joint fits into a specially cut pocket in the body of the Taylor guitar. The frets are supported equally by the neck, creating a more stable playing surface, one that is continually straight, from the bottom to the top of the neck. The mahogany neck on the 214ce is strong and provides added presence and clarity in the tone, and the ebony bridge and fretboard bring out lasting sustain.
At the heart of Taylor's 214ce guitar lies an integrated electronics system, letting you dial in and amplify the guitar quickly and effortlessly. The electronics include bass, treble, and volume controls, for an individualized plugged-in experience. Taylor tuners keep the Grand Auditorium guitar in precise tuning and chrome hardware add an extra sleek look to this already stunning offering from Taylor. You won't believe the sound.
Includes gig bag.

Comments about Taylor 214ce Rosewood/Spruce Grand Auditorium Acoustic-Electric Guitar:
This is the best guitar in this price range by far. I have the natural and it is beautiful. The set up was just right for me. I have never seen a guitar that stays in tune as well as this one. Sounds great when not plugged in and then while plugged in is awesome. I like the easy to use controls. I know you could spend a lot more money but not get a better guitar. Comes with a really nice padded bag. The size of the body is thin and very light, but has a great tone. This is a great choice if you are looking for a name brand high quality instrument.
