Combine time-tested acoustic design and a natural-sounding pickup system, and you've got the Taylor 214ce Deluxe. Its Grand Auditorium body has the width and depth of a Dreadnought, but its tapered waist and graceful contours make it look like a smaller instrument and impart balance and presence to the big sound, making it a favorite of recording engineers at Music Experience. With its slender and fast neck, the 214ce Deluxe plays like a Taylor, which is to say, effortlessly. With the 214ce Deluxe, you'll feel well-equipped both on stage and in your studio.
Taylor's beloved Grand Auditorium body style, featured on the 214ce Deluxe, employs the width and depth of the Dreadnought; however, its waist is narrower, which gives Grand-Auditorium-bodied acoustic guitars a sleeker look and more treble zing. The body style also helps to sharpen the definition of each note. From fingerpicking to medium strumming, the Grand Auditorium is a great choice for nearly every playing style.
To give the 214ce Deluxe full tone and and clear projection, Taylor added a solid Sitka spruce top to its layered Copafera back and sides. The characteristically open sound of this spruce top really balances the tone, making it a wonderful guitar for any style of music you play.
Taylor's Expression System 2 is designed to faithfully reproduce your guitar's natural tone. This system utilizes three uniquely positioned and individually calibrated pickup sensors installed behind the saddle and through the bridge to capture top and string vibration like never before. Created in partnership with audio pioneer Mr. Rupert Neve, Taylor's electronics are seamlessly integrated into the design of the guitar from the ground up. Onboard tone controls provide added flavor, or set it flat for an uncolored, exceptionally clean amplified sound.
Guitarists looking for a versatile instrument that’s primed for the studio and the stage will love the blend of sonic performance and aesthetic appeal the 214ce-CF DLX offers. The Grand Auditorium body shape yields a full, balanced voice, anchored by a solid Sitka spruce top and complemented by deep-hued layered copafera back and sides. Our Expression System 2 electronics project a clear and detailed sound when played through a PA or amplifier, and the Italian acrylic Small Diamond inlays, white binding, and full-gloss finish make this a guitar worth showing off. It ships with our deluxe hardshell case.
The Taylor 214ce Deluxe is a great guitar for players of all styles!
