Taylor 214CEK Koa Grand Auditorium Natural

Sitka Spruce Top & Layered Koa Body


The Taylor 214ce features a solid sitka spruce top, which develops character throughout its life. Its solid top also ensures richly-superior sound, and will continue to open up and sound better with age and the more it's played. Sitka spruce produces a broad dynamic range with a crisp, articulate sound. In addition, the solid top also offers a versatile response to a wide variety of genres and playing styles. This makes the guitar perfect for composing and recording with. Furthermore, the top is accompanied by layered koa back and sides, which not only offer a stunning visual appeal, but offers durability with a superb sound. The 214ce's layered back and sides are also climate resistant, making the guitar ideal for traveling with and taking on tours. Together its solid top and layered koa back and sides offer a clear, balanced tone with a superb response.


Sapele Neck & Ebony Fingerboard


Constructed from sapele, the 214ce's neck produces a consistent and balanced sound. It also adds warmth with a little extra treble to the overall sound. In addition, thanks to Taylor's neck joint, the piece of sapele sits stable and secure. Taylor's neck joint also prevents the neck from having a weaker point, resulting in an extremely strong connection between the neck and body. The neck also has a satin finish, which offers a smooth playing experience with plenty of grip and ability to move around with ease. Furthermore, the neck is topped with an ebony fingerboard which adds superb sustain with a bright attack to the guitar's overall sound.


Grand Auditorium Cutaway


One of Taylor's most versatile shapes. A signature body type that offers an idyllic all-purpose guitar. The grand auditorium body produces a full low-end, a focused, present mid-range, and sparkles on the treble notes. Its unique and individual voice projects an impressive amount of balance across the tonal spectrum, producing a clear, well-defined tone. The guitar's overall presence also fits beautifully well into a live mix, perfect for composing, as well as stage and studio work. Furthermore, the 214ce's body size falls between bold, brash dreadnought shapes and grand concert sized guitars, resulting in a comfortable sizing for both male and female players. Lastly, its Venetian cutaway profile also provides added comfort whilst offering easy access to upper frets and more challenging chords. Its Venetian cutaway also allows you to perform more technical skills in more challenging positions with incredible amounts of ease.


Expression System 2


This special design features an innovative behind-the-saddle construction, which picks-up the Taylor's natural dynamic properties and projects them beautifully. The Expression System 2 features three pickup sensors, the location of these sensors enable more acoustic dynamics to be captured. This results in an exceptional amplified tone and a superior response to each nuance of your individual style. The Expression System 2 combined with Taylor's 'professional audio' preamp allows the player to plug-in to an amp, PA system, or directly into recording software. Faithfully capturing and projecting the 214ce's stunning, and natural tonal properties, the ES2 electronics offer a break-through design that needs to be heard. Furthermore, you can accurately shape your amplified tone via three soft-touch rotary controls - perfect for live, studio, and rehearsal settings. You're also able to adjust the bass, treble, and volume, perfect for experimenting with your amplified tone to find a sound that suits your individual taste in tone. These discreet controls are also easy to use and by rotating the controls back and forth, you will feel a small bump that indicates the middle position of the control, meaning the control is turned off.


Upgraded Internal Bracing


For added strength, the 214ce is equipped with a forward shifted bracing pattern. This upgraded pattern allows the tonewoods to vibrate naturally, offering incredible depth and complexity. The 'x' in the bracing pattern is moved closer to the soundhole, enabling more of the guitar top to vibrate freely. Forward shifted bracing provides the 214ce with maximum tonal quality and projection, enhancing the tone, and offering added resonance and sustain.
