The TAYLOR 214CE is optimized for live performance with cutaway allowing easy upper fret access and high quality Taylor ES-T electronics including EQ and phase switch for precise control over your live sound. The grand auditorium body isn't as large as a dreadnought and has a solid satin Sitka Gloss top, so you get a bright and clear sound that sings out with a warm but not overstated bass. Comes with a Taylor hard bag

Brilliant Design

Taylor are known the world over for their ability to make high end acoustic guitar and the knowledge that goes into this and has bled down into the great value 200 series. Using Taylors signature Grand Auditorium design you manage to get a beautifully balanced sound that can easily cut through any mix. This makes the 214ce the perfect acoustic for those with so set style or sound and just need something that sounds great every night.

Wood Choices

To make sure you get the most out of the many hours of research and development that went into designing this guitar Taylor have made sure the woods are top notch. Made with rosewood laminate back and sides with a solid sitka spruce top this guitar sounds huge! It resonates and projects wonderfully with a classic folk acoustic tone that plenty of you will love.

    Quality sounding and looking guitar, sounds huge

    Anonymous review via Feefo | Purchase date: 24 November 2014

    Really helpful staff, great advice, practice room incredibly helpful, ended up spending much more than I intended but totally worth it. I live in London but I'd rather bypass Denmark Street and make the trip to Guildford.

    my boyfriend absolutely adores this guitar. i can't comment but he thinks it's the best thing ever.

    I wanted a steel string accoustic that has a great sound without breaking the bank. The choice of options in stock was varied and thanks to the ever useful staff I settled on the Taylor with great looks and rich sound naturally or via the amp.

    I bought this for my son, who had played a reasonably good acoustic off and on for years. He hasn't put this Taylor down since he got it. I've owned Taylors for some years and am delighted with these guitars.

    Absolutely brilliant guitar! Neck feels beautiful and the sound is rich and full. Couldn't dig it anymore!

    Amazing guitar and well worth the money. Sound-wise, it's bright, clear, lively and loud, with enough bass. It's ridiculously easy to play, the shape is perfect for me and the fretboard feels quick and comfortable. With regards to looks, it's classy, understated and relatively unfussy. Some might interpret the understated look as plain, but with guitars in this league you need to pay double or triple to get fancy inlays.

    I originally bought the 210e but within 48 hours realised that the dreadnought shape wasn't right for me and felt uncomfortable. Exchanged no problem. This is my first really nice guitar so it had to be as close to perfect for my budget as I could get. I absolutely love it and prefer it over the Martin's at this level. Overall, very happy indeed.

    I was very unsure about this acoustic because of the back and sides. They are made of a laminate and it does really affect the sound. My other guitar is a brunswick and it is also a laminate back and sides but cost far less. I chose the taylor because i thought that with a taylor i'd pick it up and play more but it just sat in the corner once i heard that it wasn't much different to my brunswick. I ended up selling it and buying a takamine EF341 instead. I seriously do not recommend this guitar as it seems that you are paying for a name rather than quality.

    I spent the best part of a (gap) year guitar hunting and played and tried what seemed like an infinite number of guitars but nothing felt quite right...until I played the Taylor 214ce. For my price range of less than £1000 I struggled to find anything that played as easily or with such a rich full sound. For a while I was worried about buying a guitar with laminate back and sides but in the end I went for it because quite frankly it sounded heaps better than full wood guitars in the same price range.

    Would definitely recommend!
