Taylor Guitars, founded by Bob Taylor and Kurt Listug in 1974, has long been the vanguard of modern acoustic guitar design. The 214ce is a shining example of Taylor's commitment to creating affordable, incredible acoustic instruments and displays the brand's rich history, marrying traditional craftsmanship with cutting-edge technology.
This 214ce's body showcases a Sitka spruce top, the quintessential tonewood for projecting articulate sound with a broad dynamic range. The layered rosewood back and sides not only present a beautiful aesthetic, but also contribute to a balanced tonal profile. The Grand Auditorium body shape, an iconic Taylor innovation, strikes the perfect balance between comfort and projection, making it a versatile guitar.
With a nod to Taylor's philosophy of substance over excess, the 214ce forgoes flashy ornamentation for refined simplicity. The satin finish on the spruce top is simple, emphasizing the guitar's essence rather than unnecessary frills. This commitment to understated sophistication is a hallmark of Taylor's design reputation.
Crafted from tropical mahogany, the neck sports Taylor's signature neck joint, with emphasis on stability. With a West African Crelicam ebony fingerboard, and twenty precisely crowned frets, this instrument offers a smooth, comfortable playing surface. The Nubone nut also ensures optimal string spacing and height.
Taylor's Expression System 2, the electronic aspect of the 214ce, translates the guitar's acoustic nuances with clarity and fidelity. This cutting-edge system preserves the natural sound of the guitar while offering accurate control over EQ and tone.
The satin finish not only enhances the guitar's aesthetic appeal but also allows the tonewoods to breathe, contributing to the instrument's resonance. This pragmatic approach to finishing accurately reflects Taylor's commitment to both form and function.
