OVERVIEW

The rosewood laminate 200 Series models hone in on the fundamentals of a great guitar-playing experience to give you clear, balanced tone and great intonation. This 214ce-N Grand Auditorium Nylon String Acoustic-Electric Guitar with Veneitan cutaway is a perfect fit for the player looking for a uniquely different sound.

Grand Auditorium (GA)
Body Width: 16" / Body Depth: 4-5/8" / Body Length: 20"
Taylor's signature shape embodies the ultimate all purpose acoustic.

Tonewood
As a guitar soundboard, or top, Sitka spruce is the tonewood standard of the modern era. It's used on 85-90 percent of the guitars that Taylor makes. Its combination of strength and elasticity translates into a broad dynamic range, yielding crisp articulation and allowing for everything from aggressive strumming and flatpicking to fingerpicking. Sitka spruce is Bob Taylor's personal favorite for an all-around great guitar.

ES-N
Like the the ES-T, The ES-N is a single-source, under-saddle transducer, but the preamp design and tone controls were customized to complement the nylon-string voice. Standard ES control knobs enable plenty of tone-shaping and preserve the natural design aesthetic.

Includes gig bag.

A mid-size nylon string with a Sitka spruce top, rosewood back and sides, Venetian cutaway and Taylor ES-N electronics.

Comments about Taylor 200 Series 214ce-N Grand Auditorium Nylon String Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

I picked this up from Musician's Friend as an open box "scratch and dent." Thus, I got it for more than 50% off. Indeed, it had scratched and dings (like someone had played the heck out of it using a quarter as a pick). Still, the guitar looked great (from five feet away), and the sound and playability are not altered. As a gigging musician I'm hard on my instruments any way, so this was no trouble. My second Taylor and highly recommended. I love how the nylon gives you that Willie Nelson tone.

Couldn't be more impressed!

Comments about Taylor 200 Series 214ce-N Grand Auditorium Nylon String Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

I started playing guitar back when I was 12 years old (and boy, are my fingers tired) and it's been 31 years since my last guitar purchase.
I found I needed to replace a classical guitar that I had since 12 years old, one of many but the only nylon string guitar in my collection.
I have to say, that I've been to the Taylor Guitars factory tour and they have an awesome vibe. While I bought at the "lower end" of what they have to offer in Nylon string guitars, I have to point out that this is nothing but a great time playing it!

      Comments about Taylor 200 Series 214ce-N Grand Auditorium Nylon String Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

      I'm very pleased with my purchase of a Taylor guitar from Musician's Friend. The first guitar I ordered had a cosmetic issue that I addressed and it was resolved very professionally and politely. I sent the guitar back and received a much more cosmetically pleasing guitar. They all sound great and are somewhat easy to play, although the narrow neck is curved and not typical of a classical guitar. I was aware of this fact before I ordered the guitar. I would recommend this model to any player who is looking for a guality nylon nylon string guitar. A gentleman named Brayden Passon was very helpful in sending a note to the distribution center to resolve my issue regarding the cosmetics. Well done, Brayden. Thanks for your help.

      Comments about Taylor 200 Series 214ce-N Grand Auditorium Nylon String Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

      This guitar exihibits all the quality youd expect from Taylor at an affordable price. I'll admit I was a bit skeptical about laminate for sides and back, but Taylor did a great job striking a balance of affordability and tone. Once you plug in the 214ce, you quickly forget about acoustic sacrifices made as the electronics are every bit as good as their top ofvthe line models. While the tobacco/sunburst and black models look nicer than their natural counteroarts, I personally felt the tone was better on the natural model.
