I have had the 214 since 2003 and ever since have not regretted the buy. Anytime someone picks it up to play it, they fall in love. The tone is classic taylor quality and the price is unbeatable. Another cool feature is that with age, the spruce top turns somewhat of a rich golden color. Beautiful guitar, beautiful sound, and beautiful price.

great, but 210 way better value

i have played this guitar and enjoyed it a lot. i own a taylor 210 though which is a bit less and sounds better, to boot. they are both all-solid woods the woods are the same, they both have ebony fretboards (i LOVE them!) and they both have the same finish and design. the only real difference is that the body is smaller for the 214. the 210 resonates much more, is louder and i think that the sound is much fuller. i love taylors, but this guitar is really not a good value compared to the 210.

Excellent Guitar but Buyer Beware!

By SU-Te_uBG

The Taylor 214 is the best guitar you can buy for the money, and then some. It is very nearly a perfect instrument with heart-breaking sound and feel, and gorgeous looks. However, be advised: you are not getting the solid sapele back and sides or the ebony appointments; instead, you will get a beautiful LAMINATE rosewood back and sides and rosewood appointments (see specs on 214e). I still love this guitar but, "Caveat Emptor!"

Taylor is the best

By Jake-Fa72s

Well...if you read other reviews....I agree that there are no other better guitars out there in the price range period. Comfort better than a dreaednought and sound and solid wood quality cannot be beaten. Taylor should be kickin Martin's butt in a few years.

great for the everyday non-recorder

By Mac

from Fort Walton Beach, FL

This guitar is great for the price. The sound projection is excellent, and the neck feels nice. This is a great guitar for those who play at home or with friends who do not record. It has a bright tone so for those fingerpickers who want a more mellow tone go for the martin 000x1 or 000M(similar price/quality).

MMM. . .Taylor

By IWishIWereDaveMatthews

from Amarillo, TX

My Taylor 214 Grand Auditorium came in the mail yesterday, and wow, what a catch. I was having a hard time deciding on either the Taylor or a Martin D-15 Custom Rosewood and Spruce. I can't say that I liked the Taylor better, because I didn't get a chance to play on the D-15, but I love the 214, and am not disappointed at all. It has great tone and is easy to play, which is a big help for my small hands. It may not have the pearl inlay, but the wood is just amazing to look at, and I was very glad to see that it had a two-piece back, which I was not expecting. The sound really exerts itself and sounds amazing compared to some other guitars I sampled. To sum it up, it has been a great investment and a great deal, and I fully recommend it to anyone concerned about sound over sight.

WOW

By AdRock-OBCiV

from port huron, MI

This is my first real guitar purchase and I am not disappointed. I have been playing on a junker for about 6 months and decided to buy a nice guitar. I played em all, martins, guild, seagull, gibsons, tak, etc... This is the one I took home. The only thing that I have done is lower the action a bit, besides that this guitar is the best deal around.

wonderful Guitar

By Smitten by taylors

See all my reviews

I had been trying out many guitars until i picked this one up.The martins were nice but if you let you ears guide you this Taylor, for the money cannot be beat.I was impressed by the taylors sound and played many costing thousands more.It wasnt worth it to me and i could have bought about any one i wanted.Taylors warrenty is excellant too.I was so impressed buy this model guitar.Livley sound, excellent sustain,rather light weight. NO real frills so all your money goes in the craftsmanship.Just a wonderfull guitar that will last for years and years if taken care of. I dont see how you could be dissapointed with this one.Buy it and never want for an acoustic again!!!Besides, its TAYLOR!!!

Genuine Taylor@ a tiny price

By AL Davis

from Allentown

See all my reviews

Once you buy and play this Taylor 214, you may very well wonder why you ever spent thousands for the higher end models that now sit idle in your guitar room. The quality and playability(action) are every bit as good as acoustic guitars costing thousands more. Sound to good to be true? Guess what--it is true! Excellent rich low tones, beautiful balanced mids, crystal clear sparkle in the trebles. The Taylor 214 is a true delite to hear and play. This quality, at this incredibe price, from a world class guitar manufacturer - made in America - well, who could turn it down? I have added it to my stall of premium solid wood guitars. Try it, you'll love it!

Good buy

By Guitarded Genius

from San Diego, CA

See all my reviews

so i have had this guitar since march (i have one of the 2006 models). one thing i have noticed is that the projection is great, and the neck plays better than my sg's. overall its a good guitar, and its worth getting over the 100 series because the bracing adds a lot of stability and you don't want an investment breaking. the only sad thing is that the new 200's are made with a laminate back/sides... mine has solid sapele, not laminate... too bad for the downgrade
