    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.

    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.

    Great Sound...Great Guitar

    First off the guitar sounds fantastic... great wood and the strings are great as well. Unfortunately the first one I ordered was damaged. I sent it back with no difficulties and the new one is in great shape. Again this guitar sounds great looks great and the hardshell case is nice as well. Highly recomended.

    Amazed

    By Arthur-H5Ahe

    from Kentucky

    Needed an acoustic for summer campfires and was amazed at the sound. I have always been a fan of Taylor, and got a good deal on one used, though it was evidently not used much. Couldn't be happier with a non acoustic electric guitar.

    AMAZING TONE

    By Daniel-Z8wqu

    from Alabama

    I have played several acoustic guitars. When I was looking for a new one, I was playing the high quality expensive guitars just to see the difference, then I picked up the Taylor 214, and WOW, at that moment I knew this was the guitar for me. It has a great tone, plays beautifully. The only thing I didn't like about it, it didn't have an expression system. GET ONE, YOU WON'T BE DISSAPOINTED!!!

    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.

    best for the dollar

    By Eugene R Holmes

    from Centralia, WA 98531

    High end guitar without the high price, plus the neck is slender and cords wonderfully. I like the finish also because the shiny glossy finishes always scratch and you never have the same shiny finish again, but the satin only needs a express turtle wax spray and buff and you always will have a new guitar. The 214 also stays in tune well and sounds as good as my expensive Martins and Gibsons.

    Amazing instrument

    By A. Nelson

    from Boston, MA

    I did a lot of research before buying this guitar. I'm a college student, so I don't have a whole lot of money to begin with. I went down to the local music store and started messing around with the acoustics and found this one. I was using a Dean TSCE, a cheap acoustic guitar, and I loved it. This was my first major guitar purchase, and I have to say it is AMAZING. The sound is perfect. When I say perfect, I mean that this guitar sings. When you play you can actually feel the sound coming out of it. The neck is amazing, I have small hands and I can easily play F bar chords (something I had trouble with until recently and on all of my previous acoustics). I've been playing 6 years and I have to say this is the best investment I have made.Perfect for anyone who is looking to buy a mid-price range guitar that has amazing tone and a beautiful body.

    fantastic envestment!!!

    By Nathaniel-LotZB

    from Chico CA

    I just purchased this instrument today from a local music store. I needed to trade in my Taylor 312 because I needed the money for another piece of equipment. After I had some credit left over I knew I still needed an acoustic so I browsed around. I was about to buy a Guild when an employee at the store directed me toward this instrument. After a single strum I was convinced! I can honestly say that I really like this guitar's tone as much,if not more, than the Taylor I traded in which was over twice the price of this model! It really is a fantastic investment and if you are looking for rich bright tone and great playability-not to mention quite the "bang" for your buck-look into this guitar!

    Believe what you've read about Taylor Guitars

    By Rob<><

    from North Carolina

    Absolutely perfect set-up right out of the box. Just tune it, and play it. After a solid week of play, it's really beginning to open up. I Love it !!! Mine has an unusual figured top...it has an almost flamed look to it. Go ahead and buy one, Taylors are everything you've heard about them, maybe better.

    Excellent Guitar but Buyer Beware!

    By SU-Te_uBG

    from San Francisco

    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!"
