Taylor

The width and depth of a dreadnought with a narrower waist for added treble.

Taylor's 214 Rosewood Grand Auditorium Acoustic Guitar features a desirable gloss finish that you'll take a shine to over a solid Sitka spruce top, a top-quality wood known for its balanced tone and clarity. The Indian rosewood back and sides, also premiere wood, produces rich, booming sound, with the perfect element of projection. The 25-1/2" scale, 1-11/16" nut width, and 15" radius adds comfort for intricate movements up and down the ebony fretboard.

The NT neck joint fits into a specially cut pocket in the body of the Taylor acoustic guitar. The frets are supported equally by the neck, creating a more stable playing surface, one that is continually straight, from the bottom to the top of the neck. The mahogany neck is strong and provides added presence and clarity in the tone, and the ebony bridge and fretboard bring out lasting sustain.

Taylor tuners keep the acoustic guitar in precise tuning and chrome hardware add an extra sleek look to this already stunning offering from Taylor.

Includes gig bag.

Taylor Grand Auditorium
The Grand Auditorium was the first guitar shape designed from scratch by Bob Taylor. It was unveiled to commemorate the company's 20th Anniversary in 1994, and since then it has more than lived up to its promise. Although the GA guitar has the width and depth of a dreadnought, its narrower waist gives it the appearance of a smaller instrument, adds treble "zing" across the guitar's tonal spectrum, sharpens the definition of individual notes, and also enables it to rest comfortably in the lap. Because Taylor removes mass from the width of the GA's braces, the guitar top moves faster, resulting in a snappy, bell-like tone. The Taylor GA acoustic guitar is designed to be a strong fingerpicking guitar that also can handle medium strumming, and is exceptionally versatile.

          Comments about Taylor 214 Rosewood Grand Auditorium Acoustic Guitar:

          In 1989 I traded a D-28 for a Taylor 814. It has been my main stage guitar for years. It's going back to the factory for some needed work and I wanted somthing to use while it's gone. I picked up a 214. I'm blown away that a guitar that cost half as much as my other Taylor did in 1989 could be this good. Sure, the back and sides are laminated. You wouldn't know it from the sound. The finish isn't what the 814 is but the sound may keep this one in the rotation. Good looking, comfortable neck, and great sound.

            Comments about Taylor 214 Rosewood Grand Auditorium Acoustic Guitar:

            I ordered this guitar sight unseen, but am delighted with it. Fit and finish is superb; I see no flaws. Not a bad fret on the fingerboard. The sound is better than I hoped for, and compares to a $2500 Mart.... I tried a few years back. A great guitar for the price. The included gig 'bag' is more like a strong soft case. Five stars.

              Comments about Taylor 214 Rosewood Grand Auditorium Acoustic Guitar:

              I've been playing the guitar for over fifty years and I own 7 different guitars from a Gibson ,Martin D28,Martin D18, and a couple other good names and by far I feel this is the best guitar out of all. The quality of the bass is the best I've ever owned. It keeps the tune. Taylor did a great job with this guitar. I have a 3/4 Taylor guitar and really liked the sound and the ability to go up and down the neck- so Taylor got my interest up because the little guitar has a great sound- A definite 5 star guitar with a great price tag, far different then my Gibson price tag

              Comments about Taylor 214 Rosewood Grand Auditorium Acoustic Guitar:

              Good guitar for the value, especially for a Taylor. No big complaints but the small E string sounds a bit flat. I may need to raise the action to fix this. Aside from that, if you're looking for a Taylor on a budget, this is it.

                I sold my 110E to a friend he wanted to step up to a better guitar so again I spoiled myself by buying the 214 Taylor and for the little extra money I am delighted on what more you gain. It plays easy , looks great and I love the auditorium size so much easier to hold. I will always recomend a Taylor.Nice and crisp but also mellow in sound.You guys always come through for me.

                Comments about Taylor 214 Rosewood Grand Auditorium Acoustic Guitar:

                I've played my Martin D-18 for years and love it. But after walking into music stores for years and looking at acoustic guitars, I've coveted a Taylor, because of its easy playability and tone. I always looked at the top models because I was unimpressed with the lower range entry models so it was either buy nothing or wait until I could justify buying a top of the line Taylor. During the course of my wait, Taylor put at a line of unremarkable middle range Taylors and so I largely ignored the guitar altogether. I started to look at a used Taylor figuring I could score what I wanted at a more reasonable price, but high end Taylors pretty much hold their value. Then Taylor started to introduce high end upper middle range guitars and that peaked my interest. I went to a local music store and played a bunch of mid-range Taylors and stopped at the 214. Simply put, the guitar feels, sounds and plays great. Everything that you want in a Taylor without some of the more elaborate bells and whistles. Mine even came with a top quality Taylor gig bag. If you get a Taylor, any Taylor, stay away from the natural top because if you aren't fanatical about humidity control, the top will more easily crack. I use a Planet Waves system for all my acoustics as I want them to last and this Taylor is no different. I bought mine from Musician's Friend during a sale and that brought down the price even more. I came out of the box perfectly set up and ready to play. I haven't put it down since. If you want a Taylor and aren't worried about playing out, this is the one to get.
