Quality, style and an attractive price are features you'll find in the 214 at first glance. Of course, one strum backs everything up with great tone.
Taylor's 214G Grand Auditorium acoustic guitar features a desirable gloss finish that you'll take a shine to. 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.
The Taylor 214G acoustic guitar features 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.

If you like the "Taylor Sound" you will love this guitar! I own a 2003 Taylor 410-LTD and I was looking for something more fingerstyle friendly and I'm very happy with the 214!The sound isn't quite as complex as the 410 but hopefully, the sound will mature as the guitar ages. When playing fingerstyle, the 214 is a little louder, it has that great Taylor sound but it seems to be a little more compressed at times. I also have a bone saddle on the 410 so that also has some impact.The 214 responds well to light strumming but the tone seems to fall apart (compared to the 410) when you really strum hard. Single note picked lines sound great.The fit and finish is every bit as good as my US made 410. HOWEVER only the top on the 214 is gloss.My 214 was a heavily discounted level 2 - Very Good used guitar. I was a little worried about the condition given the discount and the "Very Good" and not excellent condition. Long story short, the guitar is absolutely like new. Not even scratches on the pick guard! I am really enjoying this guitar!
