Upgraded electronics and a Sitka spruce/Indian rosewood combo yield excellent tone.

The Taylor 214ce Plus adds plug-and-play convenience to the company's popular Grand Auditorium body shape. Combining a solid Sitka spruce top with layered Indian rosewood back and sides, it produces a balanced and projecting unplugged voice. The sleek Grand Auditorium profile offers playing comfort, while the narrow 1-11/16" nut width makes fretting chords and single notes effortless. Taylor's ES2 pickup system accurately reproduces the 214ce Plus's unplugged tone when amplified. Other premium appointments include black plastic binding, fingerboard and bridge. Pick up the Taylor 214ce Plus to enjoy the comfort and amplified versatility of a premium Grand Auditorium acoustic-electric.

Sitka Spruce and Indian Rosewood Provide a Nuanced Tone Profile

The Taylor 214ce Plus pairs solid Sitka spruce on top with layered Indian rosewood back and sides, a combination prized for its balanced and responsive voice. The crisp, articulate highs of Sitka spruce blend beautifully with rosewood's warm, rounded low end. Together, they give the 214ce Plus a nuanced tonal personality equally suited to fingerstyle playing and energetic strumming. The rosewood's rich overtones add vintage character to the spruce's crystalline chime. You'll enjoy the 214ce Plus's versatility in different musical scenarios, from solo gigs to full band settings.

Sleek Grand Auditorium Body Offers Playing Comfort

Many players appreciate the Grand Auditorium for its narrow waist and sleek contours that make the guitar so comfortable to hold. The shapely silhouette fits nicely against your body when seated, promoting ideal playing posture. Taylor crafts the Grand Auditorium body with a tapered perimeter that feels natural in your arms. The slim profile also makes the 214ce Plus lightweight and easy to transport from venue to venue. Plus, a Venetian cutaway grants easy upper-fret access.

ES2 Pickup System Accurately Captures Your Tone

Thanks to Taylor's ES2 pickup system, you can easily amplify the 214ce Plus's inspiring unplugged voice. ES2 uses three adjustable sensors to capture the guitar's dynamic response with stunning accuracy. Active onboard tone controls for bass, midrange and treble let you shape your amplified tone to suit any environment, from coffee shop gigs to larger venues. Whether recording late-night song ideas in your home studio or performing on stage, the ES2 system makes it simple to share the 214ce Plus's exquisite tone at any volume.

Comfort-Enhancing Playability Appointments

Several playability upgrades make the 214ce Plus feel fantastic in your hands. Taylor fits the guitar with a smooth ebony fingerboard and narrow 1-11/16" nut width, making chord changes and single-note runs a breeze. Position inlays at frets 5, 7 and 9 provide subtle visual references. The hand-finished ebony bridge and Micarta saddle further enhance tone and sustain. Plus, a neck profile with just the right contour feels natural and inviting along the back of your palm. An ebony headstock overlay complements the guitar's other premium ebony appointments.
