Taylor 214ce Plus Grand Auditorium Acoustic- Natural

Taylor

A Grand Auditorium with Sitka spruce and rosewood

First introduced in 1994, the Grand Auditorium body shape is a Bob Taylor original. It’s comfortably sized between a Dreadnought and a Grand Concert. The Grand Auditorium offers a full lower register, a clear midrange and a sparkle on the treble strings. The narrow waist of the GA sits comfortably in your lap. A narrow nut width, along with the Venetian cutaway, makes it easy to fret chords and notes. This popular body shape gets even better with the broad dynamic range from the solid Sitka spruce top. Paired with the layered rosewood back and sides, you’ll find that the 214ce Plus is a durable and receptive acoustic-electric.

Taylor ES2 electronics captures every nuance

Taylor’s professional-grade Electronic System 2 provides powerful amplification. This pickup system features three individually calibrated sensors that sit behind the saddle instead of under it. This unique positioning allows the bottom of the saddle to come in full contact with the bridge. Whether you prefer to play acoustically or plugged in, you’ll find the ES2 electronics open up a dynamic range of sound that captures the nuances of the 214ce Plus.

Upgraded appointments complete this 200 Series

Taylor finished off this 214ce Plus acoustic-electric with premium appointments. Forward shifted pattern bracing offers resonance support. 18:1 nickel tuners, black binding, dot inlays and a gloss finish complete the upgrades. The 214ce Plus also includes an AeroCase to keep it protected anywhere you go.

A versatile Grand Auditorium with the works

Players have long loved the Taylor Grand Auditorium, and this upgraded 200 Series acoustic-electric is sure to please. No matter what your preferred style is, the 214ce Plus gives you clarity and balance with a beautiful Sitka spruce and rosewood pairing. If you’re looking to add a solid acoustic-electric to your collection, you’ll find advanced performance and design in the 214ce Plus.
