The back and sides of the 214ce-SB-DLX Sunburst Deluxe Grand Auditorium Acoustic-Electric Guitar are crafted from layered Indian rosewood and paired with a tobacco sunburst finished solid Sitka spruce soundboard, just as the standard 214ce-SB, but features a full-gloss body and a matching inner veneer to cater to this guitar's upscale appearance (the standard 214ce-SB has a satin finished back/gloss top). Tonally, layered rosewood and Sitka spruce give the 214ce-SB-DLX it's clear, well-balanced tonality across the entire spectrum, and whether you're strumming chords or playing a nice fingerstyle arrangement, the Grand Auditorium body is sure to deliver. The Grand Auditorium body shares the same length, width and depth as the dreadnought body, but has a smaller waist. These refined proportions give the GA it's unique acoustic voice while making it the most musically versatile of all the Taylor shapes, perfect for any musical scenario you throw at it—whether your recording in the studio or on the stage, performing with a band or performing solo, the Grand Auditorium won't disappoint. On top of it all, the body of the 214ce-SB-DLX Deluxe features white binding and a smooth-lined venetian cutaway for enhanced accessibility to those higher frets. The sapele neck on the Taylor 214ce-SB-DLX is topped with an ebony fingerboard and features beautiful small diamond inlays as opposed to the dot inlays used on the standard 214ce-SB.
Typically, the 200 Series features the Taylor ES-T electronics, but the 214ce-SB-DLX comes fully equipped with the top-of-the-line Taylor Expression System 2 (ES2), generally reserved for the higher end Taylor models.
This attractive deluxe package is completed by a Taylor standard hardshell case (rather then the hardbag included with the standard 200 series acoustics) to provide this 214ce-SB-DLX with superior protection.
