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.

  • A beautiful instrument with a magnificent sound.

    As reviewed by Peter Kleinschmidt on 3/22/2013

    I love a rich melodic deep sound and I get this from this Taylor. Looking for a smaller guitar as I don't need to work my way down many frets, this guitar met my requirements. But what really struck me first was its beauty. It is a stunning guitar and the sound is excellent. Now this is a Mexican Taylor but... as someone told me... the Mexican factory is only an hour and a half from their California factory and their quality control is very good. If you want a beautiful instrument with a beautiful sound as well as a guitar that is not oversized and well priced, I highly recommend this one.

  • Great upgrade

    As reviewed by Craig Wiles on 4/23/2014

    I upgraded my entry-level guitar to the 214. I couldn't justify/afford a quality all solid model yet, but I am very happy with the tone, playability and feel of this guitar. I know it is a laminate guitar but I can really tell the quality is there - I especially notice the difference in the bass strings. I was first drawn to the 214ce sunburst model after it was featured in Taylor's Wood & Steel magazine last year, but I couldn't justify almost doubling the cost for the same unplugged acoustic sound. This is a great all around body style to develop my skills while my wallet gets fat enough to afford the 700 or 800 series.

  • I love it.

    As reviewed by Steven Rogers on 11/10/2012

    I tried many guitars before settling on this one. The sound is great and even. The wood is beautiful and the neck feels like an old friend the moment you pick it up. I installed a LR Bags active pickup and I love the sound. I prefer it over the factory electronics. At any rate, this is a wonderful instrument for the money. Don't let the reasonable price scare you.,
