A mid-size nylon string with a Sitka spruce top, rosewood back and sides, Venetian cutaway and Taylor ES-N electronics.

The rosewood laminate 200 Series models hone in on the fundamentals of a great guitar-playing experience to give you clear, balanced tone and great intonation. This 214ce-N Rosewood/Spruce Nylon String Grand Auditorium Acoustic-Electric Guitar with Veneitan cutaway is a perfect fit for the player looking for a uniquely different sound.

Grand Auditorium (GA)
Body Width: 16" / Body Depth: 4-5/8" / Body Length: 20"
Taylor's signature shape embodies the ultimate all purpose acoustic.

As a guitar soundboard, or top, Sitka spruce is the tonewood standard of the modern era. It's used on 85-90 percent of the guitars that Taylor makes. Its combination of strength and elasticity translates into a broad dynamic range, yielding crisp articulation and allowing for everything from aggressive strumming and flatpicking to fingerpicking. Sitka spruce is Bob Taylor's personal favorite for an all-around great guitar.

Like the the ES-T, The ES-N is a single-source, under-saddle transducer, but the preamp design and tone controls were customized to complement the nylon-string voice. Standard ES control knobs enable plenty of tone-shaping and preserve the natural design aesthetic.

Includes gig bag.

  • great late night finger picker

    As reviewed by jim madsen on 3/28/2013

    I wanted a classical guitar for finger style practice I love this thing it's my go to guitar for late night practice without upsetting the family. You can play it loud if you want to and it sounds great with a pick as well I almost always use this first when learning something new just plays like butter and plug it in and you can really gig with this thing, I play it through my fishman amp and its down right amazing .

  • Exactly What I Wanted

    As reviewed by Lynn Thomson on 4/1/2013

    After reading many reviews, watching UTube videos of reviews and reading forums I decided this guitar was exactly what I was looking for. I've been playing steel string guitars for several years. I currently own a Taylor 314CE of spruce and sapelle. I toured the Taylor factory in El Cajon, CA last year so I know the product pretty well. When I saw the new line of Nylon string models I was really excited. I've owned several classical guitars and have found them all very tiring to play. The 1 7/8" neck on this guitar is perfect for my big fingers. I can easily play finger style or pick and strum. The tone of this guitar rivals the tone of any cedar/mahogany solid wood classical I've owned. I played a 414 CE spruce/koa model at another music store, since it was the only Taylor nylon string guitar I could find. After playing the 414 model I went ahead and ordered a spruce/rosewood (laminate) 214CE. But, Guitar Center shipped me the spruce/koa (laminate) model. I'm not a bit unhappy. It sounds as nice as the solid wood 414. Plug it in to an Acoustic Amp and you can make it sound like a $10,000 custom classical. I have no problem changing from steel strings to the nylon string guitar. I practice new songs on the nylon string guitar because it is much easier on my fingers. Long story, but, bottom line, if you want to transition to a nylon string guitar for a different sound and for ease of playability you can't go wrong with this Taylor.

  • different but better

    As reviewed by Robin Marchak on 7/17/2013

    this guitar is not your normal "classical", but it is better in my opinion. first of all the tone is not low and pitchy like other classicals. it has a big and beautiful sound. the cut away is also very useful for soloing. it also comes with a soft "hardshell" case which is very nice.
