Overview

Taylor's 200 Deluxe Series delivers all the essentials of a great guitar - exquisite playability, a full and articulate voice, impeccable intonation up the neck, and Taylor's top-of-the-line, professional-grade pickup - at a price that's within reach of many.

This collection strikes a sweet balance between tasteful design constraint and aesthetic variety, bringing Taylor's signature tonal clarity and playability into a stage-worthy mix of guitar options. The Deluxe moniker refers to the addition of a fully-glossed body as opposed to a glossy top with satin back and sides. In addition, all 200 Deluxe Series guitars ship in a hardshell case made by Taylor for optimal fit and protection.

Body Shape
The Dreadnought is one of the most traditional acoustic guitar shapes. Taylor's version has been refined to blend its trademark robust low-end tone with a snappy midrange and brilliant treble notes, producing a pleasing balance of power and articulation. If you're a flatpicker or strummer who likes to dig in on lead or rhythm, the Dreadnought should serve you well.

Tone Woods
A guitar's top is the primary filter and distributor of vibrating string energy through the guitar, which means it has a huge impact on its sound. Sitka Spruce is the most prevalent guitar top wood of the modern era. It blends stiffness and elasticity in just the right proportions which translates into broad dynamic range with crisp articulation. Layered Rosewood back and sides create a sturdy and complementary platform for the vibrating string energy sent by the guitar's top. Layered wood is less succeptible to changes in temperature and humidity, making it an excellent choice for players who travel with their instruments or simply require more durability.  

Electronics
Taylor's ES2 is a revolutionary pickup design that delivers the latest in Taylor’s ongoing innovation in acoustic guitar amplification. The heart of the Expression System 2 is Taylor’s patented behind-the-saddle pickup, which features three uniquely positioned and individually calibrated pickup sensors. The location of the sensors enables a more dynamic range of acoustic sound to be captured than ever before.

Together with Taylor’s custom-designed “professional audio”-grade preamp, this system produces exceptional amplified tone and responsiveness. On stage through a PA, plugged into your favorite acoustic amplifier, or direct into recording software, the Expression System 2 faithfully conveys the voice of your Taylor guitar. The Taylor Expression System 2 operates through a proprietary 9-volt battery compartment and easy-to-use volume, bass and treble controls.

What sets Taylor Guitars apart? Unmatched build quality, the most stable and playable necks, a vast array of tonal options, eco-conscious and ethically-sourced raw materials, and a lifetime of service and support.

My first Taylor, and I don't intend to ever change! Compared to the 214ce, which is a very nice, popular guitar, this has even more. The upgraded electronics and hard case (not to mention the small things like a gloss finish on the back and sides and diamond inlays on the fretboard), make this an even better deal than the 214ce, and it is normally the same price. (Seriously, how often to you really NEED the cutaway anyway?). The tone and volume are great. Couldn't be happier!

The guitar is very rich and loud. Although the glossy sunburst makes a nice presentation, you can feel it has low craftsmanship. It is made with layered rosewood (or laminate wood) and the sound is not so woody so to speak. You get what you pay for so it is decent and I would recommend for jamming and rehearsing but definitely not recording and performing as the the sound is inconsistent, but it also may mean I need to set it up.

    Comments about Taylor 200 Series 210e Deluxe Dreadnought Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

    I have been playing a little over 2 years, I have bought several guitars (4 Ibanez and 3 fenders) but this is my first real expensive guitar. I decided to buy something with more quality and have owned it for 2 months already, from the moment I first played it to know, it has stayed in tune. Putting the chords is a lot easier to press. I love this guitar, I do not regret buying it.

      Comments about Taylor 200 Series 210e Deluxe Dreadnought Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

      I had my eye on a Martin for about 6 months, a friend told me to pick up this Taylor 210e off the wall and play it for a second. I feel so bad I had been so ignorant! I don't love the sound of most Taylor's, but this one is the first one I loved even from the first chord! I bought it 3 days later and still have that feeling. This is my first "expensive" guitar purchase and I don't think I could've picked a better axe for the money. It is so easy to play and sounds like a milder J-45. It's a bang for the buck and I reccomed this guitar to anyone who's skeptical about buying a Taylor. This one is so great!

        Sounds like a $1500+ guitar. Well worth the $300 extra bucks comparing to a 100 series, greater quality of construction and detailing than a Martin around this price. You cant go wrong with this instrument.

          Although this is not an upper end Taylor...it sure looks, feels, and sounds like it. Better than a lot of other brands high end guitars. I also own a couple of other Taylors.

            Given Taylor craftmanship and oeoduction control this guitar beats several Martin's and even Gibsons 3 times the orice. Cant speak about the long term but the guitar is a solid all around acoustic for studio and gigs.

              I've always had Taylor guitars growing up and have always loved them. This guitar sounds so good and just feels good in your hands. The sound is super crisp and you can't go wrong picking up this guitar, not to mention how great it looks with the tobacco sunburst on it.

                  I have a 714ce that I bought a over 10 years ago and I felt the need to find a new daily driver to prevent even more wear on my 714 so I bought the standard 210e and was very nice except the pickups where terrible for a Taylor. I could not play dynamically during gigs because I do a lot of switching between finger picking and strumming. When this guitar came out I felt that I needed to give it a try. Played my first gig with it yesterday and it's night and day. The ES2 is incredibly balanced and true. They added the gloss finish warms up the instrument a lot in comparison to the original which at times sounded thin. To put it simply do yourself a favor and spend the extra 100 for the deluxe. It's defiantly comparable to Taylor three times the cost.
