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 214ce DLX features Taylor's original Grand Auditorium body which helped establish the Taylor acoustic sound. The popular body style makes for a versatile guitar that yields ample volume in response to light fingerpicking, and reacts to medium strumming and flatpicking with a clear, balanced sound across the tonal spectrum. If you want a great all-purpose guitar, the GA is an excellent choice.

Tonewoods
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. The 214ce DLX features Sitka spruce, 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. Its 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.

    Comments about Taylor 200 Series 214ce DLX Grand Auditorium Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

    I've been wanting to upgrade my acoustic for years and finally decided to. I thought I would miss my old trusty Epiphone, but that simply won't be the case. I've never been happy with a Taylor I've played, but apparently I've just been paying the wrong guitars. The neck and action are great and you can easily barre chords all the way down the neck. The guitar has a nice bright sound, but isn't overwhelming; it's crisp. The Taylor hard shell case is top notch and the tobacco burst finish is beautiful. This guitar has won me over to Taylor and I couldn't be happier with my purchase.

    Comments about Taylor 200 Series 214ce DLX Grand Auditorium Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

    Two years ago I decided to learn how to play the guitar. I started out with a basic Fender which was a good beginner guitar for me. Recently I made the upgrade to my Taylor and I just can't put it down, just an incredible sound. This guitar makes me want to play and learn something new everyday.

        Comments about Taylor 200 Series 214ce DLX Grand Auditorium Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

        Easily one of the best playing acoustic guitars I've ever played. The music store I was at also had a consigned Taylor 614 and it was an absolutely amazing guitar too. But the guy selling it also wanted double the price of the 214ce DLX. The 2nd gen electronic system from Taylor has worked extremely well for me and I foresee using this guitar for a LONG time to come.

          I purchased the black finish 214ce. It's a beatiful instrument, carefully built. The sound is spectacular, either plugged or not. No buzzing whatsoever. The string action is perfect. Overall, couldn't be happier with this guitar.

              Comments about Taylor 200 Series 214ce DLX Grand Auditorium Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

              I bought a Martin GPCPA4, but really didn't like the feel of the neck. Not a fan of the fake wood (black richlite). It just feels tacky to me.

              Went back looking to get the 314CE, but also picked this up. Wasn't initially looking at it, since the back and sides are layered instead of solid wood, but this 214CE DLX just felt better in my hands when playing. It has 1 1/6875 nut where as the 314 and the Martin have a 1.75 nut. It does make a difference depending on your playing style.

              Also love the gloss body. While it is not quite as full sounding as the Martin or Taylor 314CE, it still sounds great and this one just felt perfect. Very, very happy I bought it.

              At 1/2 the price of the 314CE, I saved enough that I also purchased the 214CE-N. Now have a great sounding, playing steel and nylon guitar.

                Great guitar; I have owned Taylor 310ce,414ce, GS mini and a standard 214 acoustic. This guitar plays just as well as it looks. It is not a solid body guitar; but it plays well. Good full sound that does not sound thin or "tinny" when you strum it hard. Better than the standard 214?in sound.

                Purchased as my Acoustic Gig Guitar. Great sound acoustically and affordable. Minus one star for the Taylor ES2 Electronics - which I removed and installed a Fishman Matrix Infinity that is absolutely stunning with this guitar, so now using it for recording too. Taylor needs to stick with making great guitars, not trying to re-invent electronic pickups and sound modeling. This really is a great guitar, just need to upgrade the electronics and you will be amazed. Also - great customer service at Guitar Center from Buzz, much appreciated.
