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 susceptible 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 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.

    Bought this guitar after about a 20 year break from playing. I have to say that I enjoy playing this more than my electric. Wonderful sound, great finish, awesome guitar for the money. I did quite some research before purchase and this guitar was the right choice.

    Exceeds any other guitar in the price range

    By Caleb

    from MURRIETA

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

    I purchased this guitar a little bit less than a year ago. Honestly, this is a perfect guitar. There is nothing to complain about on it. It is the most comfortable guitar I have ever played. In my opinion, it feels better than any other guitar on the market - period. I have played Gibson's, Martin's, and even other Taylor's in the high-end price range and the playability of this instrument exceeds all of them by a longshot. Perhaps it just perfectly matches my body shape and what-not. However, you have to consider purchasing this guitar. You cannot get a better acoustic in this price range. On a scale of 1 to 10, it is 11/10 for me.

    Playability is wonderful; great and easy neck action. Sounds beautiful as somewhere between my MartinDreadnought and my smaller Ibanez Concert model. Crisp, clear and melodic. Looks great and excellent craftsmanship. Taylor does it again!!! Buy this Guitar. Top of the line and affordable.

    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:

      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.

          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.

              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.

                  Absolutely fantastic guitar. I will say that I had to take back several for bad necks, so make sure you check yours out before taking yours home. I can't explain it, but this Deluxe sounds better than most of the more expensive models (314, 414, 614, etc). It is also hands down better than the regular 214 ce. I don't know how to describe it, but the 214 ce deluxe is superb. Get it and you won't regret it.

                      I was very impressed with this guitar when I received it in the mail. First off, the guitar case is extremely nice and fits the guitar perfectly. The guitar is absolutely stunning and can't keep my eyes off of it. The Indian Rosewood is a great look that gets me tons of complements. And...don't forget about the amazing sound this guitar creates. The guitar has a very full sound and well balanced. Once I start playing it, I have trouble putting it back down. Definitely recommend spending the extra for the deluxe over the regular. You will regret the decision if not.

                      This guitar is an alright sounding guitar, however it lacks the bright sound/constant ringing of the solid wood Taylor guitars. I used to own a Taylor 314ce a few years ago, and sold it. Subsequently, I was looking again for a great guitar that would compare to the 314ce's excellent pure tone quality. This guitar does not have the pure resonance sound that the Taylor 416ce-R has, which was the guitar I exchange it for, with a price upgrade of about $1100 (a bit more pricey than the 314ce). If you are a beginner I would highly recommend this guitar, since it does stay in tune and has good sound which keeps its tone fairly constant. Keep it mind that it is not solid wood, but layered wood.

                      When I unpacked my newly shipped 214 I was amazed by it's sheer beauty. Richer and warmer than even the photographs. Most importantly, it felt right from the first moment I held it. I had tried many other guitars, including some wonderful Martins, but there is no way to describe the mystical bond between man and guitar. This is my go-to guitar. I love its characteristic bright, happy Taylor sound.

                        Was travelling and went into the New Orleans store to pick up some strings. Got a set but they came attached to this Taylor! Didn't go in to buy a guitar but once I played it, I absolutely fell in love with it. Beautiful tone and great playing action right out of the box. If you are looking for a guitar to be played through a PA or amp, I haven't played anything that compares in this price range.

                          I bought this guitar about three years ago, and I'm very much in love with it still! Rich sound, smooth playing, and great intonation. This is a steal!

                            First, the bad; I ordered this online and the first one had some sort of defect of the neck causing many strings to buzz around the 9-12th frets. Even after adjustments. Stressed about it for a few days and decided to return and order another. GC was easy and cool about it with no problems. The second one came in, made a small adjustment to the neck and now....this thing is AMAZING, seriously!!!

                            I'm no pro but wanted to add one, very nice guitar to my quiver and add an electric-acoustic for recording and effects. This is turning out to be a great choice. It has very rich tone and warmer sound to it (not quite as bright as a 114ce). The depth of tone blows away my Takamine (lower end) that I have loved for years. The sunburst and hard case were factors as well. This thing is amazing to play AND to look at. If you're a novice but can afford it and want to add a guitar to help motivate you to play more, this will likely do the trick.

                              I, like many I know, always wanted a quality Martin acoustic. But when I played them side by side, the playability is not even close. I can't believe the feel and how they play!! The sound is also absolutely amazing!! What a great value in an acoustic guitar. Quality case, stays in tune well. The tuners seem to have more travel per note allowing more accurate tuning. I did however want an additional acoustic due to the wide range of tunings used by the artists I wish to play songs from. So I bought a second one exactly the same.
