Overview

Taylor's 200 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. A crisp appointment scheme features white binding and a glossy top with satin back and sides. All 200 Series guitars ship in a lightweight, sturdy rigid gig bag made by Taylor for optimal fit and protection.

Body Shape
A Taylor original, the Grand Auditorium 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. 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 yet receptive 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 Grand Auditorium Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

      Just returned from Guitar Center about an hour ago with my new Taylor. I went with the intention of buying either the Martin DRS1 or the DRS2. Both have that wonderfully rich sound produced by Martins and I actually liked cheaper DRS2 better. The DRS2 was even more full and rich sounding. I had a Martin years ago and loved it. So, I just knew that was what I was once again buy. I even tried the PRS SE Angelus A30E which had a great feel and a beautiful guitar. But the lows sounded muted compared to the Martin. Then I was handed the Taylor by the Guitar Center salesman I was working with and boy am I glad he did. It was more than what I had in mind to spend, especially considering I am a novice and haven't been playing very long at all. But it was so easy to play and the sound is phenominal!....especially plugged in. I love Martins. But, the Taylor was just felt better in my hand and it is a great looking guitar, as well. That is the only thing about Martins that I was never crazy about - the plain Jane look. Sound and ease of play is what really matters and this Taylor is the complete package, in my humble opinion. Well worth the money!!! What a great guitar!!! I couldn't be happier.

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

        In my opinion Taylor is the best acoustic out there. I would take a Taylor over any other similarly priced acoustic. The look, feel, and quality for the money just can't be beat. This particular guitar was a gift for my son, and he absolutely loves it as well.
