Overview

One of the alluring traits of a nylon-string guitar is the way its tonal character can instantly change the complexion of any song. This makes a nylon an indispensible tool for songwriting, recording and performance, letting you weave a different flavor or rhythmic texture into your music. Taylor nylons achieve the same exceptional playability as their steel-string siblings, offering a smooth crossover with a sleek profile neck, a 1-7/8-inch nut width (compared to a much wider traditional classical neck), and a slight radius (20-inch compared to 15-inch on Taylor steel-strings). With a Taylor nylon-string in your acoustic toolbox, you might be surprised by how often you end up reaching for it.

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.

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
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. Taylor's standard ES control knobs (Volume, Treble and Bass) enable plenty of tone-shaping and preserve the natural design aesthetic.

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.

Love my new guitar

By Larry

from Lincoln, CA

Verified Buyer

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

My new guitar has factory installed electronics so I had to buy an Amp to go with it. Of course I did not need the amp , but it is more fun to play since I have the electronics. My new Taylor Guitar is also beatifully made as is my other Taylor guitar. The new one has nylon strings and the older one has steel.

different but better

By Robin Marchak

from fl

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

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.

Exactly What I Wanted

By Lynn Thomson

from Boise, Idaho

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

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.

from ocean springs mississippi

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

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 .
