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.
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.
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 susceptible to changes in temperature and humidity, making it an excellent choice for players who travel with their instruments or simply require more durability.
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 214 Deluxe Grand Auditorium Acoustic Guitar:
This is my first Taylor and my first "auditorium" guitar. I own many guitars and some costing four times as much as this guitar but, in this price range, I have yet to find a guitar that exceeds the general workmanship, materials and playability of this guitar. I would describe the auditorium body and tone as a "jumbo lite". I don't find this body much more comfortable than say a dreadnaught...but the upper bought is smaller so it is easier to lean in to. I wasn't aware that Taylor was making guitars in Mexico and I have to say, this is the finest off the shelf Mexican made acoustic I have ever seen. You won't be able to tell the difference between this and a USA guitar (at least mine is that way anyway). The new "DLX" is way nicer than the old standard 214 with gloss finish throughout, Ebony board and saddle, and a nice simple mother-of-pearl rosette. Comes with a hard tolex case as well! I think if I had to do it over I would have gotten the 210 DLX instead, I don't find the auditorium that much more "comfortable" to play and it would have been nice to have that Dreadnaught low-end bass. I shopped and shopped around for a useable and well made general purpose guitar in this price range and this is the best I have found (I did get mine at a discount though). I am super happy with this guitar...well done Taylor.
