Taylor's 214G Grand Auditorium acoustic guitar features a desirable gloss finish that you'll take a shine to. The Grand Auditorium was the first guitar shape designed from scratch by Bob Taylor. It was unveiled to commemorate the company's 20th Anniversary in 1994, and since then it has more than lived up to its promise. Although the GA guitar has the width and depth of a dreadnought, its narrower waist gives it the appearance of a smaller instrument, adds treble "zing" across the guitar's tonal spectrum, sharpens the definition of individual notes, and also enables it to rest comfortably in the lap. Because Taylor removes mass from the width of the GA's braces, the guitar top moves faster, resulting in a snappy, bell-like tone. The Taylor GA acoustic guitar is designed to be a strong fingerpicking guitar that also can handle medium strumming, and is exceptionally versatile.
The Taylor 214G acoustic guitar features a solid Sitka spruce top, a top-quality wood, known for its balanced tone and clarity. The Indian rosewood back and sides, also premiere wood, produces rich, booming sound, with the perfect element of projection. The 25-1/2" scale, 1-11/16" nut width, and 15" radius adds comfort for intricate movements up and down the ebony fretboard.
The NT neck joint fits into a specially cut pocket in the body of the Taylor acoustic guitar. The frets are supported equally by the neck, creating a more stable playing surface, one that is continually straight, from the bottom to the top of the neck. The mahogany neck is strong and provides added presence and clarity in the tone, and the ebony bridge and fretboard bring out lasting sustain.
Taylor tuners keep the acoustic guitar in precise tuning and chrome hardware add an extra sleek look to this already stunning offering from Taylor.

My Dad has one of these. I've played it several times and I'm usually blown away by how brilliant the tone is. The guitar resonates very well and the fret board melds to your hand. You could spend WAY more on a taylor guitar, but this one is perfectly satisfactory already. For musicians who are ready to step it up a level, this would be a great instrument.
In my opinion Taylor makes the best sounding guitars on the market. The 200 Series is great. They are affordable but still play better than most Martins and Gibson for the price range. I own the 214E and love the expression system.
I know some people are not sure about this guitar because of the price. If you've played other Taylors before try this one out. If you're looking to upgrade but don't want to drop a grand, give this one a shot too. I've played the higher end Taylors like the 414ce and to me, this one is a much better deal. The highs are clear and the bass is nice and warm. The action is perfect! I don't fingerpick much but when I do, it sounds crisp. And when I strum, it's almost as good as the 414ce and it's a lot less! It also has a fast neck. If you're looking for a Taylor guitar but without paying Taylor price...try this one out. You won't regret it!
i personally love this guitar, it just sounds so crisp and smooth no matter what, i perform shows with this guitar, it always amazes me and the crowd. i would highly recommend this to anyone who is willing to spend a little extra more for great stupendous quality.
