collapse expand iconDescription

Taylor Guitars is proud to introduce the 214ce-BLK DLX Grand Auditorium acoustic-electric guitar. This premium instrument delivers professional-grade performance and features at an accessible price point. Its solid Sitka spruce top and layered maple back and sides provide a crisp, articulate voice that projects well in live and recording scenarios. The Grand Auditorium body shape yields a balanced tone that suits both fingerpicking and strumming styles.

Premium Components for Professional Performance

The 214ce-BLK DLX is equipped with high-quality components to meet the demands of serious players. It has a sturdy sapele neck, smooth ebony fingerboard and durable gloss black finish. Premium die-cast tuners keep the guitar in tune through rigorous playing. For plugged-in performance, the onboard ES2 electronics system faithfully amplifies the 214ce-BLK DLX's acoustic tone with active bass and treble controls to shape your sound.

Versatile Grand Auditorium Body Style

Taylor's popular Grand Auditorium body style provides a versatile musical platform. Its mid-size shape offers comfortable playability while producing a full, balanced tone that suits many playing styles. Strum bold chords, pick intricate melodies or flatpick rapid solos—the Grand Auditorium excels at it all.

Premium Tonewoods Produce a Crisp, Articulate Voice

The 214ce-BLK DLX's solid Sitka spruce top and layered maple back and sides provide a crisp, articulate tone with extended sustain and musical warmth. Sitka spruce is a preferred top wood for its strength, clarity and dynamic range. Layered maple backs and sides enhance richness, depth and tonal complexity. Together, these tonewoods enable the 214ce-BLK DLX to sing with a clear, resonant voice.

Fast, Low-Profile Neck Offers Comfortable Playability

This guitar features Taylor's signature neck design for comfortable, fluid playability. Its sapele neck has a fast, low-profile shape with a shallow C-shaped profile. The ebony fingerboard has 20 frets and dot inlays for smooth navigation. Whether you're a beginner or seasoned professional, the 214ce-BLK DLX's neck feels natural and inspiring to play.
