collapse expand iconDescription

The Taylor 214ce-N Grand Auditorium nylon-string acoustic-electric guitar bridges the gap between tradition and technology. Boasting a solid Sitka spruce top and layered rosewood back and sides, it produces a rich, balanced tone with articulate highs and a warm midrange. The Grand Auditorium body shape provides ample volume and projection, ideal for light strumming or energetic flatpicking.

Cutting-Edge Electronics Reproduce Acoustic Nuance

The ES-N pickup system accurately captures the 214ce-N's acoustic voice and natural resonance. Volume, treble and bass controls enable you to shape your tone with ease. This sophisticated electronics package gives you stage-ready plug-and-play performance.

Sleek Neck Profile for Comfortable Playability

The 214ce-N features a mahogany neck with an ebony fingerboard, a 1-7/8" nut width and a 20" radius for a familiar feel. This combination provides a smooth playing experience for steel-string players transitioning to nylon strings. The Venetian cutaway offers unrestricted access to higher frets so you can explore the guitar's full tonal range.

Premium Appointments and Portability

Nickel tuners, an ebony bridge and a 3-ring plastic rosette provide premium aesthetics. A structured gig bag allows for convenient transport and storage. Whether at home, on stage or in the studio, the 214ce-N delivers a premium musical experience with its exceptional tone and playability.
