The 214e Deluxe Grand Auditorium Acoustic-Electric Guitar is a professional-grade instrument incorporating innovative design and premium components for flawless plugged-in performance and rich, balanced acoustic tone. At the heart of the 214e Deluxe is a solid Sitka spruce top paired with layered rosewood back and sides, a combination that produces crisp highs, focused midrange and robust low end. Onboard ES2 electronics faithfully amplify the guitar's acoustic voice and provide flexible tone shaping for any live or studio application. With deluxe appointments like white binding, abalone inlays and a high-gloss finish, the 214e Deluxe is as stunning to look at as it is to play.

Built-in ES2 Electronics for Stunning Amplified Tone

Taylor's ES2 pickup system gives the 214e Deluxe a natural, full-range amplified tone and lets you tailor your sound with simple, intuitive controls. Volume, bass and treble knobs provide tone shaping, while a body sensor blends the direct acoustic sound of the guitar with the pickup for added depth and dimension. The result is an amplified tone indistinguishable from the 214e Deluxe's acoustic voice.

Premium Tonewoods for Balanced, Articulate Tone

The 214e Deluxe's solid Sitka spruce top and rosewood back and sides produce a blend of shimmering highs, warm lows and focused midrange that suits any playing style. Sitka spruce is a preferred top wood for its strength, clarity and dynamic range. Rosewood backs and sides add richness, depth and tonal complexity. Together, these tonewoods give the 214e Deluxe a voice that rings out with bell-like trebles, a throaty midrange growl and tightly controlled bass.

Grand Auditorium Body Style for Ergonomic Comfort

Taylor's popular Grand Auditorium body style provides an ideal balance of size, shape and tone. Its width and depth produce volume comparable to a dreadnought, while a tapered waist results in a sleeker look and livelier response. Rounded shoulders and a sculpted cutaway provide playing comfort. Whether strumming, fingerpicking or flatpicking, the Grand Auditorium is a versatile, accommodating shape that makes playing effortless.

Premium Features and Deluxe Hardshell Case

With stylish white binding, abalone Small Diamond fretboard inlays and a high-gloss finish, the 214e Deluxe looks as good as it sounds. It includes a deluxe hardshell case for safe transport and storage. Experience the 214e Deluxe Grand Auditorium Acoustic-Electric Guitar at your local Guitar Center today.
