Upgraded electronics and a Sitka spruce/Indian rosewood combo yield excellent tone.

Musician’s Friend has long appreciated the versatile Taylor Grand Auditorium. With the upgrades on the 214ce Plus, we know this is going to be a great go-to in your acoustic-electric rotation. Complete with a beautiful tonewood pairing of Sitka spruce and rosewood, along with Taylor’s ES2 electronic system, there’s a lot to enjoy about the 214ce Plus acoustic-electric.

A Grand Auditorium with Sitka spruce and rosewood
First introduced in 1994, the Grand Auditorium body shape is a Bob Taylor original. It’s comfortably sized between a Dreadnought and a Grand Concert. The Grand Auditorium offers a full lower register, a clear midrange and a sparkle on the treble strings. The narrow waist of the GA sits comfortably in your lap. A narrow nut width, along with the Venetian cutaway, makes it easy to fret chords and notes. This popular body shape gets even better with the broad dynamic range from the solid Sitka spruce top. Paired with the layered rosewood back and sides, you’ll find that the 214ce Plus is a durable and receptive acoustic-electric.

Taylor ES2 electronics captures every nuance
Taylor’s professional-grade Electronic System 2 provides powerful amplification. This pickup system features three individually calibrated sensors that sit behind the saddle instead of under it. This unique positioning allows the bottom of the saddle to come in full contact with the bridge. Whether you prefer to play acoustically or plugged in, you’ll find the ES2 electronics open up a dynamic range of sound that captures the nuances of the 214ce Plus.

Upgraded appointments complete this 200 Series
Taylor finished off this 214ce Plus acoustic-electric with premium appointments. Forward shifted pattern bracing offers resonance support. 18:1 nickel tuners, black binding, dot inlays and a gloss finish complete the upgrades. The 214ce Plus also includes an AeroCase to keep it protected anywhere you go.
