Grand Auditorium Style Electro-Acoustic Guitar with Cutaway
The Taylor 214ce-CF DLX is a grand auditorium shape electro-acoustic guitar; Taylor’s own signature body shape, designed by Bob Taylor and introduced back in 1994.
Sporting Taylor’s most popular body shape, the 214ce-CF DLX has been designed to cater to both flatpickers and fingerstylists.
Impressively balanced across the tonal spectrum but with a beautifully pronounced midrange that produces clear, well-defined notes, the Taylor 214ce-CF fits nicely with other instruments on the stage or in the studio.
Another great feature of the Taylor 214ce-CF DLX is the venetian cutaway found in the body of the guitar. a
With its soft, round lines and sloping peak, the venetian cutaway provides an elegant aesthetic while allowing for easy reach of the higher frets.
Great Wood Combination
The top wood on the Taylor 214ce-CF DLX Electro-Acoustic is solid Sitka Spruce. Extremely versatile and working well for a broad range of playing styles, Sitka Spruce has a broad dynamic range and delivers crisp articulation.
Being a solid top, the already clear, rich and dynamic response of the Sitka Spruce will improve as the guitar ages.
For the back and sides, the Taylor 214ce-CF DLX, Taylor have used layered Copafera (or Etimoe as it is also known).
Contrasting beautifully with the lighter coloured Sitka Spruce top, the layered Copafera back and sides has much darker hues, similar to that of Indian Rosewood.
Expression System 2
Using a breakthrough behind-the-saddle design the Expression System 2 beautifully captures the dynamic properties of the 214ce.
The revolutionary pickup design of the Taylor Expression System 2 delivers the latest in Taylor’s continuing innovation in the world of acoustic guitar amplification.
One secret to the ES2’s incredible performance is Taylor’s patented behind-the-saddle pickup which features three separately positioned and individually calibrated pickup sensors.
This unique placement and specific calibration allows for an increased capture of the dynamic range from the guitar.
Combined with Taylor’s own custom-designed professional audio-grade preamp, you get an exceptional amplified tone with incredible response.
Whether you’re playing on stage through a PA, plugged into an acoustic amplifier or recording directly onto a computer; the Expression System 2 truly delivers the voice of your Taylor guitar.
Tropical Mahogany has been used for the neck which is highly playable thanks to its smooth Satin finish.
Atop the neck is a West African Ebony fretboard which is adorned with Italian acrylic Small diamond inlays for position markers.
White binding on the body of the guitar looks great between the solid Sitka Spruce top and layered Copafera sides while enhancing its secure build.
Forward shifted pattern bracing is used, giving you even more of a boom to this already powerful sounding Grand Auditorium Electro-Acoustic while the Micarta saddle aids exceptional transfer of string vibration into the resonating solid Sitka Spruce top.
