A Deluxe Take on a Taylor Favorite: The Taylor 214ce-K-DLX Koa Deluxe Grand Auditorium Acoustic-Electric Guitar.

The back and sides of the 214ce-K-DLX Koa Deluxe Grand Auditorium Acoustic-Electric Guitar are crafted from a beautifully figured layered Hawaiian koa paired with a solid Sitka spruce soundboard with a full-gloss finished body and a matching inner veneer  to cater to this guitar's upscale appearance. Tonally, layered koa and Sitka spruce give the 214ce-K-DLX it's clear, well-balanced tonality across the entire spectrum, and whether you're strumming chords or playing a nice fingerstyle arrangement, the Grand Auditorium body is sure to deliver. The Grand Auditorium body shares the same length, width and depth as the dreadnought body, but has a smaller waist. These refined proportions give the GA it's unique acoustic voice while making it the most musically versatile of all the Taylor shapes, perfect for any musical scenario you throw at it—whether your recording in the studio or on the stage, performing with a band or performing solo, the Grand Auditorium won't disappoint. On top of it all, the body of the 214ce-K-DLX  features cream binding and a smooth-lined venetian cutaway for enhanced accessibility to those higher frets. The gloss finished sapele neck on the Taylor 214ce-K-DLX is topped with an ebony fingerboard and features beautiful small diamond inlays.

Typically, the 200 Series features the Taylor ES-T electronics, but the 214ce-K-DLX comes fully equipped with the top-of-the-line Taylor Expression System 2 (ES2), generally reserved for the higher end Taylor models.

This attractive deluxe package is completed by a Taylor standard hardshell case (rather then the hardbag included with the standard 214ce-K acoustic) to provide this 214ce-K-DLX with superior protection.

    Comments about Taylor 214ce-K-DLX Koa Deluxe Grand Auditorium Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

    Taylor guitars are excellent instruments. The brand cares about its image and its customers, and you can tell by the quality and consistency of their guitars. This is no exception! It's a fun guitar to play because it feels like a much more expensive guitar. The fact that it comes with a case is icing on the cake.

    I am an employee at Sam Ash Music in Columbus, OH.

      Comments about Taylor 214ce-K-DLX Koa Deluxe Grand Auditorium Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

      Taylor has taken is very popular 214 model and upgraded it with koa back and sides. The Grand Auditorium body is one of the most versatile body styles they offer that allows fingerpicking and flat picking playing styles to cut through. Koa, as a limited but popular tone wood, is usually very expensive, but is offered here at an attractive price point. This deluxe model also sports a gloss finish, upgraded ES2 electronics, and a hardshell case. All of these combine for an amazing guitar that is hard to pass up.
