Nice to play and great sounding



Awesome costumer service.


Love the sound and craftsmanship of the guitar, sales representative goes by the name Red was awesome he order my guitar as they did not have a new one in stock let me take the display for the day and play it very very nice. When my new guitar arrived I returned the display they were awesome.



Game changer


This is my first guitar built to this caliber and I am more impressed than I expected. I know it doesn't, but it felt like I was instantly a better player, the neck shape fits my hand like a glove making chords and slides easy. The tone generated is rich and deep especially through the built in electronics. The cutaway shape really makes the upper register available which is new to me in an acoustic. I would compare this to any other high end acoustic and recommend it to anyone wanting to commit to their musical journey.





Insane, I went In thinking I was going to buy an American Taylor but this guitar sounded better then any other expensive Taylor in any price range, any Gibson even against Martin, best acoustic I've ever played!!!



I would recommend this to anyone


Greatest sounding guitar ever.



Best acoustic in this price range


After playing budget acoustics for many years, I wanted to finally get a nicer one. After playing dozens of guitars, I finally landed on this one. The playability is so great, better than what other brands offer at higher prices. I had read that about Taylors, and it sure is true. Everything is just a bit easier to play on this. The guitar also sounds great, with a bright, lovely tone. You won't find a better guitar for around a grand.



If I buy another guitar, it will definitely be a Taylor.


I am a beginning guitarist and have played some low end acoustics. I decided to make the jump and after lots of research and playing different guitars, this is the one I purchased. Even though I'm not very good, this guitar has made things easier, with the grat action and really great sound. My friends all want to play in instead of their guitars!



i Love this guitar!!


I ordered this guitar for myself, as a gift from my wife for Christmas this year. So I bought my first Taylor about 3 years ago. I purchased the baby Taylor, all mahogany/ edition. I loved the sound and playability of it. However it failed to stay in tune. So last year I bought a Martin grand auditorium and I just didn't really care for the hpl back and sides.So I did some research and decided on the Taylor 214ce and straight out of the box I fell in love! There is absolutely nothing that I don't like about this guitar. And Sam Ash made the entire process simple and rewarding. Thanks Sam Ash!!
