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.
