Special-edition acoustic-electric with torrefied spruce top, ziricote back and sides, and ES2 electronics.

Taylor's special-edition 214ce DLX Ziricote acoustic-electric guitar delivers all the essentials of a great guitar—exquisite playability, a full and articulate voice, impeccable intonation up the neck, and Taylor's top-of-the-line, professional-grade Expression System 2 electronics. This special-edition Taylor acoustic-electric guitar strikes a balance between elegant aesthetic design, rich tonal character and playability to create an instrument with striking looks and a bold, powerful tone.

The special-edition 214ce DLX Ziricote acoustic-electric boasts a solid torrefied Sitka spruce top for added power and tonal depth, with exquisite ziricote back and sides to yield a punchy, powerful voice that adapts beautifully across a variety of playing styles and musical genres. Serving up striking looks along with bold tone, this refined Grand Auditorium sets a high bar for musical utility and visual appeal. In addition to beauty and tone, other noteworthy appointments include a comfortable Taylor neck that makes fretting a breeze, built-in Taylor ES2 electronics that provide organic sound whenever you need to plug in, forward-shifted X-bracing pattern, small diamond inlay pattern, and a Taylor Deluxe hardshell case for maximum protection.

Body Shape
A Taylor original, the Grand Auditorium helped establish the Taylor acoustic sound. The popular body style makes for a versatile guitar that yields ample volume in response to light fingerpicking and reacts to medium strumming and flatpicking with a clear, balanced sound across the tonal spectrum. If you want a great all-purpose guitar, the GA is an excellent choice.

Tonewoods
Torrefied Sitka spruce blends the right amount of stiffness and elasticity to generate a tone with broad dynamic range and crisp articulation. Ziricote brings a lustrous visual dimension, adding an alluring organic appeal that elevates this 214ce DLX special edition's artistic personality. Together, you will hear rich projection and clarity, with enough power and punch, to cut through an instrument mix or live performance.

Electronics
The heart of the Expression System 2 is Taylor’s patented behind-the-saddle pickup, which features three uniquely positioned and individually calibrated pickup sensors. Because the pickup doesn't sit under the saddle, the bottom of the saddle comes in full contact with the bridge, allowing all the nuance of the guitar's tone to come through clearly whether playing acoustically or plugged in. The location of the sensors enables a more dynamic range of acoustic sound to be captured than ever before while playing plugged-in. Together with Taylor’s custom-designed “professional audio”-grade preamp, this system produces exceptional amplified tone and responsiveness. Onstage through a PA, plugged into your favorite acoustic amplifier, or direct into recording software, the Expression System 2 faithfully conveys the voice of your Taylor guitar. The Taylor Expression System 2 operates through a proprietary 9-volt battery compartment and easy-to-use volume, and active bass and treble controls.
