Project Your Sound With a Torrefied Spruce Top

At the heart of the 214ce-N is a solid torrefied Sitka spruce top, thermally treated to enhance the wood's resonance and projection. You'll hear and feel more vibrance and sustain across the tonal spectrum, from robust low end to crisp highs. The torrefaction process improves pitch stability for superior intonation. Sitka spruce is a lightweight tonewood that generates volume and sensitivity even with a light touch. Let the 214ce-N's torrefied spruce top ring out with rich harmonic overtones.

Slim Neck Profile Provides Comfort for Steel-String Players

Taylor designed the 214ce-N's neck profile specifically to feel familiar to steel-string players crossing over to nylon strings. With a 1-7/8" nut width and 20" fingerboard radius, the neck plays smoothly and comfortably compared to wider, flatter classical necks. The slim proportions make it easy to fret chords and quickly move around the fingerboard. The neck construction from mahogany and sapele adds resonant sustain to complement the guitar's rich voice.

Plug in the Taylor ES-N Pickup

The Taylor ES-N is an under-saddle pickup and preamp system designed specifically for amplifying nylon-string guitars. Just plug a cable into the discreet side-mounted output jack and connect to an amp or PA system. The ES-N captures the 214ce-N's natural acoustic tone with impressive body resonance thanks to its rear-placed body sensor. Use the easy-access volume, bass and treble controls to tweak your amplified tone. Share your nylon-string sound with audiences of any size with the Taylor ES-N.

Feel the Resonance of Walnut Back and Sides

The layered walnut back and sides generate a focused midrange punch with extra sparkle in the highs. With its clear, woody resonance, walnut complements the 214ce-N's spruce top beautifully. You'll hear excellent note separation when fingerpicking melody lines or strumming full chords. The slim neck has a 1-7/8" nut width for comfortable fretting and easy transitions from steel-string acoustics. Let the 214ce-N sing with walnut's resonant timbre.
