The product price includes 2 years' warranty and 30 day money back guarantee.

However, the Gear4music extended warranty scheme provides an enhanced service, and is designed to offer a higher level of protection than many 'free' warranties offered by some retailers and manufacturers.

The highlights of this enhanced warranty service are:

  • Warranty is extended to 4 years from the date of delivery.
  • Our Money Back guarantee is extended from 30 days to 60 days (terms apply after 30 days)
  • Collection and delivery costs are included for the first 2 years
  • Claim 50% cash back on the cost of the policy after 4 years if it has not been used!
  • Warranty is transferable if the item is re-sold
  • Loan or replacement equipment will be provided if the product isn't repaired within 30 days

  • The policy can be cancelled within 30 days, and at any time after that for a pro-rata discount

Please note that this extended warranty is currently only available on products sold within the EU or EEA, and is subject to the terms and conditions as detailed on the extended warranty certificate provided.

For customers in outlying areas of the country, the price of the Extended Warranty may be marginally higher, due to the potential for higher collection and redelivery transport costs.

This enhanced warranty is in addition to the standard Gear4music and manufacturer warranty policies, and the Gear4music terms and conditions of trade. No statement or condition of sale contained within these terms affects or restricts your statutory rights as defined under the Consumer Contracts Regulation 2014.

A Grand Auditorium Body

The Grand Auditorium is an original Taylor design that was introduced in 1994. It is one of Taylor’s most popular and versatile body shapes, due to producing an original acoustic voice that is big enough to handle medium-strength picking and strumming. It features an impressive balance across the tonal spectrum, especially in the midrange, producing clear, well-defined notes that suited both strumming and fingerstyle playing. It is particularly an ideal choice for singer-songwriters who require a versatile instrument for composing and travelling with one guitar.

Venetian Cutaway

The 214ce Acoustic Guitar's Venetian Cutaway is renowned for its soft, round lines, creating a visually stunning look that is recognisable on any body. This type of cutaway allows easier access to the upper frets for a comfortable play, and enables you with more freedom throughout the fingerboard.

Sitka Spruce and Maple

The Taylor 214ce-QM DLX features a beautiful sitka spruce top and offers a broad dynamic range with a crisp articulation. Sitka spruce is the most commonly used wood for guitar tops as it generates a broad dynamic range and accommodates numerous playing styles, from aggressive strumming to fingerpicking. This stunning tonewood is contrasted with veneers of quilted maple back and sides, delivering a bright acoustic sound with added warmth, richness and sustain. Overall, this electro acoustic guitar is ideal for singer songwriters due to its versatile utility of reaching a broad range of tones.

Forward-Shifted Pattern Bracing

A significant factor behind the incredible sound of the 214ce-QM Deluxe is the forward shifted bracing pattern, which allows the tonewoods to vibrate naturally, creating incredible depth and complexity. The 'x' in the bracing pattern is moved closer to the soundhole, enabling the top of the acostuic guitar to to vibrate more, delivering maximum tonal quality and projection. It also features Taylor's relief rout, which is a tone-enhancing voicing technique in which a groove is carved along the inside edges of the top, resulting in an increased bass and volume with a balanced tone.

Expression System 2 Electronics

The guitar not only boasts stunning tonewoods and craftsmanship, but also features Taylor's expression system 2. Equipped with a saddle pickup that features three uniquely positioned and individually calibrated pickup sensors, the system provides a dynamic range of acoustic sound that captured the essence of the guitar's natural tone. The expression system 2 produces exceptional amplified tones and responsiveness either on stage or in the studio.

All of Taylor’s guitars include an official Taylor case or gig bag, and customers can benefit from a FREE 12 year Taylor European warranty when registering their purchased guitar at www.taylorguitars.com
