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 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.

Premium Tonewoods

The 214ce Grand Auditorium Electro Acoustic Guitar is constructed with a sitka spruce soundboard, paired with a contrasting layered koa body. The Sitka Spruce top wood is one of the most commonly used wood for guitar tops. The combination of strength and elasticity translates into a broad dynamic range, providing crisp articulation and allowing for everything from aggressive strumming and flatpicking to fingerpicking. Perfect for all styles of guitar and players. Paired with layered koa veneers, players can achieve a climate resilient construction, perfect for travelling musicians.

ES-N Electronics

For perfect amplification at larger events, the Taylor 214ce-N Grand Auditorium is equipped with a single source, under-saddle transducer, especially designed to accommodate nylon strings. Paired with standard Expression System controls, players can easily shape their sound at the touch of a button. These discreet control knobs are elegantly designed, and do not compromise the overall appearance of the guitar.
