Sitka spruce has been relied upon for years due to its wondrous tonal qualities, and so Taylor have taken full advantage of this magnificent tonewood and utilised it for body top of the 214ce-K DLX. Offering a wide dynamic range and crisp articulation, Sitka spruce ensures that every note is released from the strings with glistening definition. It is perfect for any passionate gigging and recording musician. As the wood ages, you'll notice that the sonic capabilities of your guitar become more varied and enticing. Each time you play, Sitka spruce's tone opens up - and so do the possibilities of the 214ce-K. Complementing the spruce top are koa back and sides. They enhance the superb sound whilst offering immense durability. The koa construction has been layered, making this guitar wonderfully climate resistant. So, with both spruce and koa at your control, you can project glistening clarity and a beautifully balanced tone.
The grand auditorium body is known for its versatility and brilliant sound projection. With full, rounded lows, pronounced mids, and sparkling highs, you'll have a gorgeous tonal response across the whole frequency range. Better still, the stunning Venetian cutaway makes this guitar dreamy to play. Fingerpick and strum effortlessly as you are granted an exceptionally comfortable playing experience, even when reaching those upper frets.
Slide seamlessly across the West African Crelicam ebony fretboard; its naturally high oil content gives it a lusciously smooth finish. What makes the ebony used on Taylor guitars completely unique is the process of sustainable and socially responsible sourcing that has led to it being in your possession, made possible by Taylor's Ebony Project which takes place in Cameroon. Ebony is an extremely responsive tonewood that offers a beautifully bright sound, making it a gorgeous accompaniment to spruce, mahogany, and koa. Project your music with purpose and brilliant volume, ebony's snappy and crisp attack will then ensure that every single note cuts through the mix astonishingly well, leaving nothing unheard.
One of the most compelling features of this guitar is the Expression System 2 that is mounted discreetly. Featuring three pickup sensors, this electronic system captures more acoustic dynamics than ever before. Combined with Taylor's 'professional audio' preamp, this guitar allows you to plug into an amp, PA system, or recording software whilst always experiencing glorious acoustic tonal properties. Sculpt your tone with three soft rotary controls and achieve a sound that is well and truly unique.
