This latest edition of Taylor's cutaway Grand Auditorium 214ce features an aesthetic update to feature attractive layered Hawaiian koa back and sides. Under the hood, upgraded internal bracing dials up the guitar's sonic horsepower to give the solid Sitka spruce top more dynamic range. Clean appointments include white binding, Italian acrylic dot inlays, a faux tortoise shell pickguard, an ebony peghead overlay, and satin-finish back and sides with a glossy top. Together with the onboard Taylor ES2 pickup and signature Taylor playability, this guitar delivers pro-grade stage appeal in every way. It also ships in a Taylor lightweight hardshell gig bag for easy transport.

Action set too high , Saddle incorrectly cut, quality imo has decreased, maybe because Taylor is making guitars in Mexico , focus on cheaper woods , cheaper labour. All about making money , not making quality guitars from the US For the price throw in a hard case , because the fret board quality is no where near the guitars make from years past Shame !

The 214CE-Koa is a beautiful guitar to play, listen to and even look at. The size and shape seemed ideal for me, much more comfortable than a dreadnought. The guitar has a lovely, balanced sound for strumming with plenty of definition when playing single notes. I played it through an amp in the store only so far, and the sound is natural. My only misgivings - and they're minor - are: Action is a little high out of the box - I'm more of an electric player, so I'll want to lower it Gig bag is stylish, but at this price a case would be more appropriate.

Big fan of the grand auditorium shape, and the koa I think gives this a warmer bottom. I tried it back to back with the 314ce and liked it better.
