This 200 Series Grand Auditorium combines the seamless feel of a slender neck and comfortable body curves with the aesthetic and musical sparkle of Hawaiian koa. Made with back and sides of layered koa and topped with solid Sitka spruce, the 214ce-K SB serves up a pleasing mix of top-end clarity and low-range warmth for a vibrant, expressive tone.
A delicate balance of power and soft-touch responsiveness will impress players looking for an adaptable guitar that performs across styles and genres, making it an ideal choice for live performance, recording and songwriting sessions. This model comes detailed with an alluring matte sunburst finish that wraps around the top, back and sides, along with 4mm dot fretboard inlays, a Venetian cutaway, crisp white binding, a three-ring rosette and faux tortoiseshell pickguard. It ships with ES2 electronics in a lightweight, padded gig bag.
Taylor’s signature shape embodies the ultimate all-purpose acoustic.

Here at Easy Music Center, we care for our instruments from the moment they arrive to when they ship to your door. All instruments are stored in a climate controlled environment and put through a 12 point inspection checklist before being shipped.
First, we check the finish of the instrument, carefully inspecting any blemishes on the surface. Next, we check the playability and setup by inspecting and adjusting the truss rod (if available), bridge, nut, and frets. If the instrument has electronics, we test all of the electronic components to make sure they are functioning properly.
After a thorough inspection, we then move on to maintenance. We start by lubricating any moving parts on the instrument, such as tuning machines. We then move on to cleaning and oiling the fretboard along with the frets.
Once maintenance is done, we stretch and tune the strings and play test the instrument. After this, we do a final inspection and clean/detail the instrument before packing it up for shipment.
We’re excited to be a part of your instrument buying experience.
