The brand Taylor is a well- known name, when it comes to the manufacturing of high quality guitars. Any guitar with its name associated with this particular company automatically garners attention and manages to turn heads around. The guitars produced by Taylor are superior built, and produce exceptional notes. However, one problem that the guitarists have often complained of, regarding the guitars of this brand, is that they are too heavy on the pocket. Seems like Taylor took notice of it, and launched its 200 series, of which the Taylor 214ce Acoustic Guitar is a part of. With a much more affordable price tag, and an amazing quality, this version is bound to make its player fall in love with itself. If you want to know more about the Taylor 214ce Acoustic Guitar, read the article below, which attempts to give a review of the product:
- Body Composition
The top of this version is manufactured using a Sitka Spruce, and that too with a high quality gloss finish. It is common knowledge that if one were to judge the class of a guitar, one should always look for the material used to manufacture its top. Taylor uses the excellent Sitka spruce to do that, and establishes that this guitar is no less than the ones experts prefer to use. Moreover, the sides and back are made using rosewood, and the fretboard is composed of ebony, which adds to it the sleek look that it is well- known for. This also feels good on the fingers, and multiplies its aesthetic appeal significantly.
One of the most amazing things about the Taylor 214ce Acoustic Guitar is that it offers the depth and richness, of sound, of a traditional dreadnaught, all the while being and feeling much slimmer. In fact, technically, it has the same length and the same width as that of Taylor’s usual dreadnaught. However, the feel still appears to be that of something significantly slimmer, which is great. One may only notice the difference while performing sit-down performances.
The body style complements various types of sounds and playing styles, so one is free to choose whatever genre he/ she would prefer to play on his/ her model.
The overall tone of the model is like that of a high- quality acoustic, because it is able to masterfully combine the depth and definition of sound.
