The combination of a solid spruce top with layered rosewood back and sides gives the 214ce-DLX a strong bass and articulate treble voice. This creates a full, powerful sound, while also leaving an opening in the tonal midrange, which makes it excellent for accompanying vocalists. Using a layered construction for the back and sides of their 200 Series guitars allows Taylor to offer the look and sound of high-end woods at an attainable price point. It also allows Taylor to dramatically increase the yield from a single tree, ensuring that precious woods such as rosewood will remain both sustainable and available. ES-2 electronics and a hardshell case are included, making the 214ce-DLX the complete package!
