The Taylor 214ce DLX kind of sneaked up on us in 2017—seemingly out of nowhere, it became our bestselling Taylor for the year. I'm guessing this had to do with the new CITES regulations put in place at the beginning of the year. With restrictions on the international movement of all species of Rosewood, Taylor's Tecate-built guitars all switched to other woods: Walnut, Sapele, and Koa. The one exception? The guitar you see here. It's the only Tecate Taylor that kept Rosewood, hence the increased demand.
And why not? The Rosewood in this guitar gives it a pleasing resonance and reverb—as I've said in other listings, the Rosewood 214ce is the instrument that gets played most in my house. Plus, the full-gloss finish of this Deluxe model makes it both affordable and appealing to hold and play. Think about it: A Rosewood guitar for well under $1500. That's quite a steal.
