I didn't mean it was an entry level guitar, I meant it was an entry level Taylor.
Yeah, the 214 is great. I played it next to a 314 but I really liked the 314 better. The 214 neck didn't agree with me like the 314 did. The 314 has a wider neck, is solid wood throughout (the 214 is laminated back and sides) and the 314 has the full ES system, whereas the 214 is a simplified version called ES-T.
Like I said, the 214 is great, but I like the 314 better. I've seen a lot of used ones online for around $1,000.
