114e

Entry level Taylor sound. 

With layered Walnut body, Sitka Spruce top, Sapele neck and Ebony fingerboard, the Taylor 114e Grand Auditorium is a great and affordable purchase for those who seek to buy a Taylor guitar below 1000$. We think that the 114e, alongside the 114ce, is the all-arounder guitar of the 100 series. The 16″ / 40.5cm wide, non cutaway grand auditorium body is easy to work with and projects a clear and open sound, great for fingerstyle as well as pick playing. The Taylor 114e is a great choice for band playing as it comes with Taylor’s Expression System 2 onboard pickup. The Expression System 2 features three uniquely positioned and individually calibrated pickup sensors. With this design, Taylor aims to capture more of the dynamic range of the guitar. If you tend to play a lot above the 12th fret we recommend checking the Taylor 114ce out as it is essentially the same guitar only with a cutaway.
