A member of the 100 Series, the Taylor 114e Electro Acoustic Guitar takes the form of Taylor’s signature shape, the Grand Auditorium. Crafted with a Sitka spruce top and sapele back and sides, and utilising the ES-T under-saddle transducer pickup system, this is an exceptional entry-level guitar that’s perfect for performers.

Dreadnought/Grand Concert Hybrid

The Grand Auditorium shape of the Taylor 114e gives it the following dimension: Body Length: 20", Body Width: 16", Body Depth: 4 5/8", meaning, in size terms, that it sits between a Dreadnought and Grand Concert. This is no accident, as it picks up the best properties of both shapes, to provide an exceptionally versatile guitar.

With a size that is larger than Grand Concert, it can handle medium-strength picking and strumming, yet being smaller than a dreadnought it is also ideal for finger-style, all whilst providing a balanced, clear tone, with an emphasised midrange. The summation here being that it is excellent for sing-songwriters who need to compose on the go; luckily it also comes supplied with a gigbag.

Sitka Spruce Top, Layered Sapele Back and Sides

The Sitka spruce top of the guitar gives clarity and crisp definition across a broad dynamic range, no matter how you play. This wood type doesn’t end there though, as you will find it growing subtle tonal characteristics as the guitar ages and the more it is played, becoming as individual as your own playing.

The guitar’s back and sides are made up of a core of poplar sandwiched between layers of sapele. This technique of layering woods equips the instrument with additional resilience to changes in humidity, whilst remaining in-keeping with the rest of the guitar’s design and sound and keeping costs down. The back has also been pressed into a slight arch, which makes it more comfortable to hold, stronger, and provides a rich, fuller tone.

The slightly narrower, 1 11/16-inch sapele neck, is exceptionally playable and is topped by a 20-fret, ebony fingerboard with 6mm dot inlays.

Taylor ES-T electronics

When it comes to plugging into an amplifier or P.A system, the Taylor 114e Grand Auditorium Electro Acoustic Guitar keep things uncomplicated with the specially-voiced, ES-T under-saddle transducer pickup system, which includes a Phase switch for feedback control (located on the preamp board inside the soundhole).

This is teamed up with a discreet preamp that offers three controls: a custom-voiced EQ (comprised of bass and treble) and a volume control, with a low-battery LED indicator also built-in.
