The Taylor 114ce left-handed grand auditorium electro acoustic guitar in natural finish offers the form and functionality of this popular model to left-handed players. Benefiting from beautifully crafted tonewoods that are shaped to the joyfully playable grand auditorium body with venetian cutaway, and fitted with superb Taylor Expression System T electronics, the 114ce is a fantastic model for players of all ages.
The body is shaped to that of the Grand Auditorium body profile, combining the width and depth of a dreadnought to generate impeccable energy, with a narrower waist that allows treble notes to sizzle with a clear and focused energy. If you're a fingerpicker who craves clarity across the neck, then this is the model for you. The Venetian cutaway also affords greater upper fret access to give you absolute freedom as your tap, sweep, and pick your way through every performance.
The body top is made from Sitka spruce, which is a highly flexible tonewood with enviable resonant properties that make it a fantastic soundboard. Reinforced using Taylor's forward shifted bracing pattern, the top delivers the timbre generated by the tonewoods and dreadnought shape with power and clarity.
The back and sides of the body have been built from layered sapele, which is composed of a central core of poplar that is pressed between interior and exterior layers of sapele veneers. The layered nature of the back and sides gives it incredible resilience when handling changes in humidity and temperature - making it superb for touring guitarists who want a guitar that travels well.
Supportive Sapele Neck
Fitted to the body is a reassuringly solid sapele neck, which is paired with a delightful 20-fret ebony fingerboard that is adorned with 6mm dot position inlays. The neck is treated to a varnish that guarantees a smooth and responsive playing feel, whilst preserving the longevity of the wood.
Taylor's Expression System T Electronics
In addition to the natural sound projection abilities of the tonewoods and dreadnought body shape, the 114ce is fitted with Taylor's ES-T electronics system, which allows you to plug the guitar into an amplifier. The ES-T is a single-source, under-saddle transducer with individual response elements for each string. It features a built-in preamp to give the signal a boost, if necessary, and the same active controls that are on the full ES in more expensive models. These are discreetly tucked away so that they don't interfere with your playing.
Taking care of the tuning are the die-cast tuning machines, which guarantee that your tuning will be held securely, no matter how enthusiastically you strike the strings. The Nubone nut and Tusq saddle work together with the Indian rosewood bridge, to optimise action and intonation whilst creating a seamless link between the strings and body. The Taylor 114ce dreadnought electro acoustic guitar comes with a gig bag, so you're good to get out and gig as soon as it arrives.
The Taylor 114ce left-handed dreadnought electro acoustic guitar in natural comes equipped with Elixir Phosphor Bronze Medium strings, as well as a gig bag to get you up and running for your first gig with immediate effect.
