One of Taylor's most popular acoustic body shapes comes in the form of the Grand Auditorium. The new 114ce has a Grand Auditorium profile with a slick Venetian cutaway. Built using excellent quality materials, the 114ce is a sublime acoustic that responds to all styles of play making it a genuine all-rounder to have in your collection.
The Grand Auditorium body shape was first introduced in 1994 and has remained a top choice for many musicians because it is so incredibly multifaceted. The 114ce also has a Venetian cutaway, offering not just a sleek appearance but this slope in the body provides full access to the neck.
Sitka Spruce is nearly always the choice of tonewood when it comes to making a Taylor acoustic, and this remains true in the 114ce. The top is reinforced with forward shifted pattern bracing which helps the guitar to sing with clarity and volume. The back and sides of the 114ce are made up of layered walnut, an exquisite tonewood which produces a versatile tonal range with deep lows, a punchy midrange and crisp highs.
You can be sure that the 114ce feels just great to play thanks to the Taylor patented sapele neck. The neck has a narrower 1 11/16 inch nut width, facilitating those big bar chords and faster playing methods. The neck is topped with an ebony fingerboard which is home to 20 frets, and of course you have full access to these thanks to the body's Venetian cutaway. Each fret transition is guided by the 4mm dot Italian acrylic inlays.
The natural voice of the 114ce acoustic is transferred beautifully via the onboard Expression System 2 pickup. This pickup is like no other due to its unique positioning behind the saddle. It features three individually calibrated sensors, and their placement means that each note played can be accurately and clearly heard. The pickup and Taylor's custom-designed "professional audio"-grade preamp work together to give the 114ce its phenomenal acoustic tones. Amend your sound to suit your playing needs using the simple controls for Tone and Volume.
The Taylor 114ce offers tuning stability you can rely on thanks to the chrome tuners fitted to the headstock. The Tusq nut and Micarta saddle also work with the tuners to provide durability and enhanced sustain.
The neat, natural finish of the body come with matching slick appointments consisting of a three-ring soundhole rosette, black pickguard and black binding. Carrying the 114ce is made easy as Taylor include a lightweight protective gig bag with each one.
