Description

What Reidys say...

The Taylor 114e features the Grand Auditorium body shape. This is Taylor's quintessential body shape and acts as a sort of swiss army knife in that it does it all; flatpicking, lead lines, fingerpicking, driving rhythm and more. The large lower bout lends more bass and projection, and the narrow waste and shoulders give the guitar great string to string balance and note separation. If you want just one acoustic guitar to take to a gig - this could well be it!

As per the whole Taylor 100 series, the 114e represents incredible value for money. It's got a solid sitka spruce top; one of the great classic tone woods for acoustic guitars. The layered sapele back and sides add a touch more warmth to the mid frequencies, and deal well with changes in temperature making the Taylor 114e a very road-worthy guitar.

One of the things we love about Taylor guitars is their playability - they play well all over the neck, whatever your playing style. This model comes supplied with a Taylor gigbag, a 12 year warranty (upon registering the guitar online) and Taylor's unique ES2 pickup system. This is one of the best acoustic guitar pickups on the market and, unlike most piezo-style pickups, really helps capture the acoustic tone of your guitar. The Taylor 114e makes for a very good starter guitar, or a reliable backup guitar that sounds great and plays well. Why not try one out in our Premier Taylor showroom?

What Taylor say...

"Like the 200 Series, the sapele 100 Series incorporates laminate back and sides, which offer extra resilience to fluctuating climate conditions, and a slightly narrower 1 11/16-inch neck. It's one of the best full-size guitars you'll find for the money, especially with the availability of Taylor's ES-2® pickup. It makes a viable performance tool, a great entry-level guitar, or a second utility guitar for alternate tunings."

Shape: Grand Auditorium

The most versatile and popular of Taylor's guitar shapes. Its well-defined midrange gives clear and balanced tone. Responsive for fingerstyle and powerful for pickers and strummers to get a lively response. Think of it as a jack of all trades.

Top: Sitka Spruce

The most commonly used wood for guitar tops, Sitka generates a broad dynamic range and accommodates numerous playing styles, from aggressive strumming to fingerpicking.

Body: Layered Sapele

Taylor's layered woods incorporate three layers of wood, with a middle core of poplar and veneer on each side. Layered woods allow a blend exotic looks with climate-resilient construction..

Electronics: ES-2

The Taylor ES2 pickup captures the acoustic and dynamic properties of the guitar when amplified. Pickup sensors are placed behind the saddle of the guitar instead of underneath it which allows them to respond more naturally to the guitar's energy, giving you an amplified sound that's closer to the acoustic tone of your guitar.
