Taylor’s 114ce is a true jack-of-all-trades acoustic guitar. With the same width and depth as a dreadnought, the Grand Auditorium's slimmer waist provides a sleek look and a pronounced high-end musical response. The solid Sitka spruce top, combined with layered walnut back and sides, offers a balanced tone with both warmth and sparkle. An easy-playing neck topped with a genuine ebony fingerboard features a slightly narrower 1-11/16-inch nut width, which makes forming barre chords easier. Popular with both strummers and fingerstyle players, the 114ce is versatile enough to perform in any genre or musical situation. The 114ce is ready to hit the stage alongside you with the ES-2 electronics installed. It has a behind the saddle pickup. The piezo-electric sensors respond in an organic way through the acoustic energy and produce a natural acoustic sound. It is possible to calibrate these crystals to your own liking if you want a higher output on your bass side for instance. This Grand Auditorium comes with a padded gig bag, that has a spare room for picks, music books, and your tuner. Get to know Taylor’s most popular body shape at an accessible price.
