      Taylor 114 Sapele/Spruce Grand Auditorium Acoustic Guitar (H79565)
Availability:  


An affordable entry into the acoustic world of Taylor.

The Taylor 114 Sapele/Spruce Grand Auditorium Acoustic Guitar will change your expectations about what a serious entry-level instrument can embody. Featuring a solid Sitka spruce top and laminated sapele back and sides. The 114 has the signature Taylor guitar look, tone, and feel—in an affordable package.

Tonewood
As a guitar soundboard, or top, Sitka spruce is the tonewood standard of the modern era. It’s used on 85-90 percent of the guitars that Taylor makes. Its combination of strength and elasticity translates into a broad dynamic range, yielding crisp articulation and allowing for everything from aggressive strumming and flatpicking to fingerpicking. Sitka spruce is Bob Taylor’s personal favorite for an all-around great guitar.

Grand Auditorium (GA)
The GA is Taylor’s most versatile and popular shape, excelling at light-touch fingerstyle to full-blown strumming. Great for mic’ing and recording, the GA’s balanced mid-range and bright tone exemplify the Taylor voice.

Includes gig bag.

  • How sweet the sound

    As reviewed by James Caldwell on 8/27/2012

    I recently decided to start playing again after several years of letting my guitar collect dust. Well I decided I needed something new with a better sound. I played several and this had the sound I liked. Great for the arpeggio style I play and the sound is above board. The action is smooth and fast. I was considering a Gibson or Martin but this low end Taylor blew the socks of the other two. I am a Taylor convert for sure. It's made my guitar playing hobby fun and exciting again. I highly recommend this guitar.

  • Love it

    As reviewed by James Caldwell on 8/11/2012

    Just got home with this and I love it. The sound is superb for what I need. Just a little pickin on the patio. Not a buzz or a hum in it. I am a middle aged intermediate player so this is most likely my last guitar purchase and I couldn't have made a better choice. Highly recommended for any level of player.

  • Eight guitars+ one amp= a taylor 114!

    As reviewed by benji collins on 6/27/2012

    I just got this guitar yesterday and i must say its fantastic, i love the sound and the price. I traded in eight of my older guitars(three acoustic, rest being electric) and an amp. And it was well worth it. I highly recommend!
