An affordable grand auditorium with a solid spruce top, sapele laminate back and sides, and Taylor ES-T electronics.
Like the 200 Series, the 114ce Sapele/Spruce Grand Auditorium Acoustic-Electric Guitar incorporates laminate back and sides, which offer extra resilience to fluctuating climate conditions, and a slightly narrower 1 11/16-inch neck. Itâ??s one of the best full-size guitars youâ??ll find for the money, especially with the availability of Taylorâ??s ES-TÂ® pickup. It makes a viable performance tool, a great entry-level guitar, or a second utility guitar for alternate tunings.
As a guitar soundboard, or top, Sitka spruce is the tonewood standard of the modern era. Itâ??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 Taylorâ??s personal favorite for an all-around great guitar.
Grand Auditorium (GA)
The GA is Taylorâ??s most versatile and popular shape, excelling at light-touch fingerstyle to full-blown strumming. Great for micâ??ing and recording, the GAâ??s balanced mid-range and bright tone exemplify the Taylor voice.
Devloped by the same Taylor team that invented the Expression System pickup, the Taylor ES-T Under-Saddle Transducer takes piezo technology to another level. Optimized for the 100 and 200 Series, the system features onboard Bass, Treble, and Volume controls plus custom-voiced EQ and dynamic response.
Includes gig bag.
