The price says entry level. The sound says anything but.

The Taylor 114e Sapele/Spruce Grand Auditorium Acoustic-Electric Guitar is a grand auditorium-sized acoustic-electric guitar that will change your expectations about what a serious entry-level guitar can be. The 114e has a solid Sitka spruce top with sapele laminate back and sides. Other features include the Taylor ES-T undersaddle transducer pickup that lets your 114ce guitar be heard in any venue, tusq nut and saddle, plastic soundhole rosette, .

Sitka spruce
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.

ES-T Under-Saddle Transducer
The ES-T is a single-source, under-saddle transducer with individual elements for each string. It features an onboard preamp and the same active controls found on the full ES. Featuring a custom-voiced EQ and dynamic response, the system is powered by a 9-volt battery, with a battery life LED power indicator (which is lit when the battery is being used). The pickup also has a Phase switch for feedback control, which is located on the preamp board inside the soundhole.

Includes gig bag.

  • Taylor wins!

    As reviewed by James Warren on 4/18/2012

    This is my first Taylor and my first purchase from - but I doubt it will be my last of either! The guitars action was perfect, and the sound is very bright and clear. I have a hard time putting it down. GC had it here very quickly in good packing, with a gig bag. I have no complaints at all with the guitar, or with Guitar Center's service during the sale.

  • Incredible purchase

    As reviewed by JEFF on 7/29/2014

    Bought this guitar a month ago and I could not have made a better purchase for the money. The Grand Auditorium size makes it much more comfortable to play and no other guitar in the price range comes close to this Taylor when it comes to sound. The action is very crisp and clear and loud if you want it to be. The laminate sapele back and sides look beautiful and the sitka spruce top gives it a great tone. Even though this is a low end Taylor, they do not skimp on the craftsman ship of this 114e. It comes with he ES-T pick up not the higher end ES pick up system but i assure you that it sounds great on an amp. The pick up was one of my concerns so I am telling you the truth. It is a very solid guitar and i am sure it will be very durable through the years. I highly recommend getting this guitar if your looking in this general price range. Even if you are looking for an expensive guitar you should pick this gem up and play a little bit. I am sure you will say it sounds better than the $3,000 martin sitting right next to it. I probably wont buy anything other than Taylor for now on. This guitar is great and Guitar Center was great to work with.

  • Obvious choice if you value sound, build, playability

    As reviewed by Jon on 9/23/2014

    I wasn't looking for this guitar. I had my eye on an Epi Masterbilt; something with a bit more going on aesthetically. I tried the Epi and numerous other acoustics and eventually decided between two - the Martin X series and the Taylor 100 series. They both had noticeably better sound, tone and play-ability than all that I tried in the $500-$600 range (including Yamaha, Fender, Epi, Takamine etc). In the end I liked the marginally different sound of the Taylor Grand Auditorium 114e. Having always had dreadnought guitars, the different shape is a nice aesthetic change, and I like the snappier sound for strumming/rhythm guitar. The tonal range and resonance is exceptional; it's a really versatile guitar. The build quality is impressive and I rather like the original blond spots/streaks in the ebony (something Bob Taylor has said we'll all have to get used to for the sake of better sustainable harvesting practices - I couldn't agree more, plus I like the unique grain marks. It's my guitar!) The 114e is just great to play. It arrived from GC in perfect shape and almost in tune: I was playing the guitar in about 20 seconds with no additional set up needed. I'm delighted with this guitar, and my experience at the East London CT Guitar Center.
