What We Think
This guitar is perfect for all styles of guitar playing, anything from strumming, flatpicking to fingerpicking. With the Grand Auditorium shape it feels very comfortable to play. It has lovely walnut back & sides with a solid sitka spruce top. These woods really make the guitar sound beautiful. The guitar also has the patented Taylor neck shape so it plays really well also. This guitar comes with a Taylor Gig Bag which is both practical and looks cool.
The Grand Auditorium is an original Taylor design that was introduced in 1994. It is one of Taylor’s most popular and versatile body shapes, due to producing an original acoustic voice that is big enough to handle medium-strength picking and strumming. It features an impressive balance across the tonal spectrum, especially in the midrange, producing clear, well-defined notes that suited both strumming and fingerstyle playing. It is particularly an ideal choice for singer-songwriters who require a versatile instrument for composing and travelling with one guitar.
The Taylor 114e Grand Auditorium Electro Acoustic Guitar features a sitka spruce top along with a walnut body, delivering a warm, sweet tone with excellent projection. Its grand auditorium body shape makes the 114e an extremely versatile guitar, accommodating a variety of playing styles for the best feel and sound. The 114e Grand Auditorium also features Expression system 2 electronics to enhance your sound and deliver clear, natural-sounding amplified tones for gigging or recording. Additional features include an ebony fingerboard, black pickguard, discreet tonal shaping controls, a padded gig bag and many more.
A significant factor behind the incredible sound of the Taylor 114e Grand Auditorium Electro Acoustic Guitar is the forward shifted bracing pattern, which allows the tonewoods to vibrate naturally, creating incredible depth and complexity. The 'x' in the bracing pattern is moved closer to the soundhole, enabling more of the guitar top to vibrate, delivering maximum tonal quality and projection.
The 114e Grand Auditorium Electro Acoustic Guitar is constructed with a sitka spruce soundboard, paired with a contrasting walnut body. Sitka spruce is commonly used for acoustic soundboards due to it delivering a broad dynamic range and a powerful projection. The walnut body adds crisp highs into the mix, along with deep, woody low end that improves with age.
For added volume at larger events, the 114e Grand Auditorium is equipped Taylor's Expression System 2 electronics. This revolutionary pickup design features three uniquely positioned and individually calibrated pickup sensors, which enable a more dynamic range of acoustic sound to be captured than ever before. This high-quality system delivers a superb tone and responsiveness, either on stage, or even in the recording studio.
