Taylor 114CE Grand Auditorium Acoustic Guitar
With Taylor's new Under-Saddle Transducer pickup, the 114ce is a complete package that's ready to perform. Sporting a solid spruce top, it's big on quality and tone. The 114ce defies the logic of most starter guitars by providing a really great-sounding instrument that extremely well-built. Layered sapele back and sides and a solid spruce top make for crisp and well-defined sound in this versatile mid-priced guitar. If you're in need of stellar Taylor tone, but can't swing the price on the higher-end models, the 114ce is certainly well worth a look!

- Taylor ES-T Electronics
- Durable Varnish Finish
Grand Auditorium Cutaway Body Style
Taylor's Grand Auditorium combines the width and depth of a Dreadnought with a narrower waist. Its sleek design yields a strong treble zing across the tonal spectrum and sharpens the definition of individual notes. The Grand Auditorium is a strong fingerpicking guitar that also adapts well to medium strumming.
Taylor ES-T Electronics
Developed 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.
A durable varnish finish offers protection, good looks, and a smooth feel to the touch. Available in natural finish.
