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 a Venetian cutaway for full fingerboard access and the Taylor ES-T undersaddle transducer pickup that lets your 114ce guitar be heard in any venue.

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.

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.
