Taylor Guitars 114e
The Ultimate Entry-Point
To an untrained eye, you could probably pass many of the robotic machines in the Taylor factory off as droids from the Star Wars universe. That incredible state-of-the-art manufacturing is part of the reason why they are able to deliver such exceptional quality at such an incredible value with their 100 series of guitars. Each Taylor 114e features a solid Sitka spruce top for optimum resonance with layered back and sides to enhance durability. Of course, the 114e also has the buttery playability, impeccable fit and finish, and inimitable high-end sparkle that Taylors are beloved for. In part, their addictive handfeel is due to their slightly narrower 1 11/16" nut width, which makes for smaller stretches when fretting.
The Glory of the Grand Auditorium
The 114e's shape is the biggest reason why it's such an all-terrain vehicle. The Grand Auditorium body is particularly cool because it's a Taylor original without too many antecedents or influence from "traditional" acoustic guitar design. Size-wise, it lands somewhere between a dreadnought and a grand concert, so it is supremely comfortable to play. Being an in-betweener, it also has stronger midrange presence, and it responds equally well to fingerstyle and pick playing. It captures all of the subtleties and nuances of the player's attack, yet it also sounds full and satisfying when you strum a big chord. And, it has Taylor's killer ES-2 pickup system, so you can be certain that you'll get excellent sound whether you're playing a solo set or a gig with a band.
This makes them an excellent choice for young guitar pickers and people with fun-sized hands, but players of all stripes will appreciate how fast the 114e plays and how versatile it is. So, the 114e is an exceptional choice for beginners, but it would also make a wonderful addition to the quiver of players looking to expand their arsenal and experience Taylor's sonic delights at an excellent value. Whatever your musical proclivities may be, we're sure the 114e from Taylor Guitars will delight and inspire you.
