my first guitar was a baby taylor-loved itmy third guitar was a taylor 414- loved itso it's no surprise that i went to taylor when it came time for me to find a guitar to take with me anywhere i went without worrying abotu messing my 414 up.I gave it a 4.5 in features because i intentionally set out for a non-electric, non-cutaway model. Since that was what i was looking for, i can't dock points for getting what i wanted. The .5 missing is because the endpin wasn't pre-drilled to allow for a pickup to be put in. I had an L.R. Baggs M1a that i had form a previous guitar, and to put it in, i had to have it drilled. A small inconvenience that probably won't affect many people. I LOVE the grand auditorium body style and would swear by it in any setting. Unplugged, i believe it gets loud enough. It has low bass, tight, crisp highs, and a great mid- somethign that can be expected of any taylor.Quality is exactly what you get from taylor-superb. Can't complain at all. Action was great off the shelf.Value is great. You get a solid spruce top and sapele back and sides.I gave it an overall score of five becuase I use and abuse this guitar daily and it just keeps giving back. Mine has really opened up since i got it due to daily playing. I haul this guitar around with me all the time and would reccomend it to anyone looking to buy a guitar in this price range.

I bought this guitar new from MF. The guitar has the Taylor quality you expect and it looks great. The action and neck were perfect. Unfortunately the guitar just sounds thin and overly bright (absolutely no bottom end). I just couldn't connect and sold the guitar. If you want a really bright guitar then you'll love it. I wanted something more well rounded and this just isn't it.

Great Guitar

By Brennan Kenner

from LA

Bought this guitar a couple months ago and cant stop playing it. I love how bright the guitar is and the sound i find is fairly loud. The grand auditorium style is very easy to play and looks amazing. Stays in tune just fine and i have had no problems at all. Would def recommend to anybody who loves taylors and wants an upper level entry level guitar.

if you're considering...

By James Vardo

from MA

this guitar, then stop thinking and click purchase! i abbsolutely love this guitar!!! i play mostly open tunning fingerstyle stuff, and thats what this baby was made for. i installed a fishman infinity matrix pickup. so it still retains it's classic knobless look that i love. only downfall if that it only comes with a gigbag, spend the 100 bucks on a case. and dont cheap out on strings.

Wowza!

By MusicMan907

from Alaska

This guitar is superb. I just bought it at a local music store, and once I tried it, I wasn't getting anything else. I played other Taylor's and Martins that were in the very high thousands and I have to say that this guitar sounds better them some of those. I would recommend to anyone. Great guitar.

Best auditorium for ur $

By snacku05

from California

I've been an owner of this guitar for 3 years now. Bright highs, deep & vibrant lows. The fact that there isn't lacquer finishing lets the guitar breathe and really bring out that raw acoustic sound. When/if performing I really don't care about not being able to plug this in directly, as I'd simply bring a mic up to the sound hole or snap-on a fishman pickup. The round body shape & thin neck makes it feel good and easy to play. Listen & play for yourself!

Taylor 114

By Nolind

from Devon. UK

See all my reviews

Excellent guitar. Excellent sound and build quality. Buy a Martin for this price and you'll get Formica back and sides and a neck made from scraps. Don't get me wrong I love Martins but theres no such thing as a good cheap Martin. The Taylor however has a bright resonant tone particularly suited to finger-picking or flat picking. I find it does lose its composure a little if you strum too hard but that's the nature of the beast. It's not a D28 and never will be. Nor did it cost $3,000

This is no way an "entry level" guitar. Sure, the back and sides might be laminate, but don't knock it just because of that This guitar delivers at least 95% of that signature Taylor tone. Sure, it's not quite as refined as the higher-end Taylors, but it's dang close and there's the law of diminishing returns. If you want an amazing guitar at an amazing price, check this baby out!

Outstanding.

By TomTaylor

from Montreal, Quebec

I wholeheartedly agree with the other reviews that say this guitar is not in the 'beginner' class of guitars. I shopped around for about a month before I found this Taylor. I played it everyday for a week straight. It has a crisp, bright tune. It is easy to play. The value is unreal. 10/10

totally worth every buck

By elad-bRCtT

from baltimore maryland

I went to the music store and played this guitar and I was SOO blown away by its warm smooth yet bright tone. Trust me I've been looking for a new acoustic for a while so of course I looked around and played every guitar in the price range and none of them sounded nearly as good as this guitar. I even played some martins that were a bit more pricey but nooo nothing on this guitar. The neck feels a little weird but I dig how theres no finish on it, I'll get used to it. I dig the all natural =] ps. Andy McKee plays one of these in a video of his and you can actually tell how nice the tone is.
