The reliability of Taylor craftsmanship and electronics at a budget-friendly price.

The Taylor 114e Grand Auditorium acoustic-electric guitar brings together the best of acoustic craftsmanship and modern amplification. With its solid Sitka Spruce top and layered Walnut back and sides, the 114e delivers Taylor's renowned balanced and dynamic tone. The handy Expression System 2 pickup and preamp let you plug in for more volume with the guitar's natural acoustic character intact. The comfortable Grand Auditorium body style offers versatility for both fingerstyle playing and strumming. For guitarists ready to take the stage, the 114e Grand Auditorium is a smart choice.

Balanced Tone and Dynamics With Spruce and Walnut

The 114e Grand Auditorium guitar gets its acoustic voice from the pairing of solid Sitka Spruce on top with layered Walnut back and sides. Sitka Spruce is prized for its blend of stiffness and elasticity that translates into a broad tonal range with articulate note separation. The Walnut layers add warmth while resisting changes in humidity. Together, these tonewoods yield balanced tone across the tonal spectrum - strong low end, pronounced midrange and crisp treble notes. Whether you're fingerpicking or strumming, the 114e Grand Auditorium projects with excellent clarity.

Plug in for More Volume With the Expression System 2

When you need amplified volume for live gigs or recording, the 114e Grand Auditorium delivers with Taylor's Expression System 2. This revolutionary pickup system uses three sensors strategically positioned behind the saddle. Since the sensors don't sit underneath, the saddle has full contact with the bridge for optimal acoustic resonance whether unplugged or amplified. The ES2's custom preamp gives you control over volume, bass and treble so you can shape your amplified tone. With exceptional dynamic range and responsiveness, the ES2 faithfully conveys the natural acoustic voice of your Taylor guitar.

Comfortable Grand Auditorium Body Style

The Grand Auditorium's tapered body contours are designed for playing ease. Its compact proportions yield ample projection while keeping the 114e lightweight and comfortable. The sleek cutaway grants easy upper fret access for solos. The versatile Grand Auditorium shape suits both fingerstyle technique and rhythmic strumming. From the practice room to the stage, you'll appreciate the 114e Grand Auditorium's ergonomic design.

Layered Walnut Resists Humidity Changes

The layered Walnut back and sides make the 114e Grand Auditorium more resistant to climate fluctuations. Layered wood is constructed by laminating thin sheets together, making it less prone to expansion and contraction. Whether gigging regionally or touring worldwide, you can depend on the 114e Grand Auditorium to stay in tune and play consistently despite humidity changes.
