The unique Taylor-designed pickups are the foundation the Taylor solid bodies are built on. The Classic is loaded with 3/4-size humbuckers featuring a new type of magnet and special winding process. The combination creates vintage humbucker sound with the power and dynamic range of modern pickups.
For this electric guitar to happen, it had to be innovative, unique and worthy of a place alongside the guitars that electric guitar players have loved for generations. When the design group at Taylor invented new pickups and Bob heard them, he knew the time had come. Starting with the pickups, each element of this solid body was designed from the ground up. The ingenuity that Bob Taylor insisted on resulted in the creation of an electric guitar that’s sure to inspire and well-equipped to impress.
Other features include a venetian cutaway for complete fingerboard access as well as the Taylor ES-T undersaddle transducer pickup that lets your 114ce be heard, no matter the venue.The ES-T has an onboard preamp and the same active controls found on the full Expression System. 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.
This Taylor guitar is an affordable alternative for the beginning, gigging musician or as an ‘extra’ guitar for the seasoned players. The rich and versatile tone delivers the quality of sound and feel you have come to expect from a Taylor.
