Taylor Guitars 114ce, Grand Auditorium Review

Taylor guitars is a name trusted by professional and amateure musicians across the globe for both the build quality and the great sound they deliver. The Taylor 114ce is no exception. This grand auditorium sized guitar is going to change your expectations of what a serious entry-level guitar should be. Featuring a solid Sitka spruce top and sapele laminate back and sides, this guitar looks every bit as good as it sounds.

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.

    I’ve been playing guitar for a very long time since 1970. I stopped playing for a few years, kinda lost interest. After browsing at our local music shop and playing a few of their guitars Yamaha, Gibson, Takemine, Martin, etc., I picked up the Taylor 114CE played one chord and told the sales rep “what the heck was that”! I was blown away and hooked on that beautiful sound, it’s the kind of sound that you dream of. That extremely warm, clear, and bright sound just resonates. When I bought it, it got me rejuvenated and my daily sessions are so enjoyable, it’s so good to play a guitar with a beautiful sound. Aloha!
