Product Description

The Taylor 114ce acoustic-electric guitar is a powerful performing instrument, with a Grand Auditorum body shape and Venetian-style cutaway. An onboard Taylor ES-T pickup system completes this super-versatile and beautifully voiced instrument.

Check out this zZounds exclusive video for more info:


Ready for the Grandest Auditoriums

The body on the Taylor 114ce is a full-size Grand Auditorium style, which has always been Taylor's most popular body shape. In terms of proportioning, the Grand Auditorium is a guitar with the body depth of a Dreadnought and the slightly deeper side curves of a Grand Concert. Combining elements from these two styles, the Grand Auditorium body proves equally versatile to strumming and fingerpicking styles. With a warm but unobtrusive low end, a clear midrange, and sparkling highs, the Taylor 114ce guitar may well be the most versatile instrument for the money in the whole Taylor line.

The Taylor 114ce's back and sides are constructed with layered sapele wood, just like guitars in the Taylor's popular 200 Series. The 114ce is 16 inches across at its widest point, with a body depth of 4.625 inches. The fast and slender (1.6875-inch width) sapele neck is a standard 25.5-inch scale.

Custom Onboard Electronics

Taylor's ES-T pickup is a totally proprietary Taylor design -- not to be confused with Taylor's original Expression System (ES) pickup designed with Rupert Neve. The ES-T on this instrument is result of extensive development on Taylor's own behalf, and an audibly successful innovation in acoustic pickup design. It is a single-source piezo transducer located under the saddle. The ES-T pickup has a true powered preamp with active controls, and includes highly musical Bass and Treble EQ knobs, as well a master Volume control. The amplifier also has a Phase switch, accessible via the soundhole, to give you more control over feedback occurring between monitors and amps. The Phase switch can also be used simply to achieve a different tone.

No-Frills Beauty

The Taylor 114ce is as understated and elegant as the other handsome guitars in Taylor's 100 series. Its ebony fretboard is set with 6mm dot inlays on 7 frets. There is an elegant Indian rosewood overlay on the headstock, which is accented with 6 solid die-cast chrome tuners that hold your stings tightly in tune. The tortoise-style pickguard has a stylish and distinctive cut. A handsome 3-ply multi-tone rosette and a slim black binding finish complete the thoughtful detailing on this guitar.

Features:

- Grand Auditorium body shape
- Layered sapele wood back and sides
- Sitka spruce top
- Indian rosewood overlay headstock
- Die-cast chrome tuners
- Tortoise pickguard
- NuBone nut and saddle

Product Description

The Taylor 114ce acoustic-electric guitar incorporates layered Sapele back and sides, which offer extra resilience to fluctuating climate conditions, and a slightly narrower 1 11/16-inch neck. It's one of the best full-size guitars you'll find for the money, especially with the availability of Taylor's ES-T pickup. With its auditorium shape and comfortable cutaway, the Taylor 114ce makes a viable performance tool, a great entry-level guitar, or a second utility guitar for alternate tunings. Includes Taylor gig bag.
Customer Reviews
4.5 out of 5 (10 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "AMAZING!!"
Overall: i have been playing guitar for a few years, and i am just recently starting to get a lot more serious about it. i have some nice electric guitars but ive been trying to start writing more melodic stuff and going more in depth with chords, and just playing acoustic instead of hard rock all the time. i have been in love with taylor guitars for years, and a friend of mine told me that zzounds.com lets you make payments on some items. i immediately came to this website looking for a taylor guitar. this one is everything i wanted. the tone is so beautiful. i havnt put it down all day. the playability is so smooth, and i especially love the cutaway which helps me reach more frets that were harder to reach on my last acoustic. i just cant believe how gorgeous the guitar looks, and i cant even begin to describe how beautiful it sounds. anyone thinking about getting this guitar, just know that it is worth every penny! AMAZING guitar!! the free gig bag is pretty nice too, guitar fits perfectly in it, and has a storage pocket for chords/sheet music etc.
Style of Music: mostly rock, or singer/songwriter music, a little blues

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Awesome Acoustic for a great price"
Overall: I'm a seasoned musician - but not with an acoustic. I've been playing electric guitar since I was 10. 17 full years. I can definitely walk my way around an electric like it's no ones business, but pick up an acoustic? This would be the second in my life... and I am no good. Weird how that is the case, probably because I'm more about quick runs, legato picking, sweep picking and heavy riffs versus nice sensual chords and capo's. However with this Taylor the transition was much easier. A quicker neck, nice feel, good looks, great sound, the ability to plug in. I'm stoked with my purchase and I am on a new musical venture. As an electric guitarist I did have to lower the action quite a bit, do that and this Taylor will play like butter. Pick one up, you will be happy you did. I was looking at the cheaper more entry level guitars from Taylor and comparable brands (in the $300-$500 range), I went to Guitar Center and tried them all out. Pick one of these Taylors up and play it...you'll be moved to spend a little more money too! I tested this out side by side with a 214ce as well and have to admit that the sound difference was pretty close to me, so I opted for the less expensive one.
Style of Music: Metal, rock and whatever you'd classify Dave Matthews as.
