The Taylor 100 series manages to deliver Taylor's trademark craftsmanship, playability and reliability from their premium and custom guitars into a more affordable, every day guitar. The 114E is an electro-acoustic Grand Auditorium, arguably the most versatile and popular of Taylor’s guitar shapes. Its well-defined midrange contributes to a clear and balanced tone. It’s responsive enough for fingerstyle players and powerful enough for pickers and strummers to get a lively response. The 100 series guitars feature a slightly narrower 1-11/16-inch neck too, and combine this with Taylor's patented NT Neck Technology, it guarantees a winning formula for a superbly playable instrument.
In terms of tone, the 114E uses the tried-and-tested Layered Sapele / Sitka Spruce tonewood combination. Not only is this lightweight and stiff, it remains true even with changes to humidity and environment, so you've got peace of mind that this isn't going to go out of tune every 5 minutes like other guitars! Sapele and Sitka work well together to deliver a consistent tonal range, with an extra touch of top end brightness well suited for fingerpickers.
If using live, or fancy turning up the volume at home, the 114E utilises Taylor's ES2 Expression electronic pickup system, so you can easily plug straight into a desk, DI or guitar amp. Tone and volume controls allow you to get the right balance in a live environment.
Any level of guitarist will find something about the 114E to love, but is particularly well suited for relatively new players who want to invest in a better quality instrument from the typical 'budget' starter guitars. If you're just starting out or unsure which Taylor guitar is for you, why not pop into your local PMT Store for expert advice and all the aftersales support you need!
