From Our Research Team:
A Very Affordable Taylor Acoustic-electricWith Taylor's new Under-Saddle Transducer pickup, the 114ce is a complete package that's ready to perform. Sporting a solid spruce top, it's big on quality and tone. The 114ce defies the logic of most starter guitars by providing a really great-sounding instrument that extremely well-built. Laminated sapele back and sides and a solid spruce top make for crisp and well-defined sound in this versatile mid-priced guitar. If you're in need of stellar Taylor tone, but can't swing the price on the higher-end models, the 114ce is certainly well worth a look!
Taylor 114ce at a Glance:
Grand Auditorium Cutaway Body Style
Taylor's Grand Auditorium combines the width and depth of a Dreadnought with a narrower waist. Its sleek design yields a strong treble zing across the tonal spectrum and sharpens the definition of individual notes. The Grand Auditorium is a strong fingerpicking guitar that also adapts well to medium strumming.
Taylor ES-T Electronics
Developed by the same Taylor team that invented the Expression System pickup, the Taylor ES-T Under-Saddle Transducer takes piezo technology to another level. Optimized for the 100 and 200 Series, the system features onboard Bass, Treble, and Volume controls plus custom-voiced EQ and dynamic response.
A durable varnish finish offers protection, good looks, and a smooth feel to the touch. Available in natural finish.

Heaven in my hands!
by from Saint Petersburg, FL USAI've recently decided to upgrade to the Taylor 114ce and I have been nothing but HAPPY since I got her. She came out of the box all tuned up and ready to play. The guitar is gorgeous and it feels like... read more [+] Heaven in my hands. It's the perfect size, and the action was already set at a low position for me, which was great. The Elixer Nanoweb strings are a perfect match for this guitar, making it even easier to play. I've been playing guitar for about 4 1/2 years now (Indie/Folk) and have played some decent guitars, but this Taylor is by far the best! It sounds amazing acoustically or plugged in, and it stays in tune for a long time. Whether I am sitting down or standing up, this little guitar is perfect for me. I've always heard about the quality of Taylor guitars and I am glad I have made the decision to upgrade. It does not come with an onboard tuner, which isn't a big deal for me. I would definitely recommend this guitar to anyone of any level. close [-]

by Sue fromI am happy with the Taylor 114ce. It sounds great and plays easy, and it feels comfortable in my hands. It is a good choice as an entry-level Taylor for someone like me who is learning. There was a pr... read more [+]oblem with the 3rd fret which was a bit too high, causing fret buzz on the low E and A strings. Luckily my teacher is also a guitar repair person so he was able to fix the problem. I'm also wondering if the wrench for the neck adjustment shouldn't be included with the purchase. close [-]

Fantastic Guitar for the Price
by fromThis is one of the best guitars I've played at this price point. The action and intonation are more than acceptable straight from the factory.

One of my favorite things about this guitar is the low action higher up the fretboard. If you spend a lot of time on the higher registers, you'll appreciate this attribute.
The guitar has a very bright, clean sound, which makes sense as it's a very light instrument. It projects well when it's not plugged in, and the difference in tone between plugged and unplugged is almost nil. My Martin is deeper and more "wooden" sounding; the Taylor really expands my acoustic tone options. close [-]
Bang for the Buck
by Lee Marett from Farmington, New MexicoThis Taylor sounds great. I love the clarity and crispness of the mids and highs while the bass is good for a guitar of this size and shape. It plays well but not quite as easy as my Takamine ef341.... read more [+] I wish they made this in a 116 series with the slightly larger body to give a little better bass response. close [-]
