Taylor's Distinctive Sound in an Excellent Cutaway

The Taylor 114ce left-handed acoustic-electric guitar is a terrific choice for beginning or seasoned players. You'll find the 114ce's sapele neck extremely comfortable and playable, while its Sitka spruce/walnut tonewood combination provides you with the perfect balance of warmth and sparkle. On top of that, the onboard ES2 electronics translate your true acoustic tone when playing plugged-in. Sweetwater has been selling Taylor guitars for quite some time, and we're sure that you'll appreciate the warm, lively tone of the Taylor 114ce acoustic-electric guitar.

Taylor 114ce Grand Auditorium Left-handed 6-string Acoustic-electric Guitar at a Glance:
  • Grand Auditorium body style delivers exceptional high-end response
  • Exotic tonewoods
  • Taylor's Expression System 2 delivers incredibly natural sound with full dynamics
Grand Auditorium body style delivers exceptional high-end response

Taylor's beloved Grand Auditorium body style, featured on the 114ce, employs the width and depth of the dreadnought. But its narrower waist gives Grand Auditorium-bodied acoustic guitars a sleeker look with remarkable high-end response. The comfort of this body style is also a huge reason the 114ce is such a popular instrument for live performance. The body style also helps to sharpen the definition of each note. From fingerpicking to strumming, the Grand Auditorium is a great choice for nearly every playing style.

Exotic tonewoods

The tonewoods chosen for the 114ce offer detailed tone, strong projection, and durability. The layered walnut back and sides offer a similarly warm tone to mahogany. But the layered construction helps the instrument remain stable under fluctuating climate changes and rough handling. The combination of sapele and ebony on the neck ensures a ringing midrange with plenty of top-end detail. And the solid Sitka spruce top is one of the most popular wood choices for a powerful tone that is well balanced across the frequency range.

Taylor's Expression System 2 delivers incredibly natural sound with full dynamics

Traditionally, acoustic-electric guitars have employed under-saddle piezo transducers, but Taylor goes about it a bit differently. Their Expression System 2 uses a proprietary pickup behind the saddle. The pickup's three individually calibrated, precisely positioned piezo-electric sensors respond organically to the instrument's acoustic energy as it's transferred through the saddle. In concert with Taylor's custom-designed preamp (which delivers a 25% hotter signal), the result is a natural acoustic sound with incredible dynamic range and responsiveness to your pick or finger attack. Sweetwater's guitar gurus are mightily impressed with Taylor's Expression System 2. Whether you're onstage through a PA, plugged into an acoustic amp, or direct into recording software, the ES2 faithfully conveys the voice of a Taylor guitar.
