It’s hard to name that one person who’s never played a guitar, or at least, wanted to. Hobbyists and occasional guitar players are in abundance, but those handful who are in dire need of a good acoustic guitar will certainly like what we’ve prepared.
The 114ce offers both the classic look of a rosewood/spruce Dreadnought and optimization for performance with cutaway access and Taylor electronics. The Grand Auditorium has the width and depth of a Dreadnought, but its tapered waist and contours give it the appearance of a smaller instrument, making it comfortable to play. The tonal balance means it’s full in the lower register, present in the midrange, and sparkling on the treble strings.
Taylor’s 100 Series premium guitars will change your expectations about what a serious entry-level instrument can embody. Featuring solid Sitka spruce tops and either laminated sapele back and sides, both series deliver the quality sound and feel you’d expect from a Taylor. You can feel good in knowing that when you buy a Taylor at any level, you get precision craftsmanship, and great tone.
Tone and playability are hallmarks of Taylor guitars, and you’ll find the 100 Series® delivers plenty of each. Sporting a solid Sitka spruce top and sapele laminate back and sides, the redesigned 100 Series cutaway and Taylor electronics options.
A durable varnish finish offers protection, good looks, and a smooth feel to the touch. The spruce top's beauty shines right through.
The cutaway allows access to the upper frets. Many players moving to acoustic guitars grew accustomed to the cutaways on their electric guitars. Others simply like the freedom of movement into the upper register that a cutaway allows. Nowadays, cutaways are favored as much for their decorative appeal as for their function. The Venetian cutaway is known for its soft, round lines. The sloping peak of the cutaway will vary depending on the shape of the guitar. Grand Concerts and Grand Auditoriums have a steeper slope, while Dreadnoughts and Jumbos are a bit flatter.
