The 114e features Taylor's popular Grand Auditorium body style, whose physical dimensions have made it a versatile guitar for both beginners and seasoned players. Layered walnut back and sides are topped with a solid Sitka spruce soundboard, which together produce a signature clear and balanced tone with a pleasing projection and midrange focus. This well-structured layering also offers extra protection against fluctuating climate conditions. The 1-11/16-inch neck width is slightly narrower than the standard 1-3/4-inch width of other steel-strings in the 300 Series and up which makes the guitar more comfortable and easier to navigate. Complete with Taylor's onboard Expression System 2 pickup, the 114e provides a true acoustic tone when plugged in and is ready to play whenever you are.
