It’s fun to explore the unique sonic flavors and textures of a nylon-string guitar. The Grand Auditorium 114ce-N serves up an inviting option, blending legendary Taylor playability with clear, balanced acoustic tone. The guitar is strung with D’Addario’s Pro-Arté Carbon Hard Tension strings, which feature carbon treble strings and Dynacore composite core bass strings. These blend the musicality of a traditional gut string with a richer, louder modern voice that players will love. The guitar’s layered walnut back and sides are paired with a solid Sitka spruce top, and modern amenities include a cutaway and onboard ES-N electronics, plus a convenient gig bag for easy portability. However you plan to use it, a nylon-string guitar will make an inspiring addition to your acoustic toolbox.
Like the 200 Series, the sapele 100 Series incorporates layered back and sides, which offer extra resilience to fluctuating climate conditions, and a slightly narrower 1 11/16-inch neck. It’s one of the best full-size guitars you’ll find for the money, especially with the availability of Taylor’s Expression System 2 pickup. It makes a viable performance tool, a great entry-level guitar, or a second utility guitar for alternate tunings.
This cutaway acoustic/electric Grand Auditorium blends layered walnut back and sides with a solid Sitka spruce top, making it a great all-around acoustic that responds well to strumming, flatpicking and fingerpicking.

The Venetian cutaway gives you access to more upper-end fretboard real estate, while our dynamic Expression System 2 pickup produces a natural amplified acoustic voice that will help you sound your best whenever you plug in. The clean appointment scheme includes Italian acrylic dot fretboard inlays, a 3-ring rosette, plus black binding and a black pickguard that complement the look of the genuine ebony fretboard and bridge.

The Dreadnought body’s strong low-end response balances well with the crisp octave shimmer, producing a tone that’s lush and articulate, with lots of dynamic range.

The 1-11/16-inch nut width is slightly narrower than the standard 1-3/4-inch width of other steel-strings in the 300 Series and up, making it easier for developing players to navigate the fretboard.
