Rich, distinctive, versatile. This Taylor 114e Walnut features a solid top with layered back and sides. Bringing you the impactful tone of a solid top with the durability and climate resilience of a layered body. And, thanks to a solid sitka spruce top, you have a sound that just keeps on giving. The more you play a solid top, the more its tone blossoms with richness and articulation. Renowned for its broad dynamics and strong, clear, defined tone, sitka spruce is the ultimate soundboard for versatility. It's time to play with freedom.

Plus, with layered walnut back and sides, your 114e still kicks out a powerful, desirable warmth.

And, you can also reap the benefit of the layered construction's climate resilient strength. Perfect for life on the road, your regular weekend slot, and much more.
