Taylor 114ce-N Nylon String
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’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.
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.

Their most popular shape and a good place to begin your search
As Taylor's most popular and versatile body shape, the mid-size Grand Auditorium arrived in 1994 bearing refined proportions that fell between a Dreadnought and Grand Concert.
While the bigger Dreadnought was traditionally considered a flatpicker’s guitar and the smaller Grand Concert catered to fingerstylists, the GA was designed to deliver on both fronts.
The shape produced an original acoustic voice that was big enough to handle medium-strength picking and strumming, yet with impressive balance across the tonal spectrum, especially in the midrange, producing clear, well-defined notes that suited both strumming and fingerstyle playing.
The GA’s overall presence tracks well with other instruments both in a studio mix and on stage, and singer-songwriters have embraced its utility both for composing and traveling with one guitar.
Many people want a single guitar that can cover a variety of styles, which is why the GA continues to be Taylor's bestselling shape. If you want a great all-purpose guitar, the multi-dimensional GA won’t let you down.
