FEEDBACK! - Bob, A quick note of thanks. Got home yesterday and then spent a couple of hours in the evening getting to know my way around the Taylor. It a wonderful instrument and thanks for the excellent set up. Regards
Some extracts from the Taylor website write-up on the current 514ce model, with my adjustments for some detailing alterations in the model spec. over the last nearly 20 years, since this guitar was made.....
Cedarâ€™s warm midrange overtones and quick response make it a coveted top wood among fingerstylists and other players with a lighter touch. On this mahogany/cedar cutaway Grand Auditorium....Mahoganyâ€™s naturally dry, focused voice emphasizes the midrange, lending a warm, clear punch that strummers, blues players will especially appreciate. Appointments include faux tortoise shell binding and pickguard....MOP inlayed soundhole rings, and diamond fingerboard position markers.... With onboard Fishman Prefix electronics....the guitar also features a Venetian cutaway for upper-fretboard access, and a deluxe hardshell case.
Current New RRP - Â£2,599.
