Don't you just love the smell of Brazilian Rosewood in the morning? It smells like a good time is just right around the corner. A good time will be had by all that play this fine guitar. We are offering a limited edition 2015 Taylor 714CE Brazilian Rosewood acoustic electric guitar. This is a Cites Compliant guitar, it is stamped on the label. The back and sides are spectacular Brazilian Rosewood. Check out the gorgeous figuring and sap wood! This is a lovely guitar: lovely in appearance, lovely in tone. The Torrefied Sitka spruce top combined with the Brazilian Rosewood back and sides produce lush trebles, warm and punchy bottom end...a lively sound with great overtones that are almost 3-dimensional in character. It is set up with the ES 2 Expression System pickup, has a single cutaway with an ebony fingerboard, and a pearl rosette. The action is perfect...everything is perfect about this guitar. It is a used guitar, but it would be better described as "pre-owned" because we can't find any signs or wear at all. Perfect condition and looks absolutely gorgeous. It's one of the best sounding guitars we have in the shop right now, and one of the most satisfying guitars we've played in a long time. Comes with original hard case.Learn More
The 714ce sports Taylor’s popular and versatile Grand Auditorium body style and incorporates a compelling alternate take on the classic rosewood/spruce pairing, featuring Lutz spruce rather than Sitka. Together with Taylor’s Performance bracing and tone-enhancing protein glues, players can expect a bold and dynamic voice that balances rosewood’s natural overtone sparkle with a strong fundamental focus, giving this and other 700 Series guitars a rootsy musical personality with expansive musical range. That musical character is matched by an aesthetic that’s grounded in Americana style and refined with Taylor’s precision-crafted details. Rosewood’s mocha complexion is complemented with wood-rich trim, featuring Hawaiian koa binding, a herringbone-style rosette of Douglas fir with maple/black accents, bias-cut Douglas fir top trim, and a “weathered brown” pickguard design with a pattern reminiscent of leather. Modern playing amenities include a Venetian cutaway and Taylor’s stage-ready ES2 pickup and preamp.Learn More
Until now, torrefied spruce tops have been reserved for Taylor's maple 600 series, so this limited edition 714ce Koa/torrefied Sitka spruce beauty serves up a unique treat in both look and sound.
Now, all of you Taylor aficionados may think you know all about this guitar, but you folks need to rethink the norm! So...where shall I begin? Let's start with the front view of this instrument. Yes, it is sitka spruce. But, torrefied sitka spruce. So, you top-off the aged look of the torrefied top with a very tasteful Western shaded sunburst. Now this is something special. The ebony fretboard does indeed have some of the variegation unique to each of these 714ce Ltd guitars. This unique look to each fretboard comes as a result of Taylor's ecologically sound decision to use "imperfect" ebony for fretboards. I feel that this uniqueness to each fretboard is one of the attractions. The nice colorful paua rosette and the pearl Century fretboard inlays, along with the abalone dotted ebony bridge pins all leave you with a first impression that you can't forget. But that is just the top! This Grand Auditorium cutaway guitar has a back and sides of gorgeous Hawaiian koa, normally reserved for Taylor's legendary Koa Series. Big, wide grain, colorful and straight. Upon closer inspection, you'll notice that the back is of three pieces. Koa has a natural sounding midrange and singing bright trebles. When you couple those qualities with the played-in vibe from the torrefied spruce-soundboard, you end up with a smooth, warm and responsive sound and feel. Taylor is making a very limited run of these guitars that will only be available for their Roadshow presentations. At our very recent Roadshow event, this guitar was THE standout over all of the guitars brought in for the show, and there was indeed plenty of competition! Nice hardshell case, the latest ES2 electronics. There is certainly a lot to love about this fine instrument!Learn More
The concept of a used instrument in "mint condition" is usually a myth but this Taylor 756 is as close to mint as you will ever find. We've examined it very carefully and it's hard to believe it didn't come to us directly from Taylor! Saying it is "pre-owned" would be more accurate as this guitar shows absolutely no wear. There are no dings, nicks, scratches, or scuffs anywhere to be found. It was special ordered by one of our regular customers and after having it at his home for a couple of months he has found that 12 string guitar is just not his thing. His loss can be your gain. This is a truly fine instrument. It sounds fantastic and plays like a dream. Strum one chord on it and you'll notice it has a richer, more vibrant voice than ever before thanks to the customized performance bracing. Taylor went back to the drawing board and redesigned their bracing patterns to get the optimum response out of each of their iconic body shapes. Taylor even added side bracing to add rigidity to the sides and enhance top and back movement. Comes with the original hardshell case.Learn More
