New Taylor 614ce
One of the distinctive traits of maple as a tonewood is its sonic transparency, which makes it wonderfully player-reflective. This maple/spruce 614ce features a torrefied (specially roasted) Sitka spruce top. Whatever the player brings to the guitar comes through—it can be played to sound warm or bright. The roasting process for the top elicits a more played-in tone, a more expressive tool in the form of increased dynamic range, greater projection, longer sustaining notes, and more harmonic agreement with chords up the entire fretboard. The 614ce also stands out as one of the most touch-sensitive models in the entire Taylor acoustic line. Whether you play fingerstyle arrangements or strum in alternate tunings, whatever your preferred musical style, this guitar pays musical dividends on what you put into it. Aesthetic touches include a hand-rubbed Brown Sugar stain that highlights the rich figure of the maple back and sides, along with ebony binding, a paua abalone rosette trimmed with ebony and ivoroid, and Wings fretboard and peghead inlays in grained ivoroid. The guitar comes with ES2 electronics in a deluxe hardshell case.
