614CE VCL

Online

One of the distinctive traits of maple as a tonewood is its sonic transparency, which makes it wonderfully player-reflective. On this maple/spruce 614ce, a torrefied (specially roasted) Sitka spruce top and tone-enhancing V-Class bracing take that natural versatility to a whole new level. 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, and together with the V-Class bracing, gives the player 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 our Wings fretboard and peghead inlays in grained ivoroid. The guitar ships with ES2 electronics in a deluxe hardshell case.

Just bought one from the Burlington location and can I say wow, amazing staff and guitar room was acoustically perfect and roomy. I wasn't there to buy the 614, actually I was there to buy the 414ce S.E but when he opened up a brand new box and handed me this guitar I couldn't put it down. It's like it has two voices; for picking and strumming. Picking this 614ce produces a soft, sweet and shimmering tone, while strumming brings out it's true inner voice. Loud, precise and sparkly. I seriously started to drool whilst playing at home so my girlfriend said anyways. In case anyone is wondering though, plugged in is to die for.

Sharp and precise are the words that comes to mind. Clarity and sensitivity on each note is remarkable. Low action and great playability as expected from Taylor?s. Still in the fence with the stained back and sides finish; would prefer to see the uniqueness of maple but that is more of a personal preference. Price tag is on the highest side for maple guitars so I?m taking my time on this one.
