Been gas-ing pretty hard for a new steel string acoustic and I pulled the trigger today. I had to sell a Strat to get it, but I never played it anyway! I played quite a few acoustics today and it came down to the Taylor 814 or a Gibson Hummingbird. They both played great and were in the same price range, but frankly I'm sort of tired of the dreadnought look so I went with the Taylor. So without further adieu, here is my new axe!

I think it looks, plays, feels and sounds sweet butter!

Taylors are solid guitars. Congrats dude!!!!! That thing will last forever if you look after it. I recently got a 210 and for fingerpicking it has much more clarity than a gibson. I own a hummingbird and about 7 other gibson acoustics. They win on the strum but for bright picking sounds the taylors do it for me.

Thanks everyone! I'm really enjoying the low even action and the balance of low-mid-highs. It's been a while since I've played a steel string acoustic so much. I've played my fingers raw in the last few days!

I used to have one of those, did you get the brown gator case or the black?

(I got the brown and thought it was amazing! :cool:)

I didn't think to ask if there was an option. They gave me the black one with some plush red internals. It's actually a pretty frikin sweet case!

Looks great Taylors are nice guitars. Acoustics are very expensive though if you look through the big hole in the front its mostly air in there:)

Thats really the only thing left i need to get, is a high quality
acoustic like that.

i like that shape better than the dreadnought, gives you more room
for playing high up on the neck, and i think looks cooler
