Been eyeing up a Taylor for a number of years now. Spent some time over the last year waiting for the right opportunity and I finally pulled the trigger an used 2010 114ce I managed to pickup for 850 Canadian rubles. I am more than impressed. Before settling on this I must of tried 12 other guitars including the Taylor X14ce line and some guitars from Riversong and none of them sparkled and felt as good to play as the 114ce. This confuses the hell out of me as with most of my really nice guitars you can really tell the difference between them and their lower end counterparts. The 614 is almost 4x the price but why is it this 114ce with laminated sides and back just sounds so much better?! Not being a huge fan of the newer maple neck model I decided to search out an older one with the mahogany neck and sapele sides and I am glad I did. I love the way the satin finish on the deep pore neck feels to play.
