NGD (Taylor Content)

First pics





















This is a Taylor 114CE. This is the best acoustic guitar I have ever played and heard. I tried it out in a room along side many different guitars(some were more than triple the price) and this was the best. This was the first guitar I've ever actually bought physically from a store. Free gig bag, which seems to be really good quality. I can't get over how great it sounds.

Yea dude. I was playing a guitar at guitar center that i just picked up at random off the taylor wall and i swear its the same guitar. I didnt check the model number but it looks exactly the same. That guitar is the best i have ever heard other than a batson.

Happy NGD.

Happy NGD mate!

Those are sweet, I have one on my radar as well!

Taylor has some great guitars for reasonable prices, have you tried the smaller body Big baby?
That is one underated guitar for its price!

I've never tried a Big Baby out before but I'm sure it sounds great. One thing that I think is pretty interesting about this guitar is the Sapele sides. It has a mahogany neck but the sides are Sapele, and Sapele is supposed to sound quite similar to mahogany. I wonder if that's one of the reasons I like this guitar so much. I played 3 of the exact same model in the store before I picked this one and they were all awesome but I thought this one sounded the best.

Its amazing how much different the exact same looking guitar sounds with only a change in woods. Even the exact same guitar can sound different due to age or some sort of mojo that the tree had.

It is a beautiful guitar, I am stopping by a shop tomorrow to take a look at the new acoustics...may have to leave the wallet in the car!

Cool. Mine was made in Mexico, but it was built very well. The ebony pieces a few streaks and on the other guitars I didn't get there was some blemishes on the top but other than that, all the components seem high quality. I get a little fret buzz on the top E string when I hit really hard. I might go up a gauge next time I get strings?

They were changing production facilities while I was there, all the new ones are Made In Mexico, but still good

Might need a good setup ?

All 3 models did this, the only thing I can really do is adjust the neck right? Would going up a gauge help any? This buzz only happens with hard strumming.

I would get a set up so its good from day 1.

So I played your guitar today and it was sweet, its amazing how nice it feels..like quality. They wanted to much for it so I will have to think about it and maybe flip some gear $2,200 CDN.

I did play a Martin that was just amazing as well and more in my range..

In terms of set up, all you can do is adjust the neck right? It would basically just raise action right?

The nut height neck position and how the strings sit in the saddles can all be adjusted.

I had that exact same guitar. I didn't play it much and ended up selling it to my brother who manages to get himself a lot of poon tang with it.

Nice score! I owned a 110 about 4 years ago and had to sell it for car repairs, then one year ago I found a 110e on craigslist for $300 (!!!), so I picked it up immediately. The guy who owned it had super heavy gauge strings on it, the action was crazy high, and there was a crack between each of the pins. Took it to a local luthier, had everything fixed up and now she plays like a dream. You really can't go wrong with a Taylor

Sorry to inform you guys, but I'm going to have to return it. The fret buzz problem really gets to me. It turns out it has some high frets and all the models in the store have the same problem. It breaks my heart because the sound is incredible, not including the occasional buzz.

The hunt for a good acoustic continues...
