MGR/Rich Pierce's review"Taylor 614CE"

Taylor 614ce
I purchased this guitar from an e-bay seller after playing one at Playground Music in Ft Walton Beach Florida. I paid $1600 for it and it was in perfect shape.

This guitar, quite simply, is the best guitar I have ever played--or seen for that matter. Aesthetically, my 614CE has a beautiful tobacco sunburst stain which is an incredible eye-catcher. People gravitate to it when I pull the guitar out just to see it. Of course, the sound is what is really important, and this instrument never disappoints. The maple provides a warmth not found often with either traditional or non-traditional woods and although sustain could be a bit better unplugged, that issue is never a problem when I use it with my Marshall AS50R amp. My brother-in-law is one of the top guitarists around (Tom Edwards, aka Tom Duarte) and he absolutely loves the 600-series Taylors, especially the 614CE. Also, I got a chance to see Doyle Dykes at Playground Music and he played one of the store's 614CEs (grabbed it right off the wall) as well as his own custom Taylor. What an incredible guitarist! He had nothing but great words about Taylor as a company and the 614CE in particular. That says it all.

I have a bit of trouble with the Fishman blender causing feedback and have to work it a bit to clear it up. The new Taylor Expression System clears this up and is really the way to go.

Without a doubt, Taylor produces among the finest guitars in the world. The quality is unbelievable--this guitar will make you better because of its ease of play and your increased desire to play a work of art. Additionally, I appreciate the ethical integrity and moral values Bob Taylor and his company upholds. He is a strong man of faith (as is Doyle Dykes who is also an ordained minister) and charitable beyond words. That is important to me--highest quality with equally matching ethical character.

This is not an inexpensive musical instrument, but if the price is within your means, I can think of no better guitar to own. If Tom and Doyle praise this instrument continuously, then you know you have a gem in your hands.

MGR/Anonymous's review"Taylor 614ce"

Taylor 614ce
I bought this guitar at the Fret House in Covina Ca. for around $2500.

The clarity that comes from this guitar is amazing. The highs ring clear without being thin or tinny. The Fishman pickup is awesome. I like to use the blender at about the 80% pickup range, which utilizes the condenser mic in the tonehole to add a nice acoustic/unplugged sound.

The only thing that I've run into, and I realize that there are other tradeoff's, is that when I am playing unplugged, it is not a huge sound. Part of this is the tonewood that they use, and the other is the fact that the body style is grand auditorium. Although I have played the jumbo version, 615, and it is still not as big a sound as you would get from an 800 series.

Construction and durability is great. I have had this guitar for about 5 years and it is still in great shape, needing only minor adjustments, and I play this thing everyday.

This is an amazing guitar. It is not an all in one kind of guitar, but what it does, it does impecibly. I've played lots of Martins and Larivee's and I would still buy this guitar every day of the week. To get a better guitar you are going to need to move into the area of hand crafted custom guitars (Olson, Goodall, etc).

Taylor 614ce
I bought this excellent guitar from Wray's Music in Leymoney PA. I had been using a Gibson J185 Reissue and was not happy with it. I paid around $1800 for my Taylor.

I like the live sound of this guitar, since I am an active performing musician. I also like the ease of play.

NOTHING!!

Put together beautifully with quality materials.

Definitely worth the money paid! My playing has improved and my live sound has boomed since I began using this guitar on stage!!

MGR/Gary in WV's review"Taylor 614CE"

Taylor 614ce
Last August while visiting family in New York City, I decided to go guitar shopping. I'd been entertaining the idea of getting a new axe for quite some time. I go to Sam Ash Music on 48th Street(music store row) and I'm like a kid in a candystore. Their line of Taylors caught my attention immediately. I'd never played a Taylor but had heard others on Taylor and liked their sound. Well, I was hooked straight away. Especially the 614ce with it's beautiful bigleaf maple back and sides and stunning finish. And, what a sound!
Just to be fair to myself (and all the other guitar manufacturers), I played about 50 guitars in two days but I kept coming back to the 614.
Day 2 at Sam Ash a deal was struck and I bought the Taylor for $2500 on their 6 months same as cash deal and had them ship it to my home in WV to save about $200


The 614ce has the sound that I have been looking for in a guitar all my life. It has the sweetest tone,unbelievable sustain, and every note and chord just sounds like liquid gold flowing from the soundhole. Good lows, crisp highs, awesome middle, and balanced throughout the range.
This Taylor is the easiest guitar to play that I have ever had. It feels kinda like playing an electric. Good smooth action, perfect intonation all the way up as high as you can get. I have never had a guitar with a cutaway and this has opened up a whole new world for me and acoustic guitars.
This guitar is just a pleasure to play. After a couple of days I realized that the Taylor had made a twice as good of a guitar player!

I can't think of anything that I don't like about this guitar. I thought that it would be nice if it had a little more bottom end, but after having it a few months now, it's really fine.
I started noticing a nagging buzz coming from different strings at different times and it was starting to really bum me out, but then I figured out that it was the pickup leads just laying in the wrong place and all it would need was a little shake to make it go away.

Taylors are amazingly well crafted. It's hard to believe that they are a production guitar. The abalone inlay on the fingerboard and rosette is incedibly beautiful. It's truly a work of art!

I have had Martins, Gibsons, and Guilds, but this is by and large the best sounding, easiest playing guitar I have had yet. Get a Taylor
