Taylor guitars has to be a few best acoustic guitar manufacturer on the planet. They have such a variety in range of instruments to match whatever players style and budget maybe. This is the 814 Taylor guitar which has a load of tone and feel for the player to use. I really like the 814 series overall because it has a great sound and tone for an open airy voicing. Many other models will have different wood types which gives the acoustic guitar of variety of different times so I suggest playing several different tailors to really get the type of feeling tone and projection that you want from an acoustic instrument. If I had the money and didn't care what the cost was then this one ultimately be the acoustic for me. It has the right touch and feel and most importantly the right sound for me.

The models that I really like the Taylor guitars have to be the 400 series and the 600 series and the 800 series. I also really like the koa guitars as well. The 814 is the height in my opinion of a Taylor series guitars. I'm not a fan of the 900 series because it feels a little stiff and sterile to me but the 800 has a nice warm time is very forgiving attack and feel of the neck. They fit right in with any style of music in a really project very well and open room being plugged into an amplifier.
You can find this seat of Taylor guitars for right around $3000. That's a pretty expensive price for acoustic guitar but this is certainly a professionals acoustic guitar. If you saved up money for long period of time and this would be to go to guitar from me or anyone looking for a professional acoustic instrument. These are an expensive acoustic but it is not something a learning guitarist is going to buy. So if I had the money this would be the best guitar for me personally. In my opinion it is way better than the 900 series from Taylor.
