2008 Taylor 714ce-LTD

Taylor’s 2008 Fall Limited 714ce features Koa back and sides, a top of Western Red cedar, koa-bound ebony fingerboard with green abalone dot inlays, an abalone pearl rosette, koa bindings and multi-layered purflings. It’s a beautiful guitar, with tastefully reserved accents and an earthen color palette. X braced with a long scale, this guitar has an open and warm voice that’s engaging and lovely. It’s a wonderful fingerstyle guitar with excellent response to a lighter touch.

The guitar is in excellent condition and without cracks or repairs. There are a few minor dings here and there as well as a bit of fretwear in the first few frets, but no significant flaws to report on. Set up is excellent, with an action of 5-6 64th and a perfect neck angle. Standard Taylor neck carve, with 1-3/4” nut, 2-3/16” string spacing at the saddle and 25.5” scale.

With original hardshell case
