Which Taylor series is best suited for flatpicking?

Comment by Don McClellan on September 23, 2013 at 7:37am

Hi Mike, I agree with Daniel Cooper, After a whole lot of research and probably way too much in store auditions of several acoustic amps I finally decided that the Fishman Artist was the one for me and my 816ce. It's sound is about as clean as it gets and it has a ton effects should you want to change things up. If you email  tell him Don McClellan suggested you contact him for more information and pricing on the Fishman Artist, he's a great guy and extremely knowledgeable. Hope this helps.

Hey Mike, Fishman has a big history with acoustic guitars. They make a nice selection of acoustic amps. You might start looking there.

Might also check one of these out for your new Taylor while your at it. We build them for Taylor.

Not that I need an amp for my new Taylor, but I know that it's inevitable that I'll be getting one sometime.  What do you guys recommend?

Thank you!  It's almost too pretty to play!  And mine has the Englemann Spruce top with the rosewood back & sides.  It has plenty of snap to it, but I was torn between the cedar top and spruce.  It's so comfortable to play, that's for sure.

Congratulations!! I got a 714 ce a few months ago, it has a red cedar top and a rosewood back and sides. Is yours the same??? It is mellower than I anticipated but the more I play it the more I have come to love the sound. I look forward to hearing what you think as you play it more.

Just took a big leap and bought a Taylor 714ce this weekend.  So beautiful...and it sounds so sweet.  I love it.

I may buy a Taylor 714ce or 716ce tonight.  I have tried the 714 before and love it but the 716 is almost the same and I read some great things about it. Finally found a store that bad BOTH so I can test them against each other. :-)  The 714 sounds amazing.

I own a Taylor 810-bce and also an 814-ce.  I also have a Kentucky mandolin. I have owned Taylor Minis, a couple 200 series, and a 400 series.  I sold them, or traded them, to upgrade to my 810 and 814.  I have played ONLY Taylor guitars for 12 years now.  A devoted fan for sure.

Hello, my name is Mike and I'm new to the group. I had purchased a new Martin DSR-GC and had no problems with it, but then I saw a good deal on a Taylor DN3 on the local craigslist, and decided to return the Martin and get the Taylor.  I couldn't be happier with it. I tend to play electric more than acoustic, but I'm seriously considering purchasing a higher-end Taylor within the next year or two. I look forward to getting to know you guys and learning lots from you!
