Hey Pali,
We met with Casey Kamaka at NAMM. As a result of our conversation, we are working on a smaller Ukulele, Mandolin, Violin specific unit to release in the very near future, and a larger one for Chello.
I lived on Oahu and Maui for 11 years. Seeing those guys at NAMM made me homesick...D

Pali, Go to the website, and place your order to reserve one.. We are getting slammed since NAMM. best regards, DC

Antonio, I also play a 314CE as my main guitar. REally enjoy the guitar. Appreciate the most the balance of the sound across the full range and the clean sound.

agreed Mike.. their service guys and gals are the best I've ever seen/needed to work with. Also, if you have the time, do take the Taylor Guitar factory tour.. very cool indeed!

Just a note to people with Taylor problems. Send your guitar to the factory for repairs. You will be taken care of properly. I have had only a tiny issue but they are renowned for their customer service! I was indeed impressed in a big way. Also, I can highly recommend the touring workshops they put on in local guitar stores. Bring your guitar and they will address small issues on the spot!

Hi friends,

I'm a proud owner of a Taylor 314CE.
A great instrument.
When I purchased it I was looking for a 514CE but the only one that arrived to the store was sold. A friend told me to try this one, I'm I'm glad I purchased it.
Would like to know if some of you have the same model and your opinions about it.

Aloha all, and howdy! new to the AG forums, Taylor guy too (play the DDSM Doyle Dykes model)...

in regards to the pickup.. yeah, all the early Taylors had that problem. I was told it was a glue issue in the pickup housing that came undone either due to temperature and/or altitude (yeah, altitude)... was told that by a former Taylor repair rep. Taylor will replace and upgrade to the 9volt version-so that's cool.. but at one point I had 8 different Taylors, all first series, all 8 went back.

I am new to this group and have owned several Taylors. My son came over yesterday with a lightly used 214 he got on ebay. Wow, what a fine acoustic instrument! I don't believe there is any competition in this price range.

This guitar will definitely take him from beginner well into itermediate / advanced level. I have attached a picture of 2 of my favorites.
