Tried and TrueI purchased my 614 in '96. I am female singer song writer and needed something bright with a bass response that would get out of the way quickly leaving room for female vocals. This guitar does it all. Acoustically, it sounds just as beautiful as when plugged in. It has the older Fishman Prefix and I have worn out the pick up plug twice. The recording studios prefer it. I have put this thru many many amps thru the years and never got a sound I didn't like. I play finger style and Percussive and it handles both VERY well.

Love This Guitar!I have been playing for over 50 years. I have owned/played about everything out there. This is the guitar I just can't put down. It has the tone and playability I was looking for. I must say, it definitely likes Nanowweb strings. I have tried several brands of strings and keep coming back to the Nanowebs. The guitar is superb for both solo fingerstyle and vocal accompaniment. It is bright but in a good way. The Expression System is what it is - very good but less than perfect. The ES "works" perfectly. It is great in a band setting - not so much for solo work. I actually prefer the older Fishman Prefix system for solo stuff. Over all I couldn't be happier. By the way - this guitar is absolutely beautiful!

Sweet Mother of ToneThis is one amazing outstanding guitar. I don't give reviews often and I don't usually give 5 stars when I do, but this one just begs for it. The guitar is pure ear and eye candy. The tone is just beautiful. It is very clear and articulate, punchy, not overly bright for maple and has a wonderful warmth like being wrapped in a cozy blanket! The tobacco burst finish is a thing of beauty. The grain of the spruce and the flame of the maple are stunning. I cannot find a flaw with this guitar. Mine came with a 3 pc back and it looks amazing. The neck plays like butter...like every taylor I have ever played. The tuners are tight and stable. I have nothing to complain about this guitar. Well worth the price. It is an acoustic gem. I'm just stunned by the beauty of the tone. The guitar just begs to be played. It handles light strumming gorgeously and you can dig in pretty well. The harder you play the brighter the tone. Finger picking just releases the sweetest tones. You will not be dissapointed with this one.
