    Undoubtedly, this is the VERY BEST Nylon string guitar I've EVER played! Even when using a light-touch picking with the fingers, the RICH sound that emanates from this guitar thrills me to the bone!
    I, myself, have been playing it mostly without the amp, however, with the amp, I have gotten the same great sound, only louder, with a very accurate reproduction of the unplugged sound. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND this guitar for anyone who is on the prowl for a TOP QUALITY Nylon string guitar!

    I must, as I've mentioned in all of my Sweetwater purchase reviews, give the HIGHEST PRAISE possible to my Sales Engineer, MIKE SOPER! There isn't ANYTHING that this great guy wouldn't do for you to provide you with the guitar, amp, etc., that will best suit your needs! His incredible knowledge
    of Sweetwater's products never ceases to amaze me! But wait....there's more! He will spend as much time with you on the phone that you need for you to fully understand what you'll be getting & how it works! Mike is also the MOST PATIENT & FRIENDLY guy you'll ever work with! I am speaking from much experience, given my own personal business relarionship with Mike since 2014---as I have bought many different types of guitars, etc., from Mike between then and now. Besides all of the above info. that I've given you, Mike is TRULY CONCERNED about "service AFTER the sale", which has practically become an extinct species among so many guitar salesmen outside the sacred walls of Sweetwater, but you need not worry about MIKE SOPER, nor any of the other people at Sweetwater, for that matter! Sweetwater practices "old-time" morals & ethics, which have, unfortunately, vanished from most business establishments. As for me, I wouldn't even think of buying my guitars, accessories, etc. from anywhere but Sweetwater! THANKS AGAIN, Mike, along with the rest of the Sweetwater staff, & the INCREDIBLE Guitar Tech & Repair Department! You are ALL CHAMPS!

    First Taylor

    I received my Taylor 414ce-nr a few weeks back. I've owned many guitars over the years and I'm very familiar with lots of brands. I have to say that Taylor lives up to their reputation. They do try to give the most bang for the buck. (Although this guitar is in the upper price range.) On inspection of my new guitar, I was very pleased with the craftsmanship and the quality of this guitar. The tone and play-ability has been all that I expected. The spruce top with rosewood back and sides (both solid hardwood) gives a rich and slightly mellow tone with the nylon strings. I play early 20th century blues and it's just the sound I was looking for. The 14th body fret and cutaway makes it easy to play the upper registers. For a brighter tone I would suggest a steel string version. I would give 5 Stars had it not been for the plastic neck and body binding. I don't feel it hurts the tone, I just think for the price Taylor could offer better (personal opinion).
    I would recommend this guitar for someone looking for a solid wood instrument.
    ((Very Pleased) and Sweetwater did a great job getting it to me quickly).
