This 2019 Taylor Custom 414ce is in excellent (almost unplayed) condition showing no signs of play wear throughout. The neck profile of this instrument is that of a typical Taylor neck carve which is a comfortable soft C shape with a 1 3/4 inch nut width. The frets show no signs of play wear and have a lifetime of use left in them. This Taylor has been professionally set up and plays effortlessly up and down the fingerboard. This is a particularly good sounding example of a Taylor Grand Auditorium guitar and is a little dryer and rounder than a lot of other Taylors that I have played and has plenty of volume and character. The ES2 pickup system is also a huge improvement from the original Taylor Expression System, in my opinion, and sounds great plugged in making this guitar perfect for live situations. The Shaded Edgeburst finish is exceptionally attractive and looks great paired with the engraved Victorian inlays. This is an overall dynamite offering from the Taylor guitar company. A gem of a guitar shipped out safely and promptly from our little shop here in Clarksville, Tennessee, to your front door.
