Taylor Empire Select 714ce Rosewood AA/Sinker Redwood, Ebony Fingerboard, Natural
~Guitar pictured is the actual guitar that you will receive~
This Taylor Empire Select 714ce combines the complex tones of Sinker Redwood with the warmth and bottom-end that East Indian Rosewood is known for.
Sinker Redwood soundboards are sliced from huge old-growth redwood logs reclaimed from the depths of Northern California rivers, where they’ve lain in many cases for more than a century. These tops provide some of the most dynamic and complex tones in guitar making today. Players can heavily influence the response of the top through their individual playing style and attack. Super round tones and incredible sparkle are best enjoyed with a medium/light attack. Heavy strummers won’t get the volume of spruce tops but for all other styles, Redwood delivers gorgeous complex tones. Think Cedar on steroids.
AA Rosewood is the straightest and highest quality Rosewood. As a back and sides, it offers some of the most classic tones in modern music history. Players will immediately notice the big bottom-end, sparkling top end and scooped mids. The complex overtones add to the demand and mystique of Rosewood. Singer/songwriters tend to love rosewood back and sides due to the scooped mids–allowing their voice to naturally fill this space.
We love this tonewood combination for players who are seeking intricate overtones, incredible response and the bottom-end of rosewood.
