Gino Guitars Guitars is pleased to present the Taylor 900 series! The natural top is stunning, and the Indian rosewood back and sides are truly out-of-this-world, but let's not overlook the tiny details that make them true heartbreakers. The koa trim around the fretboard, the paua rosette with with ebony and koa purfling, and the stylish abalone and pearl ascension inlays are all small touches that make this guitar a truly elegant work of art. The beveled armrest only adds to the sophisticated aesthetic, and it has significant ergonomic benefits, too--cramped right arms after long practice sessions are thing of the past! Andy Powers has done a bang-up job redesigning Taylor's bracing system to give these guitars exceptional balance, clarity, and fullness, too (more on this in a second!). When you add the beautiful bell-like response of the rosewood back and sides into the equation, you get a touch-sensitive guitar that somehow manages to sound full and rich even if you barely touch the strings. Of course, the Taylor ES-2 electronics ensure that all of this nuance and detail will come through crystal clear should you ever decide to show this beauty off to a live audience. We all flipped our lids over these guitars when they came in, and we are so excited to share the 914ce with our exceptional customers.

Now, this modern classic has been given yet another upgrade: Taylor's revolutionary V-Class bracing! V-Class bracing solves a major problem with acoustic guitar design. Typically, guitar builders must make a choice between sustain and volume. More flexible wood leads to greater volume, while stiffer planks result in greater sustain. Reconciling these two opposing truths to make a guitar that sustains AND projects has been the fundamental quandary of acoustic guitar construction for most of the history of lutherie. Now, we no longer have to trade one for the other thanks to V-Class bracing!

V-Class bracing controls the way the top flexes in order to make the vibrations "rock" back and forth in across the top in a more orderly manner. By controlling the way the top flexes, the bracing allows the guitar to sing loud and proud with a focused yet sonorous voice. The bracing also makes the center of the top more rigid, which keeps the strings vibrating longer, which gives you a ridiculous amount of sustain. So, players are able to have their cake and eat it, too! You get endless, Spinal Tap-worthy sustain and serious volume in the same guitar--a truly rare feat!

We are so proud to showcase these magnificent acoustics for our exceptional customers, and we hope you find their recent refinements as inspiring as we do!
