Hello everyone and welcome to another Heartbreaker Guitars Taylor Tuesday blog post! Today is a really special edition, as we have some really exciting news! We have received our first shipment of V-Class bracing into the shop at Heartbreaker! We have been anticipating their arrival for awhile now, and we are really excited to add them to the collection.
We did a whole blog on the V-Class bracing, explaining what it is and why it changes the game which you can find here! Today we are going to be focusing on the two guitars specifically that we just got in that feature the V-Class bracing! That being an 814ce DLX and a 914ce.
The 900 series is the luxury class of the Taylor lineup, and the 14 model is the Grand Auditorium style that is famous for its tonal power and versatility. Those two pieces combine in this instrument, and, being powered by the addition of V-Class bracing, is an absolute power house. It's hard to find something not to love about this guitar from the looks, to the tone; It is the absolute complete package.
This 914ce V-Class we have for sale has a Sitka Spruce top and a gorgeous selection of Indian Rosewood for the back and sides. This guitar definitely has a distinctly Rosewood tone, and is incredibly powerful. The appointments feature a lot of Pau, Koa, and Pearl, with West African Ebony for the bridge and peghead. This guitar just oozes class! It's also fully loaded up with an ES2 electronics system. It also has a nice comfortable bevel.
This guitar is a really similar model to the 914ce, but without a few of the appointments. It's also a 14 model, it's also Indian Rosewood on the back and sides, and it's also a Sitka Spruce top. Plus it has the V-Class Bracing powering its tone. It still has the ES2 and a soundbox bevel. It's a very similar guitar, just without some of the bling, so if you're looking for a bit of a value deal, this guitar also comes in at almost $1000 less.
