2002 Taylor 814-CE-LTD w/ Coco Bolo back & sides Guitar - Sold

Sold

     Near Mint. No sign of previous ownership except strap button correctly installed in side of neck heel.
     Most of these 814CE models are made with Indian Rosewood, some with Walnut, and some in Brazilian Rosewood or Coco Bolo. This one has strikingly beautiful 3-pc Coco Bolo back and Coco Bolo sides. Select Sitka Spruce top. Ebony fingerboard and bridge. Gold Grover Rotomatic tuners. Multiple wood bindings around top edge, with solid wood outer bindings around top and back edges, fingerboard and peghead. I am not sure of the exact species of wood used in the outer bindings, but I can say that it is very highly "flamed" and just has a very nice look to it.
     Abalone soundhole rosette with multiple wood outside the abalone. Stylized diamond inlays in fingerboard.
     I have long been a fan of Coco Bolo guitars in general, and this guitar reinforces that opinion. This is a truly great guitar. It has a very big voice with lots of tonal expression and power. No kidding... anyone who enjoys a great sounding, lively, powerful guitar will have a fine time with this one. It flatpicks well, but fingerpicks like a dream, with a quick, sure attack on all strings.
