Greetings from Flowery Branch, Ga
« on: December 11, 2017, 07:09:59 PM »
 Long time player looking for my first Taylor. Thinking it may be a 614ce
 Own Martins ( UMGF member ) Gibsons, Sigmas, and an Ovation I bought
 new way back in 1974 ( my first “good” guitar )
 Look forward to adding a Taylor to the herd in the near future

Hi Ed, welcome to the forum.
May those who love us, love us. And those who don't love us, May God turn their hearts;
And if He doesn't turn their hearts, May He turn their ankles, So we will know them by their limping.

Welcome, Ed. A 614 will provide a nice contrasting alternative to a mahogany or rosewood Martin. Have fun with it!

Hi Ed! Good to have another Georgian among us. I really like the Taylor 600s, but suggest you take your time in selecting just the right model to compliment your current lineup. A 614 would be a nice contrast to your Martins and Gibsons, and would give you something special to enjoy in case the snow you had over the weekend decides to return. (Yes, folks, we do get snow occasionally in Georgia, though we never wait for an actual flake before panicking and heading out to get bread and milk. We don't know why, but I think it is required!)

Welcome to the forum Ed(EFG).  The 614ce could be a nice addition to your line up.  Hope it works out for you.
May those who love us, love us. And those who don't love us, May God turn their hearts;
And if He doesn't turn their hearts, May He turn their ankles, So we will know them by their limping.

Thanks Cotten
I plan on testing a few before I pull the trigger. I am leaning towards a newer non cutaway
IMHO a non cutaway gives a fuller sound and I don’t play way up the neck   That being said
I hope to be able to A/B both.
And yes when it snows in Georgia everyone freaks out. I’m originally from NY which makes
it even more comical.
