Taylor: 314(Item ID: 314 Serial#: 1101118012)
Grand Auditorium with Solid Spruce Top and Solid Sapele Back and Sides.
From the Taylor website:
"The 314 responds well to a wide range of playing styles thanks to Taylor’s medium-size Grand Auditorium body. While the bigger Dreadnought was traditionally considered a flatpicker’s guitar and the smaller Grand Concert catered to fingerstylists, the GA was designed to deliver on both fronts. The shape produces an original acoustic voice that is big enough to handle medium-strength picking and strumming, yet with impressive balance across the tonal spectrum - especially in the midrange - producing clear, well-defined notes that suit both strumming and fingerstyle playing.
The 314 features back and sides made with Sapele which shares mahogany’s lively tonal response and, together with a Sitka spruce top, the sound rings out with a brightness and clarity that give these guitars a definitive Taylor voice. Black binding flanks sapele’s ribbon-like grain, with Italian acrylic dot fretboard inlays adding a clean touch."
