Taylor has just officially announced the arrival of their latest model in the 200 series.
After previous special editions of koa and rosewood deluxe models, the 214ce QM has laminated quilted maple for back and sides. Other premium appointments include diamond markers, white body binding, high gloss finish and wood truss rod cover.
The Expression System 2 comes standard here, as with most Taylor guitars. This also comes with a hardshell case as opposed to standard 200 series that come with hard bags.
The 214 QM has interesting aesthetics due to the matching maple neck. Quite special compared to the more usual mahogany/sapele necks found in lower end Taylors. Guitarbear reckons the maple may provide some tonal differences too.
