The Taylor Guitars 214ce LTD Black Limba was only available to order at the 2020 Winter NAMM Show and we are excited to see it! Black Limba, also known as Korina, earned notoriety in the late 1950's, being used on early Gibson Explorer's and Flying V's. This is a rare tone wood, loved for it's tonal properties and Ooh and Ahh'ed over due to it's looks. This is the 1st time I can recall seeing and acoustic with back and sides made of Korina. If you are looking for something new and cool, this Limited Edition from Taylor is worth a strum!
The Grand Auditorium Body (signified by the 14 in the model name) provides a very comfortable shape for many players. It's a balanced sounding shape, less boomy than a dread and less boxy than smaller guitars. Sort of that perfect middle ground. When combined with Korina, which lands somewhere in the realm Koa and Mahogany, you get a perfectly focused and articulate sound, perfect for the singer looking for an instrument to support their voice.
