❌SOLD❌  Taylor 514ce Cedar and Mahogany Steel String, 2016

The Taylor 514ce Cedar and Mahogany steel string guitar has been in Taylor’s line since its introduction in 1998.  Using a Grand Auditorium body,  its pairing of a Western Red Cedar top with Central American Mahogany make it a great choice for fingerstylists. Red Cedar is used on many classical guitars due to its warmth and responsiveness to the dynamic nuances of fingerstyle playing, and is tonally balanced by the articulation, sparkle and midrange presence of the Mahogany sides and back.   With playing,  Cedar also develops its voice fairly quickly compared to Spruce.

❌SOLD❌ Pedro de Miguel Flamenco Negra Guitar, 2005

❌SOLD❌  Pedro de Miguel Flamenco Negra Guitar,  2005

Here we have a Pedro de Miguel Flamenco Negra guitar,  built in Madrid during 2005.  The key difference between Flamenco Negra and Classical guitars, aside from the use of Rosewood instead of Cypress for the back and sides –  is largely geometry.  The neck set on a Flamenco guitar is a bit higher, allowing for low action and the attendant rattle that’s part of the Flamenco sound.  Flamenco Negra guitars are becoming more common and often found in the ‘World Music’ context.
