Taylor 214ce Ovangkol Steel String Guitar Natural

Taylor 214ce Ovangkol Steel String Guitar Natural

The Taylor 214ce is super comfortable smaller grand concert body size guitar featuring a Sitka spruce top and Ovangkol sides and back. The smaller body size and curvy waist on this guitar works really well for players looking for a more compact instrument and it also helps to reduce playing fatigue when in a seated position. The new V class bracing from Taylor helps to boost the volume and sustain which is really beneficial on a smaller guitar.

Gibson Custom CS356 Thinline Faded Cherry, 2008

Gibson Custom CS356 Thinline Faded Cherry, 2008

The Gibson Custom CS356 was the top level version of the Gibson Custom CS336, and was built from 2002 to 2008. Like the CS-336, it was based on a carved Solid Figured Maple top on a chambered single-piece block of Mahogany, routed out to provide the sides, back, center block and tone chambers. Based on its 5-digit serial number with an 8 as its first digit, this example dates to 2008 and as such would be one of the last built.  It has very little wear,  and is in great condition with only a few minor bumps.

Gibson CS336 Thinline Compact Archtop Faded Cherry, 2004

Gibson CS336 Thinline Compact Archtop Faded Cherry, 2004

Introduced in late 2001 and built until 2010, the Gibson CS336 is based on a scaled-down ES-335, but there are some significant differences. The body blends a carved, two piece solid Maple top with a solid piece of Mahogany, shaped and routed to provide the inner resonant chambers and the solid center block. In the ES-335 design, the top, sides and back are built traditionally using Maple laminate, with a solid Maple center block added. On this model, the bound fingerboard is Indian Rosewood with dot position markers.
