neener....neener....neener (or however you spell it!)....I'm going to Taylorstock! HAHAHAHA! :klol: :kgrin: :ktongue:

Yes, it is a gathering that the TGF will be having at the Taylor factory. It's going to kick some (you know what :kwink: ).

Donny, if you want some more information there is tons on the TGF in the Taylorstock part of the forum. If you have any other questions just email me, IM me, or send me a private message and I'll answer your questions. I won't do it on here because it's not related to the CGR and I don't want to announce it to the entire world.

neener....neener....neener! :kroll:

Jennifer :kduh:

P.S. Aaron...perhaps something will happen where your sister's wedding will be postponed a week. You never know. I've seen it happen. :klol:

you get flame when you quarter saw the wood (provided the wood is figured...it's all in the genetics of the tree)

to get quilted, you saw it like planks...

because the way its sawn, quilted wood aren't as stable as quarter sawn wood. That's why most quilted electrics are veneared

this makes the guitar cheeper and more stable as plank sawn wood will bend if the humidity fluctuates

pretty much all quality guitar tops are quartersawn

i don't think there's any major tone difference...but wood even cut from the same log can sound different from one piece to another so it's hard to tell.

The stability issue is real though.

I've found it very hard to find 2 guitars that sound alike.....so I also don't know if I could safely say that it is the flame or quilt that determines the sound.....could be though, I'm not sure

I need some advice. I want a 614ce, bad. But I have never played one. A friend of mine said that the 614ce is a finger-style guitar, with the strings set low to the fretboard. His opinion was that if you were to start strumming heavily on a 614ce it would be prone to ringing. I like to strum hard at times. What do you guys think?

I've got a 614ce and I've never had a problem with strumming. A 615ce or a 610ce would probably be better for strumming hard but the 614ce is kind of a "jack of all trades." The x14 guitars are really versatile. Good for everything but not really good for any one thing.

You can set it however you want. Taylor doesn't set the action low from the factory though. They set it just it up the same way they do all their guitars.

it's generally a bad idea to use the truss rod to set the action.

The job of the truss rod is to keep the neck straight, that's it.

if you want to change the action and your neck is straight already, mess around with the nut and saddle. DON"T TOUCH THE TRUSS ROD! you'll end up wrecking your neck


about the 614ce...why would you want one so bad if you've never tried it and know how it feels and sound?
just curious.

He probably heard good things about it. Taylor is consistant if nothing else.
