Well, it’s actually a tie. I finished the neck reset and set-up on my 2010 Taylor 814CE-LTD Sat. afternoon. This guitar has a 24-7/8" scale and a 12fret slotted headstock. The sound is amazing. With Taylor’s CV bracing and the 12 fret neck, the sound is really close to my 2004 710-L9 short scale Brazilian/Adirondack dreadnaught.The action ended up about .085" @ 12 E. I was suprised at the low growl from this grand auditorium. Played it plugged up Sat. night and the upright bass player told me twice that I was walking on her line. We practiced some Sun. afternoon and it hung in there w/Scott’s HD-28, and is much easier to play. Blew me away.
So, I now have 5, 25.5" scale Taylors for sale or trade. I’m looking for a short scale mahogany.
If anyone’s interested, hit me up and I’ll get a list w/pics and prices to you.
