Capitalizing on the opportunity to play with new tonewood combinations for our limited edition guitars, this 2019 714ce LTD features a unique combination of Indian rosewood back and sides with a sinker redwood top. Indian rosewood is an all-star tonewood with a vibrant'sonic personality that ranges from warm and responsive in the bass range to rich and shimmery on the treble end, with a scooped midrange that makes it an ideal wood choice for guitar'sts who sing while they play. Sinker redwood, though, might be even more alluring?sourced from sunk logs found in California riverbeds, this tonewood takes on a gorgeous striped red hue and a tone profile with serious attitude, often described as cedar on steroids. You?ll find much of cedar's warmth and soft-touch response here, plus the added power and headroom that'sinker redwood brings. This model is also outfitted with V-Class bracing for enhanced volume and sustain, which also helps pull out more of rosewood?s natural overtonal complexity. Artfully detailed with abalone inlays and koa body binding, this limited edition 714ce is truly a rare find, and includes ES2 electronics and a har'shell case.
