I owned an original 414ce ovangkol model when they were first released. This newest version with the V-bracing and rosewood back and sides sounds so much better. Due to the rosewood construction there is a much wider range of tone...more high and low frequency response. And the V-braced top allows the guitar to resonate forever. I'm definitely glad my isolation due to the pandemic restrictions drove me to get back to my interest in learning to play again, and thank you Taylor for continuing to make beautiful looking and playing guitars.
