Crafted with top-tier tonewoods and master-level detailing, the Builder's Edition 914ce raises the bar for our family of refined, player-focused acoustic guitars. This Grand Auditorium features back and sides of solid Honduran rosewood, a dense, hard wood that yields stunning harmonic texture with warm lows, piano-like trebles and a smooth attack. We've selected sinker redwood for the top, a wood sourced from old-growth logs submerged in Northern California riverbeds. Redwood's warmth and touch sensitivity are comparable to cedar, but with a higher volume ceiling and an enhanced dynamic range. With our V-Class bracing inside, the result is a high-fidelity sound complemented by lush overtones and remarkable pitch precision. Comfort-enhancing features include a beveled armrest and cutaway, chamfered body edges, and a smooth Curve Wing bridge, yielding a truly seamless feel. The Builder's Edition 914ce is artfully detailed with Hawaiian koa purfling, paua edge trim, an ebony backstrap, Gotoh 510 tuners in antique gold, Belle Fleur inlays in paua and mother-of-pearl, and a gorgeous Kona edgeburst for the back and sides with a full-body gloss finish.
