514 (2014)
Price: $2,718 US MSRP / Series: 500
514 (2014)

Mahogany yields its inspiring tone readily, with a strong, breathy midrange and a fundamental focus. A cedar top imparts extra warmth to complement that voice and slightly lowers the overall volume ceiling compared to a denser spruce or mahogany top. The versatile Grand Auditorium 514 is a great option for fingerpickers and light-to-medium strummers for its blend of warmth and compression. The neo-vintage appointment package includes an grained ivoroid rosette, grained ivoroid binding, and a Century fretboard inlay.
