I've owned 5 Taylors. '97 - 815 c, '96 Cindy, 2 baby's, and an early issue K-14. I'm in year 2. It's my go to. Still own the 1st 2.. The K-14 is freekin' comfortable, and I love the way the V bracing prevents the vibration of the instrument from competing with the vibration of the vocals.. Pure genius...!
