Sample text

So the question is, has Taylor done anything radical with the redesigned 500 Series, or are we essentially reviewing a redesigned soundhole rosette and little else? Well, there are a few cosmetic refinements – but it turns out that the big story with the series’ reboot is actually on the inside, with the series now boasting an improved bracing design. Let’s shine a light and take a look. If you’re not familiar with the 514ce, the first thing you should know is that Taylor itself has designed the guitar to appeal to singersongwriters in particular.

They are then assembled in China and shipped to the UK for quality control, with final set-up and inspection taking no fewer than four hours on each mandolin before it is offered for sale. First, let’s take a general look at the three instruments. They arrived in smart, imitation crocodile skin hard cases with a couple of substantial gold catches and a broad, comfortable handle. I was a little surprised that all three were way below concert pitch, but they slid up to the mark easily courtesy of some smooth, if a little chunky, unbranded machine heads.

The guitar’s set-up is as good as you’ll find. Straight out of the box, the action is bang-on and the fit and finish of the fretwork makes for joyous and relaxed note production. In terms of its output, the all-solid walnut offers a dry, plummy, deep timbre. The lower mid-range is strong yet well-balanced, so much so that the use of a thumb-pick is unwarranted for fingerstyle duties. Though it performs well with a pick in hand, strumming this guitar might be considered as missing the point; the dynamics and tonal separation on offer here is so well-suited to fingerstyle playing that giving it a thrashing with a pick feels disrespectful.
