Very interested in the entry level 114 non c, non e model, to pair with a Tonewood amp, and select my own pickup system in. However, kind of glad I didn't. Even though the above is a laminate back/sides, caring for the guitars I have is a pita already, and I can adjust one of my Martins to a tonewood, and pickups. The key is I wanted a non-gloss satin finish for percussion, and no extruding knobs and cheap ass pickup system in it. Will probably mod what I have, as it's not really rare stuff, and look for an entry 12 string, likely a taylor, next year or so.
