V-ClaSS: how muCh?
Following on from the quartet of £5k-plus original launch models, which included the 914ce (£6,239) and the PS14ce (£9,479), the good news is you can now experience V-Class braced GAs from £2,219 with the long-standing and well-loved spruce/ sapele 314ce. The shaded edgeburst mahogany/Tasmanian blackwood 324ce costs £2,399. Next up is the spruce/ African ovangkol 414ce (£2,639); the spruce/rosewood 414ce-R is £2,855.
The514ce (£3,119) uses a finger style friendly Western red cedar top with mahogany back/sides; the 524ce (£3,239) is all-mahogany. Price-wise, we then jump to our 614ce models – the 614ce (£4,019) uses a torrefied spruce top with maple back/sides, and the 614ce Builder’s Edition (£4,199) version (which offers an awful lot, even at this money), adds a beveled armrest, ‘refined’ cutaway and ‘silent’ satin finish. At the same price comes the Sitka spruce/rosewood 814ce; the DLX version, at £4,799, adds a rosewood armrest and Gotoh 510 tuners.
