Default Full spec for (2005) Taylor 214?

Where can I find the full specification for 2005 Taylor 214? There seems to be the spec only for the new 214 on Taylor web site but the new model and the 2005 model are different.

Thanks.

Default Email or call Taylor Customer Service - Information Services

I recently did regarding my 2006 model 814 and they sent me a 2006 catalog.
Good luck,

The specs are the same except for:

Solid wood Sapele back & sides on the '05 model vs. Rosewood laminate for '07. The new model also comes standard with a hard case - not sure if the '05 did.

also, the 05 has an ebony fretboard & bridge, the 07 is eirw
(although i have a 07 110e that has a black fretboard
& as far as i know, Taylor does not stain rosewood)

white binding with black purfling on the body & a gloss top on the 07,
more extensive use of grain filler & the "arch" in the back is almost invisible -
the 05 has black binding (no purfling) on the body & a satin finish top

some of the earlier 214 had an ebony headstock overlay, whereas now
they are rosewood (07 100 series also) - the 200 series comes with a
"flat-top" lid hardshell case (black with chrome hardware)
