John Frusciante’s Taylor 314ceaccess_time First seen circa 2002
According to a June 2003 interview published in Guitarist Magazine, all the acoustic guitars used on By the Way album were Taylors, borrowed from the album producer, Rick Rubin. Allegedly, Rubin pursued John to use Taylors instead of Martins on the album, although John himself preferred the latter.
The only Taylor that John was actually seen playing was a model 314ce – which he used on rare ocassions at the beginning of the By the Way tour. One such occasion was on the Jonathan Ross Show, on May 31, 2002.
