Default What Artist Plays What Taylor?

I noticed the long list of artists who use Taylor guitars, but was wondering (just out of curiosity) if anyone out there knows "who's playing what?"

Norah Jones guitarist: 710
Matchbox Twenty: 514 on If You're Gone, I believe they have a couple of other Taylors
Jason Mraz: 614, just upgraded to 914
Dixie Chicks: Natalie Maines used to play a 914 with cindy, not sure if she's upgraded (upgraded a 914?!?) since then, but I'm sure she has

I think Jewel plays a 914 with Cindy inlay and of course she plays the JKSM.

Last night, I was watching a videotaped segmnent of the San Diego Music Awards, and Jason Mraz was one of the performers. I can't believe this guy's been around San Diego and I haven't seen him yet.

At the risk of ruffling feathers, I think he makes Dave Matthews look like a rookie...

Does she even use the JKSM? I've never seen her actually playing it. Every time I see her on TV she's using a 914.

She's been using a Gibson J-200 and J-185EC lately I believe. I haven't seen her use a Taylor in a few months.

Cool

Vince Gill and Amy Grant both play 912ce,s.
Clint Black plays his signature model which is a fancied up 912, plus a bunch of other Taylors in his band.
Kathy Mattea plays her "Blackie", a black 614C with cool inlays.
Billy Dean has two K22's.
Suzy Boggus plays a 514ce.
John Berry plays a 714ce.
Carolyn Dawn Johnson plays a black 614ce and either a 514ce or a 714ce.
Alan Jackson's band....spotted a Liberty edition, but I know there was another model when I saw him before that. It was hard to tell through the binoculars.

These are the Taylors I've spotted when I've seen these country singers in concert or on tv. I sure wish they would indicate what guitars people play in the credits or something. Drives me nuts trying to read headstocks. I've learned some of them, but even then I'd like to know models. My family thinks I'm weird about it. I think it's just curiousity.

MAKE it a GREAT day!!!

John Denver played (!) a Taylor in his latter years. Koa K22 I believe.

Sad that he's no longer w/us.

Alas, he has changed...he plays the W65 still, but he rarely pulls out the 714 anymore and instead has several 914c's (one 2000 model, one 2002 model, and one 2000 model with a florentine cutaway, I think)

I believe Alannis Morissette has an old 910

Madonna plays a Taylor, but I forget which one

Dave also plays a custom Taylor baritone, one of his war-torn 714's tuned to B for You Never Know, and of course the aforementioned 914's. I believe these are all just touring models (he says Taylors are built to be rugged) and leaves his sig Martin model for the studio.
