Taylor 510e Dreadnought Electro Acoustic Guitar (2016) #1101286071

The Taylor 510e Dreadnought Electro Acoustic Guitar combines the classic benefits of a dreadnought guitar with some improved and comfortable features to enhance the playing experience. The dreadnought body shape produces a balanced tone suited to accompanying vocal performances, while its slightly shorter scale length makes it comfortable and easy to use. The lutz spruce top with mahogany back and sides produces a tone that accentuates the highs, but also pushes the low end to make a united, wholesome sound. The lutz spruce tonewood is natural occurring hybrid of sitka and white spruce, offering the best tonal properties of the two woods and creating an incredible sound. Taylor have reinforced the guitar with performance bracing to maximise projection, allowing the guitar to project louder for a bigger sound. With its expression system offering clean amplification that?s perfect for studio and stage, the Taylor 510e Dreadnought is the ideal electro acoustic guitar to accompany other instruments or complement vocals.

Dreadnought Body

For their 510e electro acoustic guitar, Taylor have refined the classic Dreadnought shape to suit their own needs, producing low-end power, a snappy midrange, and strong, clear treble notes. Whilst still offering the powerful tones that you would normally get from a dreadnought, the redesigned-take provides the essence of the balanced Taylor sound. With a blend of power and articulation, this dreadnought acoustic is perfect for flatpickers, as well as players who love the traditional guitar shape and tones.

Lutz Spruce & Tropical Mahogany

The Taylor guitar features a beautiful lutz spruce top, a hybrid of sitka and white spruce to deliver powerful sonic properties that enhance the guitars projection and tonal richness. Featuring the best of sitka and white, the Lutz spruce produces a broad dynamic range and a crisp articulation that accommodates numerous playing styles, from aggressive strumming to fingerpicking. This stunning tonewood is contrasted with tropical mahogany back and sides, which delivers a meaty midrange, producing punchy, “woody” tones with plenty of depth and complexity that will please most playing styles. This stunning combination of tonewoods not only provides you with a beautiful guitar, but also offers a great combination of tones.

Unique Bracing Pattern

The performance bracing pattern features customised bracing profiles and placement for each body shape to optimise their inherent strengths. This bracing pattern uses side braces as well as the standard setup, adding rigidity and helping to maximise both top and back movement. The overall effect is an enhanced midrange, sustain, and tone that features plenty of warmth.

Expression System 2

The Taylor Expression System 2 is a revolutionary pickup design that delivers the latest in Taylor's ongoing innovation in acoustic guitar amplification. The heart of the ES2 is Taylor's proprietary behind-the-saddle pickup, which features three uniquely positioned and individually calibrated pickup sensors. The location of the sensors enables a more dynamic range of acoustic sound to be captured than ever before. Together with Taylor's custom designed professional audio grade preamp, this system produces exceptional amplified tone and responsiveness. On stage through a PA, plugged into your favourite acoustic amplifier, or direct into recording software, the Expression System 2 faithfully conveys the voice of your Taylor guitar.
