A satin black smoke finish offset with grained ivoroid binding and pickguard show off the understated beauty of this guitar. It is crafted with a solid Sitka spruce top and mahogany back and sides for a comforting, warm tone. The rosewood fingerboard and bridge pop against the rich, black satin finish. The comfortable body size and modified low oval neck with a Performing Artist taper make this guitar easy to play. This model comes equipped with Matrix VT Enhance ™ acoustic amplification by Fishman®.
Taylor’s 500 Series Dreadnoughts boast several uniquely compelling design features, including a slightly shorter 24-7/8-inch scale length and a V-carve neck with a slotted headstock. The result is an inviting handfeel with less string tension — making string bends fun — and matches up well with chord strummers and vocals. The dynamic response of the Lutz spruce top works especially well with the dry, woody sound of mahogany, producing a balanced voice with crisp highs and soft lows. With Taylor’s Performance bracing optimized for the Dreadnought shape and the model’s other features, the 510e makes a musically versatile instrument that blends well with other instruments, either unplugged or amplified with Taylor’s Expression System 2 electronics.
The solid ovangkol/spruce 412ce features Taylor’s compact Grand Concert body shape, a short-scale neck, and a Venetian cutaway for an ultra-playable fretting experience. Ovangkol shares rosewood’s full-spectrum tonal range, with a slightly fuller midrange and a bright, focused top end. The smaller body will curb the overtones and fit well in a mix with other instruments. Taylor’s Expression System® 2 pickup delivers clear, natural sounding amplified tone for gigging or recording. Aesthetic details include white binding, Italian acrylic dot fretboard inlays, a three-ring rosette, and a full-gloss body. The guitar ships in a Taylor deluxe hardshell case.
Taylor 916ce Sunburst
An array of nuanced voicing refinements have infused this Taylor Grand Symphony — already known for having a powerful sound — with even more tonal horsepower, extra low-end rumble, and a richer overall response, all without sacrificing balance or top-end articulation. A comprehensive aesthetic makeover preserves the status of our 900 Series as our ultra-premium class of rosewood guitars, featuring intricate appointments. A contoured armrest showcases the highest level of Taylor craftsmanship and offers players an elegant and ergonomic feature that makes strumming and picking more comfortable than ever. Aesthetic details include a smooth fusion of natural materials — wood and shell — in the form of ebony binding, koa purfling, and a mix of abalone and mother-of-pearl inlay and trim work. Additional features include a soft Venetian cutaway and Taylor’s Expression System® 2 pickup for superb amplified tone. The guitar ships in a Taylor deluxe hardshell case.
Collings D1 Adirondack 1 3/4" Nut Width
The square-shouldered 14-fret dreadnought is the most popularsteel-string acoustic guitar body shape in the world. While Collings iscertainly not the only company to build them, they bring a new tonalclarity to the depth and warmth usually associated with such a large,deep-bodied guitar. Although its bass response makes the dreadnought ideal for vocal accompaniment, Collings versions are also often employed by bluegrass flatpickers who must compete with inherently louder instruments such as banjos and fiddles. The wide range of woods and neck sizes offered allow dreadnought fans to find a Collings model ideally suited to their playing style and tonal preference.
*This guitar includes the new traditional Collings made hardshell case.
