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.
Rainsong Concert Series 12-Fret
A new listening experience for the player that accentuates the sparkling trebles and the full bass. This guitar is especially well suited for alternate tunings. The CO-WS1005NS, like all the other members of the Concert Series, has an all-graphite body and a unidirectional Carbon soundboard. Unique to this model is the offset soundhole and the 12-fret, short scale (24.9”) neck.
Guild OM-240ce Cutaway Electric

Guild’s signature arched back design allows for great volume and projection, long sustain, and a lush, full sound.

This model also includes Guild’s new lightweight deluxe gig bag. Available in Natural.
Martin OM-21 (2018)

Also available in Sunburst and Ambertone finish.
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.
