The 310ce Dreadnought is truly the performer's choice, combining technology and craftsmanship with modest style. The soft feel of the 24-7/8-inch-scale-length neck featured on the cutaway 310ce, love the clear projection and top-end brightness of the solid sapele/Sitka spruce tonewood pairing is somethig that you will fall in love with; in just one strum.
A Venitian cutaway in the 310ce Dreadnought body allows better access to the upper frets. Many players moving to acoustic guitars prefer the cutaways on their guitar as they have on their electric guitars because the way it gives the freedom of movement into the upper register that a cutaway allows. Cutaways are favored as much for their decorative appeal as for their function aswell.
Strummers and flatpickers will love the clear projection and top-end brightness of the solid sapele/Sitka spruce tonewood pairing, while the Dreadnought body’s wide waist produces a strong low end and scooped midrange.
After several years of research, Taylor designed their own groundbreaking pickup system that uses magnetics much like a microphone. The result is an exceptionally pure reproduction of an acoustic guitars natural sound. The Taylor Expression System delivers an amplified tone that will satisfy the most demanding pro player, yet makes it simple for anyone to plug in and sound great.
And what about neck? Introduced in 1999 and a standard feature since 2001, the patented New Technology (NT) neck was designed by Bob Taylor and his team to accomplish the primary goal of building a straighter, more stable guitar neck. While some necks may bend in the face of humidity and other factors, the NT Neck stays stable and straight. The NT Neck on the 310ce means a stable, easy-to-adjust neck that stands up to the pressures all acoustic guitars face.
Taylor takes pride in using the finest quality woods for their guitars, like ebony for every fretboard they make. The tone woods for the 310ce were quartersawn and carefully book-matched before being sorted, dried, and prepared. The 310ce pearl inlay and binding work was also done by hand, providing care and "touch" that no machine can give.
