It’s hard to name that one person who’s never played a guitar, or at least, wanted to. Hobbyists and occasional guitar players are in abundance, but those handful who are in dire need of a good acoustic guitar will certainly like what we’ve prepared.
This 410ce beauty combines the classic Dreadnought body style with modern Taylor refinements to create the most satisfing playing experience. Solid ovangkol shares rosewood’s full-spectrum tonal range, with a slightly fuller midrange and a bright, focused top end. Pickers and strummers will love the blend of power and articulation, along with Taylor’s sleek, playable necks. Fresh aesthetic touches include white binding, Italian acrylic dot fretboard inlays, a three-ring rosette, and an all-gloss body, while the onboard Taylor Expression System® 2 pickup and preamp deliver a smooth plug-and-play experience. Its body shape is refined to blend its trademark strong low-tone with a snappy midrange and brilliant treble notes, producing a pleasing balance of power and articulation. If you're a flatpicker or strummer who likes to dig in on lead or rhythm, this Dreadnought should serve you well.
A guitar's top is the primary filter and distributor of vibrating string energy through the guitar, which means it has a huge impact on its sound. Sitka Spruce is the most prevalent guitar top wood of the modern era. It blends stiffness and elasticity in just the right proportions which translates into broad dynamic range with crisp articulation. Solid ovangkol back and sides complement the top with a sound that's comparable to rosewood. The heart of the Expression System 2 is Taylor’s patented 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.
The Expression System 2 faithfully conveys the voice of your Taylor guitar, be it on stage through a PA, plugged into your favorite acoustic amplifier, or direct into recording software. The Taylor Expression System 2 operates through a proprietary 9-volt battery compartment and easy-to-use volume, bass and treble controls.
This guitar is made with unmatched build quality, the most stable and playable neck, eco-conscious and ethically-sourced raw materials, and a lifetime of service.
