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.
- Satin with Gloss Top
The DN3 offers a breath of fresh air into the world of all-solid wood guitars, with improvements to boot. With features such as a solid Sitka spruce top, solid Sapele back/sides and an ebony fret board, the DN3 holds its own with guitar's costing twice as much— while also refining that potent sound. Our Dreadnought’s robust bass and articulate mids blend power and balance and dare you to dig in and challenge your flatpicking prowess. The sapele/Sitka spruce DN3 is an excellent choice for a great solid-wood dreadnought within a budget.
Although relatively similar to the pre-2007 counterpart, the 310, the new bracing and selection of tone woods; the DN3's slightly modified dreadnought style body gives a better emphasis in the bass registers, while still giving you that classic Taylor clarity in the high end. The finish reflects Taylor's attention to details, as it is cured flawlessly and remained free of wear and tear. Neck wise, the action is set perfectly; a barre chord could be played up the entire register with ease. Each fret is well dressed.
The DN3 looks light, but once you pick it up, this thing has more guts than a George Romero film. Gig wise, this guitar is definitely stage worthy; drop a mic in front of this guy and enjoy the show.
The Taylor Dreadnought is a focused guitar with plenty of presence, recently redesigned to be even more assertive. It’s a traditional choice for the traditional player. This is the model to drive with a heavy pick. The finish used to create this guitar's textured satin back and sides and lustrous gloss top was developed at Taylor for maximum durability and resistance to cold-checking. This ultraviolet-cured finish is also more environmentally friendly than traditional lacquer finishes.
One of the best things about this guitar is its versatility.
