A Capable Dreadnought for Stage and Studio

Taylor's 210e Deluxe acoustic-electric guitar is a fantastic way to step up to Taylor quality. The classic dreadnought body style is perfect for everything from delicate flatpicking to heavy strumming. We've found the 210e Deluxe to have surprising volume, plus a lively top end that always turns heads in the Sweetwater guitar showroom. And your tone won't turn into plastic when you plug in unlike some acoustic-electric guitars, thanks to Taylor's ES2 electronics. You're sure to create lasting musical memories with the Taylor 210e Deluxe.

Taylor 210e Deluxe Acoustic-electric Guitar at a Glance:
  • Classic dreadnought volume combined with clear treble
  • Taylor Expression System 2 electronics deliver a natural amplified sound
  • Solid Sitka spruce top gives you wonderfully clear and balanced tone
Classic dreadnought volume combined with clear treble

A traditional shape refined, the 210e Deluxe combines classic dreadnought volume and bass response with the definitive Taylor sound: clear trebles and an open, airy midrange that Bob Taylor's signature design accentuates. Like all dreadnoughts, the 210e Deluxe responds especially well to flatpicking or light-to-heavy strumming.

Taylor Expression System 2 electronics deliver a natural amplified sound

If you play plugged in, then you're going to love the Taylor Expression System 2 (ES2) electronics built into this 210e. The key to this fantastic system is the 3-section proprietary pickup located behind the saddle. Because of where it's positioned and how it's integrated into the 210e's saddle, the ES2 pickup provides you with remarkably clear and accurate sound. In addition to a master volume control, a pair of tone controls let you tweak your highs and lows to get the sound you need, and a discreet phase switch offers vital onboard feedback suppression.

Solid Sitka spruce top gives you wonderfully clear and balanced tone

To give the 210e Deluxe full tone and clear projection, Taylor added a solid Sitka spruce top to its layered rosewood back and sides. The characteristically open sound of this spruce top really balances the tone of the 210e Deluxe, making it a wonderful guitar for any style of music you play.

Taylor 210e Deluxe Acoustic-electric Guitar Features:
  • An acoustic-electric guitar with a bright and balanced voice
  • Dreadnought body style gives you powerful volume and projection
  • Spruce top provides a well-balanced tone
  • Stunning layered rosewood back and sides for a captivating look
  • Onboard ES2 electronics give you great sound with flexible tone shaping
The Taylor 210e Deluxe delivers incredible sound, even plugged in!

Taylor Ingress 210e DLX

Hi All, This guitar turned out to be a replacement for a 12 string that I ordered and sent back. I was not happy with the 12 string, not for any other reason than I was hoping for it to be a little more robust in volume unplugged. So I scrapped the idea of adding an additional 12 to my repertoire and followed a suggestion by one of Sweetwater's sales staff. I had actually missed this model, which was right in my affordability range and was more than eager to take the plunge into the world of Taylor, having 4 Martins an Epiphone, a Seagull, a Fender, and an Ibanez. I'd heard Taylor's were on the brighter side and I do love a strong low end range to be there when I want it. Short story long, I am so happy with this axe. It has a beautiful sound and did not lack any of the low end I thought it might. Play-ability, oh yea, one of the stronger points in the joy of making this baby sing. I normally play unplugged but when I did plug this guitar in I loved the natural sound the ES 2 pickup system delivers. I'm not sure why, but I knew when I picked up the 12 when it arrived it wasn't going to have that sound I was looking even before I hit the strings. It just was heavy, no disappointments in quality but unless I was going to play it amped all the time I would be disappointed. On the other hand when I opened the case on the Taylor, I just knew it was going to sing, and beside being gorgeous to look at it felt like it when I picked it up as well. The sound was awesome, and I expected very good. The rosette with it's pearl, small diamond fret-board markers, beautiful gloss finish, and superb overall workmanship melted away any apprehension I had had buying another guitar without hands on testing. I would highly recommend this guitar to anyone who is looking for an exceptional guitar in it's price range. As usual the Sweetwater people couldn't have made my experience buying a guitar any better. They cross shipped my Taylor as I was shipping the 12 string back. My sales rep Enej Begovic, and everyone I have dealt with at Sweetwater are examples of how to keep customers happy and loyal. Great Job SW!
Music background: I'll never be that good, but it would be hard to beat my happiness!

A fine instrument

The robust qualities of rosewood and a full gloss make the Deluxe a very different guitar than the standard 210. Yes, it's a laminate back & sides, but it's rosewood on the outside of that laminate. The construction and finish are flawless.The 210e Deluxe is shipped in a Taylor case. These are of fine construction and fit the instrument perfectly. Along with the purchase came a microfiber polishing cloth and a dozen Dunlop mediums, which I have put to good use. I have since added a Fender Acoustic 15 (also from Sweetwater) to take advantage of the installed electronics. The little Fender is great in the living room and probably will suffice for cozy outdoor gatherings. I have found that I can do more fingerpicking and actually hear myself as opposed to playing unplugged. Sweetwater's customer service is excellent. The sales rep - Jason - has reached out to me, as the shipments arrived and a few weeks afterwards to check on my continuing satisfaction with the items ordered.. Not only does the site offer great photos of the actual instruments in stock, it further allows the customer more ease of selection. Placing an order, online or by telephone is EZ. Shipments are fast and free. I'd not hesitate to order from Sweetwater again.
Music background: 50+ years playing experience.

Rosewood makes all the difference

I played a mahogany dreadnaught for many years and always wanted one out of rosewood. After careful consideration, I went with the 210e Deluxe because the rosewood was inside as well as outside the body and the full gloss finish. To my ears, those 2 factors significantly improve the tone. As with any Taylor, the construction and finish is flawless. The included case provides a firm, padded fit and sturdy construction to protect the guitar. Sweetwater's service is great. My transaction was EZ. Shipping was on-time and without damage. Customer follow-up has been wonderful. I would do business with Sweetwater again.

210 DLX

My Taylor 210 DLX is the perfect acoustic guitar, at its price point. Had it about a month now and I still get amazed every time I play it.Nice tone and easy to make music. No electronics on mine, just pure, natural sound.The woodwork looks great and smells better! I'm happy Taylor supplied the hard case. Great deal for a $799 guitar.

Maybe I got lucky but...this is a STEAL

This is the best sounding and playing guitar I've ever owned...and by a long shot not the most costly. It looks and sounds like a D-28 Martin, only better with the Taylor signature top end pop. Maybe I just got an exceptionally good one but I really can't find any flaw with this instrument. Compared to my Tak EF341SC - another excellent guitar - the 210e DLX has much more brilliance and nuance of tone, easier fretting action and all around much more punch. I guess the fancier Taylor series are "even better" - or at least better looking - but I'm also pretty sure you can't buy a better sounding and playing acoustic/electric than this, at anywhere near the 1K price point. Oh and as a bonus, when plugged in, it's also awesome sounding with the higher-end ES2 pickup. I wouldn't pay up for the cutaway model as you can easily play up to and past the 16th fret without it; and if you regularly do that then you're probably not looking at guitars in this range...Needless to say the Sweetwater team did their usual fantastic job ensuring it showed up ready to play and in prime setup. All around - awesome.
