A Complex, Dark, and Full Taylor Dreadnought

A satin-finished mahogany top and Tasmanian blackwood body give the Taylor 320e acoustic-electric guitar its rich open sound, with warmth, punch, and a slow bloom that fingerstylists and delicate strummers are sure to appreciate. The 320e comes loaded with Taylor Expression System 2 electronics to capture the full detail of your playing when you're plugged in at the coffee shop, onstage at the club, or tracking at the studio. Get the sweet blend of mahogany and blackwood in a versatile dreadnought size with the Taylor 320e acoustic-electric guitar.

Taylor 320e Acoustic-electric Guitar at a Glance:
  • Familiar dreadnought body style for versatile tone and playability
  • Rich tone and looks from a mahogany/blackwood design
  • Taylor Expression System 2 electronics deliver superior sound onstage
Familiar dreadnought body style for versatile tone and playability

The 320e has the playability and full voice you expect from a Taylor dreadnought, but with a broader, darker tonal spectrum and unique stage looks thanks to an exotic tonewood pairing. Strummers, bluegrass pickers, fingerstylists, and solo singer/songwriters will all find things to appreciate in the Taylor 320e.

Rich tone and looks from a mahogany/blackwood design

A tropical mahogany top gives the Taylor 320e its complex lows and controlled midrange. Back and sides made from Tasmanian blackwood - a cousin of koa wood - enhance harmonic content and give this guitar a custom look under stage lights. A dark stain gives the mahogany top a moody look to match its complex sound.

Taylor Expression System 2 electronics deliver superior sound onstage

Artists who play plugged in will appreciate the natural-sounding Taylor Expression System 2 (ES2) electronics onboard the 320e acoustic guitar. This system features a three-section proprietary pickup located behind the guitar's saddle for clear and accurate sound reproduction. A master volume control and a pair of tone controls let you tweak your sound and output from the stage, and a discreet phase switch offers vital onboard feedback suppression. For direct tone you can depend on, Sweetwater guitarists recommend Taylor ES2 electronics.

Taylor 320e Acoustic-electric Guitar Features:
  • Classic dreadnought body style
  • Versatile - suits most players and genres of music
  • Tropical mahogany produces a rich, deep tone
  • Tasmanian blackwood back and sides enhance harmonics and projection

320E vs Martin 00015m

This guitar is awesome. I thought I should compare the 320e and the 000 because I ordered the 000 first and loved its sound and playability. I played a 320e a month later and called up Drew at sweetwater in hopes of an exchange. The fact that he said yes after I had my guitar for over the 30 day period really says a lot about Sweetwaters' service. They really do care about their customers satisfaction. Anyways, on to the differences: The Martin's sound is not as loud or bright as the Taylor but a bit more round and warm,The ease of play and action I thought was better but the neck width was noticeably smaller so playing up the neck begins to hurt your hands/wrist sooner than the Taylor. The Martin did not come with a place to attack my strap. And also the Martin 000 hogs do not come with Electric option. I plan to perform, so this was a big concern for me. I looked into attaching a pickup, but the Taylor 320e is the same price and comes with electronics. Personally I like the looks of the Martin, but Taylor has certain features you can't ignore. One thing that really struck me with the Taylor tone was its roundness when played fingerstyle and then this bright, loud, deep sound when played with a pick. The Martin is absolutely a great piece and so is the Taylor. Wish I could have both.
4.5/5

2016 Taylor 320e

Absolutely love the tone wood combination. The ES2 electronics was a bit of a learning curve; but once it's set right, the sound is amazing. Would definitely recommend this tone wood combination to everyone I know looking for a new guitar. And the customer service at Sweetwater is second to none.
