Taylor 510 - Mahogany back and sides
Special Order

Lutz Spruce-topped Mahogany Sounds Amazing

The Taylor 510 6-string acoustic guitar is packed with volume, low-end richness, projection, and responsiveness, thanks to its classic dreadnought shape and innovative bracing. Tropical mahogany back and sides deliver a beautiful blend of warmth and liveliness that sounds amazing when married to the clear overtones provided by the 510's Lutz spruce top. A comfortable V-carve neck is topped by a highly playable ebony fingerboard with eye-catching grained ivoroid Century inlays. A faux tortoise shell rosette, pickguard, and binding top off the superb Taylor 510 6-string acoustic guitar.

Taylor 510 6-string Acoustic Guitar at a Glance:
  • Lutz spruce and tropical mahogany deliver exquisite tone
  • Advanced bracing yields a rich, vibrant voice
  • Classic dreadnought shape delivers excellent tone and volume
Lutz spruce and tropical mahogany deliver exquisite tone

The Taylor 510's tropical mahogany body produces a warm, lively sound that's framed beautifully by the crisp overtones provided by its Lutz spruce top. Lutz spruce is a natural hybrid of Sitka and white spruce, and it imbues the 510 with phenomenal clarity.

Performance Bracing yields a rich, vibrant voice

When we first played the Taylor 510 here at Sweetwater, we couldn't help but notice its exceptionally vibrant tones and unique character. This stronger, richer tone is the result of Taylor redesigning their bracing patterns to get the optimum response out of each of their iconic body shapes.

Classic dreadnought shape delivers excellent tone and volume

The powerful voice and unrivaled projection of the traditional dreadnought body style has made it the choice of strummers and flatpickers throughout history. The naturally deep lows, crisp highs, and open, airy midrange of Taylor's dreadnought body help to balance the 510's tone, yielding a sound that's equally at home with traditional bluegrass as it is with modern acoustic rock. If you're looking for a guitar that can handle aggressive picking and driving rhythms, you're going to love the Taylor 510.

Taylor 510 6-string Acoustic Guitar Features:
