Taylor 810ce Dreadnought - Natural, Cutaway Reviews

5.0 stars based on 5 customer reviews

Sweetwater Advice

  • Ryan Murphy

    Taylor's 810ce has a huge sound! The solid rosewood body punches out a well-balanced low end tone which compliments the solid spruce top to produce a big sounding box that is larger than life. It's great for bluegrass players and rockers who need that BIG acoustic sound.

    Love It!

    I have waited 12 years to get the Taylor 810ce and am absolutely thrilled with it. First off, the sound is fantastic. Second, it is easy to play and makes me a better guitar player. Third, it is gorgeous. What else is there to say? I love it.

    Returning intermediate. Had a R&R band in the 70's and 80's.

    More than happy

    Nothing needs to be said. It's a Taylor! No complaints, allthough, I remember that my 1994 810 had a slightly brighter, more full sound. Maybe I hear that guitar in my memory as the finest guitat I ever had the pleasure to play. I am also of the mind that Taylors are much more popular than they were almost 20 years ago and when that is the case production values may suffer.

    50+ years of playing (25 years in the Musicians Union) and teaching all styles of guitar.

    It's got it all!

    New 2012 810CE has the nice "banjo" inlays, maple body binding, 1&3/4" nut width, all solid premium woods like a world class flat-top ought to have.
    The acoustic sound is perfect for what I want. I tended to shy away from rosewood s/b dreads because I like the bright qualities of maple sides/back, and I also tend to like the more complex sounds of concert shapes vs dreads, BUT my new 810CE is plenty spanky with mahogany "velocity," yet full range with that nice harmonic complexity usually other body shapes than dreadnought seem to bring to the party. The cutaway doesn't seem to lose any frequency response acoustically, and of course the usually superb Taylor playability is there in the neck, and I love the slightly wider 1&3/4" nut width. Who says you can't fingerpick on a dread? It's lively sounding and the volume is what you expect from a solid wood correctly braced World class dreadnought.

    I took off half a star only because it's not a pre-war Martin (hardly IT'S fault)!
