Amazing Dreadnought Tone from Taylor!

With the Taylor 810ce acoustic-electric guitar, they've taken everything you love about their iconic dreadnought guitar and refined it for maximum tone and response. You'll hear a richer voice, with more complex harmonics and a more open sound that's incredibly vibrant. The secret is that Taylor optimized the wood thickness and bracing patterns to give you the best that the dreadnought design has to offer - powerful lows, crisp highs, and exceptional balance across the entire spectrum. For definitive dreadnought tone, you can't go wrong with the Taylor 810ce acoustic-electric guitar.

Taylor 810ce Acoustic-electric Guitar at a Glance:
  • A richer, more vibrant voice than ever before thanks to customized bracing
  • Exceptional tone, volume, and balance thanks to custom-tailored wood thickness
  • Taylor's Expression System 2 delivers incredibly natural sound with full dynamics
A richer, more vibrant voice than ever before thanks to customized bracing

You'll notice that the Taylor 810ce boasts exceptionally vibrant tones with a unique character. Taylor went back to the drawing board and redesigned their bracing patterns, to get the optimum response out of each of their iconic body shapes. Taylor even added side bracing to add rigidity to the sides and enhance top and back movement. In the words of luthier Andy Powers, the updated Advanced Performance bracing pattern gives the updated 810ce a "nice, cushy swell and long sustain, even with a delicate touch."

Exceptional tone, volume, and balance thanks to custom-tailored wood thickness

One of the things we like best about Taylor at Sweetwater is that their various body styles are designed for specific purposes, allowing you to choose a guitar that's the perfect match for your style. With the 810ce, Taylor takes that to another level by carefully matching the thickness of the spruce top and rosewood back and sides to the body style. They determined what the optimum wood thickness for the 810ce's dreadnought body would be, to give you maximum tone and light weight while also being equally strong. Taylor is also using real animal protein glue (fish, in fact) instead of synthetic glue. Luthiers have been using protein glues for centuries for their incredible strength, and also for their tone. Protein glue optimizes transfer of vibrations and also holds amazingly well, which means you're sure to get a lifetime of fantastic tone from the Taylor 810ce acoustic-electric.

Taylor's Expression System 2 delivers incredibly natural sound with full dynamics

Traditionally, acoustic-electric guitars have employed under-saddle piezo transducers, but Taylor has discovered a better way. Their revolutionary Expression System 2 uses a proprietary pickup behind the saddle. The pickup's three individually calibrated, precisely positioned piezo-electric sensors respond organically to the instrument's acoustic energy as it's transferred through the saddle. In concert with Taylor's custom-designed preamp (which delivers a 25% hotter signal), the result is a more natural acoustic sound with incredible dynamic range and responsiveness to your pick or finger attack. Sweetwater's guitar gurus are mightily impressed with Taylor's Expression System 2. Whether you're onstage through a PA, plugged into an acoustic amp, or direct into recording software, the ES2 faithfully conveys the voice of a Taylor guitar.

Taylor 810ce Acoustic-electric Guitar Features:
  • Dreadnought guitar with a powerful voice and well-balanced tone
  • Incredibly natural-sounding plugged-in tone thanks to the Expression System 2 electronics
  • Exceptionally open, vibrant sound thanks to real protein glue, no synthetic adhesives used
  • Sitka spruce top provides a light and expressive sound
  • Indian rosewood back and sides gives you a rich, vibrant sound with exceptional projection
  • Classic dreadnought tone with crisp highs and powerful lows, thanks to customized Advanced Performance bracing pattern
  • Maximum strength and tone with minimum weight, thanks to customized wood thickness
  • Extremely thin gloss finish (3.5mil thick)
  • Hardshell case included
Taylor has improved on their own legacy with the updated 810ce acoustic-electric!

Great sounding guitar with sparkling tone and harmonics

I've been playing this guitar ,almost every day for the last two years. The sounds so delicious that I never get tired of playing it. In fairness ,I like my HD-28 also ,but what is so special about the Taylor ,is that every note rings,with beautiful clarity,and exceptional shimmering tone. To my ear , this is the best sounding acoustic guitar ,that I've played in the last 40 years. They sound as good as they look. I am so happy about this purchase.
