The Taylor 2006 Limited Editions are Here!
The Taylor 810ce 2006 Fall Limited Edition is one of those rare instruments that sounds as good as it looks. This is largely due to the exceptional tonewoods used to construct this beauty. Sitka beautifully responds to rosewood's special language, translating its rich overtones and dark humors into a tonal palette of stunning breadth. Madagascar rosewood is gaining popularity in the world of high-end tonewoods, often drawing comparisons both tonally and visually to the heralded Brazilian rosewood. Characteristic "spider web" patterns are Madagascar's signature, transitioning beautifully into the figured maple binding and center wedge. Madagascar rosewood is the closest wood to Brazilian rosewood for guitar making. Now making its way into the guitar market, it has many of the same visual and sonic characteristics as Brazilian, being very similar in weight, density, stiffness, and appearance. It has that distinctive bold and punchy sound that many love about Brazilian rosewood, yet it is not endangered and there are no restrictions in its trade.Perennially one of Taylor's most popular models, the exquisite 810ce brings together the unmistakeable high-end tone of Madagascar rosewood, classic Taylor styling, and the versatility of a Dreadnought body, plus adds a cutaway and Expression System electronics to complete the perfect picking package. The 2006 Fall Limiteds are truly works of art, each model unified by dramatic male accents in the form of a center back wedge and handcrafted binding.Taylor 810ce 2006 Fall Limited Edition At-a-Glance:
- Taylor Expression System
A traditional shape refined, we combine 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. Recent re-voicing turns up the bass and volume even more. Dreadnoughts respond especially well to flatpicking or light-to-heavy strumming.
The finish used to create this guitar's lustrous gloss top, back, and sides was developed at Taylor for maximum durability and resistance to cold-checking. This ultra violet-cured finish is also more environmentally friendly than traditional lacquer finishes.
Taylor Expression System
Designed to faithfully reproduce your guitar's native tone, the Expression System utilizes patented Dynamic Sensors to capture top and string vibration like never before. Created in partnership with renowned audio pioneer, Mr. Rupert Neve, the Taylor ES is seamlessly integrated into the design of the guitar from the ground up. Onboard tone controls provide added flavor, or set flat for an uncolored, exceptionally clean amplified sound.
