More For Your Dollar - Outstanding Dreadnought Tone!

The Taylor DN3e is Taylor's take on a high-quality dreadnought acoustic-electric guitar. Dreadnoughts are loved for their strong bass response and their articulate midrange - and that's just what you can expect from this beauty. What's more, its solid Sitka spruce top and sapele back and sides only add to the tonal character of the Taylor DN3 - making it a truly great value, and one of the most affordable solid-wood Taylor guitars. Plus, you also get the renowned Taylor Expression System electronics installed on this Taylor DN3e.

Taylor DN3e Acoustic-electric Guitar at a Glance:
  • Excellent value for a solid-topped Taylor guitar
  • Dreadnought body style, for strong bass and articulate midrange
  • Taylor Expression System Electronics

Excellent value for a solid-topped Taylor guitar
Not only is the Taylor DN3e an incredible-sounding, beautiful instrument - it also marks one of the most affordable entries into Taylor's acclaimed line of solid-topped acoustic guitars. The added tonal dimension you get from solid tonewoods is unbelievable - and with a gorgeous Sitka spruce top and sapele wood for its body, you'll enjoy stellar sound and tone from this DN3e. Plus, it's equally suited to strumming as it is to fingerstyle playing - making it a perfect choice for nearly every player, especially anyone growing out of their first "beginner" guitar and stepping up into a true stage-worthy and studio-worthy instrument.

Dreadnought body style, for strong bass and articulate midrange
The Dreadnought is a prized and popular acoustic body style - mainly because of the kind of tonal qualities the body style creates. You get plenty of bass response - which is perfect for solo acoustic players, who are playing without bass guitar accompaniment. Plus, the midrange is extremely articulate - that's important because it ensures that every nuance of your detailed fingerpicked passages are clearly heard. All in all, you simply can't go wrong with a dreadnought body style - it's at the heart of the very legacy and tradition of acoustic guitar playing.

Taylor Expression System Electronics
Whether you're a proven stage warrior, laying down tracks in the studio, or just jamming in your living room - you won't believe the tone you get for your dollar with the Taylor DN3e. That's because on top of its exceptional response unplugged, you also get Taylor's top-of-the-line Express System electronics installed, so you can plug in and enjoy remarkable tone onstage. The Expression System uses patented Dynamic Sensors to capture top and string vibration like never before. Created in partnership with renowned audio pioneer Rupert Neve, the Taylor ES system is seamlessly integrated into the design of the guitar from the ground up. Onboard tone controls provide added flavor, or can be set flat for an uncolored, exceptionally clean amplified sound.
