SOLD

It’s that time of year again! Taylor Guitars has released their 2010 Fall Limited guitars, and they are a seriously beautiful bunch. The star of this fall’s show is Taylor’s new fingerboard inlays. Fine lines are laser etched on to the inlay pieced, creating some fantastic looking detail patterns. I had the opportunity to see these inlay pieces as they were under development during my visit to the Taylor factory this summer. I’ll post another link to the article covering the factory tour at the bottom of this page. For now, let’s take a closer look at each of the new Fall Limiteds!

 

Taylor 816ce-LTD

Taylor 512ce-LTD

Can’t get enough Koa? Me neither! The 512ce-LTD adds a beautiful Koa back and side wood set to the traditional 512 design. As a result, this guitar has the balance and clarity you would expect from any Taylor 512, but with a little extra chime in the high-mids. The lower register is tight and well defined, with a full, clear sustain. The 512ce-LTD also features Taylor’s new “Engraved Pipeline” fingerboard inlay; a different design than the other 2010 Fall Limiteds.

Specifications

* Grand concert body
* Venetian cutaway
* Hawaiian koa sides and back
* Sitka spruce top
* Koa rosette
* Rosewood body binding
* Mahogany neck
* Ebony fretboard

* 25.5″ scale length
* Low profile neck shape
* Expression System pickup
* Hardshell case

 

Taylor 810-LTD

The 810ce-LTD is the heavy hitter of the bunch. In classic Taylor fashion, this guitar delivers great power with plenty of punch under a heavy strum, but with the clear definition all Taylor dreadnoughts are known for. Setting the 810ce-LTD apart from a standard 810 is an extra deep lower bout, as well as the Engraved Victorian fingerboardĀ  inlay.

Specifications

* Deep body dreadnought
* Indian rosewood sides and back
* Sitka spruce top
* Abalone rosette
* CV bracing
* White body binding
* Mahogany neck
* Ebony fretboard
* Engraved Victorian inlay
* 1 3/4″ nut width
* 25.5″ scale length
* Low profile neck shape
* Expression System pickup
* Hardshell case
