Taylor 510E Dreadnought Steel String, 2016

The Taylor 510E is now discontinued, so this is one of the last ‘as new’ examples you’re likely to find.

Here, it’s paired with a slotted headstock, which increases downbearing at the nut, and hence open string sustain and separation, without increasing head pitch.
