Taylor 510E Dreadnought Steel String, 2016

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. It is built on the classic Spruce top, Mahogany back and side formula that works so well for fingerstyle and flatpicking. 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.

❌SOLD❌  Taylor 556ce 12 String Guitar, 2014

The Taylor 556ce 12 string guitar gives a good illustration of how Taylor became one of the prominent builders of 12-strings. They sound great and play very well, but also Taylor’s unique neck joint makes the inevitable neck reset a simple matter of maintenance. Using the same type of comfortable neck profiles as their six-string guitars, but naturally a bit wider, the Taylor 556ce 12 is a breeze to play
