If you're after a traditional dreadnought with solid woods, you can't go far wrong with the DN series. Though the baby of the series, the Taylor DN3e's combination of superb craftsmanship, value, and style has seen it become one of Taylor's most popular models.
Full Dreadnought Sound
The most traditional acoustic guitar shape, the dreadnought, takes centre stage with the Taylor DN3e Electro Acoustic Guitar. With its rarity of not having a cutaway, this model makes sure absolutely none of its big, booming voice is reduced as every inch of its cavernous body is projecting. Robust bass and clear mids blend with power and balance forging a flatpicking leviathan.
Solid Sitka Spruce Top, Solid Sapele Back and Sides
The top of the guitar is constructed with the Taylor founder’s (Bob Taylor) favourite tonewood, solid Sitka spruce. A solid staple in guitar building, spruce, has a broad dynamic range, bright tone and clarity.
With a sound not dissimilar to mahogany, though with a little extra treble zing; solid sapele takes up residence at the guitar’s back and sides, offering a balanced, great all-round tone.
A tropical mahogany neck with a width of 1-3/4" keeps play comfortable, while the 20-fret ebony fingerboard with 4mm dot inlays gives a smooth surface.
Taylor Expression System (ES)
Ensuring the transparent translation of tone from guitar to amp or P.A is Taylor’s innovative Expression System. Made up of a Dynamic Body Sensor, which is mounted to the soundboard, and a Dynamic String Sensor, which is embedded beneath the fretboard, the all-magnetic pickup system functions like a microphone; giving you a true representation of the guitar’s acoustic tone. Partnered with this is a discrete preamp with a set of three controls: Volume, Bass, and Treble.
