The Taylor 410ce Electro Acoustic Guitar is an incredibly beautiful guitar in both looks and sound, with a cutaway dreadnought body constructed from a solid Sitka spruce top combined with solid Ovangkol back and sides, while the innovative onboard Taylor Expression System pickup and preamp offer the same acoustic warmth though speakers as you get unplugged.
The dreadnought body shape used as the blueprint for the Taylor 410ce Electro Acoustic Guitar is the most widely recognised guitar form. The versatile shape has a level of clarity and articulation that is hard to match, and projection that ensures you’ll always be heard. This dreadnought also benefits from Taylor’s Venetian cutaway, giving unrestricted upper fret access, with a subtle and smooth swooping cut out.
Another acoustic classic is seen in this model, with the top being constructed of solid Sitka spruce. Combining well with the dreadnought shape, this wood draws out the best from it, with a tone that is focussed and bright. Making up the back and sides of the guitar is solid ovangkol. A wood that is similar to rosewood in its tonal make-up, though with a slightly fuller midrange and a bright, focused top end, ovangkol is very balanced, with a full-spectrum tonal range that is perfect for generalists.
The guitar’s playing surface is combination of a 1-3/4"-wide tropical mahogany neck joined by a 20-fret ebony fingerboard with progressive dot inlays.
Taylor Expression System (ES)
The Expression System pickup completes the package by translating a transparent representation of the guitar’s beautiful tone through your amplifier or P.A system. This is possible, thanks to the all-magnetic pickup system that functions like a microphone, giving the sound of the guitar, not the pickup. This includes two important elements to capture the full sound of the guitar: a soundboard-mounted Dynamic Body Sensor, and a Dynamic String Sensor, which is embedded beneath the fretboard.
The other part of the system is the discreet preamp situated at the guitar’s upper bout. This is comprised of three simple rotary controls: Volume, Bass, and Treble.
