Taylor have released a new range of Limited Edition models including 410e Baritone-6. Unlike a conventional 6-string acoustic which would usually be tuned from E to E, the Baritone-6 is a non-cutaway baritone dreadnought which is tuned from B to B and yet still retains a normal string tension even for a lower register. Built using superb quality tonewoods and equipped with robust, dedicated hardware, the 410e is an acoustic like no other which will form a beautiful partnership with a wide range of varied instruments.
The LTD 410e has a classic dreadnought body profile with no cutaway needed, offering a slick visual appearance, while the baritone bracing adds stability beneath the soundboard. The Baritone-6 LTD has a 27 inch scale length and uses ovangkol to structure the back and sides. Ovangkol is a sustainable material which comes from the African rosewood family, giving the 410e a well-rounded and well-balanced overall tone suitable for all musical styles. An Engelmann spruce top in a Tobacco Sunburst finish completes the body. Engelmann spruce wood is known for its rich midrange and a tone which sounds like it has perhaps come from an older model for a mature acoustic the moment you take it out of the box.
A mahogany neck with a comfortable profile is fitted to the 410e for optimal playability. Despite the baritone nature of this model, the string tension is normal, like any other high-quality acoustic, making it feel easy to play. The neck is topped with an ebony fingerboard for a sumptuous surface beneath the fingertips. The frets feature decorative Italian acrylic 4mm dot inlays which guide you throughout each movement. Enjoy the lower register of tone on offer with this 19-fret model.
Expression System 2 Pickup
The natural baritone voice of the 410e can be eloquently transferred via a PA system or amplifier thanks to the Expression System 2 pickup. The ES2 pickup has a unique design which involves three individually calibrated pickup sensors that are positioned to improve the amplified tone of the guitar it sits within. The lower registers and the rich, cultured acoustic sounds of this Limited Edition model sound just as wonderful when amplified.
Hardware and Finish
The 410e Baritone-6 comes in a warm Tobacco Sunburst finish which is complemented by the shading of the back and sides, white binding and purfling. A 3-ring soundhole rosette is also partnered by a tortoise pickguard to protect against scratches. An ebony bridge improves the sustain and sonic texture on offer from the 410e Baritone-6 LTD model.
The Baritone-6 headstock is fitted with robust Taylor nickel tuners that ensure the B-tuning of the guitar remains firmly in place. To protect your new baritone beauty, Taylor include a deluxe hardshell case, plus it comes with a Limited Edition label.
