Taylor are experts in crafting first-class acoustic guitars, and the 410e-R is yet another superb edition. With a conventional, non-cutaway dreadnought body profile, the 410e-R is the ideal model for fingerstyle and strumming guitarists alike. The 410e-R LTD has been carefully constructed using top quality tonewoods to contribute to a sweeping acoustic projection with clarity and volume. The dreadnought guitar has often been described as a "workhorse" and the Taylor 410e-R is no exception.
As mentioned, Taylor have built the 410e-R to the classic dreadnought body profile. This particular body shape has been long-established in the world of guitars thanks to its versatile tonal range, accomplishing complex lows and bright, snappy highs.
Taylor have employed Sitka spruce in the body top, a tonewood which has been used in the construction of a vast majority of the Taylor acoustic guitars. It is a strong yet supple material, and with the inclusion of performance bracing with the patented relief rout it adds more elasticity and durability which consequently enhances the overall sound output. The back and sides are made from Indian rosewood which is a great all-rounder, with a consistent tone, producing bright high end and treble tones to deep low ends.
A tropical mahogany neck is firmly joined to the body and has a comfortable satin finish. The neck is paired with an ebony fingerboard with 20 frets for you to explore helped by 4mm dot Italian acrylic inlays to guide you. The mahogany and ebony partnership promotes an improved playing feel on every part of the neck.
The 410e-R LTD is fitted with modern electronics in the form of the Expression System 2 preamp. Unlike other piezo pickups, the Expression System 2 has a piezo pickup which sits beneath the saddle, rather than being placed under the soundboard or saddle. The pickup has three sensors which have been individually calibrated, and due to their uncommon positioning it enables the preamp to accurately translate the acoustic timbre of the guitar.
The preamp has very simple controls for Volume and Tone for you to contour your sound whenever you need to.
HARDWARE AND FINISH
The headstock has nickel tuners which work relentlessly to maintain accurate tuning of each string. Further down, the body is completed with a tortoise pickguard and a three-ring soundhole rosette, all complementing the natural finish of the guitar.
