This selection of walnut makes its statement with beauty, warmth and contrast.
To celebrate spring's arrival, Taylor Guitars is releases its always anticipated Spring Limited Edition models. This year's Limiteds feature an exciting array of exotic tonewoods joining in on Taylor's springtime fun.
Fans of walnut's tonal mix of brightness, projection and warmth will rejoice at the sound and look of the 400 Series Limiteds. The 410ce-LTD sports a deeply figured, chocolate-hued walnut back and sides dramatically contrasted by a figured maple back mini wedge and heel cap, along with a maple neck and body binding. Dramatic milk- and dark-chocolate hues are outlined by creamy maple binding and a matching back mini wedge, with a complementary maple neck. Walnut' blend of brightness and projection with warm overtones produces an appealing complexity, especially over time, making it a preferred tonewood of many folks at Taylor. The 410ce-LTD also features a Sitka spruce top, and additional premium appointments include an abalone rosette and an all-gloss finish.
The heralded Dreadnought is the most traditional of all acoustics. By definition, it' a battleship of a guitar and Taylor' dreadnought pays tribute to that legacy------------and then some. The dreadnought' booming bass and articulate mids dare you to dig in and challenge your flatpicking prowess.
The Spring Limiteds come with a cutaway, Taylor's popular and intuitive Expression System pickup, and in a hardshell case.
Taylor Expression System
The Taylor ES delivers an amplified tone that will satisfy the most demanding pro player, yet makes it simple for anyone to plug in and sound great. The Expression System incorporates three different magnetic sensors. Two strategically placed Dynamic Body Sensors affixed to the underside of the soundboard capture the complex nuances of the top's vibration, while a Dynamic String Sensor mounted beneath the fretboard extension registers string and neck vibration. The preamp boosts the pickup signal cleanly, without the need for artificial EQ "coloration". The balanced, low-impedance signal the Expression System produces can run direct into a mixer or PA in most situations, and is free of distortion at almost any volume. Three simple, unintrusive onboard control knobs preserve the aesthetic beauty of your Taylor, yet allow you to easily adjust the volume, bass, and treble to suit your personal preferences and performance environment. The payoff is in the purity of high-fidelity amplified tone, unprecedented dynamic range, and extraordinary resistance to feedback and distortion. It enables all of the expressive subtleties of your playing to come through, just the way you intended.
