Overview

Whether you're picking or strumming, the Taylor 210e Dreadnought Acoustic-Electric Guitar responds especially well. A solid spruce top delivers the lively, defined sound Taylor is known for while the laminate Indian rosewood back and sides give this acoustic-electric dreadnought powerful projection and depth. ES-T electronics and a Taylor-devised active preamp provide great plugged-in tone and volume. The result is a high-fidelity, low-impedance signal for clear, acoustic amplified tone. Mahogany neck, ebony fretboard, and a 25-1/2" scale. A durable varnish finish offers protection, good looks, and a smooth feel.

A traditional shape refined, Taylor's dreadnought combines classic volume and bass response with the definitive Taylor sound: clear trebles and an open, airy midrange.

I just picked up this guitar this past weekend and I haven't put it down since. I tried every acoustic guitar in the fancy room at Guitar Center and this one smoked em' all. I played one chord and I was sold. The tone hands down beat every Gibson and Martin in the room. It had better low end presence without getting muddy at all. Every note shimmered. Not only did it sound great, but its about 1/2 the price of the Gibsons and Martins! The pickup system is pretty cool as well. Very classy looking. Go checkout these 100/200 series Taylors. You will be impressed. I promise!

Bought the guitar and right out of the box it had a warped neck. I tried it plugged in and it sounded ok, a bit thin, had to eq the bass all the way and turn down the highs. Still had a high ringy sound to it. It played ok other than the warped neck. I then switched to a Breedlove J350, what a difference, the Breedlove will blow the Taylor 210 out of the water, full sounding with great bass.

Great guitar

By Satisfied Taylor Owner

from New York City

Comments about Taylor 210e Dreadnought Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

This guitar's sound is simply amazing. I was debating whether to get a "lower-end" Taylor without solid back and sides, but to be completely honest, I could not justify spending nearly double the money to "upgrade" to the 300 series. I did try out the 300 series in person, but I was blown away by the sound of the 210e. It's very full and rich when strummed, although perhaps not as resonant if you have a primarily finger-picking style. The 214 may be better for that.The satin finish looks great, and in terms of usability, I find that having the satin finish on the neck makes sliding my hand significantly easier. All of my previous guitars had lacquer finishes, and oftentimes it'd be more difficult to slide around once my hands got a bit sweaty.The one downside that I saw with this guitar (and most Taylors, I think) is that the end pin where you attach the strap is rather shallow. I've heard that this is related to the design of integrated end pins/cable inputs, but you'd think that Taylor would be able to just increase the height of the end pin by 1/8 or 1/4 in. and resolve this problem.All in all, a great guitar. It's still hard to believe that I can pretty much buy 2 of these for the price of one 310ce. Unbelievable!

One Sweet Taylor!!!

By Wes

from Ramseur, NC

Comments about Taylor 210e Dreadnought Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

After several weeks of searching for the right guitar, I finally found this one and I am so glad that I bought it. I was looking for something specifically with a low action and this was perfect. I played on several Martin's and other Taylor's but this by far was the best for the money! I would recommend this guitar to anyone, whether you be a beginner or pro!!! Great guitar!!!

Taylor=the best

By Steve-gIEwJ

from Channahon, Il.

Comments about Taylor 210e Dreadnought Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

Absolutlely the best guitar you'll find for this money. Unbelievably sturdy guitar, crisp sound, no buzz whatsoever. Just can't believe how much rich tone this guitar has compared to much more expensive Martins or Gibsons.If you're looking at guitars just under this price range seriously think about waiting awhile and save up the couple hundred bucks more to get this one, if your looking at guitars hundreds of dollars above this price range, try playing this one. You might just leave some money in your pocket. Would've given 5's across the board if it had an onboard tuner.

Beautiful Guitar!

By scotth

from houston, tx

Comments about Taylor 210e Dreadnought Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

My wife TOTALLY surprised me by buying a nice Yamaha FG730 for Christmas. I was amazed. It was a huge upgrade from my 30-yr old nylon string. She said if I wanted to exchange it, she'd be ok. To be honest, I'd always dreamed of a Martin. A friend from high school 30 yrs ago had a D-28 and I remembered feeling special to have played that so many years ago. I did some in-depth, on-line comparisons, and narrowed my search down on paper to an inexpensive Martin (D1), and a Takamine. When I got to the store, I saw and played the Taylor. I played the others and went home to do more research. I soon realized I was paying a LOT for the Martin name, and to get what I 'wanted' would cost a mint. The Taylor 210e was my choice. I feel like I found a diamond; I do not feel at ALL like I settled. Comparisons of woods, construction and quality put the 210 above the D1; and the sound on the Martin didn't compare. I fall in love every time I open the case and pick her up. It sounds so rich and full. The action is good enough that even my 14-yr old heavy-metal-fan son was impressed! And the electronics make it a blast to hook up to an amp and pretend I�ۡ���m Tim McGraw or John Denver! I didn�ۡ���t need to pay to realize I could get a beautiful guitar that would make me smile the whole time I�ۡ���m playing it. Love it! Can�ۡ���t put her down! Thanks for the help, Sean, in N Houston.

Awesome Guitar

By Mia Johnson

from Minneapolis, MN

Comments about Taylor 210e Dreadnought Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

This guitar is absolutley amazing. Deftinaley worth the money. It has really good bass tones just acoustic but even better plugged in. Taylors use Elixr strings, part of the reason. You'll find that this guitar is pretty heavy which is a good quaility. Also the dreadnought factor rules. It improves the sound very well. Its super loud even without being plugged in. Not to mention the guitar is beautiful in itself. Defintaley the best purchase i've ever made on a guitar, I recommned it to anyone, or any Taylor in general. Its great in-between guitar. If you're a notibaly good guitar player but dont feel youre great enough to spend thousands of dollars

Love at 2nd sight...

By Gmaster

from Philippines

Comments about Taylor 210e Dreadnought Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

So, first of all Im not from the U.S. but I visit almost every year. I decided to buy the 210e in Portland after Ive been trying it out as I went to LA, San Francisco and Sacramento. So when I got to Portland, I was all set to buy it. IT WAS PERFECT! The thing was, I wasnt able to try it plugged in. So come Sunday. I was down in Seattle playing for a church group. Man. It sounded horrible because the pickuos were unbalanced. The Bass sound was generated so loud, the highs softer and the mid was not generated at all. So after the church gathering. I quickly went to the Guitar Center in Seattle and had it exchanged for a new one. They all thought the problem was weird but if you're down in Seattle they probably still have it now. So I can say I loved the 210e the second time around. hahaha

Unquestionably a great quality Taylor

By James Langfels

from Lexington, KY

Comments about Taylor 210e Dreadnought Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

I have been around high Taylors for a long time. I love the sound and the playability. When you hear a Taylor being played you can always tell it�ۡ���s a Taylor and this guitar is no exception. This guitar is a steal! I find it hard to tell a difference between the sound of the 210E and other high end Taylors that cost 2 - 3 times as much. I actually had a not so friendly (that�ۡ���s putting it nicely) assistant manager at guitar center sell me this guitar and normally would not give someone like this the satisfaction of selling me a guitar but I love it so much that I was not going to let a �ۡ��̏know it all�ۡ�ݕ�_ store AM stand in the way of my new Taylor. Not a fan of Guitar Center but am a fan of this Taylor. If you can get your hands on one then I would recommend jumping all over it!

KC Beck plays Taylor

By KC Beck

from Balad IQ

Comments about Taylor 210e Dreadnought Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

My name is KC BeckI am a country singer/ songwriter. I have played a bunch of guitars. Ovation, Applause, Fender, Ibanez, Tacamine, Gibson, Santa rosa, and Washburn. All sound good but when I picked up my first 110, and 210 Taylor I was shocked, the resonance was brilliant. I need a great guitar for the studio, and Taylor is that guitar. There is a good reason why every studio guitarist in Nashville has one.Taylor rocks, and you should too. Want to rock get a Taylor.

Very Good Guitar

By HarryT423

from College Station, TX

Comments about Taylor 210e Dreadnought Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

Really good, full sounding guitar. I have been playing for around 3 years and I wanted to save up and buy a quality acoustic guitar that would last me a long time. So far this guitar has not let me down. It can probably hold its own fairly well with the higher priced taylors, martins, and takamines. This guitar is VERY bassy. If you've played a lot of acoustic guitars you may know that some are very bright sounding and some have more bass. This one sounds very good but leans a little more on the bassy side of things. It's not a bad thing but some people may not like that sound. Overall a great guitar. I really like the action on it and the neck just fits my hand perfectly. Also for those who may be wondering, there is no gloss top on this model, however I have accidentally hit mine on the top a few times and its not that easy to scratch. Mine still looks brand new. Hope this helps!
