Indian rosewood is one of the most popular and musically expressive tonewoods in the world. Among Taylor’s solid-wood guitars, rosewood is normally reserved for the 700, 800 and 900 Series, but the 400 Rosewoods now feature rosewood - with lustruous gloss finishes - in a more accessible price range. The non-cutaway 410e-R Rosewood blends the time-honored Taylor Dreadnought shape with a classic rosewood and spruce tonewood pairing to offer players a quintessential acoustic workhorse guitar, especially for flatpickers and strummers looking for strong tonal output, good low-end growl, and strong, clear trebles.
The 410e-R ships in a Taylor deluxe hardshell case for optimal fit and protection.
The Dreadnought is one of the most traditional acoustic guitar shapes. Taylor's version has been refined to blend its trademark robust low-end tone with a snappy midrange and brilliant treble notes, producing a pleasing balance of power and articulation. If you're a flatpicker or strummer who likes to dig in on lead or rhythm, the Dreadnought will serve you well.
A guitar's top is the primary filter and distributor of vibrating string energy through the guitar, which means it has a huge impact on its sound. Sitka Spruce is the most prevalent guitar top wood of the modern era. It blends stiffness and elasticity in just the right proportions which translates into broad dynamic range with crisp articulation. Solid Indian rosewood back and sides complement the Sitka top with sound that's made it one of the most popular tone woods ever. Rosewood produces the strongest bass response among the tone woods commonly used for guitars, with a slightly scooped midrange. Rosewood's sweeping frequency range - deep lows that assert a throaty growl with sparkling highs - rings out with bell-like, high-fidelity clarity. It yields a full-range acoustic voice with complex overtones and extended sustain.
Expression System 2
Taylor's ES2 is a revolutionary pickup design that delivers the latest in Taylor’s ongoing innovation in acoustic guitar amplification. The heart of the Expression System 2 is Taylor’s patented behind-the-saddle pickup, which features three uniquely positioned and individually calibrated pickup sensors. The location of the sensors enables a more dynamic range of acoustic sound to be captured than ever before. Together with Taylor’s custom-designed “professional audio”-grade preamp, this system produces exceptional amplified tone and responsiveness. On stage through a PA, plugged into your favorite acoustic amplifier, or direct into recording software, the Expression System 2 faithfully conveys the voice of your Taylor guitar. The Taylor Expression System 2 operates through a proprietary 9-volt battery compartment and easy-to-use volume, bass and treble controls.

Comments about Taylor 400 Series 410e-R Rosewood Dreadnought Acoustic-Electric Guitar:
Dropped off my guitar to get some work done so I went and played some guitars for awhile. I picked this up and I have to admit she is an eye catcher not only that she played just as she looked! I've owned a Taylor before so this isn't new to me but I started really gettin' down and doing some playing. After about an hour this was ordered. Rosewood back and sides with spruce top, REALLY? This has an AWESOME TONE and play's like butter at an affordable price tag. This has all the low, mids and perfect highs to make this one fun Guitar to play and I can't put it down. The above description is wrong, there is no Back & side: Ovangkol ,The nut is 1 11/16. Nice deluxe case too! Wasn't an overwhelming Taylor fan but this made a little bit more of one.
