Overview

Players continue to discover solid African ovangkol' responsive, rosewood-like tone, which pairs well with Sitka spruce and can accommodate a range of playing styles. The Taylor 410 Ovangkol/Spruce Dreadnought Acoustic Guitar combines these tonewoods and some elegant appointments such as white binding that applies a crisp counterpoint against the gloss top and mottled brown hues of ovangkol.

Dreadnought (DN)
Body Width: 16" / Body Depth: 4 5/8" / Body Length: 20"
The potent tone flatpickers and strummers love.
The most traditional of guitar shapes, Bob Taylor has evolved the Taylor Dreadnought over time to honor its enduring sonic heritage yet also refine the look and sound into a more modern package. The Taylor Dreadnought still boasts that powerful dreadnought tone that old school pickers expect, with deep lows and crisp highs, but with a voice that, like every Taylor, is more evenly balanced across the entire tonal spectrum. Perhaps more than any other shape, the Dreadnought remains linked with roots music like bluegrass and folk, in part because of its traditional role in defining those sounds. Pickers and strummers with an aggressive attack will love our Dreadnought' blend of power and articulation, which allows for clear lead lines and crisp, driving rhythms.

Ovangkol
Origin: Tropical West Africa
Over a decade ago, Taylor introduced the guitar world to a sustainable tonewood known as ovangkol. An African relative of rosewood, it's a great sounding wood that shares many of rosewood's tonal properties, with a slightly fuller midrange and a top end that's not quite as bright as maple. Being lesser known than rosewood, ovangkol has been a sleeper hit over the years, asserting itself as an instant contender among unsuspecting players who test-drive a variety of Taylor models.
