For many guitar players, Indian rosewood is what it’s all about. Taylor offers this classic tonewood in three premium classes, starting with the 700 Series. The Taylor 710ce Rosewood/Spruce Dreadnought Acoustic-Electric Guitar has a spruce top and Indian rosewood back and sides. With the addition of the Taylor Expression System® and cutaway, this dreadnought exhibits a rich, full tone with the versatility needed for live performances. It also features rosewood binding, mother-of-pearl dot inlays, abalone rosette and Venetian cutaway that make this Taylor a timeless statement of tone and taste.
The warm, responsive tone of the spruce top enhances the rich, full overtones of Indian rosewood in this classic tonewood pairing.
The Taylor Dreadnought is a focused guitar with plenty of presence, recently redesigned to be even more assertive. It’s the traditional choice for the traditional player; the model to drive with a heavy pick.
Using proprietary pickup technology developed at Taylor, the Expression System amplifies your guitar with an unrivaled, natural live sound. Onboard tone controls provide added flavor, or set flat for an uncolored, exceptionally-clean amplified sound. It’s your tone. Amplified.
The finish used to create this guitar's lustrous gloss top, back, and sides was developed at Taylor for maximum durability and resistance to cold-checking. This ultraviolet-cured finish is also more environmentally friendly than traditional lacquer finishes. Available in natural finish.

Comments about Taylor 710ce Rosewood/Spruce Dreadnought Acoustic-Electric Guitar:
I bought this guitar about one week ago and I couldn't be happier. It was a tough choice since this is serious money in question. I struggled for months before I finally made my pick which I believe was the right way to go. I was between the 710ce, a Gibson Hummingbird (bird) and a Martin DCPA1. However the Taylor definitely came on top in sound volume, sound quality and build. I went to guitar center in SF and literally locked myself in a room with these three monsters until I made up my mind. The fretboard on my 710 is sick, super quiet and smooth, the feel of the indian rosewood is amazing and it really just plays itself. The lower tones sound really loud, something I didn't get from the other two and the looks of the 710 are unparalleled (in my opinion). Taylors tend to be very classy with the discrete plug-in and EQ. At the same time, the art on the bird's pick-guard made me hesitate a lot when I saw it, just thinking it would be there for the rest of its life. I know it's still very soon to be judging on how the guitar ages but I'm sure it won't disappoint... I'll be submitting another review in a couple of years to let you guys know. In conclusion, I had to save a bunch of money, fly up to SF from Mexico, carry the guitar around and bring it back.. I do not regret my choice. This was really the way to go, at least for my playing style and interests! And the 2012 model really has a great look, it's not the one you see on this page's display right now (04/12) it has a burned out finish, super slick! Have a look at Taylor's webpage and see for yourself. If this guitar is one of your next purchase options, think no more!
