Taylor quality, complexity and power with natural sounding electronics.
With dreadnought power, rich mid-range, access to the upper register and the Taylor Expression System®, the spruce and mahogany Taylor 2012 510ce Mahogany/Spruce Dreadnought Acoustic-Electric Guitar has a full, well-defined presence.
Engelmann Spruce/Tropical Mahogany
The Taylor 510ce is constructed of tropical mahogany back and sides with an Engelmann spruce top for a complex tone.
In 1997 Bob Taylor re-designed the Taylor Dreadnought by softening the curves at the top and bottom, refining its overall shape. The 510ce acoustic-electric responds well to flatpicking as well as light-to-heavy strumming.
Using proprietary pickup technology developed at Taylor, the Expression System® amplifies your 510ce acoustic-electric with a natural live sound. Onboard tone controls provide added flavor, or set flat for an uncolored, exceptionally-clean amplified sound. It’s your tone, amplified.
It’s complex, it’s beautiful, it can be yours, order today.

Comments about Taylor 2012 510ce Mahogany/Spruce Dreadnought Acoustic-Electric Guitar:
I do not own this guitar. I played it at a store. I am no pro guitar player but I know when a guitar is well built and sounds amazing.
It plays very nicely. The neck carve/ profile is really nice and comfortable. Frets are well dressed and overall good attention to detail setup-wise and cosmetically. Now let me get started on the real blow away. It sounds AMAZING!!! Full, clear, rich and loud. Too bad I don't have the cash to buy it or else I would have picked it up in a heartbeat from the first chord I strummed.
The only down side is that I am not a fan of the cosmetics. But that's an issue of personal preference. I don't like the tortoise shell binding on the neck and body and I don't like gold hardware.
I do feel the guitar is slightly over-priced but overall a solid instrument that will only sound better with age.
