OVERVIEW

A solid-wood dreadnought with premium amplification included!

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.

This guitar rattles the phlegm in my chest yet can still sing like a songbird. The salesguy very adamant that I could not do better for the money and I believed every word of his spiel... Yeah, it might actually be THAT good, maybe its even BETTER?!?! This is a great guitar as expected, the sound is rich and intriguing providing a wide array of options for sonic expression. The lows are fabulous with a set of EXP mediums. The highs were silky smooth with the elixirs so I may try EXP lights to get a better blend. It is well built, though simply appointed. The action is a touch high and moderately difficult to play. But I have strong hands and I am used to an even more difficult guitar... There are much cheaper guitars that are easier to play, like the Yamaha I didn't buy because of how this Taylor sounds!!BATTERY! The battery is easy to change on this, a 2008 model. You no longer have to remove the strings but simply pop off a little cap at the bass of the guitar and slide a new battery in... Takes like 5 seconds to swap the battery.Bottom line is this guitar is sweet, really sweet. I can say, assuredly, it is the best guitar I have ever played. I greatly preferred it over equivalently priced guitars from all brands including Martin, Breedlove, Takamine, and a few others... Things I don't like:I don't like the tuners, they seem cheap. The guitar is very basic in appearance. Ummm, thats all I can possibly imagine not liking about this great instrument!

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

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!

Taylor=the best

By Steve-gIEwJ

from Illinois

See all my reviews

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.

KC Beck plays Taylor

By KC Beck

from Balad IQ

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.

Awesome buy

By cccg03

from Richland, WA

I bought this guitar about 9 months ago (President's day, to be exact) and I absolutely love it. I only just turned 18, but I've played a lot of guitars and Taylor guitars just seem to be the best, hence the price. Maybe the only thing that's kinda bothersome is that my B string goes a little flat after jamming for a while. I wish the guitar would've come with an onboard tuner, but I'll live. And when I put the time into figuring out how, I'll lower the action a smidgeon.It came with light elixers, which were lovely for a while, but I play with mediums so after a couple weeks I broke the A and G strings (but everybody knows the G string always breaks) Other than those few things, the Indian Rosewood on the back and sides is beautiful and the ebony fretboard is perfect. Now I just need a Taylor solid body and one of their Koas and I'll be set for life.

Wow! Nice for the price!

By osu122975-t6V77

Just bought this a few days ago. You won't find a nicer sounding acoustic guitar w/ electronics for the money. Very smooth tone w/ a lot of bite. IMHO, it ain't worth the extra cash unless you really have an extremely sensative ear and are looking for something specific. Taylor does a wonderful job manufacturing these guitars. Check out their factory tour and compare it to Martin's factory tour. Taylor's got it goin on!

Very Good Guitar

By HarryT423

from College Station, TX

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!

Yes! Amazing Guitar! No need for a tuner!

By Mark-gvvFW

from Camarillo, CA

I was looking at some less expensive acoustics when I thought "What's the big deal with these Taylors?" and I picked one up. Now I know! With this it was like the heavens opened up and I could hear angels sing when I strummed this guitar. Such sustain and a real boomy bass tone, and the neck is incredible...Being mainly an electric player till now, I hadn't heard anything quite like that. (Don't ask me why it took me 20+ years to buy an acoustic?!)I went back again and again to keep playing it. After plugging it in the 2nd time (the first amp didn't sound too good) the last time I knew it had to be mine. I sleep better knowing it's under my bed and not in someone else's greasy hands.

Taylor 210-E -Fabulous

By Old Musician

from Williamson, WV

See all my reviews

I have been playing now 46 years. I own Gibsons, Yamahas, Fenders, but the Taylors seem to be the best sounding of all my instruments. I have played all the guitars in the Taylor line up. I just fell in love with the 210-E. It had a fabulous sound comparable to a Martin D-28, but the neck felt so much better.

I have played guitar most of my life and I am now 60 years old. I have played professionally and just for my own satisfaction. I have owned and do own Gibsons, Fenders, etc. Like many musicians, I constantly visit music stores and see what is new. I picked up a Taylor 210e and tuned it up. I noticed the quality of the tone and was flabbergasted. I spent about an hour and a half picking the 210e. The sound was way beyond what I expected for a guitar in this price range. Before leaving the store I bought the guitar and have now owned it for 2 years. I have played it everyday and still like it as much today as I did the day I firs played it. The feel, sound, and quality of the instrument exceeded my expectations.
