OVERVIEW

A finely-made performance guitar with a solid spruce top, sapele back and sides, and full Taylor sound.

Taylor's 300 Series has introduced countless players to the pleasures of the all-solid-wood acoustic experience; it's the entry point to Taylor's USA-made instrument line. Players who step up to a 300 Series instrument will be rewarded with a guitar-for-a-lifetime that will only sound better with age. It doesn't take but a few strums to learn how the mix of tone woods, construction and appointments combine to make Taylor's famous playability, intonation and tone. The 300 Series has everything you need and nothing you don't need in a fantastic sounding and playing instrument.  

Body Shape
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 should serve you well.

Tone Wood
Pairing 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 Sapele back and sides complement the top with a sound that's comparable to mahogany but with a slightly brighter sound featuring top-end shimmer, and balance across the tonal spectrum. Sapele responds well to a variety of playing styles and fits nicely into an instrument mix.

What sets Taylor Guitars apart? Unmatched build quality, the most stable and playable necks, a vast array of tonal options, eco-conscious and ethically-sourced raw materials, and a lifetime of service and support.

      Comments about Taylor 300 Series 310 Dreadnought Acoustic Guitar:

      I have a ~2006 model. The color of the spruce top has darkened considerably to a nice golden color, as all spruce eventually does. The sound has opened up a lot. When I first bought it, the sound was very bright and piercing at any picking position. It has relaxed a lot and has become quite versatile.

      It's true, though, that this is not a booming dreadnaught. If you really need volume, look elsewhere. Especially if you're playing with others, you can get a better deal for volume. In a band setting, intonation is more important than timbre, and there are plenty of playable, less expensive guitars on the market right now that have good playability and intonation. I personally don't need volume since I normally play alone and don't sing particularly loudly.

      But once this guitar opens up, you have a very expressive tool. Also, it's worth mentioning that the guitar is built extremely well. For what it's worth, I use John Pearse medium strings, and this guitar loves it.

          Comments about Taylor 300 Series 310 Dreadnought Acoustic Guitar:

          I get to play a D18 alongside my 310 in noisy country/bluegrass jams and can compare them. The 310 is an early riser it can make clear tone with much less energy input than the D 18 so initially the 310 shines much brighter. When things get a bit more intense the 310 holds its own up to a point then loses its ability to articulate individual tones slightly before the D 18. So the D 18 is a little harder to wake up but stays in the game a little longer. the 310 is eaiser to play and seems more intuitive than the Martin.
          Change the set-up even incrementally and mix or match strings and things could change. So put the final stake through the heart of the Martin/ Taylor debate. Its all relative. Now lets work on the Ginger/ Maryanne thing for a while
