Taylor

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

The all-solid Taylor experience continues with the updated 310 Sapele/Spruce Dreadnought Acoustic Guitar. Crisp, black binding flanks the satin-finish sapele back and sides and glossy Sitka spruce top, and then continues up the fretboard. The 300 Series is truly the performer’s workhorse, combining technology and craftsmanship with understated style.

Sapele/Sitka
The warm tone and open midrange of sapele balances the bright and snappy characteristics of a Sitka spruce top. The resulting combination provides the perfect guitar for strong, rhythmic playing styles.

Dreadnought
A traditional shape refined, we combine classic dreadnought volume and bass response with the definitive Taylor sound: clear trebles and an open, airy midrange that Bob Taylor's signature design accentuates. Dreadnoughts respond especially well to flatpicking or light-to-heavy strumming.

    Comments about Taylor 310 Sapele/Spruce 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 310 Sapele/Spruce 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
