OVERVIEW

Solid wood construction; advanced electronics; and a clear, distinctive tone.

At its price point, you'll have trouble finding another acoustic-electric that offers the Taylor 310ce's level of performance and innate beauty. A solid sapele back and sides temper the crystalline response of the solid Sitka spruce top which has scalloped X bracing for maximum projection. The satin body and brilliant gloss top finishes are beautifully applied. Deluxe appointments include an Indian rosewood headstock veneer and ebony fingerboard and bridge. The Expression System electronics incorporates a Dynamic Sensor that captures body and top vibrations that bring the beautifully balanced sound of the 310ce to the fore when amplified.

FEATURES
  • Solid Sitka spruce top
  • Solid sapele back and sides
  • Ebony fretboard and bridge
  • Mahogany neck
  • Expression System electronics
  • Indian rosewood headstock veneer

310ce=love

Comments about Taylor 310ce Dreadnought Cutaway Acoustic-Electric Guitar (2011 Model):

I have been playing this guitar for about 3 years now and couldn't be happier. The model i have does NOT have the new pickup system, but the older fishman electronics. I play it live and i cannot get over how sweet and true the bass is and how toneful the high notes are. Unplugged or plugged, this guitar is worth the money. its probably worth more than the money you will play. The square shouldered dreadnought shape is comfortable and and resonanates well. dont let its "plain" appearance turn you off. it is a beautiful guitar, but even more so up close. If you have the chance PLAY ONE. You wont regret it.Use the stock elixr strings. the produce the best tone and last the longest by far. after that either the nanoweb or polyweb sound great. If your considering it, GO FOR IT. I cant say enough.

this was the sweetest.

By Brad DeCecco

from Brooklyn, NY

Comments about Taylor 310ce Dreadnought Cutaway Acoustic-Electric Guitar (2011 Model):

There's a reason so many pop, country, rock and folk bands use Taylor's I guess. This one isn't the top of the line for the brand - by any means, but the sound was the best, hands down. So who cares if it has Abalone inlays?
Not much in the way of features, I didn't even plug it in because it's so amazing unplugged. Pretty plain looking and it would be nicer if it had some binding on the fretboard but who needs features when it sounds like this!?
I haven't even gotten mine yet but I am told they are among the best for quality out of the box. I gave it a 9 because it feels a little thin on the back, like you could punch through it if you tried, but if that's how they get the sound, I don't care.
I sat in a music store for three hours today - played everything from a starter guitar all the way up to a high end acoustic, and I kept coming back to the Taylor 310. It's not the prettiest, not ugly either. But I like definition in the mids, easy action and a good - almost separate bass sound. This guitar has the perfect balance of sound to me. The high notes are clear and dstinct and the bass booms but doesn't compete with the highs. All the Martins I played felt muddy - like the low-mids drowned out any og the high strings. This is a powerful, well balanced guitar that rang with sustain for hours, by far better than anything I picked up. And I wanted to love a Martin. I played like 20 guitars. Strangely enough - the second best I played? A Washburn. It sounded better than many of the Martins, so def check them out if you can find them. Really well made for an Indonesian instrument.

awsome guitar

By Adrian1trk

from Dallas,TX

Comments about Taylor 310ce Dreadnought Cutaway Acoustic-Electric Guitar (2011 Model):

I've got this guitar delivered last week and I'm more than pleased with the purchase, the sound is great and playability is top notch. I'd wish it had a nut adjuster (if it has one I didn't see it). Once I plugged in I could not believe the sound of those basses coming out of my speakers, I can see me playing it for a long time.

Professional Quality - Right Outta Da Box

By Matt Skinner

from Fairfield, CA

See all my reviews

Comments about Taylor 310ce Dreadnought Cutaway Acoustic-Electric Guitar (2011 Model):

Taylor's new ad in Acoustic Guitar Magazine says, "The kind of age-old craftsmanship than can only come from an age-old craftsman. And his helper robot." I love that. I had no reservations about ordering a Taylor from Musician's Friend without ever having played it. I'd played enough of them in several stores to know they're consistency. Right outta da box...tone, tone, and more tone. Per the serial number, the particular guitar I received was built just over two months ago. I CANNOT WAIT to hear what it sounds like over the years as it opens up and gains character. Clear highs, pronounced mids, and little bit of boom. I love it. I'm so thankful I bought this. I gave it a 4.5 on features only because it would be nice to have perhaps a abalone rosette, like on the 500 series. The concentric rings are a little plain, but any serious guitarist knows that looks ALWAYS take a back seat to tone. Put this "workhorse" to work for you today.

Taylor all the way.

By Ricky-KA8JQ

from Orlando, FL

Comments about Taylor 310ce Dreadnought Cutaway Acoustic-Electric Guitar (2011 Model):

After playing many and I mean many guitars over the years. I was finally able to afford getting what I consider to be a dream guitar. After a long search, I opted for the 310CE and have loved everything about it. The clarity and feel are top notch. It is my go to acoutic guitar for everything. In studio the sound is great, allowing the subtle use of efx to be merely accents as intended. On stage, this guitar is a solid perfomer. Always dependable always there. We have dubbed him as the newest member of our family. We call him what else, "Taylor". Last year we even decided he needed a Christmas gift, so we got him some new effects to play with. I this this year we'llbe getting Taylor a brand new custom strap.If you are not sure about this quality hand made guitar, let me calm your fears. You will fall in love with this guitar so much that you too will be gettiing it gifts for Christmas , birthdays and anniversaries.

Comments about Taylor 310ce Dreadnought Cutaway Acoustic-Electric Guitar (2011 Model):

I bought my 310 in 2000 and it cost me everything I had at the time, but I have never regretted it for a single second. If you are trying to decide whether to get a cheaper guitar or save up for a taylor, you will kick yourself for wasting any money on something cheaper, because the quality will not ever compare. I saved and saved and saved, and now I have a guitar that I will never have to replace.

Where do I start??

Comments about Taylor 310ce Dreadnought Cutaway Acoustic-Electric Guitar (2011 Model):

I've owned the 310ce for about 5 years. The first gripe I had was the fingerboard being too wide. The pitch (distance) between the strings is not standard. I never got used to it, but the sound is indeed great.The main problem was not being able to get the AA batteries out. The inner one will not come out unless you tap (hard) the guitar against the floor. I had to do this because the batteries were going dead - they were not shutting off after the plug was pulled out.I guess because of this banging on the floor, one of the pick-ups is lose and tends to squeal.So now I have the dilemma of what to do with this 'great sounding when miced, not working well when plugged in - guitar'.Maybe I should get the new 210ce and keep this one as a spare? I tried it in the store and it sounds just as good.

the perfect acoustic

By Ian

Comments about Taylor 310ce Dreadnought Cutaway Acoustic-Electric Guitar (2011 Model):

I finally picked up my first Taylor after many years of debating whether to get a Martin, Ibanez Artwood, Seagull, etc. The thing that spoke to me about the 310ce was the timber and tone that it instantly projects. Granted, the stock Elixir strings always breathe new life into any guitar, but these Taylors have a fit and finish like no other. It seems to fit in my hands perfectly and has amazing action and intonation for an acoustic guitar. I played various Martin's and although I'm still a huge fan, I think they have an overall warmer and tradional folky tone. The Taylor's seem to be pushing the modern envelope, and the first model of their higher end is no exception. I personally love the sound of mahogany and how much bass you get, and I prefer this over the 410ce that I played. I wouldn't say it's the best value as I've recently read that Tropical Mahogony and Sapele have shot up in price over the last few years. However, you will not be disappointed and Taylor makes sure that you'll love this guitar for years to come. I already played it out plugged in through a PA and it sounds very natural, unlike most electric acoustics. If you are on the boarderline of dropping a paycheck or 2, I would easily recommend their 100 and 200 series guitars. I think they are the ultimate value in dollars for tone and construction. Although they are laminated back and sides, you can hardly tell and they project amazingly well. So consider those models as well, especially now since they come in the CE cutaway style. But for excellent all around playability, tone, strumming chords or soloing in the higher registers, give the 310ce a long, hard look and you won't be disappointed.

Saving Up For The

Comments about Taylor 310ce Dreadnought Cutaway Acoustic-Electric Guitar (2011 Model):

I'm saving up my pretty pennies for this beauty. I've played guitars priced 4 times as much, and they don't hold a candle to the 310CE. I cannot wait to have this workhorse in my possession. The tone and sustain are unbelievable, and the satin finish is nice, too. You will be VERY happy with this one.

Comments about Taylor 310ce Dreadnought Cutaway Acoustic-Electric Guitar (2011 Model):

I bought this guitar a little under a year ago. I wouldn't trade it for any guitar in the world. It has great sound when it's plugged in with the taylor expression system as well as when it's unplugged. I guarantee you will be happy with this guitar. When compared to competition such as martin's they are cheaper and have much better quality and tone. screw martin buy taylor

I purchased the 310ce a while ago. It sounds amazing, and plays like a dream. It has low, fast action. Keep your Taylor in it's case, unless your playing it. You don't want the dog to chew on this one!

I originally wanted a Martin HD-28VE. Then I played a Taylor 310CE and was blown away by the sound and feel of this guitar. It is a lot cheaper too. Neil Young played a 310Ce at the Live8 show in Toronto. He bought his first Taylor (Taylor 855CE) in 1978.

Comments about Taylor 310ce Dreadnought Cutaway Acoustic-Electric Guitar (2011 Model):

For about two years I have really been on the hunt for "THE" guitar. Man, I went to the local music store and picked up the 310CE and it was love at first note. The set up was perfect, adding to its smooth and immediate playability. The tone was deep, and it sang with richness and clear trebles and highs. As a songwriter, I look for a guitar that really invites me to write and be inspired, and this guitar did the job. Every time you pick it up you receive a warm welcome, what an amazing instrument. This guitar sings along with you, it's like having a second voice. Buy it! You'll love it!

A Great Guitar Does Not Have to Cost a Fortune

By Quid3

Comments about Taylor 310ce Dreadnought Cutaway Acoustic-Electric Guitar (2011 Model):

About 4 years ago, after playing a cheap Yamaha acoustic for a couple of years, I bit the bullet and purchased a Martin D28. While that guitar was loud and brassy, and a pleasure to look at, ... I typically found that its play didn't warrant its price (around $1,800 at the time). The action was factory set way to high, and the guitar was 'stiff' to play.A few months ago, I walked into a music store and sat down with a Taylor 310. It was love at first note. I could not believe the feel, sound, and responsiveness of this guitar. The Martin went up for sale, and I purchased the Taylor almost immediately.There is no reason to look any further for me. The Taylor 310 gives me everything I need as a player and hobbyist... and at a price that is very attractive.

So very easy to play...

By Tony Coffman

Comments about Taylor 310ce Dreadnought Cutaway Acoustic-Electric Guitar (2011 Model):

I have had this guitar for about eight months, and enjoy it more each time I pick it up. It is very easy to play, the feel of it, well, it is just playable. I love the sound from the Dreadnought size. I am not a beginner, but certainly am not a musician either (yet), but this guitar makes me sound better than I proably am. I just can't say enough about it.
This guitar has amazing electronics in it. The Taylor expression system sounds great, even on my cheaper acoustic amp. One of their "plain" guitars as far as extras go, this is beauitful guitar.
I compared this to a comparable Martin in price and found this easier to play and I liked the sound from it more than I did the Martin.

Amazing guitar

Comments about Taylor 310ce Dreadnought Cutaway Acoustic-Electric Guitar (2011 Model):

Having played for 15 years now, I have learned what a guitar should do and how it should sound. Plugged into a sound system direct, or unplugged in the living room, this is the clearest sounding guitar I have ever played. Simply beautiful is the only way to describe the tone of this guitar. Crisp ringing highs, and enough bottom end to pop your subs if you're not careful. I loved this guitar from the moment I picked it up. It absolutely the best acoustic guitar I have ever owned. I'll definaetly buy another Taylor if I ever need to upgrade.

Comments about Taylor 310ce Dreadnought Cutaway Acoustic-Electric Guitar (2011 Model):

i am a guitar collecter, i have many martins and taylors. This taylor is a great investment. If you like a bright sound and tinny feel this guitar rocks. Taylor is great quality and if you own one hold on to it. Any taylor is great, i also have a 110 series and it sounds just as good, just not a fancy in looks and it's a dreadnought not a cutaway. So buy this puppy as soon as you can.

Comments about Taylor 310ce Dreadnought Cutaway Acoustic-Electric Guitar (2011 Model):

I have owned this guitar for about 8 months now. It is truly a high quality instrument. I compared it to similar priced Martins when I was shopping, and I think it has a brighter and fuller sound. The craftsmanship of this guitar is as good as it gets. I do a lot of home recording with a Boss BR1180 and usually mix a line in and a miked combination of this guitar and it sounds great. Overall I think Taylor has the best look, sound, and quality.

Wow! What a fantastic guitar.

By PastorJ-qofCc

from Mandan, ND

Comments about Taylor 310ce Dreadnought Cutaway Acoustic-Electric Guitar (2011 Model):

It has been my dream as far as musical intruments are concerned to own a Taylor. I did the research on the ES electronics and they are everything Taylor says they are with sound and flexibility. I basically play through a pa and have minimal eq and the tone is pure and beautiful. The guitar unplugged sounds beautiful. As good as or better then anything I have ever played. It looks great the tuning keys hold well. The cutaway is super for access to the top. The case is even great the guitar fits like a glove. Worth the money hands down. Check out Taylor's advice on humidifying to take care of your investment. I told my son when he was old enough he could have it but only if I can buy another one.
