The potent tone flatpickers and strummers love with excellent lows and killer highs.
The Taylor 2012 DN8e-L Rosewood/Spruce Dreadnought Left-Handed Acoustic-Electric Guitar is traditional, and by dreadnought definition, it’s a battleship of a guitar. Constructed of indian rosewood back and sides, topped with sitka spruce, the DN8e-L is a modern classic, giving you plenty of low-end growl and high-end sizzle.
Taylor evolved the DN8e-L in a way that honors the dreadnought’s enduring sonic heritage yet also refines the look and sound into a more modern package. The Taylor Dreadnought still boasts that powerful dreadnought tone that old school pickers expect, with deep lows and crisp highs, but with a voice that is more evenly balanced across the entire tonal spectrum. Pickers and strummers with an aggressive attack will love the blend of power and articulation of the DN8e-L, which allows for clear lead lines and crisp, driving rhythms.
A strong midrange that’s deeper in the low end and brighter on the top end than mahogany. Versatile and consistent, you can fingerpick it, strum it and flatpick it. Payers can rely on it to deliver.
Taylor’s groundbreaking Expression System (ES) was designed to naturally amplify the warm acoustic sound of your guitar. The ES is an all-magnetic acoustic guitar pickup system that works like a microphone to produce a pure signal and a warm, natural acoustic sound. When you plug in, you'll hear the sound of your guitar, not the sound of the pickup. No complicated controls. No tone simulators. Just a clean amplified acoustic guitar sound supported by three simple controls — volume, bass and treble.
