Gorgeous Whiskey Sunburst finish tops off an already special dreadnought constructed from rosewood and Lutz spruce.
The toasted honey-brown hues of this Taylor Western Sunburst top lend neo-vintage aesthetic appeal to this rosewood/Lutz spruce dreadnought. The Lutz top revs up its tonal output rivaling the dynamic response of a more traditional Adirondack spruce top. The rosewood back and sides contribute a warm low end balanced by strong treble shimmer. The neck sports a unique feel for a dreadnought thanks to the slightly shorter 24-7/8-in. scale length and slotted headstock. These combine to translate into a slinkier, more intimate playing experience. It makes bending strings a joy and invites singer-songwriters up the neck. Another subtle distinction, a V-carve neck profile, largely retains Taylor’s sleek profile with a slightly thicker dimension that might appeal to fans of traditional dreadnoughts.
Amongst its warm aesthetic details are koa binding, a herringbone-style rosette featuring Douglas fir with maple/black accents, bias-cut Douglas fir top trim, a “Reflections” fretboard inlay in pale green abalone and a "weathered brown" pickguard. Taylor’s onboard ES2 pickup and preamp wire the guitar for a natural-sounding plug-and-play experience.
Hardshell case included.
The most traditional of guitar shapes, Bob Taylor has evolved the Taylor Dreadnought over time to honor its enduring sonic heritage yet also refine 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, like every Taylor, is more evenly balanced across the entire tonal spectrum. Perhaps more than any other shape, the dreadnought remains linked with roots music like bluegrass and folk, in part because of its traditional role in defining those sounds. Pickers and strummers with an aggressive attack will love our dreadnought’s blend of power and articulation, which allows for clear lead lines and crisp, driving rhythms.
Taylor’s refined take on the classic dreadnought shape produces a robust voice with low-end power, a snappy midrange, and strong, clear treble notes, retaining the essence of the balanced Taylor sound. The guitar will appeal to flatpickers and lovers of traditional guitar shapes and tones.
A naturally occurring hybrid of Sitka and White spruce, Lutz grows in climate zones between where Sitka and White spruce are found. (Sitka grows in more coastal areas, while White spruce thrives in interior regions.) Lutz has is considered very adaptive within those microclimates, which can yield properties that are superior to either species alone.
In terms of acoustic response, Lutz blends the positive characteristics of Sitka and White spruce and its close cousin, Engelmann spruce. The Lutz that Taylor uses for the 500 Series tends to exhibit characteristics of Adirondack spruce. The result is powerful sonic horsepower that translates into strong volume, projection and tonal richness.
