Special dreadnought constructed from rosewood and Lutz spruce.
Taylor’s redesigned rosewood/spruce 700 Series guitars, which includes this 710 Dreadnought acoustic-electric 2016 edition guitar, showcase an inspiring tonal and visual makeover. The result is a bolder musical voice with a refreshed visual aesthetic that blends rootsy appeal with warm, wood-rich details to give the series a distinctive musical personality. Tonal upgrades include a switch from Sitka spruce to Lutz spruce, which produces a powerful tonal response comparable to older, high-grade Adirondack spruce, and gives players a higher volume ceiling. Two other tone-enhancing refinements include Taylor’s new Performance bracing and the use of protein glue for the bracing and bridge. Together with the Lutz top they optimize the tonal response, capturing all of rosewood’s classic richness and strengthening the fundamental focus.
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. These guitars promise to give back to players everything they put in and then some. All models feature a full-gloss body and Taylor Expression System 2 electronics. The 710e Dreadnought aocustic-electric 2016 guitar comes with a Taylor deluxe hardshell case.
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.
