I prefer the Taylor "brightness" over the sound of most other acoustics, and man has my 710ce aged well. She has opened up beautifully, notes will ring for ages. Makes me smile just playing a simple open chord on this beauty :)
The warm, responsive tone of the Taylor 710CE guitar's solid Engelmann spruce top enhances the rich, full overtones of gorgeous solid Indian rosewood back and sides. The rosewood binding--single on the fretboard and combined with a 5-ply black-and-white pattern on the top--combined with an abalone rosette and gold tuners gives this acoustic electric dreadnought a distinctive and lush appearance. Expression System electronics feature patented Dynamic Sensors for more accurate tonal reproduction than you've ever heard. Onboard tone controls. Gloss finish is resistant to cold checking. Cutaway design for easy access to upper frets.
