The Taylor 210ce Left-Handed Acoustic-Electric Lefty Guitar in Natural combines affordability, quality, and a timeless tonewood recipe to produce a guitar that punches well above its weight.
A Solid Sitka Spruce Top gets things started on the right foot. This tonewood knows how to push out sound better than any other wood on the planet. It has the perfect stiffness, density, and flexibility to produce tone.
The back and sides are made from Layered Rosewood (also called laminate). Using layered woods cuts material costs down AND adds some extra durability to the mix. Yes, all guitars featuring all Solid Woods are typically considered more desirable but, for some context, every Gibson ES-335 ever made featured layered (laminate) woods for the body material. So, if a coveted, legendary guitar is made from laminate, how bad could it really be? And hearing is believing. You'd never imagine this guitar DOESN'T have solid back and sides since it sounds so great.
The neck is made from Tropical Mahogany and carved to the typical Taylor Slim C Profile. This neck has made thousands of Taylor Player's happy. In fact, many other brand-loyalists still appreciate how comfortable the Taylor Necks can be. The fingerboard is made from West African Crelicam Ebony. 25.5" scale length and 1 and 11/16" Nut Width give this neck a familiar feel.
The Taylor Expression System 2 is a thing of beauty. This and the Anthem from LR Baggs are about as good an electronic system as we have seen. The lay-out and ease of use you'll experience with Taylor's Expression System will cut down on the time it takes to find your sound and get you back to playing. It works great in mixers, acoustic amps, even some electric amps, bass amps, PA systems, and straight in a DAW.
A hard guitar to argue with for the money! Well, don't argue with a guitar, you won't win. Guitars are always right :) oh wait ... this one's a Lefty! And as you probably know, lefties are rare so act fast if you have been jones-ing for one!
