Taylor 400 Series Acoustic Guitars

Indian rosewood or African ovangkol? Both deliver full-range tone profiles. Rosewood’s voice tends to emphasize the low and high ends of the tonal spectrum, with an extra splash of treble sparkle, while ovangkol will lean toward a stronger midrange presence. Let your ears be the judge. If it comes down to looks, you’ve got ovangkol’s golden-brown hues and dot inlays versus rosewood’s chocolate complexion and, new for 2018, a Renaissance fretboard inlay. Whichever flavor you prefer, signature Taylor playability will help you sound your best.

Taylor 410e-R

$2399.99

Taylor 410e-R

This non-cutaway Dreadnought blends a classic body style with the equally classic tonewood pairing of rosewood and spruce to offer players the quintessential acoustic workhorse guitar, especially for flatpickers and strummers looking for strong tonal output, good low-end growl, and strong, clear trebles. An easy-playing Taylor neck makes chord progressions and lead runs a breeze all the way up the fretboard, while the slightly narrower 1-11/16-inch nut width makes barre chords less of a stretch. The Expression System® 2 pickup captures the potent Dreadnought sound with appealing warmth and clarity. The guitar features Taylor’s Performance bracing, a full-gloss body, Italian acrylic dot inlays, white binding, a 3-ring rosette, and Taylor nickel tuners. The guitar ships in a Taylor deluxe hardshell case.

Taylor 412e-R

This fingerstyle-friendly Grand Concert boasts the classic tonewood pairing of solid Indian rosewood back and sides with a Sitka spruce top, and like other Grand Concert body styles, features a slightly shorter 24-7/8-inch scale length to make reaching and fretting notes easier. The compact body is matched by a sonic footprint that will keep the overtones in check, giving the guitar clear tonal definition that works well both for solo and ensemble playing. Taylor’s Expression System® 2 pickup delivers natural-sounding amplified tone for gigging or recording. Aesthetic details include white binding, Italian acrylic dot fretboard inlays, a three-ring rosette, and glossy finish back and sides with a gloss top. The guitar ships in a Taylor deluxe hardshell case.
