Taylor 210ce-DLX Deluxe Dreadnought Acoustic-Electric Guitar
A Deluxe Take on a Taylor Favorite: The Taylor 210ce-DLX Deluxe Dreadnought Acoustic-Electric Guitar. The back and sides of the 210ce-DLX Deluxe Dreadnought Acoustic-Electric Guitar are crafted from layered Indian rosewood and paired with a solid Sitka spruce soundboard, just as the standard 210ce, but features a full-gloss body and a matching inner veneer to cater to this guitar's upscale appearance (the standard 210ce has a satin finished back/gloss top). Tonally, rosewood laminate and Sitka spruce give the 210ce Deluxe it's clear, well-balanced tonality across the entire spectrum with a massive acoustic voice imparted by the dreadnought body. The Taylor dreadnought body style is the ideal shape for flatpickers and strummers--refined for the modern era. This body style is designed to deliver incredible tone for guitarists with a hard picking attack and produces a deep low end with driving rhythms, allowing the guitar to maintain it's overall tonal balance while keeping the low end from getting “muddy”. On top of it all, the body of the 210ce-DLX Deluxe features white binding and a smooth-lined venetian cutaway for enhanced accessibility to those higher frets. The sapele neck on the Taylor 210ce-DLX Deluxe is topped with an ebony fingerboard and features beautiful small diamond inlays as opposed to the dot inlays used on the standard 210ce.
Typically, the 200 Series features the Taylor ES-T electronics, but the 210ce-DLX comes fully equipped with the top-of-the-line Taylor Expression System (ES), generally reserved for the higher end Taylor models. The Taylor Expression System pairs a top quality pickup system with a professional grade preamp and employs revolutionary Dynamic sensing technology, allowing the natural acoustic sound of the 210ce Deluxe to be faithfully amplified, just as it should be. Because top vibration has a huge impact on the sound of an acoustic guitar, the proprietary Dynamic Body Sensor captures those soundboard vibrations by strategically placing a network of surface-sensing, magnetic microphones under the guitar top while the patented Dynamic String Sensor is mounted underneath the fingerboard to measure the vibrations of the strings and then turn them into an electronic signal... the result—a beautiful, organic acoustic sound when plugging the 210ce-DLX into an any amplifier or direct box via standard 1/4” instrument cable or for an even greater signal level (with no loss of frequencies, even with long cables) plug directly into recording interface or mixing console via balanced line level input (TRS to XLR cable required, no Direct Box required for this application). The ES also features simplistic volume, bass and treble controls for precise tonal shaping while the unobtrusive design doesn't take away from the guitar's aesthetics.
This attractive deluxe package is completed by a Taylor standard hardshell case (rather then the hardbag included with the standard 200 series acoustics) to provide this 210ce-DLX with superior protection.
