Dreadnought players will love the sleek feel of the rounded radius armrest on the rosewood/spruce 810e DLX, especially since the body’s wider waist naturally causes the guitar to sit higher in a player’s lap and push the lower bout (and potentially one’s picking arm) higher as a result. The guitar boasts a bundle a tone-enhancing refinements that help unleash driving low-end power with a vibrant upper register. Even better, 800 Deluxe models feature premium Adirondack spruce bracing, which in this case will reward hearty flatpickers with extra dynamic range, bold top-end punch, a robust projection. Premium appointments include Gotoh 510 tuners, which sport a 21:1 gear ratio for ultra-fine tuning control, maple binding and back strip, rosewood top edge trim, a rosewood pickguard, mother-of-pearl Element fretboard inlays, a smoky ebony fretboard, and Taylor’s natural-sounding Expression System 2 pickup and preamp.
