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, Renaissance fretboard inlays, white binding, a 3-ring rosette, and Taylor nickel tuners. The guitar ships in a Taylor deluxe hardshell case.
