With its classic sitka spruce top, chosen for its versatility in dynamic range and style, and mahogany body, the Taylor 510 Dreadnought acoustic guitar is a smart choice for players seeking clarity and sharp response. Mahogany lends a dry characteristic to the 510, giving a particularly articulate boost to the uppder mid harmonics. The 510 acoustic would be well-suited for players leaning towards a roots sound or style; in fact, it's shown up in various recordings within the genre.

    This is my first upscale guitar purchase in 38 years. My last was a Martin D35 in 1981. I still have it and love it. After all of those years playing a rosewood guitar I wanted to branch out into the "drier" tone of mahogany. I did a lot of looking around and trying out a lot of guitars in a lot…

    This is an amazing guitar. Taylor has always made great guitars but this was one of those rare finds. I know because I am the original owner. I confirmed this with the serial number. This is actually a 2000 Taylor 510 not a 2003. It was the first year that Taylor incorporated the modular neck. Love this guitar; sounds and plays fantastic!

    Great guitar, wish it were a 910. But that's just money. I've played 45 yrs. One of the best I've ever played. It isn't my old D35, plays easier though. Well worth the money
