Overview

Revoiced for 2016, the Taylor 510e exhibits some of the classic features found on their older 500 series dreadnoughts but with uniquely modern design features to improve performance, playability and aesthetics.

Master Taylor luthier Andy Powers started by optimising the body bracing on the 2016 model. The bracing concept, dubbed Performance bracing, is grounded in the X-brace tradition with additional modifications that allow for subtle adjustments in shape and placement to influence how the top moves in relation to the back and sides. A slightly shorter 24-7/8" scale length (as often seen on their Grand Concert models) and a V-Carve neck help make the 510e more fun to fret and string bend with, also helped by the slotted headstock design to relieve string tension.

A noteworthy tonewood update brings Lutz spruce to the 510e, a naturally occurring hybrid of Sitka and White spruce. Lutz tends to grow in climate zones between where Sitka and White spruce are found, and is considered very adaptive within those microclimates. As with all Taylor tonewoods, their ethical and environmentally-friendly wood sourcing programmes are considerate of the environment and allow the trees to be replanted and grown at a sustainable rate.

The dynamic response of the Lutz spruce top works especially well with the dry, woody sound of mahogany, producing a balanced voice with crisp highs and soft lows. The 510e makes a musically versatile instrument that blends well with other instruments, especially with the natural, authentic electronic replication thanks to Taylor's ES2 (Expression System) electronics.
