If you need a great-looking guitar that sounds wonderful plugged in, it's hard to beat the Taylor 210e Deluxe. The 210e Deluxe gives you the exotic look of rosewood, plus the full open sound and tonal balance of a solid spruce top. What's more, it features Taylor's dreadnought body style, which gives you incredible projection and volume along with Taylor's signature high-end chime. Here's another cool thing about the 210e Deluxe, it comes loaded with Taylor's ES-2 electronics, a specially designed system that's built to give guitars amazing tone onstage. And with all of this going for it, the 210e Deluxe is still one of Taylor's most affordable acoustic-electric guitars!

On Thanksgiving 2015, I was headed out to buy a $1500 Martin performer series guitar because of the 15% discount incentive from Guitar Center. I decide to check it out at the local store first, where I chanced across this guitar and ended up liking this way better than the Martin. Now that series of Martins is all sold woods and the one I was going for would have been my first rosewood back guitar (the source of the sound all great bluegrass flatpickers prefer). This Taylor, by contrast has a layered back (3 layers, with, I believe, poplar inside and rosewood outside). My experience with my singing, cheap Alvarez reminded me to believe my ears, and not what the specifications are "supposed" to mean. Somehow, this guitar manages to defy both the characteristic lack of body in the Taylor tone and the lack of a solid back and sides. With the medium gauge Elixirs that Taylor puts on these, the response is that of the "smiley face: EQ that I like on my stereo system's graphic equalizer. Its bass it at least as heavy and loud as any Martin, but with a sizzle up top that no Martin I have heard has had. For less than a grand that I paid, I can get Dan Crary's broad tonal spectrum that he gets off his top of the line Taylors.
As much as I love Tony Rice and David Grier's Martin D28 tone, I am not them, and I am enjoying a guitar that allows me a shot at finding my own singing tone, even with a limited technique and fluidity of movement. The really broad tonal spectrum allows one to muster very different sound by playing with fingers, thumbpick and fingers, and different boutique plectrums (Redbear, Wegen, organic).
My only issue is that it's a dreadnought and demands medium gauge strings (which are also recommended for getting a solid flatpicking tone), which keeps Travis picking a physical challenge. Somehow, I also have not managed to get the action lowered to a fingerpicking level (like you see on Sungha Jung or Adam Rafferty videos).
All reservations aside, just the huge tone with the big bass and the high sizzle make me want to pick up this guitar.
Nice, solid, well playing guitar with that signature Taylor sound.
