The flagship series of the acoustic/electric line traces back to Bob Taylor's first rosewood guitars, which helped establish a modern acoustic guitar sound. This year's model benefits from a major redesign that includes optimized dimensions, different glues, a thinner finish, better strings and the new Expression System pickup and preamp. Contemporary appointments include curly maple binding and a pearl fretboard inlay, which together add a splash of refined style.
The most traditional of guitar shapes, Bob Taylor has evolved the Taylor Dreadnought over time to honor its enduring sonic heritage yet also refine the look and sound into a more modern package. The Taylor Dreadnought still boasts that powerful dreadnought tone that old school pickers expect, with deep lows and crisp highs, but with a voice that, like every Taylor, is more evenly balanced across the entire tonal spectrum. Perhaps more than any other shape, the Dreadnought remains linked with roots music like bluegrass and folk, in part because of its traditional role in defining those sounds. Pickers and strummers with an aggressive attack will love the Dreadnought's blend of power and articulation, which allows for clear lead lines and crisp, driving rhythms.
The Taylor Expression System 2 (ES2) is a revolutionary pickup design that delivers the latest in Taylor's ongoing innovation in acoustic guitar amplification. The heart of the Expression System 2 is Taylor's proprietary behind-the-saddle pickup (patent pending), which features three uniquely positioned and individually calibrated pickup sensors. The location of the sensors enables a more dynamic range of acoustic sound to be captured than ever before. Together with Taylor's custom-designed "professional audio"-grade preamp, this system produces exceptional amplified tone and responsiveness.
