1996 Taylor 810

In the mid-90s Taylor’s 810 dreadnought was helping to usher in the era of Taylor Guitar’s pre-eminence in the acoustic guitar industry. The model took on Martin’s D-28 head to head in specs, but one-upped the elder with a flash of pearl in its rosette, a set of good looking Advanced Jumbo inspired inlays in the fingerboard, and scalloped braces under the hood. It was a good looking and a great sounding guitar, and was marketed really well. The 810 had a lot to do with solidifying Taylor’s place in the pantheon of great acoustic guitar manufacturers.

This example is in gorgeous condition and features a spectacular set of Indian rosewood. It’s surprisingly light in playwear and is quite clean. We’ve just replaced the first 3 frets and the guitar plays well with our standard set-up. Fast neck carve with 1-3/4” nut width, 25.5” scale. No cracks or repairs, original finish throughout, gold tuners.

With original hardshell case
