The 910ce Rosewood/Spruce Dreadnought Acoustic-Electric Guitar features a Venetian cutaway that along with the Expression System’s seamless aesthetic integration enhances this guitar’s grace and good looks, offering the ultimate rosewood experience for the acoustic/electric performer.”
Indian Rosewood/Sitka –
Indian rosewood seems as if it was created to be on a guitar. The clarity, balance, sustain, excellent bass response, and wonderful coloration and figure are without equal. Paired with Sitka spruce, it is an unstoppable combination.
Dreadnought (DN) –
The Taylor Dreadnought is a focused guitar with plenty of presence, recently redesigned to be even more assertive. It’ the traditional choice for the traditional player; the model to drive with a heavy pick.
Expression System® –
Using proprietary pickup technology developed at Taylor, the Expression System amplifies your guitar with an unrivalled, natural live sound. Onboard tone controls provide added flavour, or set flat for an uncoloured, exceptionally-clean amplified sound. It’s your tone. Amplified.
The finish used to create this guitar’s lustrous gloss top, back, and sides was developed at Taylor for maximum durability and resistance to cold-checking. This ultra violet-cured finish is also more environmentally friendly than traditional lacquer finishes. Available in natural finish.

This Taylor 910 CE is a serious high end guitar which has been little used and kept in excellent condition – not a mark anywhere. It was a custom order which specified a lovely subtle Honey Burst top which was a $500 upgrade. Not many (if any) in Australia.
It was purchased by a pro musician who used it sporadically, probably because it was “too beautiful” to take to gigs. Whatever the case, this one is in pristine order. Nothing has been changed, it has been well set up, everything is in order. Plays great and sounds like a top spec Taylor should, both acoustically and through its propriety Expression System pickup circuit.
Comes in its original Taylor hard case in new condition.
