  • NGD! Taylor 710

    NGD everyone! Just picked up a 1997 Taylor 710 (local pickup - used, of course ) My current guitar is Epi AJ Masterbilt and I love her with all my heart but sometimes I miss the crispness.

    This baby has sublime sharpness and looks & feels great. The neck feel is not exactly like my epi but has fairly thin profile, but isn't a v-neck. The owner didn't remember all specifications so not sure if the top is Engleman or Sitka spruce (but I doubt its Cedar) and assume the body is Rosewood. She also has a highlander pickup that the owner installed after-market and sounds great. My first Taylor and really the first one crossing 1K (I think it was good deal)

    Does anyone know how I can find specifications based on serial number. The owner mentioned something about the neck having some form of Brazilian wood but wasn't completely sure. Can I call Taylor and ask for specifications? 

    Anyways, I love the sound and will be playing this thang a lot now

    Although agree with most folks, the bass (particularly on the D string) isn't as romantic/powerful as a Martin (particularly HD28V). The only other guitars I liked (as I have been looking for a bit) were Martin HD28V (powerful sound, still maintains the crispness) and a particular piece of Hummingbird Pro. Those two were 2 or 3X of the price I paid for this 710 so I am happy! I haven't tried Colings or Taylor artist series yet so can't comment on those. 


    NGD! (p.s. pics are taken from my phone; will update some better pics later)

    Congratulations on a beautiful new guitar. Enjoy it in good health.
    I am not stupid, I just don't type very well.

    No idea about the specs but Taylor should be able to help. Congratulations and Happy New Guitar Day. It appears to be in good shape. How's the neck angle?

      Very nice -  and yes, call Taylor with the s/n and they should be able to tell you a lot about it.   Their customer service department is extremely good.
