Taylor Guitars 400 Series Rosewood

Taylor has added rosewood guitars to their 400 series.

This new line sees a gloss finish which sets it apart from the recent Spring  Limited Edition rosewood guitars with satin finish.

I suppose the increase comes mainly from the gloss finish. Comparing the 410-e R 2016 and Spring LTD 410e-R (Retail US$2658 vs US$2358). In fact, these new rosewood models represent great value considering the fact that you get rosewood in a lower tier of Taylor’s line up. No need to guess how much more costly the 700 and 800 rosewood guitars can be.

The new 400 dreads are interesting because they have a 43mm nut. I know many collectors players often scorn at 43mm nut widths, but there are also players who appreciate a slimmer nut which is similar to electric guitars.

It’s a pity Taylor had to use white bindings for these new guitars. 😦
