Trying to get a feel for the Taylor.  So for it does not seem bright and harsh, but that could be old strings.  I will need to put in new strings soon.

Congratulations on the new/used 810!

Nice acquisition, Ron. Congrats!

I would say a dreadnought is best for flatpicking. 

My new (used) taylor dreadnaught just arrived. It is a 1994 brazilian 810.  Woo hoo. And it is mellower than my rosewood martin dread.

Which Taylor series is best suited for flatpicking?

Comment by Don McClellan on September 23, 2013 at 7:37am

Hi Mike, I agree with Daniel Cooper, After a whole lot of research and probably way too much in store auditions of several acoustic amps I finally decided that the Fishman Artist was the one for me and my 816ce. It's sound is about as clean as it gets and it has a ton effects should you want to change things up. If you email  tell him Don McClellan suggested you contact him for more information and pricing on the Fishman Artist, he's a great guy and extremely knowledgeable. Hope this helps.

Hey Mike, Fishman has a big history with acoustic guitars. They make a nice selection of acoustic amps. You might start looking there.

Might also check one of these out for your new Taylor while your at it. We build them for Taylor.

Not that I need an amp for my new Taylor, but I know that it's inevitable that I'll be getting one sometime.  What do you guys recommend?

Thank you!  It's almost too pretty to play!  And mine has the Englemann Spruce top with the rosewood back & sides.  It has plenty of snap to it, but I was torn between the cedar top and spruce.  It's so comfortable to play, that's for sure.

Congratulations!! I got a 714 ce a few months ago, it has a red cedar top and a rosewood back and sides. Is yours the same??? It is mellower than I anticipated but the more I play it the more I have come to love the sound. I look forward to hearing what you think as you play it more.
