From the original Sweetwater product page (scroll down to read my comments after):

An Affordable Taylor with ES Blue Electronics!

In the Taylor 210ce, East Indian rosewood adds depth to the sparkle of a Sitka top, filling in a full range of tonal possibilities. With the ES2 amplification system, the affordably-priced dreadnought cutaway 210ce can now be plugged in to further enhance the Taylor playing experience.

Taylor 210ce Acoustic/Electric Guitar at a Glance:

Classic dreadnought volume combined with clear treble
Solid spruce top and Ebony fingerboard
Taylor’s Expression System 2 delivers incredibly natural sound with full dynamics
Classic dreadnought volume combined with clear treble
A traditional shape refined, the 210ce combines classic dreadnought volume and bass response with the definitive Taylor sound: clear trebles and an open, airy midrange that Bob Taylor’s signature design accentuates. Like all dreadnoughts, the 210ce responds especially well to flatpicking or light-to-heavy strumming.

Solid spruce top and Ebony fingerboard
With solid Sitka spruce top and layered rosewood back and sides, the affordably priced 210ce is an introduction to the Taylor playing experience. Ebony is used for the fretboard and bridge, while white binding accents the 210ce’s dreadnought body.

Taylor’s Expression System 2 delivers incredibly natural sound with full dynamics
Traditionally, acoustic-electric guitars have employed under-saddle piezo transducers, but Taylor has discovered a better way. Their revolutionary Expression System 2 uses a proprietary pickup behind the saddle. The pickup’s three individually calibrated, precisely positioned piezo-electric sensors respond organically to the instrument’s acoustic energy as it’s transferred through the saddle. In concert with Taylor’s custom-designed preamp (which delivers a 25% hotter signal), the result is a more natural acoustic sound with incredible dynamic range and responsiveness to your pick or finger attack. Sweetwater’s guitar gurus are mightily impressed with Taylor’s Expression System 2. Whether you’re onstage through a PA, plugged into an acoustic amp, or direct into recording software, the ES2 faithfully conveys the voice of a Taylor guitar.

Bought this new from Sweetwater in 2010. Reverb’s fair market value ranges from around $500 to the low $700’s. I’m asking right at $725 because it’s basically never really been used. It’s in pristine condition for a guitar from 2010. I’m not much of a guitarist and just bought it for home recording. It has a few minor dings on the top of the headstock and on the underside of the body. Very minor, though, as this guitar has never been outside of my house. All in all, it’s still in extremely clean condition (you can see from the photos of the frets, it has barely been played). In fact, that’s why I’m selling it: I never use it. Comes with a suede/leather Taylor strap and hardbag. Please check my seller rating and reviews for former listings and buy with confidence. Shipping only to the continental US. Thanks for looking!
