As far as I know *10 are dreadnoughts.  I think the 500 series are mahogany.  I believe 610 would be a maple dreadnought.  Hope this helps.

It's made difficult by the fact that things have changed over the years.

At one time, 5xx was mahogany, 6xx was maple, 7xx was EIR, 8xx was "presentation grade" EIR.  4xx was satin finish, and pinless bridge, mostly mahogany, but "lower grade" koa, maple, and rosewood were included.  Over the years that has radically changed with those designations not necessarily being the same.  Plus, there are added (and redesigned) body sizes.

I guess the point is, it depends on what year the guitar is when deciphering the model you're looking at.

To address the question, a 510ce should be a mahogany (5xx), dreadnaught (x1x), 6 string (xx0), cutaway (xxxcx), electric (xxxxe)...  unless I quit paying attention.

The reference I am looking at right now confirms what you said, Ed.  (The official Vintage Guitar magazine Price Guide 2015 edition).

Rob, just curious why you need this info so urgently?  For a client or?

I have a friend who is looking at a used 510ce that for sale and he was told that the back and side's are maple.The price is under 13 its from '99.He has a 40 year old Alvarez dread that I keep alive but now he's looking for a cutaway and pre installed electronic's.

You probably heard that 1995-1999 was the Golden Era for Taylor. Some of the best sounding Taylors, better than the new ones.
The 514 [Grand Auditorium] size has been the winner rather than the 510 [Dreadnaught] model. Connoisseurs prefer the non-electrified model as Expression 1 was a lousy pickup,
since replaced by Expression 2.  If I was buying it I would replace the pickup if I was serious about amplified sound.

I have not liked any of the Expression pickup systems.  My biggest regret was ever selling my 1999 K22 koa, it was the best Taylor I ever picked up and was built the last year before the new bolt on neck join system...  some lucky guy in AZ has it now...
