OVERVIEW

The price says entry-level, but the sound is anything but.

Taylor's 100 Series makes a great guitar-playing experience accessible to everyone with these real wood instruments. For people taking the first or next step in their musical journey, these instruments promise to accelerate players' growth and enhance their enjoyment. Taylor's famous neck profile combined with a 1-11/16" nut width make it easy for developing players to form barre chords. All 100 Series models include a durable, 600-denier nylon gig bag with double-stitched seams and reinforced stress points, built by Taylor for an optimal fit.

Body Shape
The dreadnought is one of the most traditional acoustic guitar shapes. Taylor's version has been refined to blend its trademark robust low-end tone with a snappy midrange and brilliant treble notes, producing a pleasing balance of power and articulation. If you're a flatpicker or strummer who likes to dig in on lead or rhythm, the Dreadnought should serve you well.

Tonewoods
A guitar's top is the primary filter and distributor of vibrating string energy through the guitar, which means it has a huge impact on its sound. Sitka Spruce is the most prevalent guitar top wood of the modern era. It blends stiffness and elasticity in just the right proportions which translates into broad dynamic range with crisp articulation. Layered Sapele back and sides create a sturdy yet receptive platform for the vibrating string energy sent by the guitar's top. Layered wood is less susceptible to changes in temperature and humidity, making it an excellent choice for players who travel with their instruments or simply require more durability.

ES2 Electronics
The Taylor Expression System 2 (ES2) is a revolutionary pickup design that delivers the latest in Taylor’s ongoing innovation in acoustic guitar amplification. The heart of the Expression System 2 is Taylor’s patented behind-the-saddle pickup, which features three uniquely positioned and individually calibrated pickup sensors. The location of the sensors enables a more dynamic range of acoustic sound to be captured than ever before. Together with Taylor’s custom-designed “professional audio”-grade preamp, this system produces exceptional amplified tone and responsiveness. On stage through a PA, plugged into your favorite acoustic amplifier, or direct into recording software, the Expression System 2 faithfully conveys the voice of your Taylor guitar.


What sets Taylor Guitars apart? Unmatched build quality, the most stable and playable necks, a vast array of tonal options, eco-conscious and ethically-sourced raw materials, and a lifetime of service and support.

    Comments about Taylor 100 Series 110e Dreadnought Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

    This is a fantastic guitar. Mine was set up very well when I received it. Easy to play, good intonation, and beautiful tone. The pickup sounds very good, too. I don't mind the lack of inlay and artistry present in higher-priced Taylors. I'd rather save that money for other instruments. For my ear and playing level, this is fantastic and economical choice.

      Comments about Taylor 100 Series 110e Dreadnought Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

      This is the second 110 series I have owned. Years ago I had a 110ce that was my main guitar, but eventually sold it to fund another purchase - no regrets in regards to that as I still have the upgraded guitar it helped fund. However as time passed and opportunities opened up, it was clear that it was time to get serious about having a back up guitar. My previous experience with the 110 series made it an easy choice. The 110 series is not flashy - but much more importantly it sounds great, always stays in tune, and the neck suits me perfectly for easy playability. My current 110e is the guitar I take to and from practice during the week while my higher end guitar gets rested up for the weekend activities. This guitar is very reliable and does exactly what I call upon it to do.

        Comments about Taylor 100 Series 110e Dreadnought Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

        I didn't buy this guitar from MF as I was trading in two others to thin out my collection. I have never considered a Taylor until I played this one. My buddy and I strummed every guitar under a grand and this was the jewel among them all. They included Martin, Gibson, Fender, Takamine, Ovation, Seagull, Yamaha, etc. After playing for over 50 years, you pretty much know from the first few strums when you've got your hands on a winner. In my opinion, there isn't a better entry level guitar for the money on the wall. Beautiful balanced tone, ease of play and state of the art electronics add up to a perfect buy. I don't think any serious player would be disappointed with this instrument. Don't be put off by the layered back and sides. There is no bracing on the inside of the back and the punch this baby puts out is amazing. Scalloped forward x-bracing makes the top sing. This is the first guitar I've played in years that actually surprised me with the quality sound and playability that pickers everywhere are looking for. Try it, you'll like it.
