The Taylor dreadnought is a focused guitar with plenty of presence, recently redesigned to be even more assertive. It’s the traditional choice for the traditional player; the model to drive with a heavy pick.

      Comments about Taylor 110 Sapele/Spruce Dreadnought Acoustic Guitar:

      I was surprised with the build quality at this price. This was my first Taylor guitar and have since bought another Taylor. The guitar sounds amazing. It stays in tune and was playable right out of the box after an expected tuning from shipping. I haven't found a single build flaw. The fret ends are smooth and are a good size for my personal preference. Comparing this to my previous acoustic which is a Takamine, it plays and sounds better, the neck is a lot thinner but not too thin. I really enjoy having a ebony fretboard, it sounds good and is nice and smooth.

          Comments about Taylor 110 Sapele/Spruce Dreadnought Acoustic Guitar:

          I know it sounds a little silly, but this acoustic has been with me about 5 years now, and I honestly cannot express how much I love this guitar. Let me say, I have gone through a number of acoustic guitars in my 10+ years of playing. I've played all kinds of Martins, Gibsons, Alvarez, Washburns, Seagulls, etc. but the first time I picked up a Taylor, I knew that it was the only acoustic guitar for me. To my ears, Taylor has such an incredibly balanced, beautiful tone. Every frequency seems to be perfectly in place...great low end, mids, high end presence...it's all there, exactly how I want it to be. Initially, I thought it would always be my "dream" acoustic guitar...that I'd never actually own one. The ones I had tried were all 1500+. One day, I went into a music store and picked up one of these Taylor 110's, mostly out of curiosity; I didn't expect it to be that great... WOW, I was amazed. It was everything I want in an acoustic guitar. The tone was spot on, the playability was phenomenal, the intonation was great. I even compared it to some of the more expensive Taylor acoustics and I actually liked this 110 better!

          Here's why:

          1) I love the classic dreadnought style and the black binding really sets it off. It's not flashy, but very understated and classic. I don't like painted or lacquered acoustic guitars, so this is an absolutely gorgeous guitar, in my opinion. It's got a great satin look which really shows off the grain of the wood...big plus in my book.

          2)The tone is incredible...period. Even compared to MUCH more expensive acoustics (1500+ range), this is still a clear winner. It has a very open and dynamic sound. It's equally great for finger style playing and heavy strumming with a pick. When playing full chords, each note really rings out. There's an incredible definition to the sound, but it can also get that a very somber, delicate tone when plucked with the fingers. Amazing, perfect, balanced tone (in my opinion, of course). I don't think I've ever played another acoustic that responds so well to playing dynamics. It's just awesome.

          3)The feel and playability of this instrument is spot on. The action was great, without any kind of adjustment or setup. The neck is super comfortable...not too thick, not too thin. The intonation was just about spot on. It's not perfect, but it's about as close to perfect as any acoustic I've ever played, regardless of price.

          Overall, I cannot recommend this guitar enough. It is everything I want in an acoustic guitar, so much so that I don't even bother looking at acoustics anymore when I visit my local music stores. I've used it live (with a mic) and in the studio and it excels in both applications. Especially when you put on a set of Elixirs...incredible. I LOVE this guitar. If you're thinking about it, just do yourself a favor and buy it. It's a top-notch acoustic, regardless of price.

            Comments about Taylor 110 Sapele/Spruce Dreadnought Acoustic Guitar:

            I started teaching myself to play a little less than a year ago and started on a beginner's Alverez. Well as I progressed I decided to do an upgrade and after viewing all makes and models,for my price range, I discovered the Taylor 110 Dreadnought. It's great sound and playability has never ceased to amaze me. Now me being just a beginner, all the qualities I was looking for,i.e. price range,size,feel, and playability are all emobodied in the Taylor 110 and I would recommend anty Taylor model to any one be they beginners like me or real musicians I know. Thanks from a very satisfied customer. Carl W.Brown Alabama

            Comments about Taylor 110 Sapele/Spruce Dreadnought Acoustic Guitar:

            For a long time it has been my dream to own a Taylor. I have always loved everything about them, from the feel of the neck, the action, the finish and, of course, the sound. When I picked up a 110 and began playing, I fell in love. I don't spend a lot of money on Guitars, and this is the most I have ever spent, but well worth it and well priced.

            I debated between the 110 and 114 and came to the conclusion that, if you like primarily fingerpicking... the 114 has a really great feel, action, and sound for fingerpicking... but it lacks in that BIG, rich tone with picks and strums that the dreadnought has. They are both great, but the 110 was for me. I chose it over Martin X (same price range) because of the Taylor's tested ebony neck, although both great guitars. The plastic bridge pins will do... for your first set of strings. But I have added TUSQ pins and Elixr Light Phosphor Bronze over the 80/20's that come stock, and I slightly adjusted the truss to my liking. It now SINGS - everyone always says "Wow, that's loud for an acoustic! Lots of Bass!" P.S. Be sure to Humidify. I use a basic sponge-type humidifier held in the strings, works fine.

              Comments about Taylor 110 Sapele/Spruce Dreadnought Acoustic Guitar:

              I actually bought my 110 used from a different company, but it is an awesome guitar. Aside from it being used and slightly dehydrated, I have no complaints about this guitar. It is an excellent guitar from someone looking to step-up from a beginner guitar or begin guitar on. The action was at the typical height of most Taylors and the overall set-up was really nice. It's easy to play and the neck width is a good size even for people with smaller hands. The sound and intonation is very consistent. I used a tuning app on my phone to check out notes in various locations on the fretboard and it never got far enough off to be considered out of tune. The harmonics on the 12th fret are dead on with the strings fretted at 12th. I highly recommend this guitar to anyone of any skill level.

              Taylor 2012 110

              By john carr

              from Folsom, CA

              Comments about Taylor 110 Sapele/Spruce Dreadnought Acoustic Guitar:

              This guitar has it all, especially for the price. I don't know how they can sell it for such a low price.
              As an owner of a Taylor 210 e, I bought this guitar for a friend who had his Martin 28D stolen. He really liked my Taylor, so I decided on the 110, being essentially the same, but without the electronics. He loves it, and we're both amazed at the quality of sound, from bottome to top and at such a price. Price was a factor in choosing this guitar over other similarily-priced brands, but I wouldn't have made a purchase at all based solely on that. I had read many reviews of Taylors and was convinced of their committment to consistent quality. Interestingly, the 110 has an ebony fingerboard, while mine has rosewood, but that seems to be the only real difference, The tops are spruce and the sides and back are sapele- an african tree similar to mahogany. And, as usual, Taylor strings their guitars with Elixirs. If you're looking for a solid guitar for under $1,000, I don't think you can beat a Taylor.
