Taylor

Exceptional construction, solid spruce top, sapele back and sides, and Taylor ES-T electronics.

The Taylor 110e Sapele/Spruce Dreadnought Acoustic-Electric Guitar gives you crisp, sweet tone with great visual appeal from an ebony fretboard and detailed finish. Refined traditional guitar shape and scalloped X-bracing accentuate the open, airy midrange you expect from a Taylor. Responds especially well to flatpicking and heavy strumming.

Tonewood
As a guitar soundboard, or top, Sitka spruce is the tonewood standard of the modern era. It’s used on 85-90 percent of the guitars that Taylor makes. Its combination of strength and elasticity translates into a broad dynamic range, yielding crisp articulation and allowing for everything from aggressive strumming and flatpicking to fingerpicking. Sitka spruce is Bob Taylor’s personal favorite for an all-around great guitar.

Dreadnought (DN)
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.

ES-T Under-Saddle Transducer
The ES-T is a single-source, under-saddle transducer with individual elements for each string. It features an onboard preamp and the same active controls found on the full ES. Featuring a custom-voiced EQ and dynamic response, the system is powered by a 9-volt battery, with a battery life LED power indicator (which is lit when the battery is being used). The pickup also has a Phase switch for feedback control, which is located on the preamp board inside the soundhole.

Includes gig bag.

      Comments about Taylor 110e Dreadnought Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

      I've had a Taylor 314 with an expression system before this 110e. I think the 110e sounds better when it is unplugged. Plugged in they sound about the same.

      This is a very high quality guitar and I prefer it because I don't have to worry as much about something happening to it, as I would with a higher end Taylor.

      I think the quality of sound you get with a Taylor is incomparable with any other guitars at their price.

      Good buy

      Comments about Taylor 110e Dreadnought Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

      I've owned a 110e for about four years now. I bought this guitar because of the great treble and midrange it has. Bass is tight and not too pronounced. There are stress flaws in the Sitka spruce top. This is the biggest drawback. It is completely aesthetic and doesn't appear to effect tone. All good tone woods otherwise. Very much like the ebony fingerboard and bridge. (One of the things that gives it a snappy tone)
      Bought the guitar from this site and was happy. Other guitar manufactures can make guitars with beautiful Sitka Spruce tops and no flaws for less money than this guitar, So it is disappointing that Taylor sees fit to use a poor quality wood to save money.
      Overall however, I am happy with the instrument.

      Did not meet my expectations of Taylor quality

      By Wayne Mishler

      from Arkansas

      Comments about Taylor 110e Dreadnought Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

      When I opened the bag, my eye went immediately to what I thought was a flaw in the finish of the spruce top. On close examination, I saw that it was a variation in the grain similar to that which surrounds a knot. This was not a burl effect or a curly maple pattern, but a stripe that cut all the way across the waist of the body from top to bottom, through the center of the sound hole, dividing the top into two sections. I am a woodworker and have seen similar variations in grain exhibit tension in wood, leading to warp. The heart and soul of a flat-top acoustic guitar is its spruce top and bracing which produces the quality of tone. While I'm no luthier, in my thinking as a woodworker and guitarist, the spruce top is not the best place for tension in the wood. I took the guitar out of the bag and examined it from end to end. The sides and back were beautiful. I especially liked the slightly arched back. And then I noticed another variation in the wood, this time a white streak running lengthwise from about the 3rd to 5th frets in the ebony fingerboard. I'm told that this is not uncommon in modern day low-end guitars, but this was a Taylor, and because of my expectations of Taylor, this was another disappointment. I tuned the strings and was impressed at how easily this guitar played. The sound I thought was overly bright, and the tone skewed toward to the mid to treble ranges with little bass, and noticably shallow tone -- not like the 110ce I had played at the music store. (A symptom of a stress in the top?) I emailed Taylor's customer service department. They responded promptly and their response indicated that this was typical of the Taylor 110e, and that it would probably not be productive to exchange it for another one.
      The 110e is a relatively small yet full-size, lightweight, and very playable guitar. I liked these features. Out of the box it fretted easily all the way from the nut to the 14th fret without buzz. It needed no setup. I bought the guitar as a traveling companion, and for that purpose it seemed well suited. It came with a gig bag instead of a hard case and I think that adds to the 110e's portability. I tried several small Taylor guitars including their "mini-Taylor" in local music stores and the model I liked best for travel was the 110. The only one in stock locally was the 110ce (cutaway) so this was the basis for my evaluation. I wanted a conventional dreadnaught body shape and decided to order the 110e from MF.
      The apparent quality of the wood used in the 110e that I purchased, and the tone of the guitar, did not meet my expectations of Taylor quality.
      Even though the 110e played easily, I considered the apparent quality of the wood used in the guitar, the tone of the guitar, and the response I got from Taylor customer service department, not to be worth the price of the 110e. In my opinion, this is not a "low-end" guitar. Nor is it inexpensive relative to similar models of other popular brands. I expected bettery quality for the price.
