Taylor 100 Series
About Taylor 100 Series Guitars
You don't have to be a famous star to get your hands on a beautifully crafted acoustic guitar. In fact, Taylor Guitars has been dedicated to musicians of all tastes and budgets since 1974, and their 100 Series is a great example of entry-level six-strings that would impress even the most experienced player. Whether you prefer the volume of a dreadnought or the comfort of a grand auditorium cutaway, the Taylor 100 Series is chock-full of best-selling acoustic and acoustic-electric guitars that are crafted with high-quality woods and components.
The Taylor 100 Series is made up of a wide range of models. To start your search, check out the Taylor 100 Series 2015 110e Dreadnought Acoustic-Electric Guitar. Sporting an ebony fretboard and detailed finish along with a refined traditional shape and scalloped X-bracing, this guitar has the eye-catching visual appeal to complement its sweet, crisp sound. Additionally, it's loaded with the ES2 under-saddle transducer to capture every nuance of the guitar's natural sound with total clarity. The 110e is also available in a Venetian cutaway style - ideal for players who want quick access to the upper frets.
Speaking of cutaways, another popular model is the Taylor 100 Series 2015 114ce Grand Auditorium Acoustic-Electric Guitar. For extra resilience to fluctuating climate conditions, this guitar incorporates laminate back and sides. The balanced mid-range and bright sound of the 114ce make it perfect for studio recording while the under-saddle ES2 acoustic pickup will ensure your sound will reach everyone at your next live performance.
Taylor's goal for their 100 Series is simple: employ the best luthiers who use only the most advanced luthier technologies and quality materials to produce acoustic guitars that the average player can afford. Any model from this catalog would prove that Taylor accomplished their goal; boasting solid Sitka spruce tops and easy-playing action, the 100 Series boasts everything that makes Taylor's higher-end models so terrific, but without breaking the bank.
Taylor's layered sapele/solid Sitka spruce 100 Series makes a great playing experience broadly accessible without compromising on fundamentals like playability, tonal clarity, and workmanship. These qualities make all the difference, especially to players near the front end of their guitar journey or those looking to progress to the next level. Two body styles, the versatile Grand Auditorium and traditional Dreadnought, are available, either with or without a cutaway, and models come equipped with Taylor's Expression System 2 pickup. The series also features a 12-string Dreadnought 150e, which might just be the best-playing 12-string you'll find for the money. All 100 Series models feature black binding, an all-matte finish, and come with a Taylor gig bag.
