Part of Taylor’s 100 Series, the Taylor 110ce Electro Acoustic Guitar is a full-sized dreadnought that may just change your expectations about what a serious entry-level guitar can embody, with an extremely rich and versatile voice, which, along with the inclusion of the ES-T pickup system, makes it the ideal performer’s second, or even first, instrument.
The classic dreadnought shape that the Taylor 110ce employs gives it the following dimensions: Body Width: 16", Body Depth: 4 5/8", Body Length: 20". This equates to a powerful but balanced instrument, performing with articulation across the entire tonal spectrum. Flatpickers and strummers have the most to gain with this guitar but with its versatility, finger-style players could well find a home here, too. This particular model also utilises Taylor’s Venetian cutaway, giving a soft, sloping peak to the body’s shape that both looks attractive and allows unrestrictive access to the upper register.
The perfect tonewood for a dreadnought’s top, Sitka spruce has been incorporated in the construction of this guitar; lending its strength, brightness, clarity, and broad dynamic range, which partners with the body shape seamlessly.
At the back and sides the Taylor 110ce has layered sapele, which in this case is made of a core of poplar between layers of sapele. The advantage of having a layered body is that it strengthens the guitar’s resilience to changes in humidity, something that is of great concern when moving between various venues. It also helps keep the cost of the instrument down, whilst keeping the instrument looking good. In this model’s case, the back has been pressed into a slight arch, which, along with providing extra strength, adds to its full, rich tone.
Giving you exceptional playability, the Taylor 110 ce Electro Acoustic Guitar is equipped with a slightly narrower, 1 11/16-inch sapele neck, which has been topped by a 20-fret, Indian rosewood fingerboard with 6mm dot inlays.
Hooking up to an amplifier or P.A system is kept simple, with the equipped Taylor ES-T under-saddle transducer pickup, which has been voiced for the 100 and 200 Series, and includes a Phase switch for feedback control (located on the preamp board inside the soundhole).
The preamp offers a simple selection of powerful controls with a custom-voiced EQ (comprised of bass and treble) and a volume control at your disposal, along with a low-battery LED indicator.
