The Taylor 110e left-handed dreadnought electro acoustic guitar in natural finish is a superb introduction for those picking up their first Taylor guitar. This accessible model is built to the high standard of quality we've come to expect from the team at Taylor, with a range of features that are normally associated with their more expensive models.
The body is shaped to that of the powerful dreadnought body profile, which is noted for its balance of powerful projection and well-rounded timbre. The instantly recognisable shape is probably the most familiar amongst all guitarists, sitting comfortable in the hands and providing a robust performance partner that is suited to intimate gigs just as much as the stadium stage. The black pickguard protects the body top from unwanted nicks and scrapes, and creates a subtle contrast to the subtle natural finish.
The back and sides of the body have been built from layered sapele, which is composed of a central core of poplar that is pressed between interior and exterior layers of sapele veneers. The layered nature of the back and sides gives it incredible resilience when handling changes in humidity and temperature - making it superb for touring guitarists who want a guitar that travels well.
The body top is made from Sitka spruce, which is a highly flexible tonewood with enviable resonant properties that make it a fantastic soundboard. Reinforced using Taylor's forward shifted bracing pattern, the top delivers the timbre generated by the tonewoods and dreadnought shape with power and clarity.
Supportive Sapele Neck
Fitted to the body is a reassuringly solid sapele neck, which is paired with a delightful 20-fret ebony fingerboard that is adorned with 6mm dot position inlays. The neck is treated to a varnish that guarantees a smooth and responsive playing feel, whilst preserving the longevity of the wood.
Taking care of the tuning are the die-cast tuning machines, which guarantee that your tuning will be held securely, no matter how enthusiastically you strike the strings. The Nubone nut and Tusq saddle work together with the Indian rosewood bridge, to optimise action and intonation whilst creating a seamless link between the strings and body. The Taylor 110e dreadnought electro acoustic guitar comes with a gig bag, so you're good to get out and gig as soon as it arrives.
Taylor's Expression System T Electronics
In addition to the natural sound projection abilities of the tonewoods and dreadnought body shape, the 110e is fitted with Taylor's ES-T electronics system, which allows you to plug the guitar into an amplifier. The ES-T is a single-source, under-saddle transducer with individual response elements for each string. It features a built-in preamp to give the signal a boost, if necessary, and the same active controls that are on the full ES in more expensive models. These are discreetly tucked away so that they don't interfere with your playing.
The Taylor 110e left-handed dreadnought electro acoustic guitar in natural comes equipped with Elixir Phosphor Bronze Medium strings, as well as a gig bag to get you up and running for your first gig with immediate effect.
