It goes without saying that the Dreadnought is still one of the most popular traditional acoustic guitar types in the world. As time has passed, Taylor have continued to work on the Dreadnought to keep it relevant and up-to-date, including more modern appointments to improve its sound and feel. The 110ce is a sublime dreadnought with a Venetian cutaway hailing from Taylor's 100 Series, designed to work perfectly in every style of guitar-playing.
Whether you prefer strumming complex chords or playing fingerstyle, the 110ce is designed to suit both, thanks to its Venetian Dreadnought cutaway design. The body profile allows full access to all frets that the neck has to offer, even the higher registers.
Taylor have selected Sitka Spruce with a forward shifted bracing pattern to construct the soundboard. Sitka spruce is a well-known tonewood due to its audible projection and articulate range of frequencies. The back and sides of the 110ce are made up of layered walnut, bringing crisp highs and deep low end tones to the guitar's expansive frequency range.
A significant feature of the 110ce is the signature thin-profile sapele neck with varnish finish joined to the body by a scarf joint. The neck feels ultimately comfortable in the hand thanks to the welcoming 1 11/16 inch nut width combined with the Venetian cutaway body shape. The neck is topped with an ebony fingerboard, which hosts 20 frets decorated with 4mm dot Italian acrylic inlays.
The 110ce model is equipped with the remarkable Expression System 2 pickup known for its unique behind-the-saddle design. The ES2 has three individually calibrated pickup sensors which accurately translate your acoustic voice. The ES2 pickup works with Taylor's custom-designed "professional audio"-grade preamp to give you a responsive, dynamic sound. Simple Volume and Tone controls make it even easier to make sound amendments, guaranteeing that it sounds excellent through any amp or PA system.
The Taylor 110ce is kitted out with performance-ready hardware, from the chrome tuners on the headstock to the Tusq nut and Micarta saddle which enhance sustain for a fuller, more balanced sound. The body features a decorative three ring soundhole rosette and black pickguard to protect the soundboard from scratches. Taylor continue to produce exquisite acoustic guitars for the masses, and the 110ce is yet another model that sets a precedent.
