For many people, when they are asked to think of an acoustic guitar it is the dreadnought that comes to mind. Taylor have years of guitar-building experience and knowledge, and are always working to improve on their acoustic models to keep up with the fast-paced, changing musical needs of various artists and enthusiasts all over the world. The 110e maintains the quintessential dreadnought shape and blends it with high quality tonewoods and electronics for an excellent sound and feel.
As mentioned, the 110e has a traditional non-cutaway dreadnought body profile, symmetrical and slick in appearance. Regardless of your preferred guitar-playing technique, the dreadnought can adapt to them all, from hard picking to heavy strumming.
As with a plethora of Taylor acoustics, the soundboard is constructed from Sitka Spruce due to its versatility and elasticity when the instrument is played. The top features the Forward Shifted bracing pattern to strengthen the guitar. The Sitka Spruce is paired with layered walnut back and sides which produce a superb range of snappy highs to rich lows without forgetting the punchy midrange.
A sapele neck with a narrow 1 11/16 inch nut width has a slim feel in the hand, facilitating bar chords and faster playability. Topping the neck is an ebony fingerboard which hosts 20 frets with 4mm dot Italian acrylic inlays as a handy guide.
The 110e Walnut is supplied with the excellent Taylor Expression System 2 onboard electronics. This includes the innovative patented behind-the-saddle pickup design with three uniquely placed and individually calibrated pickup sensors. This exclusive design works with Taylor's custom "professional audio"-grade preamp to produce a responsive, full-bodied acoustic voice. Whether you're plugged into an amp or PA system, the 110e will sound just as you wish it to by using the simple Tone and Volume controls.
As you would expect with any Taylor guitar, the 110e is kitted out with top quality hardware. The headstock is fitted with chrome tuners to uphold tuning integrity with precision, while a Tusq nut and Micarta saddle improve sustain. To complete the look, the body has a black pickguard and decorative three ring soundhole rosette. For any ardent acoustic fan, the Taylor 110e Walnut has a beautiful combination of materials and craftsmanship for a wonderfully enjoyable playing experience.
