The back and sides are made up of layered sapele, adding to the beautiful appearance of the Academy 10 while ensuring the guitar feels durable.

The neck is topped with a 20-fret ebony fingerboard, offering a sumptuous playing surface beneath the fingertips. The frets are decorated with dot Italian acrylic inlays, while the light gauge strings allow you to perform bends with ease.
The headstock of the Academy 10 is fitted with chrome tuners while the Nubone nut and Micarta saddle work well with these to uphold tuning and intonation. The Taylor Academy 10 is a beautiful acoustic guitar from the Academy series, suitable for flourishing and mature musicians alike.
