Taylor have thought about every single subtle detail when it comes to the new Academy Series. Taylor have included new and innovative appointments to improve playing comfort, sound, but most of all the Academy 10e aims to be affordable. The Academy 10e combines excellent craftsmanship with superior materials to bring you this amazing acoustic guitar.
The Academy 10e has the classic non-cutaway dreadnought body, ideal whether you prefer strumming or flatpicking techniques. Taylor have employed solid Sitka spruce to form the body top, the ultimate choice for an acoustic soundboard thanks to its true ability to project with clarity. The back and sides are made up of three layers of wood, layered sapele, adding to the beautiful appearance of the A10e while remaining durable. The dreadnought body shape combined with these tonewoods produces a range of warm low end tones and sparkling trebles with a great response.
An innovative addition to the Academy Series is that the guitars feature an ergonomic armrest which is built into the body to reduce fatigue and improve overall playability.
The Academy 10e is firmly fitted with a patented Taylor sapele neck which has a slightly shorter 24-7/8-inch scale length. The neck is topped with 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.
Taylor have fitted an ES-B pickup to the Academy 10e, which is a combination of Taylor's Expression System 2 piezo design along with a built-in digital chromatic tuner. The preamp has an LED display so you can easily see the battery status and tuning, even in a dark venue. You can take charge of your sound using the Tone and Volume controls. The preamp only requires two button cell 3v lithium batteries which will then give you around 300 hours of use; so you can be confident from the practice session through to the live gig.
The headstock of the Academy 10e is fitted with dependable chrome tuners while the Nubone nut and Micarta saddle work well to uphold tuning and intonation. The Taylor Academy 10e is a beautiful acoustic model from the Academy series, suitable for flourishing and mature guitarists alike. Taylor include a gig bag with each Academy 10e so that each new owner can protect their new pride and joy.
