Taylor's Distinctive Sound in an Affordable Dreadnought

The Taylor 110e acoustic-electric guitar is an excellent choice for a beginning guitarist or for a seasoned player's extra guitar. Get your hands on the 110e, and you'll be blown away by its rich tone and outstanding projection right from the first strum. You'll find the 110e's mahogany neck extremely comfortable and playable, while its Sitka spruce/sapele tonewood combination provides you with the perfect balance of warmth and sparkle. On top of that, the onboard ES2 electronics ensure that you'll sound your best - plugged or unplugged.

Taylor 110e Acoustic-electric Guitar at a Glance:
  • Classic dreadnought volume combined with clear treble
  • Solid spruce top and ebony fingerboard
  • Taylor's Expression System 2 delivers incredibly natural sound with full dynamics
Classic dreadnought volume combined with clear treble

A traditional shape refined, the 110e combines classic dreadnought volume and bass response with the definitive Taylor sound: clear trebles and an open, airy midrange that Bob Taylor's signature design accentuates. Like all dreadnoughts, the 110e responds especially well to flatpicking or light to heavy strumming.

Solid spruce top and ebony fingerboard

The 110e's solid Sitka spruce top and laminated sapele back and sides make for crisp and well-defined sound in this versatile mid-priced guitar. The mahogany neck is combined with an ebony fingerboard. A durable varnish finish offers protection, good looks, and a smooth feel to the touch.

Taylor's Expression System 2 delivers incredibly natural sound with full dynamics

Traditionally, acoustic-electric guitars have employed under-saddle piezo transducers, but Taylor goes about it a bit differently. Their Expression System 2 uses a proprietary pickup behind the saddle. The pickup's three individually calibrated, precisely positioned piezo-electric sensors respond organically to the instrument's acoustic energy as it's transferred through the saddle. In concert with Taylor's custom-designed preamp (which delivers a 25% hotter signal), the result is a natural acoustic sound with incredible dynamic range and responsiveness to your pick or finger attack. Sweetwater's guitar gurus are mightily impressed with Taylor's Expression System 2. Whether you're onstage through a PA, plugged into an acoustic amp, or direct into recording software, the ES2 faithfully conveys the voice of a Taylor guitar.

Taylor 110e Acoustic-electric Guitar Features:
  • 6-string acoustic-electric dreadnought
  • Layered sapele back and sides
  • Sitka spruce top
  • American mahogany neck with ebony fretboard
  • 25.5" scale length

Excellent Value!

I have never considered a Taylor until I played this one. My buddy and I strummed every guitar under a grand and this was the jewel among them all. They included Martin, Gibson, Fender, Takamine, Ovation, Seagull, Yamaha, etc. After playing for over 50 years, you pretty much know from the first few strums when you've got your hands on a winner. In my opinion, there isn't a better entry level guitar for the money on the wall. Beautiful balanced tone, ease of play and state of the art electronics add up to a perfect buy. I don't think any serious player would be disappointed with this instrument. Don't be put off by the layered back and sides. There is no bracing on the inside of the back and the punch this baby puts out is amazing. Scalloped forward x-bracing makes the top sing. This is the first guitar I've played in years that actually surprised me with the quality sound and playability that pickers everywhere are looking for. Try it, you'll like it.

Great Guitar!!!

Bought this guitar for my son, after attempting to try a Seagull. Let me tell you, that this guitar was far above and beyond the Seagull and Martins in this price range. Just buy this one. You will not regret this model.I want one myself, now.

This should have been my first guitar

This is my second guitar purchase as a beginning acoustic player. My first was an inexpensive Fender, which I eventually realized was not a long term instrument. I found shopping for a good guitar in the price range to be challenging. This range puts you at the entry level for Taylor and Martin, the midrange for Seagull and Yamaha, and the higher end for, say, Fender or Epiphone. I purchased the Taylor 110e for several reasons. First, after shopping and researching, I found other brands with equivalent features "on paper" for the same price: Solid spruce top, ebony fretboards, mahogany neck, electronics. But in researching and reading reviews, I was surprised how often these equivalent-feature guitars got negative reviews for things like construction quality or fit/finish. Also, my instructor suggested that a Taylor or Martin would hold value in the long run, whereas other brands would likely not. Eventually, I decided buying the 110e was like buying an entry-level Mercedes: the name brings with it a certain level of quality and attention. In the end, I'm very satisfied with the sound, features, and quality of the 110. This is probably a lifetime guitar, even if I eventually buy a nicer model. In retrospect, the 110 should have been my first guitar.
