The Taylor Academy 10e Dreadnought distills the features of a great Taylor guitar and cuts out some of the frills to bring in down in budget. Taylor designed the Academy Series for the developing player, so their goal was to create as comfortable and inviting a playing experience as possible. The guitars are based around the classic combo of layered sapele back and sides with a solid Sitka spruce top, buts add a built-in armrest to soften the edge of the body for enhanced playing comfort.

The Academy 10e has Taylor's patented neck featuring a slightly shorter 24-7/8-inch scale length, 1-11/16-inch nut width, and light gauge strings, which make fretting and bending strings easier.

Tonally the Academy 10e is bold with a warm low end and punchy treble, making it a great option for strummers and flatpickers. Onboard ES-B electronics include a built-in digital chromatic with an LED display for tuning and low battery indication.

Whether you’re just starting out or looking for a great strumming guitar without breaking the bank, the Taylor Academy 10e will serve you well.

    Can’t speak highly enough about this guitar. Is the perfect starter/intermediate package for any player. The sound is amazing and the ease of playing is perfect. Wish I had bought one sooner!

    I have only been learning for four months but was using a cheap guitar. This guitar got excellent reviews on the internet and I wasn't disappointed when it arrived. I hope my playing improves with a guitar from an excellent company.
