The Taylor Academy Series A10e Dreadnought is engineered with a laser focus on player development. This guitar boasts a top, back, and sides crafted from Taylor's signature Sitka spruce and layered sapele. This combination not only creates a robust and resonant sound but also lays the foundation for a visually beautiful instrument. What sets the A10e apart is its thoughtful ergonomic design, featuring a built-in armrest that enhances comfort during extended playing sessions and streamlines strumming.
The Dreadnought body shape of the A10e produces warm low-end frequencies and punchy treble tones and the shorter scale length furthers the instrument's playability, facilitating easier fretting and bending of strings. The result is a guitar that responds to nuanced playing.
Equipped with the Taylor Expression System pickup, the Academy Series A10e transitions easily from the studio to the stage. The fingerboard of the A10e is crafted from West African Crelicam Ebony, providing a smooth and durable surface for fretwork, while adorned with 4mm Dot Italian Acrylic inlays, combining functionality with aesthetic appeal. The neck, with a width of 1-11/16", ensures a comfortable playing experience, while the Taylor Neck joint ensures stability and sustain.
Chrome tuning machines, a Nubone nut, and a Micarta saddle contribute to the A10e's reliability and tuning stability as well, and a varnish finish protects the instrument and showcases the grain of the tonewood. The three-ring Baltic Birch rosette and black plastic truss rod cover further underscore the guitar's attention to detail and craftsmanship.
With a body width of 15 1/8", body length of 20", and body depth of 4 5/8", the Academy Series A10e finds a balance between comfort and projection.
