Overview

Tone and playability are hallmarks of Taylor guitars, and you'll find the 100 Series delivers plenty of each. The 100 Series 110ce Dreadnought Acoustic-Electric Guitar has a solid sitka spruce top and sapele laminate back and sides. It also features a Venetian cutaway that helps with the upper range while the ES-T pickup primes you for plugging in.

Tonewood
As a guitar soundboard, or top, Sitka spruce is the tonewood standard of the modern era. It's used on 85-90 percent of the guitars that Taylor makes. Its combination of strength and elasticity translates into a broad dynamic range, yielding crisp articulation and allowing for everything from aggressive strumming and flatpicking to fingerpicking. Sitka spruce is Bob Taylor's personal favorite for an all-around great guitar.

Dreadnought (DN)
The Taylor dreadnought is a focused guitar with plenty of presence, recently redesigned to be even more assertive. It's the traditional choice for the traditional player; the model to drive with a heavy pick.

Taylor ES-T
Devloped by the same Taylor team that invented the Expression System pickup, the Taylor ES-T Under-Saddle Transducer takes piezo technology to another level. Optimized for the 100 and 200 Series, the system features onboard Bass, Treble, and Volume controls plus custom-voiced EQ and dynamic response.

Includes gig bag.

Comments about Taylor 100 Series 110ce Dreadnought Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

I bought the 110ce last week. I tried very many guitars during several visits to GC. This was the winner. The Taylor 114ce was a close second. I tried at least four 110's to find one with a decent set up. The others needed a set up which is true of many guitars. But my 110 sounded so good. It has some good sweet spots; the open A chord, G chord, and most all chords with a capo at 2nd and 4th fret. It projects pretty well for a guitar with a laminate back but it's not a cannon by any means. It stands up well to moderate to heavy strumming. The action is pretty good, no problem forming chords up to the 9th fret. You can even play past the 12th with the cutaway. I was looking for a guitar to take to the beach or backyard parties around the fire pit. I'm not using a $3000 instrument for that purpose. This guitar fits the bill for that. I will not deduct stars for the drawbacks. The tops aren't the prettiest but don't expect a premium select top for this money. Play it, don't look at it. The gig bag is cheap and very tight fitting on the guitar. I threw it in the trash because I already had a better one.

    Comments about Taylor 100 Series 110ce Dreadnought Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

    This was the first guitar I bought myself, since I first recieved the Big Baby from my parents 4 years ago for christmas.

    Such a smooth, rich tone, and very easy to play. I did minimal work on my saddle sanding down, but after that the action was just perfect.

    Plenty of volume and it comes with a pretty durable case.

    Love it 5 stars

    Great Guitar for Under $1,000

    Comments about Taylor 100 Series 110ce Dreadnought Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

    After owning this guitar for one year, I decided it was time to write a review for it. This guitar is absolutely stellar for the price! When I was shopping for a guitar last year, I tried many different models and brands before settling on Taylor's 110ce acoustic-electric guitar. At first, my heart was set on the 114ce, but after playing the guitar for an extended period of time, I decided against buying it, mostly because of the size- it is smaller than the 110ce. The electrics in the 110ce are amazing! I plug in all the time, and it sounds great. I go to my friends houses and jam with them and they use $1,200 guitars, yet you can't tell the difference in sound. I urge those of you who are looking to upgrade to a nicer guitar for under $1,000 to buy this instrument; it is just as nice, if not better, than every other guitar I played that cost fewer than $1,000. All in all in all, this is an excellent guitar and is not very expensive. The gig bag it comes with is actually very nice. I would not advise checking it as baggage on a plane, but it suffices if you are just throwing it in your trunk and going to the beach or something. The color on the guitar is beautiful and has stayed the same for a little over a year now. The action on the fret board and strings was perfect for me out of the box, but you may need to adjust them. Decent strings sound fine, but I went all out and bought a $20 set of strings and the guitar just sounds beautiful. It sounds great in a band and playing solo. There isn't too much bass to it, which is typical of a Taylor. I prefer the bass on a Martin, but it is what it is. I usually keep the treble and bass knobs set to the center; much higher than this and the beauty is taken away from the sound. Anyway, definitely buy this guitar!

    bad set up. hard to play

    By Ronald

    from silverdale,washington

    Comments about Taylor 100 Series 110ce Dreadnought Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

    This is the second guitar I have received in the past 30 days. The 1st guitar the strings were so stiff and the action was so.high I couldn't play it. I sent it back and got a replacement today. Same problem action is 5/16 of an inch at the 12th fret.I took it down to a Luther that has worked on these and spend $60 bucks to make it playable. The GC guy at customer service was great though

    Best Guitar for the Price!

    By Leonardo Garcia

    from College Station, TX

    Comments about Taylor 100 Series 110ce Dreadnought Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

    I was looking to buy a new acoustic and tried some seagulls, takamines, and breedloves around the same price and even some were $300 more than this Taylor, but it out shined them all. From the first strum I could feel and hear the difference. This is definitely the guitar to get if your looking in this price range.

    Comments about Taylor 100 Series 110ce Dreadnought Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

    I just bought this guitar, been playing for a lot of years and this is the best sounding guitar I have ever own. The sound is out of this world. I think I'm a Taylor man from now on. Don't know what else to say, you won't be disappointed if you buy it. One more time, the sound is incredible.

    Fantastic Guitar

    By JEREMY SMITH

    from Orlando, FL

    Comments about Taylor 100 Series 110ce Dreadnought Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

    I played many comperable guitars and decided on the 110CE for both playability and sound. This guitar is amazing. After picking it up, I played a set at church the following day and the sound difference was huge. This guitar is easily one of the best sounding guitars that I have ever played and the price made it an easy decision. Great job by the Taylor crew on this one. I wish I could give it ten stars!
