The legendary dreadnought body shape offers a versatile shape that all players will love, especially flatpickers and strummers. With its deep lows and driving rhythms, the dreadnought body shape accommodates a variety of different styles and is particularly ideal for a hard picking attack.
Sitka Spruce offers a combination of strength and elasticity, delivering a broad dynamic range with crisp articulation. The Academy 10e is ideal for travelling musicians, as the layered Sapele body provides extra resilience in fluctuating humidity conditions, for a durable guitar.
For added volume at larger events, the Academy 10e features an ES-B pickup and preamp system. This innovative pickup incorporates Taylor's Expression system 2 piezo design, and features an LED display and a built-in digital chromatic tuner. Players can easily shape their sound using the tone and volume controls, located on the discrete sidemount on the upper bout.
