Back/Side Woods: Layered Sapele

This amazing guitar was purchased directly from Taylor as an authorized "Factory Demo" model and was likely used at the factory in a demonstration for a visiting Artist, Dealer, or Dignitary.  At most, this guitar may show very light signs of play wear, similar to that of a new guitar hanging in your favorite guitar shop, but in most cases, there is no visible wear.  We will be sure to point out any noticeable blemishes with photos.  This guitar comes with the full factory warranty.

Taylor Academy 10

Designed and built with beginner guitar players in mind, the Academy Series 10 combines the full-bodied tone and response of the classic dreadnought shape with Taylor's standards of comfort and playability. Our trademark neck, devised as a more practical take on the traditional guitar neck, makes it easier to fret strings, hold chords, and bend notes, thanks to a slimmer profile and the slightly shorter 24-7/8-inch scale length of the Academy Series. Plus, the Academy 10 ships with one of our most premium features: an armrest, which provides a more comfortable fit for players who are just learning how to manage the larger body of an acoustic guitar. With a solid spruce top and layered sapele back and sides, the dreadnought shape of the Academy 10 produces a warm sound with a strong low end and clear, ringing high tones, smoothened out by the punchy midrange of layered sapele. Between its rich sound and a comfortable shape built to invite inspiration, the Academy 10 provides a perfect solution for beginner players or those looking to buy on a budget.
