The Taylor 110 is a dreadnought acoustic guitar, without any pick ups or electronics. I don't know all of the woods that this guitar is made out of, but the neck is made out of mahogany. Since there aren't any pick ups, it doesn't have any setting controls or anything.

UTILIZATION

Playing the Taylor 110 is definitely a pleasure as it's an easy instrument to play. In general Taylor guitars don't have the best feel for me, but it's still very smooth and I find it easy to navigate up and down the neck without a problem. Since there aren't any parameters or settings to mess with, playing the guitar itself is your main concern! The guitar is about average in weight and size for a dreadnought acoustic guitar.

SOUNDS

The sound of the Taylor 110 is vibrant and overall pretty full, but bright. It does have a well rounded sound, but my first impression of the guitar was that it was full bodied with a hint of brightness. I haven't done any recording with the Taylor 110, as I've only used it for practicing and messing around on. It definitely has the Taylor sound for those of you who have played Taylor guitars and are looking for that sort of vibe. I wouldn't say that the 110 is any better for one genre over another, as it will fit well in any situation where you'd want an acoustic guitar.

OVERALL OPINION

As far as mid level acoustic guitars are concerned, the Taylor 110 is really a great instrument. It's got a great blend of quality craftsmanship, playability, and sound, all for a price that is more than reasonable. While I'd rather have a Martin over a Taylor, I know plenty of people who would rather have a Taylor. The 110 must be a popular model because of it's high quality at this price. If you're looking to get some bang for your buck in an acoustic guitar, you'll definitely find a whole lot of it with the Taylor 110...
