One of the biggest reasons budding guitarists lose interest in learning and playing the guitar is due to the lack of quality, playability and sound of many entry-level instruments. Keeping this in mind, Taylor is proud to introduce the Academy Series of instruments, which gives students and beginners an affordable instrument that doesn't sacrifice in quality, playability and tone. Making a Taylor guitar more accessible than ever before, the Academy Series was developed with the novice guitarist in mind, but is equally suited for seasoned players that are looking for a budget-friendly option. Each Academy Series model boasts Taylor's signature sleek, hand-friendly necks, a comfortable armrest, great sound, and Taylor-quality construction.

Ideal for strummers and flatpickers on a budget, the Academy 10e A10e features a big-voiced Dreadnought body that's made from layered sapele back & sides with a solid Sitka spruce top to produce warm lows and a nice top-end punch. The A10e also features an ergonomic armrest, which offers an ultra-comfortable playing experience while adding an elegant look. The sapele neck offers an outstanding playing feel thanks to its slim profile design, shorter 24-7/8" scale length, narrower 1-11/16" nut width, low action, and light gauge strings. Ready to plug in and play? The Taylor A10e comes equipped with onboard ES-B electronics featuring Taylor Expression System 2 piezo design elements for superb plugged-in sound. The preamp also boasts a built-in digital chromatic tuner so that you can be sure your guitar's in tune. Comes complete with lightweight gig bag.

Would buy again. Maybe nylon version.


Really enjoying my new guitar. Easy to play and sounds great.



Luvin' It. Plays sooo easy and sounds great.


I'm loving this guitar. It is so easy to play that I am expanding my repertoir beyond what I was playing on my old Martin D1. The arm cut out is so nice, and having a built-in tuner is awesome for some of the drop D songs I like to play. I tried out more expensive guitars in the shop but couldn't be happier with my selection. Stuck at home is giving me lots of time on it as well.



Think to get another one


Its so smooth when i play And its so awesome



Fantastic guitar


I had a Taylor 610c from 2000's that I loved. I sold that a while back and I picked this up at the store and, while the wood and exterior finish is completely different, it felt and sounded exactly the same. I love this guitar and for the price would recommend for any level of guitarist.



Great guitar, affordable, and Sam Ash support was awesme!


I was looking for an affordable high quality acoustic guitar with decent electronics. The salesman at Sam Ash was extremely helpful and somehow intuitively knew that I would like the beveled edge for resting my arm across the body of the guitar. This has helped me correct my bad habit of playing close to the neck and not getting the full range of sound.



I would buy this guitar again and I really recommend it!!


Awesome guitar for the price, good feel I love it!!



I would recommend Taylor to anyone


Great guitar for the money Easy to play and sounds beautiful



Great sound. Easy and comfortable to play.


Wonderful guitar to learn with and an affordable gig worthy instrument.
