While the position of Taylor's 100 Series within its line of exquisitely crafted guitars might suggest that these are entry-level guitars, in reality they're anything but. Taylor's precision manufacturing methods give every guitar signature playability and balanced tonal clarity, making for an inviting musical experience. On the 100s, a solid Sitka spruce top optimizes the tonal response, while layered sapele back and sides offer extra resilience to fluctuating climate conditions, making these very travel-friendly guitars. Add Taylor's optional ES-T pickup and you've got a great sounding, great playing, plug-and-play-friendly guitar at a price that won't break the bank. 100 Series guitars are offered as a Dreadnought or Grand Auditorium, with or without a cutaway, including a sunburst model. And if you're considering a 12-string, the Dreadnought 150e delivers rich tone and buttery playability in an affordable package.
