Product Description

Over the past four-plus decades theres a resounding theme from Taylor Guitars: passion for improving the guitar-playing experience. The Academy Series, which includes the Academy 10 Dreadnought Acoustic Guitar, represents Taylors effort to support the development of the entry-level guitar player. Taylor believes that in many respects a player who is just beginning deserves the best-playing guitar. - So the approach tends to be: start with an inexpensive, good-enough guitar, and if things progress, upgrade to something better. But all too often this ends in hand-wringing frustration, where would-be music-makers walk away from the instrument blaming themselves for not having enough musical talent or physical dexterity, when in fact the real culprit all along was the guitar. - Academy Series guitars, like this Academy 10 Dreadnought, was designed to offer enough immediate gratification to encourage a new player to keep playing. To do so, the playing experience was Taylors priority: Easy to hold and play: the body is comfortable and lightweight. The guitar is easy to strum and fret. Rewarding sound: this guitar yields a good sound easily in the hands of a newer player. Not too precious. A guitar thats too precious can be intimidating for a novice to play and care for. Broad appeal: it covers a broad range of music preferences. - Function and Form - The Academy Series begins with the classic dreadnaught body.
