"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. Taylor's 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 Taylor's 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."
