Like the 200 Series, the 100 Series incorporates layered back and sides, which offer extra resilience to fluctuating climate conditions, and a slightly narrower 1 11/16-inch neck. It’s one of the best full-size guitars you’ll find for the money, especially with the availability of Taylor’s ES2 pickup. It makes a viable performance tool, a great entry-level guitar, or a second utility guitar for alternate tunings. This particular guitar has layered sapele back and sides and a solid spruce top. It's in excellent structural condition but cosmetically it shows a few light scuffs and nicks here and there. The frets are in great shape and have lots of life left in them. Include its original Taylor padded gig bag.
