Just starting out on guitar? Taylor Academy Series acoustic guitars get you in on the ground floor with a genuine Taylor guitar at an accessible price. Music Experience knows the lack of a quality instrument is one of the main reasons new guitarists give up. High action, poor intonation, and inferior tone will quickly take its toll and derail your learning experience. Taylor applied their decades of guitar-building expertise in designing an affordable line of instruments that sidesteps these issues to deliver a guitar that plays comfortably and effortlessly, removing the barriers to your development as a player. But these are guitars even seasoned players will love. We dig the high-quality tonewoods, the thin, tone-enhancing varnish finish, and the unique armrest that reduces fatigue during practice and performance. The Taylor Academy Series. Because everyone appreciates a quality guitar at a great price. The Taylor Academy A12e features a Grand Concert body with a Sitka spruce top, layered sapele back and sides, a mahogany neck with a genuine ebony fingerboard, and Taylor ES-B electronics.

    What Taylor Says...

    Taylor’s Academy Series makes the playing experience more accessible in every way, packing signature Taylor playing features into an affordable package. With the Academy 12e, our compact Grand Concert body makes the perfect companion for fingerpicking or anyone with a lighter touch who craves the physical comfort of a small-body guitar. The guitar’s design specs are optimized for playing ease. Taylor’s patented, slim-profile neck features an array of hand-friendly touches: a shorter 24-7/8-inch scale length, 1-11/16-inch nut width, low action, and light gauge strings, all of which contribute to a slinky handfeel. The lightweight guitar body, featuring layered sapele back and sides with a solid Sitka spruce top, boasts an ergonomic armrest that enhances the playing comfort for one’s picking arm. The guitar was also voiced to be extra responsive to make the playing experience as relaxed as possible. The guitar comes with an onboard ES-B pickup that includes a built-in digital chromatic tuner, and comes with a sturdy lightweight gig bag.
