Taylor Academy Series A12e · Acoustic Guitar

Taylor's Academy Series makes the playing experience more accessible in every way, and combines the typical Taylor playability features in one affordable package. With the Academy 12e, our compact Grand Concert body is the perfect companion for finger picking or for those who have a lighter touch and long for the physical comfort of a guitar with a small body. The design specifications of the guitar are optimized for easy playing. Taylor's patented, slim neck offers a number of hand-friendly details: a shorter 24-7 / 8-inch scale length, 1-11 / 16-inch saddle width, low action and light strings, which lead to a very pleasant playability. The light guitar body with layered Sapele back and sides with a solid Sitka spruce top has an ergonomic armrest that increases the playing comfort for the picking arm. The guitar was also rated as particularly responsive to make the playing experience as relaxed as possible. The guitar comes with an integrated ES-B pickup that includes a built-in digital chromatic tuner and a sturdy, lightweight gig bag.

Taylor Academy Series
The Academy Series is intended for beginners as well as for those returning to Taylor, as a target group, who can get an instrument for the lowest possible price, with playability and sound in the foreground, where all money-consuming decorations are mercilessly avoided, but all important Taylor features are integrated. The Academy Series starts with 3 models: a dreadnought for guitarists who like to play with a pick, a grand concert for fingerpickers and a nylon string grand concert; all three optionally available with Taylor ES-B electronics.
A special feature of these models is the so-called Armrest, which makes playing more pleasant.

Taylor Acoustic for Beginners

James on 14.04.2020

arrived on time and a very good guitar. Small blemish on the side of the guitar but I decided it was not worth the time and effort to return.
Very pleased with the Guitar, great price and great value for money.
