Playing the A12e is an enjoyable guitar experience. Taylor's guitar design expertise makes the A12e guitar that is easy on the hands and helps you sound great from your first strum. Taylor Academy Series guitars will inspire everyone from beginners to seasoned players looking for a great guitar at a great price.

Taylor Academy Series was designed with developing players in mind, so the goal was to create as comfortable a playing experience as possible. The guitar body pairs layered sapele back and sides with a solid Sitka spruce top, and incorporates a feature normally reserved for Taylor's premium instruments: a built-in armrest that softens the edge of the body's treble-side lower bout to enhance the playing comfort.

The patented Taylor neck features a slightly shorter 24-7/8-inch scale length, 1-11/16-inch nut width, and light gauge strings, which make fretting and bending strings easier. Tonally the Grand Concert's body dimensions produce a balanced response with a sweet low end and punchy treble, making this a great option for developing players looking for a full sound.

Onboard ES-B 1.2 electronics include a built-in digital chromatic with an LED display for tuning and low battery indication. Whether you're at the front end of you guitar journey or just looking for a great strumming guitar without breaking the bank, the A12e will serve you well.
