The Taylor Academy Series guitars will inspire everyone from beginners to seasoned players looking for a great guitar at a great price. The Taylor Academy Series was designed with developing players in mind, so the goal was to create a comfortable playing experience. The Academy 12e features layered walnut back and sides with a solid torrefied spruce top, and incorporates a feature normally reserved for premium instruments: a built-in armrest that softens the edge of the body's bass 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.

On-board ES-B 1.2 electronics include a built-in digital chromatic tuner with an LED display and low battery indication. Whether you're at the front end of your guitar journey or just looking for a great strumming guitar without breaking the bank, the Academy 12e is a great option.
