If you're just starting out then Taylor's Academy 12e is made for you. Too often new guitar players will give up because the instrument quality is just not up to scratch; poor tone, high action and bad intonation makes it easy to become disheartened and give up learning guitar. Taylor used a simple design philosophy when designing the Academy series - the best, for the most, with the least. Gone are the non-essentials such as the pickguard and body binding, in its place are features that make the guitar affordable and more comfortable to play such as the built-in armrest and shorter scale length. Using a Grand Concert body shape with Sitka spruce top, layered sapele back & sides, and a sapele neck with ebony fingerboard, Taylor have managed to keep quality materials in the guitar without bumping up the price, and fitted with Taylor's ES-B pick-up/pre-amp you can easily plug in and play.
Taylor’s Academy Series makes the playing experience more accessible in every way, packing signature Taylor playing features into an affordable package. With the A12e, 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.
