Academy 12e

The Grand Concert body shape is known in the guitar world for its articulation, clarity and touch-responsiveness, and the Academy 12e from Taylor Guitars is no different. Made with a solid spruce top and layered sapele back and sides, this model sings with a voice that belies its small frame, resonating with room-filling projection and midrange punch. The utilitarian aesthetic reflects this guitar's appeal across styles and ability levels, focusing on comfort for the player to inspire continued musical growth. An armrest offers a comfortable spot to rest your strumming arm and keep it feeling fresh over long practice sessions, while the slightly shorter scale length reduces the string tension for a more relaxed feel on the fretting hand. But this is hardly just a beginner's guitar, and the ES-B electronics lend it utility in amplified settings. Complete with a built-in digital tuner and soft gig bag, the Academy Series 12e has everything you could need, and nothing you don't.
