One of the biggest reasons budding guitarists lose interest in learning and playing the guitar is due to the lack of quality, playability and sound of many entry-level instruments. Keeping this in mind, Taylor is proud to introduce the Academy Series of instruments, which gives students and beginners an affordable instrument that doesn't sacrifice in quality, playability and tone. Making a Taylor guitar more accessible than ever before, the Academy Series was developed with the novice guitarist in mind, but is equally suited for seasoned players that are looking for a budget-friendly option. Each Academy Series model boasts Taylor's signature sleek, hand-friendly necks, a comfortable armrest, great sound, and Taylor-quality construction.

Featuring smaller Grand Concert body made from a solid Sitka spruce top with layered sapele back & sides, the Academy Series A12e is a great choice for fingerstyle players, players with a light touch, and players who find comfort in a more compact instrument. The A12e also features an ergonomic armrest, which offers an ultra-comfortable playing experience while adding an elegant look. The mahogany neck offers an outstanding playing feel thanks to its slim profile design, shorter 24-7/8" scale length, narrower 1-11/16" nut width, low action, and light gauge strings. Ready to plug in and play? The Taylor A12e comes equipped with onboard ES-B electronics featuring a built-in digital chromatic tuner so that you can always be sure your guitar's in tune. Comes complete with lightweight gig bag.
