Just starting out on guitar? Taylor Academy Series acoustic guitars get you in on the ground floor with a genuine Taylor guitar at an accessible price. Sweetwater knows the lack of a quality instrument is one of the main reasons new guitarists give up. High action, poor intonation, and inferior tone will quickly take its toll and derail your learning experience. Taylor applied their decades of guitar-building expertise in designing an affordable line of instruments that sidesteps these issues to deliver a guitar that plays comfortably and effortlessly, removing the barriers to your development as a player. But these are guitars even seasoned players will love. We dig the high-quality tonewoods, the thin, tone-enhancing varnish finish, and the unique armrest that reduces fatigue during practice and performance. The Taylor Academy Series. Because everyone appreciates a quality guitar at a great price.
The Taylor Academy A12e-N features a Grand Concert body with a Lutz spruce top, layered sapele back and sides, a mahogany neck with a genuine ebony fingerboard, and Taylor ES-B electronics.
