Taylor’s Academy Series acoustic guitar makes the playing experience more accessible in every way, packing signature Taylor playing features into an affordable package. With the Academy 12e acoustic guitar, 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 acoustic guitars 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 acoustic 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 acoustic guitar was also voiced to be extra responsive to make the playing experience as relaxed as possible. The acoustic guitar comes with an onboard ES-B pickup that includes a built-in digital chromatic tuner
