Taylor Academy 12e Grand Concert Electro Acoustic
With this Taylor Academy 12e Electro Acoustic Guitar, you'll get access to a true Taylor guitar experience with an affordability that belies the guitar's premium tone, spec and great playability.
As with all of the Taylor Academy Series, the Taylor 12e acoustic guitar is packed with a host of premium features that makes this guitar really standout at this price point. The Taylor 12e's compact Grand Concert sized body is constructed from a solid Sitka spruce top with sapele back and sides. A standout feature that not only adds cosmetic charm but also aids the comfortable playing experience is the ergonomic armrest - a feature normally only seen on higher end Taylor models.
The necks design specs are optimized for playing comfort. The slim mahogany neck (which is topped with an ebony fingerboard) features a slightly shorter 24 7/8" scale with a 1 11/16" width nut. In addition, the factory fitted light gauge strings and low action add to the guitar's great playability.
Whilst a great performer as a straight acoustic, the Taylor 12e performs admirably when you need to be amplified or in a studio situation. The onboard ES-B system incorporates Taylor’s Expression System 2 piezo design elements and an onboard preamp with controls for volume and tone. A handy addition comes with the built-in tuner with its easy to use LED display.
Other appointments include high quality chrome tuners, a Nubone nut and and a Micarta saddle, giving it the same level of tonal performance and tuning integrity that Taylor have become renowned for.
From the beginner to the pro player, the Academy Series gives players access to the much loved Taylor tonal and playing experience in one affordable package.
