The compact Grand Concert body of the Academy 12e makes the perfect companion for fingerpicking or anyone with a lighter touch who craves the physical comfort of a small-body guitar. The guitar's design specs are optimized for playing ease. Taylor's 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 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 guitar comes with an onboard ES-B pickup that includes a built-in digital chromatic tuner.
  • Solid Sitka Spruce top serves up a vibrant, articulate acoustic tone
  • The armrest, usually found only in high-end Taylor models, increases comfort and playability
  • Added ES-B pickup packs a serious sonic punch when plugged in or playing acoustically
  • Grand Concert body shape ideal for fingerpickers, beginner players, and those will smaller hands
