Thanks to Taylor's Academy Series, playing the guitar is now more accessible and affordable for those who have been interested in learning, or for experienced players who are looking for a more comfortable fit. The compact Grand Concert body along with Taylor's patented slim-profile neck, 24-7/8-inch scale length, 1-11/16-inch nut width, low action, and light-gauge strings make playing effortless and comfortable. The guitar's lightweight body features layered sapele back and sides, a solid sitka spruce top, and an ergonomic armrest for extra comfort during long practicing and performing sessions. The A12e also comes with Taylor's onboard ES-B pickup that includes a built-in digital chromatic tuner. Ships in a sturdy, lightweight Taylor gig bag.
