Taylor's Academy Series A12e, with a 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 guitar's 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 hand feel. 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 was also voiced to be extra responsive to make the playing experience as relaxed as possible. The guitar comes with an onboard ES-B pickup that includes a built-in digital chromatic tuner, and comes with a sturdy lightweight gig bag.

Took up guitar this year as a retirement project. The beveled arm rest and size makes it extremely comfortable to play and its sounds great. It is making learning guitar easier. The more experienced guitarists in my family are very impressed with its playability and sound. Very happy with this well built guitar. Its getting a lot of use! Highly recommend this model.

Great guitar. Plays like butter. Sounds good plugged in as well. The shorter scale length is also nice.
