The Academy Series was introduced by Taylor in 2017, with their head designer Andy Powers being the driving force behind these guitars. The concept was to offer a stripped down, utilitarian guitar that can fit into any players budget. The layered sapele back and sides are paired with a solid spruce top, giving a full bodied acoustic tone. An armrest, usually a feature reserved for the top tier instruments like the 900 Series, adds to the comfortable playing experience and allows the top to resonate to its full potential. A slightly narrower 1 11/16 nut width and slightly shorter 24 7/8 scale length deliver the best playing experience. The Academy 10e delivers full Dreadnought tone and volume, while the Grand Concert Academy 12e shines when played fingerstyle or with a lighter touch.
The basic aesthetics of the Academy Series perfectly compliment the full feature set of the guitar. The ES-B electronic system offer natural amplified tone with the convenience of a built in tuner. Genuine ebony fingerboard and bridge are unique for guitars in this price range! Full satin finish allows the body to resonate freely and give the guitar a comfortable feel. The Academy Series in the best bet for a beginner in need of a quality guitar that will make for the best experience learning, or for the seasoned musician looking for a high quality option on the best budget!Explore Academy Series
