What we say:

At a Glance:

The Taylor Academy 12e is a fantastic acoustic guitar, designed to be comfortable and very easy to play. It features high quality yet affordable materials, making it great value for money.

Features We Love:

Comfortable, Beveled Armrest

The guitar has a beveled armrest for added comfort. This feature is usually reserved for the absolute top-end Taylor guitars. It’s a refreshing and bold move to include them on such an affordable model!

Quality, Affordable Materials

The 12e is made with a solid Sitka Spruce soundboard and an Ebony fingerboard. Taylor have ensured that the most important elements to playing - sound, feel and comfort - are the number one priority. Costs are kept down by using layered Sapele for the back and sides, and by keeping the finish Matte. Instead of extra decorative elements, a simple sound hole rosette and dot inlays are used.


  • Comfortable to play thanks to beveled armrest
  • Great value for money
  • Very easy to play, with a slightly shorter than average scale length

Ashley C. - 6/4/2019

Kim Y. - 25/3/2019

Great sound and value for money!

Nicholas M. - 21/8/2018

Beautiful guitar, perfect for my needs. Easy to play and has a wonderful tone.

Michael M. - 21/7/2018

I?m a Taylor fan, I?ve had a variety go through my hands over time. They?re made well, living up to a quality I?ve come to expect. I?ll probably go for a lighter gauge string, but that?s just a personal preference. Play it every day, the top is still stiff, but it will come good. I know I?m lucky, so I?ll just go on and enjoy it.
