New for 2017! Taylor "The Academy Series" Shop Now!

Designed to make a full-featured Taylor playing experience more accessible than ever, these guitars distill all the essential elements of a great guitar into a more affordable option.

With the Academy Series, Taylor cleared a path to the most inviting guitar experience an entry-level player or anyone on a budget could ask for, from a comfortable feel to pleasing tone to performance reliability, all at an affordable price. The combination of a narrower 1-11/16-inch nut width, 24-7/8-inch scale length, and light gauge strings serves up a buttery string feel that fingers will love. And on the guitar body, an armrest improves the playing comfort. These guitars deliver the best playing experience a customer could ask for in this price range. Choose from the Dreadnought Academy 10e, Grand Concert Academy 12e, or nylon-string Grand Concert Academy 12e-N.
