The Taylor Guitars Academy Series guitars offer an excellent entry into the world of quality acoustic guitars at a slightly smaller size than standard models. For seasoned players, the Taylor Academy Series might just be the perfect couch strummer or travel guitar.
The Taylor Academy 22e Walnut offers all the benefits of a solid walnut top along with the comfort features of the smaller size instrument. Walnut produces a tone as a top wood similar to Mahogany or Koa as a result of comparable hardness and density. Walnut has a beautiful natural figure that looks as great as it sounds. The slim Grand Concert body pairs perfectly with the shorter 24 7/8” scale length and the 1 11/16” nut width. Grand Concerts are notoriously excellent for fingerstyle with its touch sensitive design and dynamic response. The beveled armrest adds to the comfort creating a soft spot for your strumming forearm to rest while you play, instead of a sharp 90-degree corner. You will not often see a beveled armrest on instruments in this price point.
The Taylor Academy 22e comes complete with built-in electronics via the Taylor ES-B pickup and preamp system. Simply plug into an amp or PA and you are ready for any live situation with onboard 3 band EQ and a built-in tuner. Taylor gigbag included.
