    Product Description

    The A12e features Taylor's compact Grand Concert body which makes it perfect 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 handfeel.

    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.

    ES-B Pickup/Preamp Combo
    The ES-B pickup incorporates Taylor’s Expression System® 2 piezo design elements and features an onboard preamp with a built-in digital chromatic tuner. The preamp/tuner unit features an LED display for tuning and low battery indication, along with Tone and Volume controls. The preamp/tuner is powered by two button cell 3v lithium (CR2032) batteries. Two new batteries will provide approximately 300 hours of use. The ES-B conserves battery life using a standard on/off system that will automatically turn off if left on over 3 minutes. A low battery indicator on the LED display (located on the preamp circuit board) will display an “L” when the battery reaches 4.5 volts.

    Enhanced Playability
    Our sleek, hand-friendly necks feature light-gauge strings and optimized dimensions for a slinky feel.

    A Comfortable Armrest
    This ergonomic feature is built into the guitar body to offer a more relaxed and rewarding playing experience.

    Killer Sound
    Besides clear tone and impeccable intonation, these guitars are voiced to respond easily to a player’s touch.

    Quality Construction
    Our guitars are engineered to last a lifetime. Our patented neck and durable body design make these guitars easy to maintain.

    An emphasis on design simplicity enabled us to produce a fully engineered Taylor guitar at an entry-level price.

    What is your opinion of this product?
    Brilliant sound and great playability. Amplified sound is even better. I didn't give it five stars because I would've liked this guitar to come w/ a pick guard and perhaps better finishes from better quality control during production. That said, once you play it, you forgive the minor flaws or oversights and eventually forget...

    Fantastic everyday player from Taylor
    What is your opinion of this product?
    The most playable acoustic I ever owned. Perfect size and slinky feel with shorter scale length. Great tone acoustic or plugged in. And the arm rest is just icing on the cake. Love this guitar, it's a keeper.
