The Taylor Academy Series - much like its namesake is essentially a more accessible Taylor Guitar. These are entry-level guitars packed with all the quality you'd expect from Taylor. They play just as nice as a professional guitar and are streamlined so they're super easy to learn on.
Taylor Academy Series are superb entry-level guitars because they've been designed with comfort and playability in mind. This means if you're new to the world of guitar then you're more likely to stick at it. This is down to the enhanced playability of these models as well as the extremely comfortable ergonomic design on offer. They also house a built-in pickup for live performance and a tuner, a must-have tool for any guitar player!
Just because you’re only starting out in the world of guitar, it doesn’t mean that you can’t purchase a high-quality instrument. In-fact, this can be more cost-effective in the long-run as it means you won’t need to upgrade once you get onto the stage and into the studio. While the Taylor Academy line are budget-friendly and affordable options - they’re good enough for experienced players across the globe due to the high-quality craftsmanship on offer.
There are plenty of highlights within the Taylor Academy Series. One of the most accessible options is the Taylor Academy 10 Dreadnought Acoustic Guitar, Natural which comes in under the £500 mark. For this you’ll get a classic Dreadnought style acoustic which delivers stunning tone along with optimum comfort and playability. This also includes a gig bag which is ideal for new-starters needing to carry their guitar to practice. If you can spend a little bit more then it’s worth taking a look at the Taylor Academy 10e Dreadnought Electro Acoustic, which is even further into the realm of professional guitars, offering a bold response, warm lows and great trebles.
