Players can count on the Taylor Academy Series to deliver an authentic acoustic playing experience in a package that's friendly to both a beginner's hands and your budget. The Academy 20e is a dreadnought acoustic-electric guitar featuring a solid walnut top paired with layered walnut back and sides, adding up to a warm, punchy tone that performs beautifully across playing styles and genres. New learners will appreciate the slender neck design and built-in armrest, along with the slightly shorter scale that comes with Academy guitars. This model comes with our ES-B acoustic pickup, which provides faithful plugged-in sound along with easy tuning thanks to the included digital tuner. Perfect for new players or any guitarist in need of an affordable, great-sounding instrument, the Academy 20e is sure to set you on the path to musical inspiration.
