One of the biggest reasons why new guitar players give up is the lack of a quality instrument. On beginner guitars, sometimes the strings are too hard to press down, or the tuning never seems right, or the sound is not that great. That’s why Taylor poured their guitar design expertise into developing the Academy Series guitars. The goal was to remove all the barriers that get in the way, from feel to sound to cost. The result is a guitar that’s easy on the hands and helps you sound great from your first strum. Academy Series guitars will inspire everyone from beginners to seasoned players looking for a great guitar at a great price.
