Taylor Academy 22e Acoustic Electric Guitar

Available at Acoustic Centre Melbourne

The Taylor Academy 22e is an exceptional all-walnut acoustic-electric guitar that delivers professional-grade tone and construction at an affordable price. Whether you're a seasoned pro or a beginner just starting out, the Academy 22e offers enhanced playability and exceptional tonal versatility that will inspire you to new heights. With its solid walnut top and layered walnut back and sides, the Academy 22e produces a bright, clear tone with robust projection that can handle a wide variety of playing styles and genres.

Featuring Taylor's signature slim profile neck and a shorter 24-7/8-inch scale length, the Academy 22e is designed with the player in mind. Its ergonomic armrest and responsive fretboard make it easy to navigate the neck and play comfortably for hours on end. And when you're ready to take your playing to the stage, the built-in ES-B electronics allow you to plug in and electrify your sound with ease.

You can find the Taylor Academy 22e at the Acoustic Centre, your go-to local guitar shop for top-quality acoustic guitars. Or, if you prefer to shop online, the Acoustic Centre's online guitar store offers the same exceptional selection and customer service as their brick-and-mortar location. Whether you're looking for your first guitar or a new addition to your collection, the Taylor Academy 22e is an excellent choice that offers outstanding value and exceptional performance.

We endeavour to show the actual instrument in stock whenever possible, but the guitar in stock may differ slightly from the one shown on our website. Materials used can look different from guitar to guitar, including timber grain and colour, parts colours and finishing. If an instrument is a one-of-a-kind or preowned guitar, the picture will always be of the actual guitar in stock, but production models may have slight variations to the picture shown.

If you're after a particular look, feel free to email us at or send us a message through our chat service to request photos of the actual guitar in stock. We are more than happy to send through pictures of all in-stock guitars, to make your choice easier.

Please note that returns will not be accepted for variations in timber grain /  colouring, finish variations and parts colouring, unless there is a fault with the instrument. If you have any questions at all regarding an instrument's appearance, just drop us a line - we're always happy to send photos, and if we have more than one instrument in stock you'll be able to choose the exact guitar that you receive!
