Taylor Academy 12-N Acoustic Guitar - Natural


Ideal both for beginner players or experienced guitarists seeking an affordable nylon-string guitar to add to the toolkit, the Academy 12-N generates a rich, snappy acoustic tone with the classical-hued flavor that only comes with nylon strings. Made with a solid Lutz spruce top for power, projection and articulation, this Grand Concert model offers a seamless playing feel thanks to its compact dimensions, built-in armrest and slender Taylor neck. Players will appreciate the radiused fretboard and 1-7/8" nut width, which provides ample spacing for fingerstyle arrangements but maintains a relaxed feel for fretting. The acoustic-only Academy 12-N ships with a soft-sided gig bag for transportation.
