The Taylor Academy 12 is built on the player-friendly structure of the Grand Concert body enhanced with performance-enhancing appointments that are sure to satisfy everyone from the beginning guitarist to the most seasoned player.
A solid spruce top paired with layered sapele sides and back, all composed with signature Taylor ingenuity, ensures the Academy 12 is short on neither tone nor comfort.
You'll hear clear, articulate highs marked by beautiful overtones above a solid foundation of midrange presence that makes this model a cross-genre multitool. It's also remarkably welcoming for players of all skill levels, thanks to an armrest that Taylor usually reserves for higher-priced guitars and a shorter scale length that helps reduce string tension and make the guitar easier to play.
With an included soft gig bag, the Academy 12 has everything you could need to take your skills to the next level.
