Taylor Academy 12-N Classical Guitar Natural
What We Think
This nylon strung Grand Concert from Taylor’s Academy series maybe the best nylon string guitar you’ll find for the money. Taylor have made this guitar accessible to more players by bringing Taylors legendary playability and tone into an affordable price range. The guitar is so nice to play it is light on the touch and with the built-in arm rest it is so comfortable to play, you’ll be playing it for hours. Tonally the guitar sounds great with the Sapele back & sides and a solid Lutz spruce top this guitar easily sounds as good as it feels.
The grand concert body is significantly smaller than the grand auditorium, providing a big sound in a comfortable design. Built with a tapered waist and shorter scale, as well as a lighter string tension, the grand concert shape is perfect for in the studio and on stage. Fingerpickers will love with the clarity and precision of this exceptionally designed guitar body.
Lutz spruce is an excellent combination of sitka and white spruce, delivering a robust tone that responds well to a strong attack. The A12 is ideal for travelling musicians, as the layered sapele body provides extra resilience in fluctuating humidity conditions, for a durable guitar.
Like other in the Academy Series, the A12 features an ebony fingerboard, which offers a strong, rigid surface keeping the neck straighter and provides an ideal platform for percussive styles like tapping and hammer-ons. Another benefit of an ebony fingerboard offers a smooth surface, that reduces finger fatigue and allows for fast, complex styles.
Finally, for that vibrant, contemporary tone, the A12 is equipped with a set of Pro Arte Carbon Hard Tension nylon strings. These strings deliver superior intonation, a responsive attack and a projective tone that sits well in any mix.
