Grand Concert

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.


Sitka spruce offers a combination of strength and elasticity, delivering a broad dynamic range with crisp articulation. The A12 is ideal for travelling musicians, as the layered sapele body provides extra resilience in fluctuating humidity conditions, for a durable guitar.


The Taylor A12 is equipped with a set of phosphor bronze strings from Elixir. These steel strings are coated with an ultra-thin coating that eliminates gunk from getting between the windings, and delivering a consistent performance and tone. As well as tone, these strings reduce finger squeak and are the ideal choice for recording.

The Taylor Academy 12 Grand Concert Acoustic Guitar features a sitka spruce top, and a layered sapele body which delivers a broad dynamic range, as well as an attractive grain. This stunning guitar is elegantly crafted with a Grand Concert body shape, along with elegant curves that accommodate fingerstyle players. Additional features includes an ebony fingerboard, tusq nut, chrome tuners and many more. If that's not enough, a Taylor gig bag is also include for transportation and storage.
