A grand concert with high-end features at an accessible price point - with a Sitka spruce top framed subtly by sapele back and sides - the rich, clear and balanced sounding Academy 12e was conceived to provide the beginner guitarist the best possible playing experience, and the most level possible playing field to hone their skills and master their craft – incorporating some of the features that you see on more high-end models, such as a built-in armrest that’s as conducive to playing comfort as it is aesthetically pleasing.
The smaller bodied grand concert body shape lends itself to fingerstyle players, shorter players, light strummers and those that prefer a more intimate playing experience – yet with an articulate voice that has just the right amount of top-end chime and controlled overtones, and can dish out some serious volume when called upon.
Seasoned players also will appreciate the Academy 12 for it’s easy playability – with a shorter scale length that reduces string tension, making the smooth action neck slinky on the fretting hand, and concert / studio ready onboard electronics. With a sturdy gig bag for easy transport and protection - the Academy series has all the classic Taylor hallmarks of build quality, craftsmanship, stability, playability and reliability – at an unbelievable price point.
Learning to play guitar (or any instrument) is one of the most wonderful journeys of the human experience. It can be a long, difficult and sometimes even frustrating road – and to set out on your own musical adventure on an uncomfortable, poor sounding guitar can only compound the situation – Let the Academy 12 be your solution!
