What's special about this item?

Feature: What it does:
Solid spruce top Punchy, articulate and warm sound

Ebony fretboard Dark color, tight grain; premium fretboard wood
Beveled armrest Smooth, beveled armrest cut for comfortable play

The Taylor Academy Series was designed with developing players in mind, so the goal was to create a comfortable playing experience. The Academy 12e-N nylon features layered walnut back and sides with a solid torrefied spruce top, and incorporates a feature normally reserved for premium instruments: a built-in armrest that softens the edge of the body's bass-side lower bout to enhance the playing comfort.

The patented Taylor neck features a 25 1/2" scale length with 1 7/8" nut width. Tonally the Grand Concert's body dimensions produce a balanced response with a sweet low end and punchy treble, making this a great option for developing players looking for a full sound.

On-board ES-B 1.2 nylon electronics include a built-in digital chromatic tuner with an LED display and low battery indication. Whether you're at the front end of you guitar journey or just looking for a great nylon guitar without breaking the bank, the Academy 12e-N nylon is a great option.
