This Taylor Academy 12 Acoustic Guitar has that great Taylor tone and signature features in one affordable package. Don't be confused, despite its low price, this is a REAL Taylor that plays and sounds like much more expensive instruments!
The compact body makes this guitar the perfect companion for fingerpicking and light strummers. The small body is very comfortable to hold. Made with a Spruce Top and Layered Sapele Back and Sides, this guitar provides a classic, focused, and articulate tone!
The slim-profile neck has a shorter 24 7/8" scale length, 1 11/16" nut width, low action, and light gauge strings which makes this a very easy-to-play guitar. Perfect for the beginner due to the lighter-than-average string tension or the experienced player looking for an easy-feeling guitar they won't worry about too much out on gigs or at rehearsal. I know I would have appreciated learning to play on an instrument that plays as easily as the Academy Series from Taylor!
The Taylor Academy 12 Acoustic Guitar comes with a sturdy lightweight Taylor gig bag so whether you are coming or going, you are doing it in style with your instrument well-protected!
