Description

Details

Attention to detail is the primary foundation upon which the new Academy Series of acoustics are built. The expert luthiers at Taylor have used time-tested methods to enhance comfort and playability without compromising on quality. The left handed version of the Academy 12 is a superb model which will be the ideal aide for any fingerstyle acoustic musician.

Body

With a lightweight, compact Grand Concert body, the Academy 12 has a dynamic response, particularly for fingerstyle play. The body has a comfortable tapered waist, and an ergonomic armrest is built into the body to further improve comfort and reduce fatigue, while the shorter scale length and lighter string tension provides an effortless playing feel.

The body top of the Academy 12 is made from the favoured soundboard choice of solid Sitka spruce, owing to its crystal clear projection. The back and sides are made up of layered sapele, giving the Academy 12 its slick appearance while ensuring a sturdy framework. The Grand Concert body shape combined with the tonewoods produce a well-balanced acoustic output with exceptional clarity.

Neck

A patented Taylor slim sapele neck is joined to the body of the Academy 12 and it has a slightly shorter 24-7/8-inch scale length to facilitate playability. A 20-fret ebony fingerboard tops the neck, offering a high-calibre surface beneath the fingertips. The frets are decorated with guiding 4mm dot Italian acrylic inlays, while the light gauge strings allow you to perform intricate bends and patterns with confidence.

Hardware

Reliable chrome tuners are firmly fitted to the headstock which work fantastically with the Tusq nut and Micarta saddle for advanced tuning and intonation. The Academy 12 is an affordable yet first-rate left-handed acoustic from the new Taylor Academy series which everyone can certainly relish. Taylor include a lightweight gig bag so that each new owner can protect their stunning new guitar.
