The Academy 12-N hails from the brand new Academy Series by Taylor which has accessibility and affordability at its core. This left handed acoustic nylon-string Grand Concert model has so much quality to offer yet at a ludicrously low price for what you're getting.


The Academy 12-N has a smaller Grand Concert body design which is compact and comfortable for a wide range of musicians. The body features a tapered waist, and an ergonomic armrest is integrated into the body to further improve the playing feel while reducing fatigue.

Taylor used a natural hybrid of Sitka and White spruce known as Lutz Spruce to construct the Academy 12-N soundboard. The spruce provides a dynamic response and a strong attack as well as a roomy, clear projection. Beneath the top, the Academy 12-N features internal bracing to add warmth to your sound, working with the mellow tone of the nylon strings for fingerpicking and strumming. Layered sapele makes up the back and sides of the Academy 12-N. This is a tonewood with a striking appearance but an ultimately robust and reliable feel.


As with the other Academy Series models, Taylor employ a slim, patented neck via a scarf neck joint. The neck has a slick feel in your hand thanks to its mahogany construction and slim profile. Topping the neck is an ebony fingerboard with decorative 4mm dot inlays to guide you through each fret transition with confidence.


Nylon nickel tuners with pearloid buttons offer a sturdy feel when you come to retune the strings, ensuring that superb Academy Series sound is as accurate as possible. A Tusq nut and saddle works with the tuners and bridge to boost sustain. Each Academy 12-N comes supplied with a lightweight gig bag for protection when travelling with your guitar. The Taylor Academy 12-N is a magnificent acoustic at an exceptional price for the sheer quality on offer, ideal for nylon-string acoustic admirers, or for anyone looking for a change from the conventional steel-string guitar.
