Taylor

The Taylor Academy 12e-N Grand Concert left-handed 12-string acoustic-electric guitar delivers the rich, classic sounds of a nylon-string instrument at an accessible price. The light string tension of nylon is easier on one’s fingertips than steel strings, making it a great choice for kids or players not yet used to pressing down on metal wire. The Academy 12e-N is also a high-quality option for players interested in exploring the distinct acoustic palette of a nylon-string, with a compact body size for extra playing comfort.

The Academy 12e-N is easy to strum and fret, yielding a rewarding sound even in the hands of a newer player. It has a solid lutz spruce top with layered sapele back and sides, and genuine African ebony for the fingerboard and bridge. It also features a simplified armrest for increased comfort. Amplify your sound with Taylor ES-B electronics, which incorporate piezo design elements from the flagship ES2 system. Powered by a 9V battery, its onboard preamp includes a built-in digital chromatic tuner, an LED display for tuning and low battery indication, and a tone-sculpting 3-band EQ. Comes with a deluxe Taylor gig bag.
