If you're just starting out then Taylor's Academy 12e-N is made for you. Too often new guitar players will give up because the instrument quality is just not up to scratch; poor tone, high action and bad intonation makes it easy to become disheartened and give up learning guitar. Taylor used a simple design philosophy when designing the Academy series - the best, for the most, with the least. Gone are the non-essentials such as the pickguard and body binding, in its place are features that make the guitar affordable and more comfortable to play such as the built-in armrest and shorter scale length. Using nylon strings and a Grand Concert body shape with Lutz spruce top, layered sapele back & sides, and a sapele neck with ebony fingerboard, Taylor have managed to keep quality materials in the guitar without bumping up the price, and fitted with Taylor's ES-B pick-up/pre-amp you can easily plug in and play.
This acoustic/electric nylon-string Grand Concert from our Academy Series may be the best nylon-string guitar you’ll find for the money. The underlying design goal of the series is to make the acoustic guitar accessible to more players by bringing Taylor’s legendary playability and tone into an affordable price range. One of the benefits of a nylon-string guitar is that the light string tension is easy on the fingertips. Another inviting feature is a built-in armrest to enhance the playing comfort. Tonally, the wood pairing of layered sapele back and sides with a solid Lutz spruce top, together with the body’s internal bracing, project a warm, mellow nylon voice with crisp percussive appeal that suits a variety of musical styles and responds well to both fingerpicking and flatpicking. The onboard ES-B pickup includes a convenient digital tuner with an LED display for tuning and low battery indication. Whether you’re a steel-string player looking to add an affordable nylon-string to your acoustic toolbox or crave a great-sounding acoustic guitar that’s easy on the hands and the wallet, the A12-N is an option well worth exploring.
