Academy 12-N

This nylon-string Grand Concert from our Academy Series may be the best nylon-string guitar youll find for the money. The underlying design goal of the series is to make the acoustic guitar accessible to more players by bringing Taylors 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 bodys 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. Whether youre a steel-string player looking to add an affordable nylon-string to your acoustic toolbox or crave a great-sounding acoustic guitar thats easy on the hands and the wallet, the Academy 12-N is an option well worth exploring.
