Barcode: 887766127529


Designed with new players in mind but comfortable and accessible to guitarists of all ability levels, the Academy 12 is a compact Grand Concert acoustic guitar with a solid top and an easy-playing Taylor Neck. The solid spruce top, paired with layered sapele back and sides, generates projection, clarity and volume, making this a perfect option for learners seeking a guitar that will grow with them. This all-acoustic, non-cutaway model features a built-in armrest that takes the edge off your strumming arm for greater playing comfort. It ships with a lightweight gig bag for transportation between lessons, practice sessions and anywhere else your music takes you.
