Taylor's Academy series bring legendary Taylor sound and playabilty to an affordable price point. With a solid Lutz Spruce top, and Sapele back and sides, the 12-N projects a voice with clarity and conviction. This nylon string, Concert body acoustic has an inviting presence, with its soft touch and sound, and the built-in armrest. Purely acoustic; this warm, percussive sounding Nylon string has a minimal construction and is incredibly budget conscious.
A simple wooden inlay in the guitar's rosette highlights the simplistic beauty in this Academy Series 12-N. A thin Varnish has been applied to the top, back, and sides of this guitar, creating a smooth, satin-like feel to the touch. Traditionally, the 12-N has a slotted headstock, with Pearloid tuners-this adds an element of sophistication to the instrument's minimalist aesthetic.
