Taylor Academy 12 w/ Bag
Designed specifically to provide a comfortable, well built guitar for budget conscious beginners, Taylor's Academy Series delivers exceptionally well on those principles. Thanks to it's slightly shorter scale length (measuring up at 24-7/8-inch) the Academy 12 has a more relaxed string tension that makes for easier and more comfortable playing. With the 12's Academy Series Armrest, you can wrap your arm around this bold sounding acoustic for extended periods of time without the discomfort of the sharp edges you find on conventional acoustics.
Taylor's signature Grand Concert body has a spectacular sound, and with its small size and brilliantly designed contours it is a perfect choice for a beginner in need of a comfortable feeling acoustic. With a Solid Sitka Spruce top the Academy gains the signature dynamic range of this well loved tonewood. The Layered Sapele back and sides give the Academy 10 an impressive look in the way of wood figuring, all the while providing a mellow, balanced tonal foundation.
Comes with Taylor's Deluxe Padded Gig Bag.
