Built with new players in mind, the Grand Concert size A12 incoporates a sleek body shape with our trademark neck design and an ergonomic armrest for a truly player-friendly experience with maximum comfort. This guitar is perfect for beginners who want a good quality guitar with easy playability for a fraction of the price. A slightly shorter 24-7/8-inch scale length makes it easier for players to fret strings, hold chords, and bend notes in the beginning stages of learning how to play acoustic guitar. The Taylor Academy A12 features a Sitka spruce top, layered sapele back and sides, a mahogany neck with a genuine ebony fingerboard, and tone-enhancing varnish finish. Comes with a gig bag for easy portability.
