TME's most popular beginner guitar! This model is upgraded from the standard Academy model with a built-in pickup that doubles as a tuner.
From Taylor: Our signature Grand Concert body shape brings our high standards of comfort and playability to the Academy Series, our line of budget-friendly guitars. Built with new players in mind, the A12 incorporates a sleek body shape with our trademark neck design and an ergonomic armrest for a truly player-friendly experience.
A slightly shorter, 24 7/8-inch scale length also contributes to the smooth feel of the A12, making it easier to fret strings, hold chords, and bend notes as you learn to navigate the neck of an acoustic guitar.
But the A12 serves up more than just a comfortable feel, yielding a balanced, robust sound that mingles the sparkle of solid spruce with the punchy, responsive midrange of layered sapele. With that versatile sound and a forgiving, unintrusive design, the A12 gives you the power to pursue your musical inspiration, whether it's your first guitar or a new addition for your collection.
