For The Players
The smaller Grand Concert body shape with a cutaway is ideally suited for intricate finger style players. This Nylon string version is a great addition to your arsenal.
Taylor believe a guitar should offer the best playing experience from day one. So they’ve brought legendary Taylor build quality to this entry level guitar.
You also get a shorter scale length than some other body shapes, reducing the string tension and making the guitar easier to play.
The ergonomic slice taken from the top of the body makes it really comfortable to play, as well as looking a lot more expensive. At this price point you’re unlikely to find such cool innovations on any other acoustic guitar!
The back and sides are made from layered Sapele, a durable and affordable solution which still provides a natural, full sound that you would expect from a Taylor. Combined with the dynamic Lutz top, the A12-N sounds natural and balanced.
Here’s what Taylor say about the A12-N
This acoustic nylon-string Grand Concert from our Academy Series may be the best nylon-string guitar you’ll find for the money. The underlying design goal of the series is to make the acoustic guitar accessible to more players by bringing Taylor’s legendary playability and tone into an affordable price range.
One of the benefits of a nylon-string guitar is that the light string tension is easy on the fingertips. Another inviting feature is a built-in armrest to enhance the playing comfort. Tonally, the wood pairing of layered sapele back and sides with a solid Lutz spruce top, together with the body’s internal bracing, project a warm, mellow nylon voice with crisp percussive appeal that suits a variety of musical styles and responds well to both fingerpicking and flatpicking.
Whether you’re a steel-string player looking to add an affordable nylon-string to your acoustic toolbox or crave a great-sounding acoustic guitar that’s easy on the hands and the wallet, the A12-N is an option well worth exploring.
