What we say:

At A Glance:

The Academy 12 brings taylor's Grand Concert body shape to the Academy series, and is designed with the new player in mind, with a slightly shorter scale length to make fretting notes and chords that little bit easier.

Features We Love:

Comfortable, Beveled Armrest

The guitar has a beveled armrest for added comfort. This feature is usually reserved for the absolute top-end Taylor guitars. It’s a refreshing and bold move to include it on such an affordable model!

Quality, Affordable Materials

The 12 is made with a solid Sitka Spruce soundboard and an Ebony fingerboard. Taylor have ensured that the most important elements to playing - sound, feel and comfort - are the number one priority. Costs are kept down by using layered Sapele for the back and sides, and by keeping the finish Matte. Instead of extra decorative elements, a simple sound hole rosette and dot inlays are used.


  • Comfortable to play thanks to the beveled armrest
  • Fantastic value without compromising on quality
  • Very easy to play with its slightly shorter scale length

Customer reviews

Overall Rating 5 (2 reviews)

Very comfortable to play especially since learning. Particularly like the shaved off section which avoids your right arm not leaning on a sharp corner when strumming

Gillian W. - 5/8/2021

It's a beautiful guitar, light and comfortable but with fantastic resonance and a really lovely neck.
