Taylor's Academy Series is new to 2017 and the underlying goal is to create guitars that bring Taylor's legendary playability and tone into a more accessible, affordable price range. One of the benefits of a nylon strung guitar is that the light string tension is kinder to the fingertips. Another inviting feature of the A12e-N is the built-in armrest which enhances playing comfort, at the same time as keeping your forearm off the soundboard, enabling the guitar to resonate freely. The guitar is made from sapele back and sides with a solid Lutz spruce top, which together with the internal bracing create a warm, mellow nylon voice, with crisp percussive appeal, lending itself greatly to both fingerpicking and flatpicking styles. The on-board ES-N pickup and preamp capture the character of the guitar perfectly, and allow the player additional tone-shaping control. The guitar is fitted with D'Addario Pro Arte Carbon Hard Tension strings.
