Designed to offer a comfortable, affordable option for players seeking the nylon-string sound with player-friendly appointments, the Academy 12e-N serves up snappy classical tone with a feel that’s perfect for new learners and experienced players alike. Built with a solid spruce top for optimal projection, clarity and resonance, this compact Grand Concert acoustic-electric features radiused fretboard and a 1-7/8″ nut width that provides ample string spacing for fingerstyle play without putting undue strain on your fretting hand. And with built-in ES-N electronics and a lightweight gig bag for protection, the Academy 12e-N has everything a budding player could need.
A smaller-bodied guitar ideally suited for fingerstyle.
Layered wood construction is used to offer attractive, durable and affordable models.
This natural hybrid of Sitka and White spruce also shares characteristics with Adirondack spruce, responding with power, richness and volume.
