Built with new players in mind, the A12 incorporates a sleek body shape with 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.
  • Industry-standard solid Sitka Spruce top ensures strong projection even with the A12's compact size
  • Layered Sapele back and sides make the guitar stable and resilient in the face of travel and climate changes
  • Bevelled armrest and short-scale/narrow nut-width neck provide better ergonomics for improved comfort and playability
