4 YEAR EXTENDED WARRANTY SCHEME

The product price includes 2 years' warranty and 30 day money back guarantee.

However, the Gear4music extended warranty scheme provides an enhanced service, and is designed to offer a higher level of protection than many 'free' warranties offered by some retailers and manufacturers.

The highlights of this enhanced warranty service are:

  • Warranty is extended to 4 years from the date of delivery.
  • Our Money Back guarantee is extended from 30 days to 60 days (terms apply after 30 days)
  • Collection and delivery costs are included for the first 2 years
  • Claim 50% cash back on the cost of the policy after 4 years if it has not been used!
  • Warranty is transferable if the item is re-sold
  • Loan or replacement equipment will be provided if the product isn't repaired within 30 days
  • If an item can not be repaired, a similar alternative product or cash discount (as defined in this policy) will be offered
  • The policy can be cancelled within 30 days, and at any time after that for a pro-rata discount

Please note that this extended warranty is currently only available on products sold within the EU or EEA, and is subject to the terms and conditions as detailed on the extended warranty certificate provided.

For customers in outlying areas of the country, the price of the Extended Warranty may be marginally higher, due to the potential for higher collection and redelivery transport costs.

This enhanced warranty is in addition to the standard Gear4music and manufacturer warranty policies, and the Gear4music terms and conditions of trade. No statement or condition of sale contained within these terms affects or restricts your statutory rights as defined under the Consumer Contracts Regulation 2014.

Grand Concert

The grand concert body is significantly smaller than the grand auditorium, providing a big sound in a comfortable design. Built with a tapered waist and shorter scale, as well as a lighter string tension, the grand concert shape is perfect for in the studio and on stage. Fingerpickers will love with the clarity and precision of this exceptionally designed guitar body.

Tonewoods

Sitka spruce offers a combination of strength and elasticity, delivering a broad dynamic range with crisp articulation. The A12e is ideal for travelling musicians, as the layered sapele body provides extra resilience in fluctuating humidity conditions, for a durable guitar.

Fingerboard

The Taylor A12e Academy Series guitar features an ebony fingerboard, which offers a strong, rigid surface keeping the neck straighter and provides an ideal platform for percussive styles like tapping and hammer-ons. Another benefit of an ebony fingerboard offers a smooth surface, that reduces finger fatigue and allows for fast, complex styles.

Electronics

For added volume at larger events, the A12e features an ES-B pickup and preamp system. This innovative pickup incorporates Taylor's Expression system 2 piezo design, and features an LED display and a built-in digital chromatic tuner. Players can easily shape their sound using the tone and volume controls, located on the discreet sidemount on the upper bout.

Strings

The Taylor A12e is equipped with a set of phosphor bronze strings from Elixir. These steel strings are coated with an ultra-thin coating that eliminates gunk from getting between the windings, and delivering a consistent performance and tone. As well as tone, these strings reduce finger squeak and are the ideal choice for recording.

Features

  • Equipped with an ES-B pickup/preamp, along with a built-in chromatic tuner
  • Grand concert body shape delivers a strong projective sound
  • Sitka spruce top and layered sapele deliver broad dynamic range
  • Includes Taylor gig bag for transportation and storage
  • High quality Elixir phosphor bronze strings
