Hawaiian koa's evocative natural beauty is showcased to the fullest with Taylor's handsome Koa Series. It starts with finely figured koa sets. Premium all-wood detailing includes Taylor's fluid Island Vine fretboard inlay, featuring maple and blackwood, with Hawaiian plumeria flowers doubling as fret markers and reappearing as a headstock inlay. Rosewood binding, maple top trim, and a maple/rosewood rosette supply additional wood-rich accents, while a shaded edgeburst along the body and neck add vintage charm. Tonally, these all-koa guitars blend a focused midrange with top-end brightness, yielding a controlled response that will grow warmer and more responsive, especially to fingerstylists, as the wood ages and the guitar is played in. Taylor's onboard Expression System 2 acoustic electronics deliver stage-ready amplified tone that resonates with as much natural character as the koa itself.
