Fans of Hawaiian koa will love the look, feel and sound of this all-koa Grand Auditorium. A shaded edgeburst elevates the vintage appeal of the solid koa top, which is paired with layered koa back and sides, while a gloss finish wraps the body in a rich sheen. The Grand Auditorium?s musical versatility makes this a great all-purpose guitar for both strumming and fingerpicking, and the hardwood koa top will even out a lively attack to produce a focused, linear voice. Player-friendly modern features include a cutaway and Taylor?s ES2 acoustic electronics. Among the distinctive appointments are a single-ring faux pearl rosette in an interlocking ?fishbone? pattern, black binding, Italian acrylic small diamond inlays, and chrome tuners. The guitar includes a Taylor deluxe hardshell case.
