Taylor 724ce Koa - Grand Auditorium

Timeless Koa appeal – reimagined with a vibrant new voice.

With the new all-solid-koa 700 Series, Taylor master designer Andy Powers has embraced Hawaiian koa’s natural beauty and sonic virtues in a fresh way that brings a distinctive musical personality to the Taylor line. Compared to the established Koa Series, which showcases an ultra-refined look and sound, featuring figured koa, rich appointments, gloss finish and a smooth voice, the koa 700 Series channels more of koa’s natural character in look, feel and sound.

Back in 2015, Taylor formed a Hawaii-based partnership with tonewood supplier Pacific Rim Tonewoods to supply and grow Hawaiian koa for the future. (The company is called Siglo Tonewoods.) Part of Taylor's commitment is to contribute to current forest restoration efforts in Hawaii on a project basis through contracts with Hawaiian landowners. As specified in these stewardship agreements, Siglo is permitted to cut a select number of designated koa trees, and in exchange, we invest dollar for dollar in a host of forest improvement projects. 

These arrangements have enabled us to cut into more koa logs ourselves and discover far more varieties of koa wood, featuring a rich palette of colors with beautiful striping. (We hadn’t previously been exposed to this type of koa in dealing with suppliers.) We gave this wood its own classification as Select-grade.

Powers was excited by the new opportunities this wood presented. It inspired him to design what became the Koa 700 Series. He wanted to honor the unique
characteristics of this wood by offering players another compelling koa playing experience.

 

As always, this guitar ships fully insured with signature required.
