All-koa Taylor Dreadnought A/E with Eye-catching Appointments
The Taylor 220ce Deluxe Koa Dreadnought is one of those acoustic-electric guitars that sounds better every time you play it. Its all-koa construction offers a crisp snap with strong mids and sparkling highs that will become richer, sweeter, and more resonant with age. And playing this guitar often won't be a problem, by virtue of its comfortable sapele neck. Experience top-shelf amplified tone, courtesy of the onboard ES2 electronics. In addition to its striking koa body, the Taylor 220ce Deluxe Dreadnought also features eye-catching black binding, a single-ring faux pearl rosette with interlocking "fishbone" pattern, and Italian acrylic, small diamond fingerboard inlays.
The wonderful look and sound of koa
Koa is a treasured tonewood that's only found on the Hawaiian islands. In Hawaiian, koa means "bold," surely describing this wood's gorgeous, curly grain; figuring; and now, its rich acoustic tone. Koa is prized for its combination of warm tone and beautiful looks. This Taylor 220ce Deluxe Koa Dreadnought looks as good as it sounds!
Classic dreadnought shape delivers excellent tone and volume
The powerful voice and unrivaled projection of the traditional dreadnought body style has made it a top choice of strummers and flatpickers throughout history. The naturally deep lows, crisp highs, and open, airy midrange of Taylor's dreadnought body help to balance this acoustic-electric guitar's tone, yielding a sound that's equally at home with traditional bluegrass as it is with modern acoustic rock. If you're looking for a guitar that can handle aggressive picking and driving rhythms, you're going to love the Taylor 220ce Deluxe Koa Dreadnought.
Taylor's Expression System 2 delivers incredibly natural sound with full dynamics
If you play plugged in, then you're going to love the Taylor Expression System 2 (ES2) electronics built into your 220ce Deluxe Koa Dreadnought. The key to this fantastic system is the 3-section proprietary pickup located behind the saddle. Because of where it's positioned and how it's integrated into the 220ce Deluxe Koa Dreadnought's saddle, the ES2 pickup provides you with remarkably clear and accurate sound. In addition to a master volume control, a pair of tone controls lets you tweak your highs and lows to get the sound you need, and a discreet phase switch offers vital onboard feedback suppression. We were more than impressed when Taylor came to Sweetwater to show us what this system can do, and we think you will be too.
