A Koa Grand Symphony Guitar!!
Taylor Guitars has brought back its popular Koa Series and created a new koa GS-K! Over the past decade, Hawaiian koa, the beautiful and rare tonewood, has steadily increased in popularity, although the supply of high quality koa fluctuates drastically. Taylor has been extremely conservative in its koa usage in recent years, employing koa mainly for tops for the electric T5 Custom, short runs of Limited Editions, and the occasional custom upgrade.
Thanks to the exhaustive efforts of Taylor's wood purchasers, however, a new koa source has been developed and contracted, yielding what company president, Bob Taylor, calls, "some of the most beautiful koa wood I've ever seen!" Now in 2007, aficionados can once again buy a koa Taylor Acoustic guitar, while the supply lasts. The GS-k is the first standard koa version of Taylor's industry award-winning Grand Symphony.Taylor GS-K Koa Series Acoustic Guitar features:
- Solid Hawaiian koa backs and sides
- Sitka spruce top (optional koa)
- Three-ring abalone rosette
- Gold Taylor tuners
- Ivoroid binding with black purfling
- Koa Series fretboard inlay
