Stunning Koa 12-string A/E Guitar
The Taylor K66ce 12-string acoustic-electric guitar features a Grand Symphony body style with single Florentine cutaway and beautiful, amazing-sounding Hawaiian koa wood for its top, back, and sides. This gorgeous wood is accentuated by breathtaking rosewood and maple body binding and gold hardware. The K66ce's tropical mahogany neck is topped with a quality ebony fingerboard and island vine inlays. You'll love the excellent midrange projection and beautiful 12-string shimmer you get out of this great-playing Taylor K66ce 12-string acoustic-electric guitar.
The rich sound and look of Hawaiian koa
Koa is a treasured tonewood that's prized for its combination of warm tone and beautiful looks, and it's only found on the Hawaiian islands. The Taylor K66ce 12-string guitar has an all-koa body that combines the midrange richness of mahogany with the sparkling top end of maple. The Grand Symphony body style further enhances the wide-ranging tone and excellent balance of the 12-string K66ce. And because solid tonewoods are used, the K66ce's voice will become richer and more complex as the years go by.
Huge, balanced tone with articulation
Bob Taylor developed the Grand Symphony body style to push the sonic envelope (yet again). Deeper, fuller, and louder than a Grand Auditorium body style, the GS serves up sonorous, piano-esque lows, solid midrange, and confident treble. Whether strummed or flatpicked, the Taylor K66ce gives your notes articulation — even with a light attack. The Grand Symphony is a body style that arrives ready to play with the big boys.
Traditionally, acoustic-electric guitars have employed under-saddle piezo transducers, but Taylor has discovered a better way. Their revolutionary Expression System 2 uses a proprietary pickup behind the saddle. The pickup's three individually calibrated, precisely positioned piezo-electric sensors respond organically to the instrument's acoustic energy as it's transferred through the saddle. In concert with Taylor's custom-designed preamp (which delivers a 25% hotter signal), the result is a more natural acoustic sound with incredible dynamic range and responsiveness to your pick or finger attack. Sweetwater's guitar gurus are mightily impressed with Taylor's Expression System 2. Whether you're playing onstage through a PA, plugged into an acoustic amp, or going direct into recording software, the ES2 faithfully conveys the voice of your Taylor K66ce 12-string guitar.
