Leo Kottke Signature Model - an instrument for a master fingerpicking player
Leo Kottke ranks among the world's best fingerpicking players - from blues to jazz to folk, Kottke has a style all his own. And, he's long relied on his Taylor 12-string guitars to produce that unmistakable sound. Here, Taylor has crafted a gorgeous 12-string - one of the most celebrated and popular 12-strings in their line, in fact - so you, too, can call upon Kottke's tone. Whether you're a passionate Kottke fan, an accomplished 12-string player seeking out a tremendous instrument, or a 6-string enthusiast looking to explore new ground - you simply can't go wrong with the Taylor Leo Kottke Signature Model.

First-rate tonewoods with a strong-voiced jumbo body
The Taylor Leo Kottke Signature Model features a jumbo body style - a departure from the rest of Taylor's 12-string line, which feature Taylor's Grand Auditorium body style. The jumbo body style provides a stronger sound - it's a great guitar for strumming, but you'll also find it provides a unique flavor and response when fingerpicking. The tonewoods in the Taylor Leo Kottke Signature Model only add to that rich tone - this instrument features a tropical American mahogany back and sides, a Sitka spruce top, Indian rosewood binding, and a special bracing system. The result? Phenomenal acoustic tone.

Taylor's prestigious 12-string family
There's no question, Taylor's 12 string guitars are an integral part of the company's history - and among the best-sounding 12-strings in the world. Since the late 1970s, Taylor has been crafting these incredible instruments - as always, with an emphasis on playability, intonation, and rich sound. And if you've ever wrapped your arms around a Taylor 12-string, you'll know exactly what we mean. Each Taylor 12-string guitar is a unique gem - and they're available with a tremendous range of tonewoods, so you're sure to find the right voice to complement your sound.
