With its dazzling beauty and distinctive musical character, Hawaiian koa has long been a beloved tonewood in the Taylor line.

Hawaiian koa has long inspired guitar lovers with its unique blend of stunning visual character and an acoustic voice that grows warmer and sweeter over time. With our Koa Series, we treat koa like the superstar tonewood it is, presenting a thoughtfully curated mix of guitars. Players will hear a vibrant midrange response with clear trebles and a dash of low-end warmth for a balanced sound that can adapt across playing styles. Models include a pair of ultra-premium Builder’s Edition gems that offer a choice between a koa or torrefied spruce top, the compact GT K21ce, an all-koa 12-fret Grand Concert and an all-koa Grand Symphony featuring our soundport cutaway. Elegant wood detailing and a shaded edgeburst elevate koa’s natural aesthetic appeal.
