But, to focus on koa’s tone right as it comes out of the box is to miss half the story, because Taylor’s koa series guitars sound better and better the more you play them. Their overall voice opens up, their midrange becomes richer with warm overtones, their high end becomes more lush and crystalline, and their bass response deepens. So, even though these guitars sound gorgeous today, they’ll be even more amazing down the road if you invest enough playing time in them.
Perhaps that is why koa is Bob Taylor’s favorite wood: it grows and changes over time with its owner, and it encourages you to play more. Not to mention, it looks fit for an art gallery. We’re proud to showcase these beautiful guitars that grow with you as you play, and we hope you find a koa series Taylor that inspires you to reach new heights on your fretboard journey.
