Taylor Guitars K series
Crafted to honor the natural beauty of its Hawaiian homeland, our Koa Series complements the exotic visual character of figured koa with wood-rich appointments, including our new Spring Vine inlay motif in maple. With the exception of our one-of-a-kind Builder’s Edition K14ce, all models sport a koa top and an artful shaded edgeburst treatment around the entire guitar. Players can expect an acoustic voice with exceptional focus, smooth balance, and a splash of top-end chime. Best of all, the tone will continue to blossom over time. In both looks and sound, these guitars promise to reveal their heirloom virtues in deeply satisfying ways.
Taylor Builder’s Edition K24ce
The latest koa entry in the Builder’s Edition family is this Grand Auditorium K24ce, build with all-solid Hawaiian koa with V-Class bracing under the hood. Sonically, it bears the hallmarks of koa’s unique tone, with high-end clarity balanced against the volume and sustain improvements delivered by the new bracing scheme. Koa’s inimitable aging properties also make this guitar a special find, opening and adding depth and sweetness as the guitar is played over time. Designed to optimize the player’s experience with a handful of ergonomic features, this model includes a double-contoured cutaway for easy playing all the way down to the highest frets, along with a smooth armrest that takes the pressure off the player’s strumming arm. The Silent Satin finish treatment adds a subtle visual touch while removing much of the incidental noise that comes from the player’s arm movement, making this an ideal choice for session or studio players looking to lay down tracks. It ships with ES2 electronics in a deluxe hardshell case.
Note: Builder’s Edition guitars are currently not available in left-handed configurations.
