Taylor Guitars has become known for their iconic Hawaiian Koa guitars. After seeing and playing the newly redesigned all Koa Taylor K24ce V-Class Guitar we can see why these have become the chosen instruments by artists such as John Denver and Taylor Swift. The Koa top changes the overtones and projection of the guitar to produce a sweet and balanced tone with natural compression.
This is what the good people at Taylor Guitars say about the new K24ce V-Class Guitar...
"Among the first Taylor models to be voiced with our patented V-Class™ bracing, this beautiful all-koa Grand Auditorium K24ce acoustic guitar will inspire players in both looks and sound. The hardwood koa top helps produce a balanced response across the tonal spectrum, with a clear, focused voice that lends itself to amplification through our onboard ES2 electronics. With the V-Class treatment, players can expect more dynamic range, more sustain, and notes that sound more in tune with each other than ever before, giving chords a more sonically pleasing character along the entire fretboard. Together with our popular Grand Auditorium body, the musical versatility makes this a guitar that can cover a lot of ground. Visually, koa’s shimmering figure is highlighted with organically styled appointments that include our new Spring Vine inlay in maple, with maple binding and top trim adding a creamy counterpoint against the shaded edgeburst finish that surrounds the entire guitar."
