The dazzling look and sound of Hawaiian koa have made it a coveted material with which to build guitars for decades. Today's Koa 700 Series from Taylor brings a true and full koa experience to modern players seeking out that distinct visual aesthetic and tonal shimmer.
In the Koa 700 Series, the Hawaiian wood is given a royal treatment. Making up the entire body of the 722ce, select grade Hawaiian koa comes together to establish an exceptional acoustic voice. Hawaiian koa's bright visual patterns complement the dazzling tonal character of the wood.
Building on the koa body, fine Taylor materials contribute to the overall experience of this unique instrument. A Neo-Tropical mahogany neck and West African ebony fingerboard fit seamlessly in hand for easy riffing and fretting. An ultra-thin matte finish enhances the 722ce's feel in hand without hindering the natural Hawaiian koa voice. This unique finish contrasts from other Taylor koa guitars, those normally treated with a gloss finish. A punchier projection separates this matte finish from gloss. Further appointments to the 722ce include "Fountain" mother-of-pearl inlays, an Indian rosewood body binding treatment, and Taylor polished bronze tuners.
An outstanding example of Taylor crafting expertise, Hawaiian koa is given a loving, celebratory treatment.
