This brand new Taylor koa 12-Fret limited run is typically available only through Taylor's exclusive custom shop build-to-order program. The model is based on the popular grand concert body size with a neck joint on the 12th fret rather than the 14th fret. This design brings the soundhole and bridge closer to the tail of the guitar, resulting in a sweeter midrange response and a deeper bass.
The slotted headstock also gives the guitar a different tonality. The strings' now have a more acute break angle resulting in a greater downforce on the bone nut. This provides for more efficient vibration and tonal transfer. The warmer midrange of a 12 fret design is also enhanced by the 24.75" scale length and the use of AAA solid Hawaiian koa in the guitar's top, back, & sides. Hawaiian koa has great articulation and sweet harmonics.
This limited run is decorated with premium all-wood appointments and an intricate Ocean Vine fretboard inlay. An equally gorgeous shaded edgeburst adds a final touch to a visually stunning guitar that will certainly not disappoint.
