TAYLOR K22E 12-FRET LTD HAWAIIAN KOA


This 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 better tonality. The strings now have a more acute break angle, resulting in a greater downforce on the bone nut to allow for more efficient vibration and tonal transfer. The use of AAA solid Hawaiian koa gives the guitar 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. This consigned guitar has been well cared by its previous owner and is as good as new.
