The appearance, feel, and sound of this all-koa Grand Auditorium will delight fans of Hawaiian koa. The solid koa top, which is combined with layered koa back and sides, has a shaded edgeburst that enhances the vintage charm, while a gloss finish covers the body in a rich shine. The Grand Auditorium's melodic flexibility makes it an excellent all-around guitar for strumming and fingerpicking, and the hardwood koa top will level out a vigorous assault for a concentrated, linear sound. A cutaway and Taylor's ES2 acoustic electronics are two player-friendly contemporary features. A single-ring fake pearl rosette with an interlocking "fishbone" design, black binding, Italian acrylic tiny diamond inlays, and polished bronze tuners are among the standout features. A Taylor premium hardshell case is included.
