All-Koa 700 Series
Taylor Guitars has made a sweeping change to its 700 series, shifting from its longtime tonewood pairing of rosewood and spruce to an all-Hawaiian-koa body construction. The reimagined series launches with two new guitar models: the Grand Auditorium 724ce and Grand Concert 722ce. The new all-koa 700 series brings a compelling koa personality to the line compared to Taylor’s existing, highly-figured Koa series, channeling a more organic aesthetic. The new guitars feature new select-grade koa wood that boasts rich color variegation and straight-grain structure. The guitars are designed with ultra-thin matte finish and a modified back bracing pattern, a combination that minimizes the damping effect to produce a punchier, more vibrant and player-reflective koa guitar.
