Price: $5,458 US MSRP / Series: Koa

The K28e boasts the bold yet balanced voice of its Grand Orchestra body shape, flavored with koa’s unique tone profile: a blend of strong fundamental notes and top-end sparkle. The koa top tends to impart a more controlled attack compared to spruce, so the notes roll in more softly and then linger, producing extended sustain. With additional time and playing, the guitar will continue to open up to become warmer, sweeter and more responsive. The beautiful wood-rich appointment motif features our fluid Island Vine inlay, Indian rosewood binding, maple top trim, and a rosewood/maple rosette. The guitar comes equipped with Taylor’s Expression System 2 acoustic electronics for pro-level amplified tone.
