K28e First Edition
Price: $5,198 US MSRP / Series: Koa
K28e First Edition

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 K28e makes its debut with a special release of 100 First Edition models. In addition to the beautiful wood-rich appointments that characterize other standard Koa Series models, premium design touches on the First Editions include AA-grade koa and tone-enhancing Adirondack spruce bracing.

Legacy Model

If you would like to inquire about ordering one through Taylor’s Custom program, please contact your local Taylor dealer or call us at 1-800-943-6782 in North America.
