As one of our very first 12-string guitars built with V-Class bracing in the jumbo-style Grand Orchestra body shape, the K68e LTD offers a totally distinctive playing experience elevated by its gorgeously figured Hawaiian koa back, sides and top. Serving up big, lush, sparkling octave shimmer with a refined midrange character, this model benefits from the large lung capacity of the Grand Orchestra body, which yields serious projection and tonal depth with remarkable sensitivity to a soft touch, while our V-Class bracing dials up louder volume, longer sustain and cleaner harmony between notes. This model is appointed with wood-forward elements such as maple body binding, a single-ring maple rosette and an intricate Spring Vine inlay in maple. Other appointments include ultra-precise Gotoh 510 tuners in antique gold and a gloss-finish body with a shaded edgeburst.
Taylor's biggest body shape blends power, detail and balance across the tonal spectrum.
Few woods carry the allure of Hawaiian koa, with its gorgeous figure and sweet, complex tone.
A koa top's visual beauty is instantly inspiring, while its sonic rewards unfold over time, as warm, sweet overtones gradually emerge.

The Expression System® 2 captures more of a guitar’s dynamic properties using a breakthrough behind-the-saddle design.
