All About Hawaiian Koa
Koa’s seductive charms are legendary. You’ll find an array of koa model options across the Taylor line, boasting a broad range of body styles, voicings, features and appointments.
Koa can display a mix of golden-brown hues, with grain that ranges from straight to wavy to highly figured. As a hardwood, it’s used for acoustic guitar backs and sides, and as a top wood.
Koa is known for its woody midrange character, boasting warmth and clarity along with clear trebles. With time and playing, koa’s voice can grow sweeter and more resonant.
We use Hawaiian koa across the Taylor line, with select models from the Baby Taylor, GS Mini and 200 Series, and with the 700 and Koa Series, which includes Builder’s Edition models.
All-Solid Koa Guitars
Solid tonewoods generate the most complex and most character-rich acoustic sound. Over time and with extended playing, the tone of guitars made with solid woods tends to grow more resonant.
Solid / Layered Koa Guitars
Each of these models features a solid-wood top with layered koa back and sides. These deliver rich, bold sound in a package that’s more affordably priced for new learners and everyday guitar players while still showcasing koa’s striking visual appeal.
Hawaiian Koa for Your Home
Koa’s density, durability and visual beauty make it a great material for other uses, such as our guitar wall hangers and kitchenware from our sister company, Stella Falone.
Complement and showcase your koa Taylor guitar with a matching wall hanger featuring the Nouveau peghead inlay in Italian acrylic.
Stella Falone crafts beautiful kitchen utensils from the same tonewoods that go into our guitars. Add a flash of koa color to your kitchen with the new koa Café Serving paddle and ebony tongs.
