Welcome to the all-new koa 700 Series from Taylor Guitars, where a new grade of beautiful Hawaiian koa reveals a unique look, sound and feel with two strikingly appointed models. The series debuts with the versatile Grand Auditorium 724ce and the compact Grand Concert 722ce, two acoustic-electric guitars made with back, sides and top of solid Select-grade Hawaiian koa. Compared to the smooth, refined voice of Taylor’s Koa Series guitars, these koa 700 Series guitars yield a vibrant, punchy sound that brings extra vibrancy to koa’s signature midrange sweetness. V-Class bracing inside both models levels up the volume and sustain, with heightened responsiveness to the player’s attack. Both models are dressed in a super-thin matte finish that optimizes resonance and preserves the raw feel of the visually stunning wood. Other aesthetic details include polished bronze tuners, new Fountain inlays in mother-of-pearl, rosewood binding, a paua shell rosette, and a dark-stained maple pickguard. The ES2 electronics included in both guitars serve up faithful amplified tone, and both models ship with a deluxe hardshell guitar case.
