Taylor 724ce Koa Grand Auditorium Electro Acoustic Overview
With the new all-koa 700 Series, Taylor master designer Andy Powers has embraced koa’s natural beauty and sonic virtues in a fresh way that reveals a distinctive musical personality compared to Taylor’s Koa Series.
Where the Taylor Koa Series showcases an ultra-refined look and sound, with figured wood, rich appointments, gloss finish and a smooth voice, the new 700 Series channels more of koa’s natural character in look, feel and sound.
Select-grade koa boasts rich color variegation and straight grain structure. A new back bracing pattern, together with ultra-thin matte finish, coaxes a livelier, punchier, more direct response from the guitar, making it exceptionally player-reflective. The thin finish also creates a warm and inviting tactile sensation with the natural wood texture, making players feel even more connected to the guitar.
A new suite of appointments includes mother-of-pearl Fountain fretboard/inlays, rosewood binding (including soundhole), maple/rosewood top edge trim, a paua/rosewood rosette, a dark-stained maple pickguard and Taylor polished bronze tuners.
Model offerings include the Grand Auditorium 724ce and Grand Concert 722ce.
