When it's time to perform, ES2 electronics produce top-notch amplified tone. In addition to its stunning koa body, the Taylor 224ce Deluxe Grand Auditorium also features gorgeous black binding, a single-ring faux pearl rosette with interlocking "fishbone" pattern, and Italian acrylic, small diamond fingerboard inlays.
The wonderful look and sound of Koa
Koa is a treasured tonewood that's only found on the Hawaiian islands. In Hawaiian, Koa means "bold," surely describing this wood's gorgeous, curly grain; figuring; and now, its rich acoustic tone. Koa is prized for its combination of warm tone and beautiful looks. This Taylor 224ce Deluxe Koa Grand Auditorium looks as good as it sounds!
