Tone

The tone?   That is where the Taylor K24ce Koa really shines. The Koa tone wood provides a much more elegant, refined attack than spruce, with the notes seeming to roll out of the guitar smoothly, and then hang out for a bit, seeming to fade away just as smoothly. This creates not just a longer sustain, but a superior relationship between the notes that Koa is known for as a tone-wood. Koa guitars are also known to age incredibly well, with the guitars seeming to open up more and more with each passing year, adding considerable depth and character to the tone.
