Frequently Asked Questions about Taylor Koa Guitars

Question: What is so special about Koa?
Koa is special for a number of reasons. Firstly, it is rare and appears hardly anywhere on the planet. In fact, the only place you can actually find Koa growing is in the Hawaiian Islands. Secondly, Koa has fantastic sonic qualities: it is relatively similar to Mahogany mixed with a little bit of Rosewood. That means you can expect a strong, direct sound with a good level of brightness and an emphasis on the midrange. Lastly, Koa is spectacular to look at. Its wide and expressive graining often results in very distinctive and beautiful pieces of wood.
