Taylor 2007 GC-K Grand Concert Acoustic Guitar ES Hawaiian Koa

    Get The Edge With This Taylor 2007 GC-K Limited Grand Concert Acoustic Guitar Old Stock* Featuring A Solid Koa Back And Sides And Sitka Spruce Top - This Mastercrafted GC Offers Tonality With An Edge.

    Taylor's non-cutaway koa acoustic model showcases a completely different appointment package from their acoustic electric counterparts. Ivoroid binding applies a time-honored acoustic touch, while sparkling abalone outlines the tops and forms the rosette. All models come standard with a Sitka spruce top, with an optional koa top.

    A tropical hardwood, koa's tone blends the midrange focus of mahogany with the brighter top end of maple. Due to its density, a new koa guitar tends to start out sounding a little bright and tight, somewhat like maple. But the more a koa guitar is played, the more the sound opens up, expanding the midrange and rewarding the player with a richer, sweeter and more resonant voice.

    As a guitar soundboard, Sitka spruce is the tonewood standard for the modern era. It’s used with nearly all of the guitars that Taylor makes. Its combination of strength and elasticity translates into a broad dynamic range, yielding crisp articulation and allowing for everything from fingerpicking to aggressive strumming and flatpicking. Safe to say Sitka spruce is Bob Taylor’s personal favorite for an all-around great guitar.

    Taylor sources their Sitka Spruce from the coastal rainforests of Alaska and Canada. The soundboard choice for most guitars, Sitka spruce produces a broad dynamic range and accommodates a versatile range of playing styles. The most commonly used wood for guitar tops, Sitka generates a broad dynamic range and accommodates numerous playing styles, from aggressive strumming to fingerpicking.

    *Old Stock means this is a new, unsold guitar in our inventory. It may show extremely minor wear, or the case may have some minor scuffage, but this still carries the full Taylor Lifetime Warranty against possible factory defect.
