Distinctive koa look and tone in Taylor' signature shape.
Taylor' 2012 Koa/Spruce Series GA-K Acoustic Guitar showcases a different appointment package than Taylor' other acoustic models. 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. For an extra vintage look, a shaded edgeburst is offered as a standard model option.
Grand Auditorium (GA)
The GA-K is offered in Taylor' signature shape. The mid-size grand auditorium falls between a dreadnought and grand concert. The shape produces an original acoustic voice that is big enough to handle medium-strength picking and strumming, yet with impressive balance across the tonal spectrum, especially in the midrange, producing clear, well-defined notes that suited both strumming and fingerstyle playing. The GA' overall presence tracks well with other instruments both in a studio mix and on stage.
A tropical hardwood, koa's tone blends the midrange of mahogany with the 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. The more a koa guitar is played, the more the sound opens up, expanding the midrange and rewarding the player with a richer, sweeter, more resonant tone.
