Taylor Koa and Cocobolo Autumn Limiteds

Published: Thu September 25, 2008  News Feed
Taylor Guitars is celebrating autumn with an exciting array of 2008 Autumn Limited Editions, which feature two of the world’s most beautiful and sought-after tonewoods, Hawaiian koa and Mexican cocobolo.  Set for an October retail debut, the 2008 Fall Limiteds are offered in two distinct koa/cocobolo combinations on the Grand Symphony (GS), the Grand Auditorium (GA) and the Grand Concert (GC), while the 700 series limited includes a unique koa touch. 

With a bold voice and tone, the Koa GS Limited features exquisite, shimmering Hawaiian koa back and sides, and a mini back-wedge and binding of rich, exotic cocobolo. On a Cocobolo GS Limited, the woods are reversed, with swirling red-figured cocobolo forming the back and sides, and visual accents provided by a koa mini-wedge and koa binding. Non-cutaway Koa GS Limited and Cocobolo GS Limiteds are also available.

Taylor's popular Grand Auditorium body shape is well-represented in the 2008 Fall Limited lineup by the Koa GA Limited (pictured right) and Cocobolo GA Limited (pictured right), with premium appointments of gold Gotoh tuners, a bone nut and saddle, as well as an abalone top. The small-bodied, non-cutaway Grand Concerts, the Koa GC Limited and Cocobolo GC Limited, are topped with an elegant slotted headstock and feature a Sitka spruce top, and a cocobolo backstrap, with delicate pinstripe binding along the fretboard and peghead.

For the limited release, a new, premium, tone-enhancing feature was added to the GS, GA and GC styles: Adirondack spruce bracing. Adirondack is known for its extra elasticity that emits a sweeter, more balanced acoustic voice, a sound enhancement that company President Bob Taylor calls "magical."

"All the notes across the spectrum become both more powerful and sweeter with Adirondack," says Taylor. "It has a curious elasticity which is really exploited when we use it for bracing."
