Timeless Koa appeal – reimagined with a vibrant new voice!

Redesigned with back, sides and top of solid Hawaiian Koa, the new Taylor 724ce preserves the sweetness and midrange sparkle of our Koa Series guitars and adds a punchier, bolder attack—making it a versatile guitar that brings a lively voice to any musical application.

How the Koa Series Was Born
•Back in 2015, Taylor formed a Hawaii-based partnership with tonewood supplier Pacific Rim Tonewoods to supply and grow Hawaiian Koa for the future. (The company is called Siglo Tonewoods.)

•Part of our commitment is to contribute to current forest restoration efforts in Hawaii on a project basis through contracts with Hawaiian landowners.

•As specified in these stewardship agreements, Siglo is permitted to cut a select number of designated Koa trees, and in exchange, we invest dollar for dollar in a host of forest improvement projects.

•These arrangements have enabled us to cut into more Koa logs ourselves and discover far more varieties of Koa wood, featuring a rich palette of colors with beautiful striping. (We hadn’t previously been exposed to this type of Koa in dealing with suppliers.) We gave this wood its own classification as Select-grade.

•Taylor master builder Andy Powers was excited by the new opportunities this wood presented .It inspired him to design what became the Koa700 Series. He wanted to honor the unique characteristics of this wood by offering players another compelling Koa playing experience. Unique Design Features
