A beautiful Koa body with a Sitka spruce top and Expression System electronics.
The Taylor 2012 K16ce Koa/Spruce Grand Symphony Acoustic Electric Guitar is a member of the Koa Series® of acoustic-electric guitars. This series offers a variety of body sizes, all with koa back and sides, and a choice of Sitka Spruce or Hawaiian Koa for the top. Each guitar presents an exotic feast of figure, color and sound. Koa’s visual allure is complemented with shimmering abalone trim around the top and soundhole, while figured maple binds the body, fingerboard, soundhole, and caps the heel. Each Koa Series Acoustic/ Electric is performance-ready, with a Venetian cutaway and Taylor’s Expression System® electronics. The K16ce features a Koa Grand Symphony body and a Sitka Spruce top.
Hawaiian Koa’s captivating beauty is matched by a tone that blossoms over time, especially in the midrange. Its voice is bright and focused, with warm overtones that slowly emerge, adding sweetness and depth. Premium all-wood appointments, led by the Tropical Vine fretboard inlay, celebrate the wood’s natural appeal.
Koa is among the most striking of all tonewoods — beautiful, distinctive tone, and yet, at times, so elusive. Producing the Koa Series is driven entirely by Taylor's ability to procure a consistent, quality-grade supply. Lately, they’ve been able to acquire some of the nicest koa available in a long, long time.
After a several-year hiatus, the Koa Series makes an impressive return, this time in both the Acoustic and Acoustic/Electric lines. Look for beautifully figured koa backs, sides, and optional tops. The dramatic maple binding on the Acoustic/Electrics complements the undulating koa in its own unique way.
The Koa Series will remain available only while our supplies last.
Natural Sound Made Simple
The Expression System (ES) is an all-magnetic acoustic guitar pickup system that works like a microphone to produce a pure signal and a warm, natural acoustic sound. When you plug in, you'll hear the sound of your guitar, not the sound of the pickup. No complicated controls. No tone simulators. Just a clean amplified acoustic guitar sound supported by three simple controls — volume, bass and treble.
