This all-koa beauty blends a wood-rich aesthetic with the clear, warm and punchy voice of our 12-fret design. Visually, the guitar’s slotted peghead complements the body’s neo-vintage appearance, with figured maple binding adding a striking counterpoint against the shaded edgeburst finish treatment. Unique details include the koa/boxwood Ocean Vine inlay scheme and a rosette that features laser-cut maple arranged in an interlocked “fishbone”-style pattern. Tonally, the hardwood koa top adds a bit of compression to help level out the response, while the smaller Grand Concert body emphasizes clear note articulation, making this a great guitar for recording. The 12-fret neck and shifted bridge placement warm up the sound and boost the midrange projection, producing a rootsy character with a splash of koa’s high-fidelity response. In the end, players can expect an exceptionally versatile small-body guitar that responds well to both fingerstyle and strumming.
