Master Grade Quatersawn Hawaiian Koa

I love Taylor's T5 and I have been blessed to own many. From plain maple all the way up to this masterpiece. The three guitars pictures are all mine and are all different grades of Koa. In the picture on of the two six strings you can see a standard T5C2 Koa.  The one next to it is Premium Koa while the 12-string is Master grade Koa offered as a special order option for select Taylor Dealers.   I wanted you to see what the difference in figuring between standard, Premium and Master grade tops. If you were to get a Taylor like this you'd have to use their BTO program and spend 4K.  

I have nicknamed this guitar "E.K.G." First, your heart will stop when you see it up close, This is truly quilted Koa which is super-rare. Second, Look at the sap line running above the bridge in the middle of the guitar.  This is a one of a kind piece of Koa

Of all my Taylor's this is one is hands down the best looking most talked about top.  Koa T5s are not rare but a top like this one is. I have done my best to capture the true beauty in the perfect book matched Koa but honestly, you have to see this guitar to fully appreciate it and see it in different lighting, it is a work of art.  If you look closely at the pictures will see the perfect book match and 3D nature of the wood.  The lighter shaded wood is also a real eye catcher. Koa is known for having a wide range of colors from golden tans to burnished reds and browns and this example is a really great showcase for how beautiful KOA is. If it were just beautiful, it would be a worth piece of art to hang on the wall but this is a hand made  Taylor and is far and away the best playing best sounding 12 string you will ever touch.  I cannot express how incredible this T5 sounds.  It's capable of delivering beautiful clean/acoustic tone, and the built in electronics allow you to fine tune the exact tone you want.  You can dial in AC/DC through either Humbucker and there's enough flexibility to give you country, classic rock, jazz, and rockabilly (Gretsch)  tones also.  It's an incredible guitar for live shows and leading worship!   

Go read my feedback and profile, see why I have over a dozen repeat buyers! Like all my guitars, this T5 is on sale in other places for less money. Feel free to call me for more information and questions at 952-686-1130. This number does not accept texts.
