The Taylor 2012 K56ce-L Koa/Spruce Grand Symphony 12 String Left-Handed 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. Hawaiian Koa' 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' natural appeal. Each Koa Series Acoustic/ Electric is performance-ready, with a Venetian cutaway and Taylor' Expression System® electronics. The K56ce features a Koa Grand Symphony body and a Sitka Spruce top.
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.

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.

Just a clean amplified acoustic guitar sound supported by three simple controls ” volume, bass and treble.
