Until now, torrefied spruce tops have been reserved for our maple 600 Series, so this koa/torrefied Sitka spruce beauty serves up a unique treat in both look and sound. The cutaway Grand Auditorium sports a back and sides of fetching Hawaiian koa normally reserved for our Koa Series. The torrefied spruce soundboard lends a played-in quality to the guitar’s overall voice, enriching koa’s natural midrange presence and top-end brightness with extra warmth and responsiveness. Visually, a shaded-edgeburst wraps the body in refined neo-vintage charm (and complements the darker color of the torrefied top), while each “smoky” ebony fretboard sports unique variegation, giving each guitar a one-of-a-kind appearance. Pearl Century fretboard inlays, a colorful paua rosette, and ebony bridge pins dotted with abalone supply sparkling accents, while our ES2 electronics invite you to plug in. There’s a lot to love about this guitar.
