    Taylor K66ce Koa Grand Symphony Cutaway Acoustic-Electric Guitar, 12-String Product Description

    The Taylor K66ce Koa 12 String Grand Symphony Cutaway ES Acoustic Electric Guitar stands alone when comparing both sound and comfort of play. The finest sets of Hawaiian Koa have the best possible combinations of sounds over time since Koa starts out with a top end Maple type sound and opens up into a midrange like mahagony. When beauty is desired and required while maintaining smooth and comfortable play, the contoured ebony armrest is the perfect solution. An elaborate Island vine fretboard inlay accents the guitar and gives it a one-of-a-kind look. This Taylor Hawaiian Koa Grand Symphony Cutaway body style has a Venetian cutaway.

    Taylor ES: Expression System

    Natural Sound Made Simple: People love the clear, full acoustic tone of their Taylors. That's why Taylor spent several years developing their own onboard acoustic pickup and preamp. Taylor's ground-breaking Expression System was designed to naturally amplify the warm acoustic sound of your guitar.

    The ES is an all-magnetic acoustic guitar pickup system. It works like a microphone to produce a natural acoustic sound. The point of an electric acoustic guitar is to amplify the sound so others can hear it, while maintaining the great sound. Previous electric acoustic guitars cannot pick up the pure sound as well as this magnetic system. This system gives you just a clean amplified acoustic guitar sound supported by three simple controls; volume, bass and treble.

    Nothing sounds as true and musical as a microphone. With that as a starting point, Taylor's David Hosler led the team responsible for the Expression System's breakthrough technology. Utilizing a unique Dynamic Body Sensor mounted to the soundboard, a Dynamic String Sensor embedded beneath the fingerboard, and a discrete preamp, the advanced ES technology is unlike any other guitar pickup system.

    The ES was designed in-house, alongside Taylor's acoustic guitars, which allowed us to build the ES seamlessly into the design of the guitar, for an integrated pickup system unlike any other. From the design and location of the body and string sensors to the voicing of the preamp, the ES is fully optimized for the Taylor sound. The elegant design, including the non-intrusive control knobs, also preserves the aesthetic of a Taylor guitar.

    Features:

    - Grand Symphony body shape which works well for strumming
    - Taylor 12 Strings have a particular bracing pattern to manage the string
    tension
    - ES electronics for fantastic natural acoustic tone, even when plugged in
    - Hawaiian Koa - Tropical wood with a big bold voice that starts bright and tight and opens into a midrange mahagony sound
    - Koa has existing brightness that has to be factored in
    - Koa works well with fingerstylists who use the pads of their fingers with a meaty touch
