Hardwood Koa is a visually stunning tonewood with alternating bands of color. It has a sweet-sounding tone that's both loud and warm (like mahogany).
Our back and side sets are Grade AAA Koa, matched for color and grain. Air dried and stable, koa accepts stain well and is easy to sand.
Bookmatched set of two. When joined they're large enough for a Dreadnought size guitar. Sides are unprofiled (rectangular) and unbent.
