The Taylor K22ce Grand Concert Electro Acoustic Guitar in natural finish is a sumptuous guitar in every sense; this model is dripping with sophisticated charm from its cool shade burst finish that shows off the natural grain of the Koa beautifully, the sweetly designed Island Vine inlay, gold hardware and breath-taking timbre.
Superb Taylor Grand Concert
The Taylor K22ce is built using the small bodied Grand Concert profile, which features a Venetian cutaway to ensure greater upper fret access. The Grand Concert is perfect for players who prefer a smaller body shape, and is particularly useful for fingerstyle players and those who like to employ two-hand tapping techniques, as the diminutive body profile is much less cumbersome than other models. Also, the compact form of the body and tapered waist limits the opportunity for overtones to overwhelm the timbre of the K22ce.
Glorious Hawaiian Koa
The body has been constructed solely from Hawaiian Koa, a luxurious tonewood that produces rich tones from the very start, maturing into a truly outstanding model over time. The more you play your K22ce, the more it will develop its own unique flavour. The top is reinforced using CV bracing with relief rout, this bracing loosens the edges of the top, whilst retaining structural integrity, to increase flexibility and give a fuller, fatter sound without affecting articulation. Indian rosewood binding skirts the top and bottom tonewoods, creating a seamless connection between them.
Tropical Mahogany and Ebony Partnership
Joined to the body of the Taylor K22ce Electro Acoustic Guitar is a mahogany neck, which has been treated to a satin finish that gives it a silky smooth feel. Married to the neck is a heavenly 20-fret ebony fingerboard that is decorated with the gorgeous Island Vine inlay spanning its length - reappearing as the headstock inlay.
Expression System 2
Featuring three uniquely positioned and individually calibrated pickup sensors, the Expression System 2 is designed to capture a more dynamic range of acoustic sound than ever before. Together with Taylor’s custom-designed preamp, the Expression System 2 produces faithful and powerful amplified tone with superb response. Whether you plan to go through a PA system or directly into recording software, you can be sure that you will hear the natural beauty of the Taylor K22ce represented whole-heartedly.
The Taylor K22ce Grand Concert Electro Acoustic Guitar in natural finish isn’t just a guitar, it is a work of art. Taylor gold tuning machines provide a resilient support for the strings, whilst upholding the stylish aesthetic. The shaded edge burst finish is protected by a layer of gloss, ensuring that your pride and joy is preserved for as long as possible. If that wasn’t enough, Taylor has also included a deluxe hardshell case in brown with every model, as well as outstanding Elixir Phosphor Bronze HD Light strings, so as soon as your K22ce arrives, you are good to pick it up and play.
