Special Design, custom selected Exotic Koa and Sitka Spruce with just a touch of Myrtlewood!
This custom was designed by Music World for store stock, and it's just waiting for the right guitarist or enthusiast to find it! The goal was simple - let the beauty of Exotic Koa shine on this guitar, the pictures speak for itself! Carmel colors, a very nice sapwood strip in the middle and figure throughout the sides and back. Koa and Myrtlewood are said to share some similar qualities, and we decided to use Myrtlewood, a light coloring as a binding option - simple and elegant with a little flare on the winged bridged.
The sound of Koa is said to be sweet, present in the mid-range and visceral. But not heavy and rich like a rosewood, rather intimate. Pairing this with Sitka Spruce adds a little meat and stability to the sound without being dark, it's a real pleasure to play. Specs for this guitar are below
