Masterclass King Koa Guitars

The exceptional craftsmen at Breedlove Guitars have produced another outstanding instrument in the King Koa.  This soft cutaway Concert model guitar is meticulously made, skillfully combining Figured Koa for the back and sides and for the top, Western Red Cedar.  The soft satin neck is hand rubbed fine grained Mahogany with an Ebony fingerboard, bridge and peghead overlay. The saddle and nut are made of bone.  Bound in breathtaking crimson colored Master Class Bloodwood with Abalone purfling, this guitar also features an Abalone spoked rosette.  On the fretboard you will find a very intricate Mother-of-Pearl and Abalone inlay of a mermaid and dolphin.  In addition there is a seagull on the 5th fret.  This guitar is mesmerizing, once you see it; it is hard to take your eyes off of it.  When played, the King Koa just sings.  Loud and responsive especially in the lower register, it is a lively performer.  A true investment piece, this guitar will delight you and your family for generations to come.

"I have loved your guitars ever since I can remember. I toured your factory once, and I still remember it - was a visit to a magical place being a guitar player and woodworker. I am playing more finger style now so I bought an Master Class from Apple Music in Portland. I now have it at home, and I have picked it up at least four different times today to play it. Simply amazing, although in many ways there is nothing simple about it. The more I play it, the more my amazement of how fine an instrument I have chosen. I am hopelessly spoiled! I am in awe.
