Koa - Koa

30th Anniversary King Koa Concert CE

Limited Edition

One look at the stunning, highly-figured top, back, and sides on this guitar and you’ll understand why it’s called the King Koa. Mesmerizing exotic koa outfits a Concert soft cutaway body style to deliver a well-balanced tone that is lively and loud. From the maple neck’s custom burst finish, which offers a warm visual complement to koa, to the abalone top purfling and bloodwood binding that spans its body, ebony fretboard, and asymmetrical headstock, every detail of the King Koa celebrates the 30th Anniversary of Breedlove’s dedication to detailed guitar making.

Guitar Portrait

We are pleased to present these detailed specifications for your 2021 Breedlove guitar, which was designed and handcrafted in Bend, Oregon. In addition to its dimensions, we have listed every piece of solid wood used in this model, giving its common name, scientific name and country of origin. We use no clear-cut wood. We salvage fallen timber or individually harvest trees to minimize impact on the forest. You can travel worry free with your Made in Bend Breedlove—no permits are needed. Still, if you plan on trekking internationally, we suggest printing this information and carrying it with your guitar to avoid misunderstandings or prolonged waits with customs officials.
