The Taylor K26ce
Unreal. Just unreal. The Koa on this new K26ce is breath taking. Up close, as it catches light, it appears to be on fire at every angle. View from a distance and a whole other profile appears.
Can you believe the back on this K26ce?
Upon playing this beauty, it was very obvious to us that this guitar takes a flat pick like a champ. Most Koa takes a bit of time to really open up. Not this one. It's a knockout straight outta the gate. No doubt about it, there is a distinct, full and incredibly round bass response on this guitar. Surprisingly warm, clear and big, it absolutely doesn't give up when pushed. Yet, light finger picking reveals shimmer and shine in the way of tonal complexity that Taylor is known for the world over. What a wonderful guitar for a singer to accompany themselves with.

Indian Rosewood binding, Island vine inlay on the fretboard from top to bottom, shaded edge burst and The Taylor Expression pickup system round out the exceptional detail on this fabulous guitar.

So, when it comes to looks, playability and sound. This guitar hits, what we call, the "POTW" trifecta. It's a stunner in every way and oh yeah, get this: It's a production model! Not a custom build. Unreal. Just Unreal. Hands down the Pick Of The Week.
The incredible top on this K26ce
