C2078AXP-KOA – Elite Plus, Koa

The Elite Plus features a AAA grade solid-spruce top with LX scalloped bracing, figured Koa veneer, abalone body/fretboard inlays, and a deluxe ebony fretboard bridge. A Contour composite body maximizes acoustic output and is ergonomically designed for comfort in any playing position.

Laser cut, exotic wood epaulettes on the upper and lower bouts enhance string vibration and sustain by improving soundboard efficiency. This gives the guitar a fast and even response from the lightest touch to hard grinding power chords. A cutaway offers full access to the gloss-finished, 5-piece mahogany/maple neck.

The OP-Pro Studio preamp includes a compressor, four band equalizer, and a ¼” output jack that connects to virtually any sound system, stage amp, or recording console. Producing unmatchable live tones and clarity, this guitar is everything you’ve always wanted a high performance instrument to be. (Case Included.)

Street Price: $1,199
