Taylor Launches the 700 Series Koa Models

Taylor Launches the 700 Series Koa Models

Taylor expands its koa models with these "select-grade" guitars featuring an organic aesthetic and punchy sound.

The reimagined series launches with two new guitar models: the Grand Auditorium 724ce and Grand Concert 722ce. The new all-koa 700 Series brings the koa personality to the line compared to Taylor’s existing, highly-figured Koa Series, channeling a more organic aesthetic. Taylor master builder Andy Powers designed the guitars with ultra-thin matte finish and a modified back bracing pattern, a combination that minimizes the damping effect to produce a punchier, more vibrant and player-reflective koa guitar.

Taylor Grand Concert 722ce


  • Select-grade koa: Boasts rich color variegation and straight grain structure Ultra-thin matte finish
  • Feel: The thin open-pore finish creates a warm and inviting tactile sensation
  • Sound: Together with slightly altered back bracing, the voicing is different from our Koa Series: a livelier, punchier, more direct response

PRS Guitars and Ted McCarty family drop “Theodore” trademark objection, and Gibson agrees to drop opposition to PRS’s “594” and “Silver Sky Nebula” trademarks and trademark applications.

PRS Guitars yesterday announced that it has withdrawn its objection to Gibson’s registration of the “Theodore” trademark. In a press release, PRS stated it continues to hold dear and protect its long-standing agreement with Ted McCarty and the McCarty family regarding the exclusive rights to the “McCarty” trademark and to McCarty’s name and persona, first developed directly with Ted himself more than 25 years ago. After a series of private negotiations, Gibson has also agreed to drop its opposition to PRS’s “594” and “Silver Sky Nebula” trademarks and trademark applications.
