Hawaiian koa’s close cousin, Tasmanian blackwood, is a fellow acacia wood species. Though it might not quite match koa’s cachet in terms of exotic beauty, its tonal range is similar, and visually it often exhibits some of koa’s same character traits. This batch of limiteds features nicely variegated sets paired with Sitka Spruce tops.
Designed as a seasonal alternative to our 400 Series, the blackwood guitars feature wood appointments that support an understated, all-natural vibe, perfect for an everyday or performance guitar that players can feel comfortable playing out in the world. Rock maple was chosen for many of the appointments, including a back mini wedge, the binding, and a “fishbone”-style rosette, which together add creamy counterpoints. Small dot inlays and a satin finish back and sides provide tidy touches that
lean toward aesthetic simplicity.
