After playing the Breedlove King Koa and thoroughly enjoying it, we have often wondered what a King Koa with a matching Koa top and headstock would look and sound like. Well here it is, an all Koa Custom C25.
This instrument has the same Breedlove Retirement Grade flamed Koa used on the “King Koa” model only we added a matching Flamed Koa top and Head stock cover as starters. Then we had it bounded in Master Class Rosewood with Black white Black purfling. It has a solid Mahogany neck that seems to somehow match the color of the rest of the guitar.
It is equipped with Gold and Black Gotoh tuners and a wide Master Class Abalone rosette around the sound hole with matching Rosewood rim. This guitar is absolutely over the top but in order to keep the cost on the more manageable side wel replaced the beautiful but costly Mermaid and Dolphin inlay normally found on the King Koa with traditional off set dot position markers. Trust me this guitar does not need anything else.
So how does it sound? Well if you like the rich warm sound of aged Koa you will love this instrument. The Koa top adds a new dimension to the sound with more sustain added to that warm sweet Koa tone. Rich with harmonics, here is your chance to own a very unique instrument that collectors and touring professionals alike would kill for.
