Fans of Hawaiian koa’s vibrant sound will be excited to hear that it’s made its way into the 500 Series with this Grand Auditorium 514ce LTD. A Western red cedar top brings depth and warmth, blending with koa’s top-end shimmer and clarity for a balanced sound that will easily cut to the front of any mix. V-Class bracing powers this limited edition, providing extra volume and sustain that allow the natural tonal qualities of koa and cedar to bloom as notes and chords resonate. We’ve appointed this model with faux tortoiseshell body binding and West African ebony fretboard binding, along with Century inlays in grained ivoroid. Topping it off, the entire guitar is finished with a subtle edgeburst treatment that brings a visual depth to its glossy sheen. It ships with ES2 electronics in a deluxe hardshell case.
