Koa is a fairly dense wood that, when used as a soundboard, produces low overtones, lots of clarity, and a forward midrange presence. Over time it will open up with a bit more warmth. The McPherson Koa soundboard is a hybrid top, layered with Cedar which adds structural integrity.
Koa back & sides give the tone a mixture of breath and bass focus. Altogether, this guitar produces a clear tone with controlled articulate bass, airy treble, and a lovely midrange presence.
