000-12 Koa

000-12 Koa Guitar

The 000-12 Koa is Borges' koa wood version of 000-12 Fret model. Built with the lightness and responsiveness in every register which is typical of Borges guitars, the 000-12 Koa has an expressive throatiness through its mid range that is hard to put into words. Borges' 000 Koa guitar is another example of a fine fingerstyle instrument with a sound that harkens back to its classical past.
