I've been looking 5 years for a good koa guitar......I must have played 30 koa guitars......I have yet to find one that didn't sound "jangly" to me. I just love the LOOK of koa....but as a tone wood, very difficult to find a good sounding one, to my ears, is not easy.

I'm looking at a Hummingbird Custom KOA model and want to know how it will sound vs my Songwriter Deluxe Studio EC. Anyone out there got one?


Are you talking about all Koa, including the top, or just the back & sides? Koa is similar in tone to mahogany, but very different from rosewood.
