Koa Tone Wood - Suhr Guitars

Koa ​
Koa comes exclusively from the island of Hawaii. Our Koa is hand selected by our wood supplier to meet our high standards. It is medium to heavy in weight, and can exhibit defined curly and flamed grain patterns. Koa produces rich, clear tones with focused upper-mids. It has a warm sound similar to mahogany, but is generally brighter with tighter lows. Koa’s focused tone makes it popular among rock and metal players. It is also an ideal top wood for a chambered body. ​
