Experience the Lush Shimmer of Hawaiian Koa - The Taylor K68e LTD 12-String Orchestra Acoustic Guitar

As one of Taylor's very first 12-string guitars built with V-Class bracing in the jumbo-style Grand Orchestra body shape, the K68e LTD offers a totally distinctive playing experience elevated by its gorgeously figured Hawaiian koa back, sides and top. Serving up big, lush, sparkling octave shimmer with a refined midrange character, this model benefits from the large lung capacity of the Grand Orchestra body, which yields serious projection and tonal depth with remarkable sensitivity to a soft touch, while our V-Class bracing dials up louder volume, longer sustain and cleaner harmony between notes.


  • All-solid figured Hawaiian koa for lush 12-string sparkle
  • V-Class bracing for enhanced volume, sustain and harmony
  • Grand Orchestra body yields rich power and touch sensitivity
  • Double-mounted, reverse-strung bridge for warmer sound
  • Includes ES2 electronics and deluxe hardshell case


This model is appointed with wood-forward elements such as maple body binding, a single-ring maple rosette and an intricate Spring Vine inlay in maple. Other appointments include ultra-precise Gotoh 510 tuners in antique gold and a gloss-finish body of shaded edgeburst.


Grand Orchestra

Taylor's biggest body shape blends power, detail and balance across the tonal spectrum.

Hawaiian Koa

Few woods carry the allure of Hawaiian koa, with its gorgeous figure and sweet, complex tone. Koa has a visual beauty that is instantly inspiring, while greater sonic rewards will unfold over time, as warm, sweet overtones gradually emerge.

Expression System® 2

The Expression System® 2 captures more of a guitar’s dynamic properties using a breakthrough behind-the-saddle design.

V-Class Bracing

Taylor's patented V-Class bracing is a revolutionary new pattern — a new sonic engine — that marks a major shift away from traditional steel-string bracing patterns.
