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.
