The DY84K is a round shoulder full-size dreadnaught with a spruce top and Koa back and sides. Koa is a rare and expensive tone wood from Hawaii, with a generous mid tone range, giving bright sparkling trebles and a generous bass end. A sought after K Yairi classic. This guitar is responsive to different playing styles and a great all rounder, particularly for fingerstyle and players with intricate right hand technique, and strummers looking for balance and bright tone. The sound hole is decorated with two rings of tinted maple and abalone. Plenty of nice touches in terms of aesthetics as you can see, and the detailed grain of the koa is a feast for the eyes. Great projection and volume.
