In yet another move to overcome the CITES regulation, Taylor has introduced Copafera as the body woods for the 200 Deluxe guitars sold outside America.
The new guitars will be coded with suffix CF to denote copafera for back and sides.

Since the 200 series guitars have layered body woods, the move to include copafera should mean minimal effects on tone. If anything, it is the core wood poplar that we are hearing. 🙂
