I think its 24, Ill double check ASAP. This KOA's voice has a ton of clarity. I think it is a finger pickers dream. Every note is pronounced and articulate. Thanks for asking.

Fun facts about KOA:
Koa is the largest endemic tree in Hawai'I-the species exists naturally nowhere else in the world. It is the fastest growing of Hawaii's valuable hardwoods. It can grow as much as an inch in diameter per year, reaching 100 feet in height, attaining a trunk diameter of 5 feet or more. It was historically the material of choice for carved ocean-going canoes. Koa wood is the most prized cabinet and furniture wood in Hawai'i.

KOA 101:
Lightweight, rigid, yet bendable, Koa is a great material for guitar manufacturers to work with. When paired with the right soundboard, it also has a wonderful tonal quality. If you can’t decide between maple and rosewood, Koa offers the best of both worlds: the crisp, clarity of the former and warmth and thick tone of the latter.

KOA as a tonewood:
Koa guitars can vary tonally, in accordance with density and weight. They are most often described as a warm sounding Mahogany to a brighter sounding Rosewood. A lower density koa guitar tends to produce a more mahogany tone, whereas denser sets tend towards the rosewood spectrum.
