Taylor Guitars 618e - NEW
Taylor’s Grand Orchestra 618e is the guitar equivalent of a grand piano, boasting a big, complex voice with a wonderfully dynamic response.
Here's Taylor Guitars Michael Lille playing this 618e with Taylor's head luthier Andy Powers on a 2014 Collings 290.
This Maple/Spruce edition features a back bracing profile that’s optimized for maple and a torrefied top, which produces an aged tonal character with greater acoustic resonance. Protein glues and an ultra-thin gloss finish minimize dampening.
A new, hand-rubbed “Brown Sugar” stain on the back and sides gives maple’s striking figure a beautiful violin-hued appearance without adding extra thickness to the finish.
Featured appointments include grained ivoroid Wings fretboard inlays, an inlaid ebony backstrap, ebony binding with ivoroid purfling, an ebony/ivoroid rosette, and a striped ebony pickguard, along with Taylor’s Expression System 2 acoustic electronics.
The guitar comes with a deluxe hardshell case.
*Please note all prices are in Canadian dollars, which is approximately 20% cheaper for US customers due to the higher US dollar.
