Description

Details

When it comes to developing and designing acoustic guitars of an exceptional quality, the luthiers at Taylor are true masters. The 618e is built to the Grand Orchestra body profile, Taylor's most recent guitar shape which delivers with intense resonance. Taylor describe the 618e as being like a grand piano in guitar form, constructed using premium tonewoods to generate a well-balanced acoustic timbre.

GRAND ORCHESTRA BODY

The Grand Orchestra body profile is the newest of Taylor's shapes and it is also the biggest. Its larger size enables it to produce a compelling range of tones, all with plenty of volume. The 618e also features Advanced Performance bracing with relief rout which provides the body with more strength as well as enhancing the soundboard's ability to move, consequently the overall tone and sustain are improved.

Sitka spruce is the tonewood of choice in the body top and it is "roasted" to stimulate the natural aging process of the guitar. This provides the 618e with a dynamic response and a tone that resembles an older guitar. The back and sides are constructed using maple which is given a hand-rubbed, unique "Brown Sugar" finish. The pairing of spruce and maple add magnitude to the tones made available, providing clarity and ultimate tonal versatility.

NECK

Hard rock maple is used in the neck and given a smooth, satin finish and scarf neck joint. The neck feels incredibly comfortable and is certainly built to last. Topping the neck is an ebony fingerboard with 20 frets at your service. The decorative grained ivoroid wing inlays guide you from one fret to another with total confidence.

ELECTRONICS

The Expression System 2 electronics fitted in the 618e are an innovative creation by Taylor. This preamp takes the piezo pickup and gives it a modern twist to improve the amplification of the 618e. Unlike many other electro acoustic models, the Taylor 618e has a piezo pickup which is in fact behind the saddle, with three individually calibrated sensors that meticulously transfer the guitar's natural tone through an amp.

The preamp has controls for Volume and Tone which allow for simple command of your tone.

HARDWARE AND FINISH

The back of the headstock features an ornamental grained ivoroid wing inlay while the nickel tuners uphold tuning integrity with precision. The natural finish of the body top is accompanied by an ebony / ivoroid rosette and a striped ebony pickguard, protecting the soundboard against scratches.

Taylor include a Deluxe Hardshell case in Brown to shield the guitar when in storage or taken on the road. The Taylor 618 is a superior electro acoustic model that produces a full-bodied acoustic voice across the frequencies.
