Overview

418e (2015)

Taylor’s 418e blends the power and tonal complexity of our big-bodied Grand Orchestra with the broad frequency range of African ovangkol and spruce. The result is a sweeping, dynamic voice that’s brimming with detail. As big and bold as the sound is, the Grand Orchestra is incredibly balanced and responsive for a big body, making it a surprisingly versatile instrument that can also answer the call for lush fingerstyle arrangements. Clean, modern appointments include crisp white binding, Italian acrylic dot fretboard inlays, and a three-ring rosette, with Taylor’s onboard Expression System® 2 acoustic electronics providing professional grade amplified sound for performing or recording.

Features

Grand Orchestra

Taylor's biggest body shape blends power, detail and balance across the tonal spectrum.

Ovangkol

Although not as well-known as its Indian rosewood cousin, ovangkol shares many of the same properties, making it a versatile, great-sounding tonewood.

Sitka Spruce

The soundboard choice for most guitars, Sitka spruce produces a broad dynamic range and accommodates a versatile range of playing styles.

Expression System® 2

The Expression System® 2 captures more of a guitar’s dynamic properties using a breakthrough behind-the-saddle design.
