Recently reintroduced after our redesign of the commanding Grand Orchestra body shape, the 618e offers an experience unlike any other in the Taylor line. This model features our largest body style made with solid Big Leaf maple and Sitka spruce, resulting in a vibrant, warm, transparent sound that's uniquely reflective of each individual player's stylistic quirks and technique. Boasting an appointment package reserved for Grand Orchestra models, the 618e sports Mission fretboard and peghead inlays in mother-of-pearl, maple binging with koa purfling, a single-ring paua rosette, and a glossy Antique Blonde finish treatment. It ships with ES2 electronics and a hardshell case.
Taylor's biggest body shape blends power, detail and balance across the tonal spectrum.
Revoiced to produce greater warmth, complexity, volume, sustain and responsiveness
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.
Our patented V-Class bracing is a revolutionary new pattern — a new sonic engine — that marks a major shift away from traditional steel-string bracing patterns.
