718e (2014)
Price: $3,578 US MSRP / Series: 700
718e (2014)

Taylor’s biggest body style, the Grand Orchestra, blends a deep, complex voice with impressive tonal uniformity from top to bottom. Burly lows are balanced by a rich treble response, and unlike most other big-bodied guitars, the GO is responsive to a light touch. On the rosewood/spruce 718e, rosewood’s broad tonal spectrum helps deliver all the power and detail a player could ask for, from meaty open chords to lush fingerstyle arrangements. A warm Vintage Sunburst top and neck, creamy grained ivoroid binding, and the grained ivoroid Heritage Diamonds fretboard inlay bring beautiful refinement to an old-school look. Taylor’s proprietary Expression® System 2 acoustic electronics harness all that acoustic richness to produce a superb amplified sound.
