Price: Discontinued / Series: 2014 Fall Limiteds

Taylor’s shapely Grand Orchestra footprint provides plenty of real estate to frame the wild beauty of blackheart sassafras back and sides on this limited edition 718e. The power and dynamic range of the GO body is enhanced by our Advanced Performance bracing, and it takes the tonal flavors of the sassafras/spruce combo to another level, yielding an intriguing mix of warmth, focus and top-end sparkle. Wood-rich detailing includes rosewood binding and back strip, rosewood top edge trim, and rosewood outlines around the abalone rosette. Other touches include mother-of-pearl Heritage Diamond fretboard inlays and nickel tuners. The guitar comes performance-ready with Taylor’s Expression System® 2 electronics and ships in a Taylor deluxe hardshell case.
