Overview

The first Grand Orchestra guitar to be built with V-Class bracing, the 818e showcases the power and resonance of a jumbo-style body alongside surprising soft-touch sensitivity and articulation. Indian rosewood and Sitka spruce deliver their distinctive combination of warm lows, pristine trebles and lush, blooming overtones, leaving a slight scoop in the midrange that's perfect for playing with other instruments or vocals. With an Antique Blonde top finish treatment, Mission inlays in mother-of-pearl and abalone, and a paua shell single-ring rosette, the 818e sports a vibrant aesthetic that sets it apart from its 800 Series counterparts. It ships with ES2 electronics in a deluxe hardshell case with a Western Floral pattern.

Features

Grand Orchestra

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

Indian Rosewood

The tonewood superstar. Popular, traditional, and versatile, Bob Taylor puts Indian rosewood among the greatest tonewoods ever.

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.

V-Class Bracing

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.
