818e 2013

Price: Discontinued / Series: 800
818e 2013

Like its rosewood/spruce cousin, the 718e, the 818e shows off how sonically rich and colorful rosewood and spruce can sound in a big Grand Orchestra body style. For solo performers or scaled down acoustic acts whose guitars do the work of a backing band, the 818e’s broad tonal dimensions offer a full-voiced palette, and all that detail comes through in an amplified setting with Taylor’s Expression System® pickup. Visually the 818e adopts the crisp style of the 800 Series, featuring curly maple binding and a progressive pearl fretboard inlay. An optional tobacco or honey sunburst top is also available.
