Taylor 618E Grand Orchestra Electro Acoustic Guitar Natural
The Taylor 618e Grand Orchestra Electro Acoustic Guitar is part of Taylor's effort to reinvent their guitars, creating an instrument that can produce a warm, rich tone from a maple body. With specially selected sitka spruce tops that produce incredible tones and enhancements, to custom-calibrated bracing that unleashes more volume, low-end warmth and sustain, the redesigned guitar redefines Taylor?s 600 series. The grand orchestra body shape blends together power, balance and detail across the tonal spectrum, offering a powerful low end boom whilst still retaining an excellent response to light picking. The acoustic guitar also features Taylor?s expression system 2 electronics, enhance the playing experience by delivering clear, natural-sounding amplified tones that make it perfect for gigging or recording. Taylor's Redesigned 618e Guitar gives players a multi-dimensional musical voice that responds wonderfully to every playing style
The grand orchestra body shares many sonic similarities to the grand auditorium shape, offering versatile tones that are well-balanced and suitable for all styles of strumming and fingerstyle playing. The grand orchestra design provides a strong lower midrange and an improved bass response thanks to its deep shape. Also providing incredibly versatile dynamics, the Taylor guitar is able to produce deep, robust sounds. Maple wood is used for the body's back and sides, making the guitar bright and loud, while allowing each note to sing clearly when playing chords. The top of the body is crafted from solid sitka spruce, enhancing the natural maple tones whilst providing an incredibly broad dynamic range that yields crisp articulation, perfect for the fingerpicking player.
The redesigned Taylor 618e features design nuances that will change how it looks and feels. The use of protein glue optimizes the tonal transfer between key wood components and an ultra-thin, 3.5-mil gloss finish to minimize dampening. The back of the guitar features a beautiful voilin-hued appearance without adding extra thickness to the finish thanks to the new, hand-rubbed "Brown Sugar" stain on the back and sides.
The Advance performance bracing pattern features customised bracing profiles and placement for each body shape to optimise their inherent strengths. This bracing pattern uses side braces as well as the standard setup, adding rigidity and helping to maximise both top and back movement. The overall effect is an enhanced midrange, sustain, and tone that features plenty of warmth.
For ultimate playability and peace of mind, the 618ce guitar features Taylor's unique NT neck design. The NT neck was designed to give players a straighter, more stable guitar neck, resistant to common problems such as changes in humidity. The neck sits in a custom fit pocket along with laser-cut spacers. There's a perfect neck angle for each Taylor guitar, and these precision spacers create it. Best of all, because there is no glue used in the NT neck design, maintenance and adjustments can be made by trained technicians in a matter of minutes.
The Taylor Expression System 2 is a revolutionary pickup design that delivers the latest in Taylor's ongoing innovation in acoustic guitar amplification. The heart of the ES2 is Taylor's proprietary behind-the-saddle pickup, which features three uniquely positioned and individually calibrated pickup sensors. The location of the sensors enables a more dynamic range of acoustic sound to be captured than ever before. Together with Taylor's custom designed professional audio grade preamp, this system produces exceptional amplified tone and responsiveness. On stage through a PA, plugged into your favourite acoustic amplifier, or direct into recording software, the Expression System 2 faithfully conveys the voice of your Taylor guitar.
