Choice tonewoods – Sitka spruce meets Maple

The 618e Grand Orchestra, is a prime example of the high-quality tonewoods Taylor selects for their guitars. It features a torrefied Sitka spruce as its top, which gives you wonderful projection with the perfect amount of sparkle, and the Taylor 618e’s Big Leaf maple back and sides give it an extra bright and snappy tone. This guitar also features Adirondack spruce for the update 600 Series Advanced Performance bracing that gives you better tone, response, and sustain. Take it from the Sweetwater crew – the Taylor 618e will give you years of great performance.

Grand Symphony body style gives you balanced sound and incredible projection

Taylor’s Grand Symphony body style, featured on the 618e, is a more modern take on the sleek Grand Auditorium shape, but with the waist moved up toward the neck. This gives the 618e a slightly larger lower bout, giving you an excellent blend of power and projection, without losing the high-end definition of the Grand Auditorium body style.

Taylor Expression System 2 electronics deliver superior sound onstage

If you play plugged in, then you’re going to love the Taylor Expression System 2 (ES2) electronics built into your 618e acoustic-electric guitar. The key to this fantastic system is the 3-section proprietary pickup located behind the saddle. Because of where it’s positioned and how it’s integrated into the Taylor 618e’s saddle, the ES2 pickup provides you with remarkably clear and accurate sound. In addition to a master volume control, a pair of tone controls let you tweak your highs and lows to get the sound you need, and a discreet phase switch offers vital onboard feedback suppression.
