618e
Taylor’s Grand Orchestra is the guitar equivalent of a grand piano, boasting a big, complex voice with a wonderfully dynamic response. Our maple/spruce edition features a back bracing profile that’s optimized for maple and a torrefied top, which produces an aged tonal character with greater acoustic resonance. Protein glues and an ultra-thin gloss finish minimize dampening. A new, hand-rubbed “Brown Sugar” stain on the back and sides gives maple’s striking figure a beautiful violin-hued appearance without adding extra thickness to the finish. Featured appointments include grained ivoroid Wings fretboard inlays, an inlaid ebony backstrap, ebony binding with ivoroid purfling, an ebony/ivoroid rosette, and a striped ebony pickguard, along with Taylor’s Expression System® 2 acoustic electronics. The guitar comes with a deluxe hardshell case.

Grand Orchestra
Taylor’s biggest body shape redefines the playing experience of a big acoustic guitar by blending power and complexity with balance and responsiveness. Unlike other large-bodied guitars, the GO not only welcomes strong strumming, but also responds readily to players with a lighter touch.

Sitka Spruce
The most commonly used wood for guitar tops, Sitka generates a broad dynamic range and accommodates numerous playing styles, from aggressive strumming to fingerpicking.

Maple
Maple has long been associated with a bright acoustic sound, but Taylor’s maple guitars are voiced to bring out greater warmth, richness and sustain. This broadens maple’s tonal range from a single-dimension sound to a more musical, more versatile voice.

Expression System 2
Taylor’s breakthrough acoustic pickup marks a major advance in piezo technology thanks to a patented behind-the-saddle design. The unique placement of three piezo sensors captures a more dynamic range of acoustic sound and responds well in a variety of settings.

No cutaway
There’s a lot to be said for the clean, traditional look of a non-cutaway acoustic guitar. If you don’t plan to play in the upper register, which is made more accessible with a cutaway,  or if you simply prefer the symmetrical hourglass contours of a guitar, a non-cutaway model is a great option.
