Taylor 618e Maple

Brand:

Instrument Categories: ,



When I think of a jumbo bodied maple guitar my first impression is really digging in with a flat pick for a bright and loud cutting tone. When Taylor guitars redesigned their  jumbo body guitar now call the Grand Orchestra they retained these characteristics but also created a more powerful complex voicing that is really well balanced for a large guitar.

This body shape features a new bracing pattern which facilitates better responsiveness for a dynamic attack. This allows for players using a finger style technique or light strumming to get loads of tone and balance from large guitar! Typically maple has a very bright and solid note fundamental with a fast decay and this new bracing enhances maples natural tonal pallet to produce a more full bodied voice with increased sustain!
