Taylor 818e

Brand:

Instrument Categories: ,



Presenting the newly redesigned Taylor Guitars 818e! Taylor Guitars celebrates their 40th anniversary this year with a redesign on their flagship 800 series guitars. The new design, guided by luthier Andy Powers, features new bracing patterns unique to each body shape, a lighter finish and some beautiful cosmetic changes. The result is a series of guitars that are well balanced with some increased warmth, midrange and sustain!

The Taylor 818e has a big, bold and complex tone with plenty of volume but it is also very responsive and versatile. 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!

The instrument Pictured is guitar number 77 of the first 200 instruments built. Guitars past the 200 range will be identical – except for the labels! – in terms of construction and pricing.
