    Product Description

    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 hand-rubbed ‘Brown Sugar’ stain on the back and sides is achieved using an arduous process common in 1920's instrument making, giving 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.

    Loved it, but...
    Product Rating
    What is your opinion of this product?
    This guitar was just incredible. Taylors are known for their play-ability, but sometimes the acoustic tone can be a but tinny to my ears. This wasn't the case with the 618e! The reason I'm giving it a 3-star rating is because it had a finish crack down the center seam from the bridge. I called Taylor and they said that's very common for this the X18 series due to the way they're built. Call me crazy, but when spending this much money, I don't expect to be blown off by the builder when asking about a flaw. I sent it back, but I really did love this one!

    I always was fond of curvy women and curvy guitars
    What is your opinion of this product?
    Robert Taylor IMO builds the best I played all the top brands and decided that a sweet sounding 618 was my new honeydripper
