The huge sound of a jumbo crossed with the harmonic complexity, articulation and nuance of Maple is the 618e in a nutshell – and the return of the Grand Orchestra offers something for everybody.
With truly massive headroom that just point-blank refuses to break up and a tonal / dynamic range that needs to be experienced to be believed, this jumbo offers power and depth yet also detail and sweetness hitherto unseen in such a big bold strummer.
With traditional non-cutaway symmetry, the 618e comes in a luxurious antique blond finish that sets the responsive and lively Sitka Spruce top perfectly in focus atop the beautifully figured maple back and sides.
Class and luxury are in abundance here, with a range of additional tasteful appointments including mother of pearl ‘Mission’ inlays, a gloss finish, Koa purfling, maple binding and deluxe Western floral hardcase.
V-Class bracing take levels of volume and sustain to new levels and you can expect the same low profile, smooth action, well intonated neck that set apart all US made Taylor guitars out from the rest – with expressive and transparent sounding ES2 electronics making the 618e a supremely versatile, road and stage ready sonic powerhouse.
