Taylor 618e Grand Orchestra Guitar New for 2015

Here is the new 618e Grand Symphony Guitar. It features a torrified Spruce top and Andy Powers new custom bracing system for Maple. This is a new favorite for all the fans of the new Grand Orchestra's. One of our customers call the Grand Orchestra the acoustic equivalent of a Les Paul into a Marshall Stack.

From the Taylor website:

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.
