Another incredible electro acoustic from Taylor from their newly revoiced 6 series for 2015. This one is a canon, it's wealth of bass and warmth in the midrange makes this guitar a must have for strummers and heavy hitters. The revoiced 6 Series this year are the result of Taylors experiment with Maple to produce a fuller sounding and less bright guitar that can be sustainably grown domestically as supply for other tonewoods start to run out in the coming years. We also love the dark gloss finish the new 6 series comes in, it really makes the flame in the wood sparkle.
Here's what Taylor has to say about this 618e:
"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."
