Get Huge Tone with Taylor's 618 Grand Orchestra Guitar

The massive tone of maple meets a spruce top with the Taylor 618 Grand Orchestra acoustic guitar. Taylor's Grand Orchestra body shape, Taylor's largest, boasts Taylor's boldest, richest voice yet, one that blends low-end power with surprising balance. The torrefied Sitka spruce top, Big Leaf maple back, and maple sides create a clean tone that really projects. The Taylor 618 Grand Orchestra has a robust output, dynamic range and sensitive response for all types of players.

Taylor 618 Grand Orchestra at a Glance:
  • Choice tonewoods - sitka spruce meets maple
  • Grand Symphony body style gives you balanced sound and incredible projection
  • Beautiful, durable Taylor finish
Choice tonewoods - Sitka spruce meets Maple

The 618 Grand Orchestra, is a prime example of the high-quality tonewoods Taylor selects for their guitars. It features a torrefied Sitka spruce as its top, which gives you wonderful projection with the perfect amount of sparkle, and the Taylor 618's Big Leaf maple back and sides give it an extra bright and snappy tone. This guitar also features Adirondack spruce for the update 600 Series Advanced Performance bracing that gives you better tone, response, and sustain. Take it from the Sweetwater crew - the Taylor 618 will give you years of great performance.

Grand Symphony body style gives you balanced sound and incredible projection

Taylor's Grand Symphony body style, featured on the 618, is a more modern take on the sleek Grand Auditorium shape, but with the waist moved up toward the neck. This gives the 618 a slightly larger lower bout, giving you an excellent blend of power and projection, without losing the high-end definition of the Grand Auditorium body style.

Beautiful, durable Taylor finish

The lustrous finish used on the 618 was developed at Taylor for maximum durability and resistance to cold-checking. This ultra violet-cured polyester finish is also more environmentally friendly than traditional lacquer finishes. You get the feel and tonal advantages of traditional nitrocellulose lacquer, with the durability of a modern finish. The remarkable thinness of the finish allows the wood to resonate more freely for superior tone; it's also clearer than lacquer and won't yellow over time - a common problem with nitro finishes as they age. The Taylor finish gives you the best of both worlds.

Taylor 618 Grand Orchestra Features:
  • Grand Orchestra body shape has a bold, rich voice
  • Torrefied Sitka spruce top with Big Leaf maple back and maple sides offer big tone and powerful projection
  • 600 series advanced performance bracing offers better vibration transfer and tone
  • Loud performance and uniformly responsive lows and highs
  • Hand-rubbed brown sugar finish on the back and sides
  • Includes hardshell case
