First Edition Grand Orchestra

Taylor's 718e First Edition acoustic-electric guitar celebrates the first run of the new Grand Orchestra series. With the 718e, you get the bold tone you can only expect from a back and sides made of genuine rosewood plus the balanced mids and shimmering highs of Sitka spruce top. Taylor went back to the drawing board for a louder, extremely balanced guitar and came up with the Grand Orchestra. This body shape, Taylor's largest, boasts Taylor's boldest, richest full-range voice yet. The Taylor 718e First Edition Grand Orchestra has a robust output, dynamic range and sensitive response for all types of players.

A classic tonewoods combination - Sitka spruce and Indian rosewood

Nothing beats the sound of real rosewood topped with spruce - and that's exactly what you get with the Taylor 718e First Edition Grand Orchestra.

Add to that the balanced tone and astonishing projection of the 718e's Indian rosewood back and sides, and you have a guitar with timeless tone.

First Edition means premium details and extras

As you've already noticed, this 718e First Edition is a special instrument indeed. On top of premium tonewoods, First Edition guitars have a few very collectible extras. There's a custom First Edition label inside the guitar, for starters. You also get a customized Grand Orchestra First Edition guitar strap and case plate. A Certificate of Authenticity and a special photo book complete the commemorative set of collectibles.

Renowned Taylor Expression System electronics

Designed to faithfully reproduce your guitar's native tone, the Taylor 718e Grand Orchestra First Edition's Expression System uses patented Dynamic Sensors to capture both top and string vibration with incredible detail.
