The brand new 618ce is a an absolutely gorgeous guitar to play and to look at! The largest of Taylor's body shapes, the Grand Orchestra body shape provides immense power and a great balance across the tonal spectrum. The back and sides are made from maple, re-voiced to produce greater warmth and volume, with a "brown sugar stained" finish, giving the usual pale appearance of maple a richer, darker shade, which most guitarists prefer on an acoustic. The maple is paired with a classic Sitka spruce top, lending itself to a wide variety of playing styles. The new Florentine cutaway comes to a sharp point, creating an elegant, horn-like shape. The 618ce is equipped with the Taylor Expression System 2. This breakthrough pickup sits behind the saddle, and amplifies the true, unique tone of each individual guitar. Other features include a striped ebony pickguard, Ivoroid Wings fret inlays, and a hard rock maple neck.
A few minor surface dings/scratches on the cutaway side of the body, as seen in photos. As can be seen in the photos, these imperfections are difficult to see unless the guitar is under a bright light.
